Casting for Taxes! By L. Don Oliver
Place one bead in the mouth, Arch both hands ___; Twist and fling it out, There is much lucre to be __;
With twine attached to one wrist, Yank on it real _; Pull it in upon the dock, Shake and it will __;
Gather up all the bouncing bounty, Place it in the Government's _; They can consume it far better than you, And they will without any _;
The President needs another Hawaiian Vacation, The Congress more exotic foreign "Fact Finding" ___; The Special Interests want another trillion dollar loan, And the tax payers will be forced to "foot" their __;
The Lantern's Glow By. L. Don Oliver
Comes a light through the forest, Preying nocturnal creatures there; Their eerie shadows are dancing, But, she doesn't seem to care;
In the city of the vaulted, Where ghosts and goblins roam; A place that, soon one day, She will call her home;
The glow from her lantern, Upon her journey each night; Through the maze of the departed, Extinguishes her darkened fright;
Many dreams have come, And many dreams have gone; Through all these years, He was her only one;
She treasures all the moments, Together, they held past; Alas, life is so fleeting, Pleasured moments never last;
Silent words are spoken, Unto her cherished one; Soon she will join him, When life's tasks are done;
The snow gathers around her, But, deep in her heart she knows; Nothing seems to dismay her, As the cold wind blows;
The winds begin to dwindle, The snow turns to frozen rain; The only reality that sustains her, That she, will be with him again;
