Monetary Freedom

Poem By Randy McClave

I saw you lying there on the ground
Were you waiting to just be found,
Many pedestrians I saw pass you by
But, this time, not I.
Now, I can buy.

Like a woman, you're a temptation and a tease
Just to see how quickly that you can please,
Finally for once I won't be a window shopper
I now can walk past any store, both proud and proper.

I quickly came and I scooped you up
As though placing a minnow into a plastic cup,
Into my pocket you then quickly went
Then I thought, were you heaven or hell sent?
Quickly I was elevated to a different standing
I now felt both mighty, and commanding,
Off to buy me a gift that I really don't need
Instead of using it for bills, or for food to feed.

I then thought how lucky that I truly am
Some people get bacon, but I got the lamb,
Like a butterfly to a higher social status I did emerge
I could finally purchase, and frivolously splurge.

I leisurely passed by a favorite store
Beside it was standing a person who was poor,
I know that his life and that his dreams are probably dim
So, my newly found gift, I tossed it to him.
His future now it is my prelim.

I heard the world crying
As though she was dying,
And then came the rain
As though sympathy to her pain,

Guard Your Heart

Guard your heart as if it were gold
Guard it from thieves, so it won't be stolen or sold,
Protect it surely as you would protect your love
Keep it safe and protected and always there of.

Then He Cried

When he left his mother and the doctor spanked his hide
In that delivery room he then first cried,
But, that cry that he uttered so proudly and loud
Was a proclamation to all, that he'll make his mother proud.


Victory is ours!
Said one crow to the other,
As they soared in the sky above.
For below them they had spied

Boxer's Chess

I am no man's rook
I go wherever that I look,
No one controls my every move
What I do, only I approve.

I Am My Father's Son

I Am My Father's Son
That is who I am,
Though I am, still his child
I am still a man.
