    In this sleepy part of town
    The roads are starched white
    The townfolks gossiping
    In this sleepy part of town
    I watch with a frown.

    In this town where stores open late
    Each meal is delayed
    Or served too early
    In this town where stores open late
    I watch with distaste.

    In a town where stories are given a new twist
    What was the story is either added
    Or it is lacking
    In this town where stories get new twists
    I curl my hands into fists.

    And the strength that has led me here
    will be the strength to lead me away.

    Just read read this one.......THE TONGUE
    "The boneless tongue,so small and weak
    can crush and kill declares the Greek"
    "The tongue destroys a greater hoard" the Turks asserts, "than the sword"
    A Persian proverb wisely saith "A lenghty tongue-an early death";
    Or sometimes takes this form instead "Don't let your tongue cut off your head"
    "The tongue can speak a word whose speed" the Chinese say,"outstrips the steed;"
    While Arab sages this impart, "The tongue's great storehouse is the heart."
    From the Hebrew wit this maxim sprung, "Though feet should slip,never let the tongue."
    The sacred writer crowns the whole,"Who keeps his tongue doth keep his soul"

    Proverbs13:3 (NIV)

    John Boy it’s good to be back!

    Every time I read verses like this, I come to wonder how this people put those words into phrases that are so soothing.
    Probably the answer is … PASSION.
    In those times, there were no electric, or this e-phenomenon. So it was all nature, people, feelings, ideas rolled into poetry.
    So now, the passion on e-phenomenon is an explosion and it might kill Poetry along…

    GO POETS! post it –


    POETS gone but they never go to HELL. They just hide between pages.



    Blame The Boy

    Growing fast
    His boyhood wanes
    In the curtain of his face
    In the texture of his skin
    His cheek used to be a pinch
    Between forefinger and thumb
    Everybody could shrink voices
    By his boyhood charm

    His first cry was sworn to angel
    For sure nothing to struggle
    Seeking entourage
    Of his bright future
    He is full of love a boy can seek
    And never an inch of stick
    Made him scolded sick

    But society has its crime
    Dark guru poisons blood
    Powdery smoke invades soul
    And a life, like a toy car
    Lying crumpled on the wall

    I want to blame the boy
    But what about the tormentor
    I want to blame authorities
    But what about the generals
    I want to blame the parents
    But what about the society
    Now… My boy, too many

    There once was a guy name Rhoody
    Who lived in Dumaguete
    He like to drink Beer
    Whoop, hollar and cheer,
    And now he's wobbly as spaghetti

    A true masterpiece

    [Roo-dee]


    Shooting out from Germany
    Not as missile.
    Cause war was over
    Bullets fly but gods collect them
    Out in the sky
    Turning them into tanks
    And breathing stuff
    To send his message under the seas
    To tell tales of corals and fishes
    And goodwill and peace
    Shooting out from Germany
    A shooting star smashed at Villa Alegre
    Star of DI, it has to be
    His name’s Rhoody

    Could freeze my @ss of in England or be grumpy at home
    Could drive with a camper through Holland, pray for forgiveness in Rome
    Could live in the wild in Alaska, work on a vessel abroad

    prefer beer, chicks and great diving, that’s why I am here....
