It’s So Heavy

(apologies to The Eagles, again)

I’m walkin’ down the road,
Tryin’ to carry my load.
I got seven lenses on my back.
Four are telephoto,
Two are for my GoPro,
One is for my Hasselblad.

It’s so heavy!
It’s so heavy!
Don’t let the sound of your back crackin’ make you lazy!
Wish I listened to my old man,
Should’ve hired a moving van!
Once it’s down, gotta lift it up, and it’s so heavy!

I’m walkin’ down this path,
Tryin’ to figure the math
For why I need to carry all this gear.
Thirty pounds of hardware,
Thousand bucks of software,
And yet I got my phone right here!

Come on, tell me
Why you sell me
Another 50 mil when I got plenty?
The view’s superb, I’ll take a shot…
On the other hand, maybe not.
Don’t wanna bust a gut, ‘cause it’s so heavy!

I got a hunch-back for my pain,
They even gave me a name:
They call me Camera Camel all the time!
Still got my telephoto,
I look like Quasimodo!
Thought of leavin’ it all behind!

It’s so heavy!
It’s so heavy!
Maybe I should take up banjo like my granny!
I might be lazy,
But I ain’t crazy.
It takes a whole new kind of pics, plus it ain’t heavy!

Oh, it ain’t heavy…

Order and Chaos

It is but a shadow, just a fleeting thing.
That is the nature of the order that we bring.
Every day we fight the chaos creeping through
To disrupt the fragile structures that we cling dearly to.
The universe conspires to undo all our work,
And left to its own devices, our world would go berserk.
Not all change is bad, upheaval can be our friend,
But sometimes it seems easier to stop and start again.

Year of the Rooster

When a Rooster meets a Hen,
The Ball of Life rolls round again.
And so it is with this New Year,
One which seems so full of fear.
Where one is full of hate and spite,
A million rise for what is right.
Just focus on what you enjoy!
From Vietnam, chuc mung nam moi!

Numb Skulls

Hey, Pierre, you know what I like?
I like to terrify every tike!
It's my favourite part of Halloween,
And I'm the scariest they've ever seen!

Well, Claude, it's not what they see.
It's your terrible smell that makes them flee!
And I must agree that your odour is bad.
Even the dead say it's worse than your dad!

Oh Pierre, you offend me too much!
If I had limbs, I'd beat you and such!
For that, you can't have any more sweets!
Besides, see what they've done to your teeth?

Claude, my friend, I know you too well.
I once had a nose, but it ran from your smell.
But don't you dare deride my decay.
I'll have you know I like it this way!

It's not my fault, Pierre, that I stink.
My body decayed a bit less than you think.
But it's time to stop talking about my poor spleen,
And wish everyone out there a safe Halloween!

Life. Giving.

If each drop of water, microscopically,
Teams with life, then, philosophically,
Surely we shouldn't, metabolically,
Consume them in great quantity.
What kind of evil monstrosity
Drinks up an entire community
Of beings who could, potentially,
Become great allies of humanity?

Stuck in the Mud

If I were a shoe that was stuck in the mud
Down in a river in a deep dark cave
I'd probably wish through all of that crud
That my twin would come and eventually save
But unless a torrent drives through a flood
Alone with the fishes I would have to be brave
And the water clearly is thicker than blood
And freedom from slime I think I would crave
But I'm not a shoe so this poem's a dud
And I'm not destined for a watery grave
But it makes me relish the morning bud
And the sacrifices that some people gave
