There may not be any tomorrows. 
There is no time for us my friend, to ponder on our sorrows"

"Sunday, Sunday, Sunday"

Every Day
Something dreadful
seems to wash up on shore
EveryDay
Someone or something
wants from me more

Every Day
I feel that
I must be blessed
Every Day
I remind myself
as I get myself dressed

Every Day
I listen
as the tube spits bad news
Every Day
I do this
as I tie on my shoes

Every Day
I trudge off
and get myself to work
Every Day
I'm thankful
Miley Cyrus doesn't twerk

Every Night
I slough off
the troubles of the day
Every Night
I thank God
for another
as I pray


Just a little diddy this Sunday morning being thankful for all I have. 
A tiny title homage to my pal Don Wilbanks​ and KOMA radio from back in the day. Don I hope the lightning strike did not tear up too much of your equipment. Reference to Miley because if she wants to dance like that she needs to gain 15 pounds and grow out her hair....  :-)

"Almost Infamous"

I'm not famous
No
No I never plan to be
I'm just a storyteller
Of people
and places I see

If you were to look at me
And see I am somewhere else
It's no reflection upon you
See I probably am
lost someplace in myself

You see it takes a bit
to get the ole muse to awake
There's no moving her
on your timeline
Not even if you shake
But when she's ready
the words and rhymes tumble
From a dull roar to a loud rumble
Like bricks and mortar falling
in an earthquake

JS 2015

Dedicated to all the other wordsmiths out there. Keep doing what you do!

"Dazed and a mused"

I've been dazed and a mused
for so long it's not true
Sweet Greek Goddess
I want to party with you

Poetic license taken on Led Zeppelin lyrics!  :-)

"Planes, Trains, and Automobiles"

Once again
the train's run off the rails
The plans of mortal men
so very often fail

We live our lives
so oft to chance
Taking it all on faith
without a second glance

The miss torque of a nut
loose lynch pin on the brake
The puff of that first cigarette
is really all that it takes

Go this way or that way
The ebb and the flow
The truth of the matter is
you'll never really know

So take heart friend
as you get in and turn the key
That today it will not end
With you plowing into me

JS 2015

Dedicated to those 8 souls that lost their lives to chance, and to the 200 others that did not and wonder why..........

"Early morning to dew"

In the quietest hour
Just before the dawn
I awoke softly
So's to not disturb her
Stifling a yawn
 
Shuffling into the kitchen
To fix my self a cup
And enjoy the rising sun
Before the rest of the family gets up

Enjoying the peaceful parting
of the nightly mists
The sun begins its magic
As I prepare my mental lists

Of things to do
Of people to see
Of worlds to conquer
And so on too

My revery is shattered
By a softly spoken voice
I turn and gaze to see my love
Awake by her own choice

I rise and pour her a cup
Of caffeinated warmth
And give her a kiss
Smiling with joy
marvelling at my luck

For she is my sun and moon
My bane and my muse
With her by my side
I cannot lose

With things to do
People to see
Worlds to conquer
With her by my side
I shall possess the Grail
With her by my side
I cannot fail

JS 2015

Dedicated to my lovely wife Pat for which all else is secondary.
Love ya hon!

"Life of Riley"

There's been a thousand bluesmen
more or less
since he was born
But a more talented
and beloved man
Well of that
I'm not so sure
The life of Riley
is no more

He could passionately emote
More pain and more soul
from a single note
Than the next players
10 score
The life of Riley
is no more

Criss cross the nation
night after endless night
Naming his treasured axe
After some lass
in a fiery bar fight
From down in N'Orleans
Up to Erie shore
The life of Riley
is no more

A disheveled
Eric Clapton
Gave him a eulogy
this morn
All the world is
a sadder place
The life of Riley
is no more

Down here in Miss
we've birthed theKing
Of Rock and Roll
And the King of blues
for sure
Now there's no more Kings
to dance to and praise
The life of Riley
is no more

JS May 15, 2015

A heartfelt goodbye to Riley B. (Beale ST. Blues Boy) King who passed away last night peacefully in his sleep. He gave us greater than 50 years of great music and remained a nice generous and pleasant person his whole career. I have never heard an unkind word about BB and even though I never met the man I feel as though I've lost a trusted friend. The video this am of Eric Clapton saying his goodbye looking incredibly sad and disheveled was the first thing I saw anything about BB's passing and it truly made me feel as if the man was in pain. Godspeed BB, the world is a lesser place without you, we will never forget!

"No mice and old men"

So you want to be a writer?
I heard the old man say
As he stocked back the books
in the dewey decimal way

Let me tell you son
there's a lot of stories in these pages
Tales of sorrows and of fun
Words of fools and of sages

As an old man
let me give you some advise
Don't listen to no critics
Always write from your heart
That's where the stories live
That's where you should start
Go on now
Go give it a try
If you think your a writer
then don't think about it twice

So I left the old man
not knowing quite what to say
I shuffled out the door
and went on my way

And as I was walking
A statue caught my eye
So I went to look closer
not knowing quite sure why
And there by god
was a statue of the man
Right down to the jacket
to the look on his face
There he was just plain as day
Dumbfounded and aloud
I read out his name
John Steinbeck it said
And no I'm not insane

JS 2015

Dedicated to those that write lyrics, poems, stories, novels and novellas of folk most heinous to folks like Cinderella. Your countless imaginative contributions to literature have fueled my imagination throughout my lifetime and continue still. Sammi Soutar​ and Sean Costello​ can relate and thanks for what you two do. And Gale Thompson​ for inspiring me daily to follow my spirit!

"Robert's not dead yet"


Turn the quiet parts up loud enough to hear 'em.
Leave the loud parts up so the neighbors will hear too.
Turn the volume up so's to raise the dead
So old Robert will hear you

See old Robert's not quite dead yet
he's still skulkin' in them back woods
Behind that boarded up juke joint
carryin' that guitar like he should

See ole Legba won't let him rest at all
we're still pickin and playin' his blues
With hellhounds gainin' on our trails
and holes in both our shoes

Yeah down here in Mississippi
Old Robert he wanders still
His spirit, well it ain't dead yet
and I guess it never will
