Born free

No limb, no limits, no problems for me Those silly meat limbs, no, I’m meant to be free. Who needs ten fingers or toes or two feet? Maybe even my arms are limiting me. They flop all around when I … Continue reading

Political Party – Teach yourself (Song Parody)

(To the tune of Garden Party by Ricky Nelson) Good morning everybody, sit down so we can begin, I’m going to share with you a lesson, I won’t repeat my self again. There are two political parties, they go by a few different names But don’t make a mistake about it, they operate the same It is all politics, learn this lesson now, They try to trick everybody so you got to teach yourself The media’s involved, they’ve all been bought and paid, They want everyone to buy their garbage, and an continue to donate And over in the corner are the people that think independently They shake their heads in disgusts, at everything they see But it’s OK for now, we still have time to think Don’t let them do it for you, you got to teach yourself They keep pointing their fingers, saying the other ones to blame, But the people are the ones that always suffer, when they play this game I think it is time for the people to turn off their TV Sit down and talk with their neighbors about everything they see I say, take a stand, let’s think independently, Go talk to every body, and don’t just listen to me Someones gotta win the election and I hope it’s someone good A person that acts as We the people and not for the corporate hoods If you gotta vote for someone, think of more than just yourself The President represents us all not just the people with wealth But it will be OK, if we learn our lessons now, Please talk to everybody, don’t just think of yourself. Yes, we’ll be OK, if we come together now, Please talk to everybody, before election day.

Wheelchairs, I’ve had a few

When I was four years old my father gave my brother a skateboard. It took him about 10 minutes to hit his face on the ground. There was blood but thankfully no need for stitches. He could have given up … Continue reading
