The Trampled Moral High Ground ~ 1 Quick Limerick #067

To prince who kills, the fake prez remains true,
The moral high ground, he’ll always eschew,
His dark, depraved, fucked-up feelings,
Doth plunge beneath big-bucked dealings,
That is because he hates reporters, too!

The Disgraceful Embrace ~ 1 Quick Limerick #066

 

He’ll ravish women, grab at private places,
He’ll sleep with white sheeted, brown shirted bases,
For tyrant peers he feels crushes,
Over his FOX friends he gushes,
He’ll lavish sychophants with his embraces.

Maroon 5’s Sunday Morning (Sunday Songs Series Wk #10)

Welcome to another of our Sunday Songs get-togethers. This week, the Maroon 5 composition, Sunday Morning, lyrically relates the soap opera-esque tale of a rain-stormy, weekend winding down… of the bittersweet encounter where the living / loving for the moment couple, at first glance, seems destined to eternal togetherness… yet… upon doing our double take, we soon discover that modern life. harsh realities are about to catch up with them… split them up… hence the impassioned pleas that the road which looms ahead will someday… somehow… double back so they can eventually meet again.

And speaking of future meetings… the musical road we’ve been on can double back right here… seven days from now (or at any other time that’s convenient to you). Be sure to return for installment #11 of our Sunday Song Series.

From the Oh BTW Dept… while auditioning YouTube clips, I discovered that so many videographers and/or performers had turned in primo work that, in addition to the above clip I’ve opted to include the following links to 5 more Sunday Morning Bonus Tracks…

Maroon 5 Live on Letterman

An Additional Oh BTW… for anyone who has missed our past, Sunday journeys… or would like to revisit any of our former musical destinations… they are all conveniently archived within my music category.

 

 

A Quick Question re a Higher Priority?

 

Here in my homeland, we voted this past November 6th. Here in my home state, 2,346,713 Michiganders (56%) approved a ballot proposal to legalize the recreational usage of Marijuana for 21+ aged adults.

While it is not my intent to disparage those ISO a relatively harmless, occasional buzz (so long as they’re not stoned while driving, piloting jets, operating nuclear reactors, wielding scalpels, etc.) the stark reality is that our political higher authorities know that their nefarious machinations stand a far better chance of flying under the radar when nearly everyone else is chronically flying high.

Ergo, the following question does come to mind…

Instead of pharmacuetically, habitually getting wasted within a rightwing politician endorsed, societal wasteland… instead of running away from said society… is it not our higher priority to really give a damn… to stay sufficiently sober and engaged… to defy those evil political entities… to work towards creating a nondiscriminatory, emotionally fulfilling, financially rewarding, relatively free of sorrow, stress and strife society that everyone would be running towards?

While… by and large… my question is rhetorical, your comments… if any… are still welcome.

 

 

A Fleeting Meeting ~ Sunday Songs Series

Welcome to Week #9 of our Sunday Songs Series. During this musical adventure, we’ll be giving a listen to the mega-talented, legendary Ms. Laura Nyro and Ms. Patti Labelle. On 11/17/1971 this dynamic duo released a cover songs, studio LP, Gonna Take a Miracle… that disc’s lead track being I Met Him on a Sunday… composed by Doris Jackson, Addie Harris McPherson, Beverly Lee and Shirley Alston Reeves… collectively known as The Shirelles).

In short, Labelle and Nyro’s doo-wop / pop, mostly acappella, delivered narrative features a fleeting whirlwind romance… the fate of a lover, who fails to show up one particularly important Friday.

Of course, unlike that undependable Romeo, you can count on me to meet you back here in seven days for yet another installment of our Sunday Song Series.

How To Spell T-Y-R-A-N-T (1 Quick Limerick #065)

 

He lusts for parades which roll out warfare’s might,
He meets / beats the press with tirades and fierce fight,
He yanks reporter’s credentials,
He can’t grasp voting essentials,
He heils the alt-right and spurns all oversight.
