The Arc Of Life

Travelling through life resembles an arc We start out as a child emerging from the dark To reach a crescendo Establishing a tempo Then sadly we all must eventually disembark © Jack Ellison 2015

Mischievous Minions--A Limerick Suite


			The series "Despicable Me," 
			we've flocked to theaters to see.
			Wee minions--cute creatures--
			and bad guys each features.
			To all we respond with great glee.

			I never dreamed five years ago
			that I would soon dash to and fro
			in search of these minions--
			in children's opinions,
			all treasuresHow well I now know!

			Some kids possess minions galore:
			the one-eyed, the two-eyed, and more.
			They giggle and jabber;
			"BANANA," some blabber.
			Their odd appeal, who could ignore?

			My grandson's like other young boys.
			For Christmas he craved minion toys.
			His loved ones went shopping
			for hours, not stopping
			till we found gifts he now enjoys.
			The minion-themed presents I gave
			were puzzles, a cool talking Dave,
			a pillow with three guys
			with one or two huge eyes.
			For these he did hug me and rave.

	`		I'm glad to say just one thing more:
			Fart Blaster, I left at the store!
			The child would have driven 
			me nuts if I'd given
			him that thing; but Dave, I adore.

Exposed With Two Lenses

I was a child of only seven years,
adventurous, bold, I had no fears.
Into the woods I would go
after my Mom told me "No."
But worth the spanking and the tears.

These days the woods are worrisome,
fear I may trip and land on my bum.
Things live there I didn't see
when I was young and carefree.
With age, it's to caution I have succumb.

Borderline Poster Child

Who am I, oh, who am I? Just a poser child Borderline? A series of bold contradictions Led on by doctors false predictions Diagnosing all the time... Angry outbursts fill the air, Throwing objects everywhere, They drug me up, because they're lazy It's too much work to help the crazy I hate the pills, but they don't care Take the drugs, and you'll feel better, We'll smoke some bud, and chill together But even if I smoked the weed Surely that's not all I need The lovely high won't last forever I get attatached to everyone, But when they get too close, I run So many arrows in my heart Cupid shoots, but then I part Not phased by all the wrong I've done So put me on more medication, I'll throw in some dedication, But even then it's not enough This emptiness is still too tough All that's left is contemplation

Harvey the Hippo

Harvey the Hippo

Harvey is a huge hippopotamus
Who bathes in a bay that is bottomless
HIs mouth is as large as a riverboat barge
And he weighs ten times more than a lot of us

Big Harvey isn’t nasty or troublesome
Nor like other guys who are double dumb
He just wanders around stomping the ground
Looking for pieces of bubble gum

Harvey owns a fine yellow cummerbund
And sewn on the back is the number one
He wears it right proudly and bellows quite loudly
While playing outside in the summer sun

Once Harvey met up with a crocodile
Together they decided to walk a mile
Near the shore they strolled, but the water got cold
So they sat down to talk on the dock a while

Eating Oreo cookies about four apiece
They talked about matters of war and peace
They discussed the economy, art, and astronomy
And the huge immigration of foreign geese

Then walking back toward his new shiny house
Harvey stopped for a chat with a tiny mouse
Her name was Du Barry; they decided to marry
And soon come a baby named Stanislaus

A handsome young child was Stanislaus
Dressed up in his fine silken Spanish blouse
They all had made history; this was no mystery
For Stan was the first Hippopotamouse

Huge Harvey adored his sweet ladylove
From her wee little feet to her head above
He brought her some strings and other fine things
Including a snowy white turtledove

Harvey has grown really mellow now
He seldom produces a bellow now
But if you’re down by the bay, you can still see him play
This wondrous and gentle old fellow now

First of May

"First of May"

When I was a child I ran away
To live with the circus in Bombay,
Where all things were new
And possible, too!
So, for this they called me "First of May"!

I started out selling concessions:
Hot! Popcorn! Hot! Peanuts! Confections!
But in my spare time,
I'd secretly climb
Into the Great Cannon--for missions!

My costume and cape were blue and grey,
Spark'ling like stars with each flight--Away!
By day selling fare--
Nights--Fly Through The Air!
Dreams do come true when you're "First of May"!*

deborah burch©

*Note: "First of May" is a circus term used to describe 'newbies' who come to the means that everything is new,exciting, fresh, and anything/everything is possible! :)

A Remorseless Battle

The Poem is dedicated to nine innocents who has lost their lives in Israli attak on their 
humanitarian aid

Docility, a living destitute of Anthropomorphism.
Recency, appalling of desperation or piteous anomalism.
Recommendations apotheosize a fussiness of hell or heaven,  
A gun shooter killed innocents a crackable Raven
To shot a child or an old person hard lines limicolous
Inconsecutive lewdness a peevish peeping Tom Ligneous.
Reprehensible polygamist direful coiled chaotic prattle,
A salacious salubrity paramour remorseless battle

Double Disappointment

I woke up in rapture, when she started to sing.
Naughty whispers in my ears, “Someone’s coming”
My ecstatic view;
A child is due!
Then she continues, “My mother’s visiting”

As a child it was fun and quite daring
To ogle what the other was carrying
We hid in the loft
Where we played quite oft
To inspect what the other was baring

Some thoughts come in code

When unsurpassed greed's uncontrolled
King Midas' story be told!
The steps to his stash
Cast his daughter for cash
She's an allegory of gold

Author's note: I had a vivid dream a few nights ago Part of it included a feeling that I needed to check my personal stash of valuables I thought the items were locked in the basement However, when I came to the door to the staircase leading down expecting it to be locked, it was ajar I opened it all the way, and there was a child coming up the steps We looked at each other, and the child tumbled down the stairs and appeared dead It was a terrible feeling The poem above is one interpretation of what I might have been trying to tell myself There are other interpretations as well However, I am left with the idea that our society's focus on the material is destroying our love for each other and our families This is a huge problem for me and has taken a lot of my thought time over the past few days Meanwhile, I tell myself to enjoy each day, and I try.

Critter Tale

 A slim handsome ogre named Vampire,
married into a fairytale empire.
His elfin wife named Hairy
bore him a sharp toothed fairy,
That looked like a Hobbit from the shire.

Much to the elves’ and Ogres’ chagrin,
they bore an impish child again.
This time being on a roll,
they bore an impish troll,
and now all the fantasy creatures are kin!

(inspired by Debbie Guzzi's contest)

They have poor Little Boy Blue tending sheep
That's why he got tired and fell asleep,
Other kids on the court
Shooting hoops playing sport,
He's scared of his dad and won't say a peep.

Well the cows went and eat up all the corn
And they want poor Boy Blue to blow his horn,
Why 'twas not a drum set
Or guitar, better yet,
The cows and the sheep to him would be drawn.

Didn't his parents know the Child Labor Laws
Or somebody forgot to read that clause
Protective Services
Should be called into this,
They should hire workers to meet that cause.

Two in Sea Time

For the  child in us all.

Sea, sea can't catch me,
All the waves that I can see,
Would like to carry me away
Swallow my blue-eyed day
Swell up and float away wee, me.

That I respect my blowsy ocean
You cannot be a sea without motion,
Nor I a child without fear of your tides,
But oh they so give such fabulous rides,
When from you I teasingly run.

Ma Dropping It Like Its Hot (Limerick)

MsPotter caught her daughter Lollipop
There dancing in the grocer’s parking lot
And scolded her profusely
‘Til someone cranked up “Juicy”…
MsPotter stopped and dropped it like it’s hot

How soon some forget that they were once young tooIf the power of dance is ones 
passion it is not the worst vice a child can have, in fact it is good exercise One

Well I pulled out some Mother Goose rhymes
'Cause I read to my Great-Grand sometimes,
And the rhymes that I read
They were so very dread
Nowadays they'd be considered crimes.

That Old Lady who lived in a shoe
Why didn't somebody tell her "don't screw"
With a whole bunch of kids
And living on the skids,
Then abusing the children, who knew?

Not a Baby Daddy was in port
Did the Cops get them for child support,
What 'bout the welfare check?
No food stamps? what the heck!
Did she trade it for something to snort?

Me and Santa

Age 5
As a child I awoke from my slumber
I arose from the couch to grab a cucumber
   Santa was eating my cookies.
   Like a baseball rookie.
I threw the cucumber and Santa fell like lumber!

Age 6
Santa returned the following year.
No presents for me was my biggest fear.
   I hid behind the couch.
   I heard Santa say "ouch."
He slipped on my marbles and fell on his rear!

Age 7
The following Christmas was a surprise to me.
I fell asleep curled up under the tree
   Santa woke me with a smile
   He said, "It's been awhile."
Then dumped Rudolph's dung on me!

Feeding The Ducklings

                 Feeding The Ducklings

      While picking up my little daughter from school
       We were to follow the path passing a pool,
             only to watch ducks and ducklings
             swimming, playing, gaily giggling.
      Blowing breeze over water was soothing and cool.

     My child was to throw bread-piece from pocket
        or to hit tiny fruits with her racket 
        to drop those and float on water surface.
      Flock of ducklings swam on rapid race
   to swallow floating fruits on prompt attempt.

     On her primary school days that was a routine.
      Feeding of ducklings was funny and fine.
         Merry ducklings always follow duck
         Amusing cheerful calls ‘Quack-Quack’.
      A sweet remembrance of my child and mine.

Why didn't they kill me

‘Scars have the strange power to remind us that our past is real.’-Cormac McCarthy

Why didn't they kill me..
why am i still here...?
Being successful is my goal...
being flat broke, 
my biggest fear 

The pain is far to great to hide, laying awake and wide eyed
contemplating suicide,
what is my purpose? 
and if i stay alive, would it all be worth it? 
will I make something of myself? 
maybe i should just forfeit 

my one wish is to not have to worry
and to all those I've disappointed
I gave up, and I'm sorry

A strong man is what people think of me 
but deep down inside, a child i aim to be 
because you see, a child, so carefree
doesn't worry about the downsides to the world
only the fun things God lets them see....

please, one day, set me free
take me away from this hurt filled life that I lead, 
I plead and plead for someone to rescue me, 
but when I look in the mirror, what is it that I see? 
a broken down child, crying on both knees

This life gives no mercy, and only the strong survive,
how will my family the event of my demise? 
i pray no one cries for me, because i am in a better place, 
I've rid myself of the bitter pain, sadness and disgrace 

maybe if i get another chance, my demons i will face, 
but for now i walk through the valley of death
a sad, cold, and bitter place
Hoping after this valley 
ill see heavens smiles and grace,
but I fear that my mistakes 
will lead me to the devils face 
so many mistakes I can never erase 
You only get one chance,
so my advice is to seize the day.

I've tried...I've prayed and prayed, but the pain still wont go away
day after day, my life i want to take away...but even that I fail to do
so night after night I'll lay,
in bed awake but dreaming, of the day my pain goes away...

True price of war

The mighty warlord shakes his fist and sends his troops to the abyss
Families broken and torn because of an oath that was sworn
Fathers and sons die in vain but no one can feel their pain
Mothers cry as their children are sent off to die
Innocent blood is shed, does no one care for these dead
Sadness grips the heart of man as many a persons blood stains the land
Cries from the public go unheard as the warlord shouts his mighty words
Kill them all he says, make these people pay
The screams of wounded go on through the night begging for the warlord to end the fight
No answer comes from his high up throne for his heart is cold as stone
Only a child dared to face him
He begged for his people 
His words so moved the warlord he again shook is fist this time calling his troops from
the abyss
Families are pieced back together after the mighty storm they have weathered
The child is proclaimed a hero
Sides that once wared against each other now call themselves brothers
Fields are resown and homes rebuilt, no longer does the warlord feel  guilt
But nothing can replace the loss of life for that is the true price of war

Her mother said no, no way, no animals at this house  this i say;

Unlike Lena Horne;

Or I'm gonna tell my mom the real paparazzi;

Don't mess with me or ya B barefooted and I'll have you shoes around my neck;
And the neck time you see me bully U  B  writing me out a check;

I was shopping in the local mall When a toddler just started to bawl He stamped his tiny feet And demanded a treat But his mum wouldn’t buy a football! He continued to scream and shout His small mouth displayed a huge pout But much to his chagrin His mum did not cave in Just warned him he could get a clout! His dad took the child by the hand And said words he could understand When your mummy says no Don’t put on a floor show - Good parenting really is grand! (Just for the record I'm not advocating it's good parenting to smack a child - it just happened to rhyme for the poem which is fictional) Incidentally in October 2017 Scotland was the first place in the UK to ban parents from smacking their child..I wonder how successful that will be! 12/24/17

And on mind of a child are depending
Don't invite people and be a deterrent
Knowledge of issues is never current

Chauvinistic Pigs and Other Limericks

We men are all chauvinist pigs tra-la-la, 
And love to take girls to our digs tra-la-la
Though girl snorts when she laughs, 
We don't care about gaffes, 
When our hearts find they're all dancing jigs tra-la-la!

I'm a kid who grew up on the farm tra-la-la
And I don't mean to woo or alarm tra-la-la, 
But I'm telling y'all, 
Don't make fun of the drawl, 
Or you're likely to feel more than charm tra-la-la.

There are Sundays you'll find me in church tra-la-la, 
But on weekdays I try to climb birch tra-la-la
I don't care what you say, 
I know Frost went this way, 
And my muse loves the view from his perch tra-la-la.

I heard "anyone lived in a pretty how town," (1) 
But Salvation escaped him, eloped with a clown, 
Death is ever the wage paid for sins, 
But a child at Christ's feet mostly grins, 
Questions asked with no frown; angels bless child's renown!

Can Confide In Jesus

Can Confide In Jesus

We really wondered what was the matter;
Around countryside people would scatter;
Needed a guide,
Who in to confide;
Saw Jesus soon and around did gather.

Said many things while he was speaking;
Our Lord and savior we had been seeking;
After growing;
Flowers flowing;
Of hope, Jesus became a ray and beacon.

Jubilantly heard bells as they rang and rang;
Worshipers all around Jesus sang and sang;
Such a scene,
And so serene;
Under majestic mountain was wild mustang.

With Jesus close by we became enthralled;
Heard angels in sky as they called and called;
Here and there;
Then everywhere;
Were near a city which was proudly walled.

Down before Jesus on our knees did fall;
Some people were small while others tall;
Daughters with sons,
Who God never shuns;
He spoke to child and held her like a doll.

All of you may be precious children of mine;
Are always obedient never getting out of line;
Were with Jesus;
Loved Him to pieces;
Faces were brightly beaming and did shine.

After meeting discovered was over and done,
So happy and contented became everyone;
Jesus had satisfied;
On Him they relied;
He saved us from all sin and left were none.

Sunday Service At Saint James Episcopal

Sunday Service At Saint James Episcopal

These poems are reflections of 
this Church Service.

Willing and Fulfilling

To accept  God I am always willing,
And His Spirit in me He is instilling;
Am drifting;
Is  uplifting;
That I always will find  so fullfilling.

At church we have a great usher;
On women can be a wild crusher;
Great voice;
We  rejoice;
He is known to be a child husher.

Have been impressed with God's balm;
Severe harsh storms  surely can calm;
Glad He is here;
Close and  near;
Son walked on  road covered with palm.

Priests are  all known for  their notoriety;
And they give great sermons in a variety;
We  had a hunch;
Handsome bunch;
Are always clear due to  sincere sobriety.

Priests are known for mumbling and grumbling,
And overcome  obstacles that cause stumbling;
So smooth  viscosity;
Prepared preciposity;
Even great at singing rose which was rumbling.

With my wife was  really impresssed,
Appearing before me and undressed;
Her skin up is clearing;
Redness  disappearing;
Stopped scratching which I stressed.

Trump is really ridiculous old grunge;
Into debt enjoys taking big plunge;
Lacks a level head;
Wish would drop dead;
Stole money when it he did expunge.

Which will bother and make us upset;
Creates hard times;
In butts and chimes;

Should be profile of person put on trial;
Mental and emotional laws is breaking;
Innocent children  advantage of taking.

How could God person like this produce;
To rubble existance of poor child reduce;
Had created commotion that us unnerves;
Breaking rules while around them curves.

Why let him roam through streets at night;
Toss in jail, throw away key, lock up tight;
Add his name to those on prison's long list;
God, no longer with us allow to ever exist.

The Book of Life

Nothing on earth will ever die
Your DNA will show you why
The folks you hold dear
May all reappear
As a child who makes your heart sigh

Started Out Slow

Started Out Slow

Are many ways which a child may go;
Did end up fast after starting out slow;
God is there;
Secrets to share;
Right pace for us God will always know.

Nursing Gone Awry Then Away

A petite, young woman gave birth
to a child of rather great girth.
Infant ate day and night.
‘Twas for her a delight
to milk Mom for all she was worth.

That porker the mother did swaddle.
Her drinking speed, it was full throttle.
Situation’s improved.
Mom from milking’s removed.
Little Dumpling is hitting the bottle!

Christmas indeed is blissfully wondrous
Yet one character makes my child nervous
A Santa granting no gift
As if showing dearth midst thrift
Negating spirit to be generous.

My boy’s Christmas fright can be humorous
Yet his demands for giving is serious
Toward season’s blessed lift
Against “mine alone” rift…
Thank God, He's poured his special needs’ bonus!

On Small Baby or Child Rain Must Fall

On Small Baby or Child Rain Must Fall

So on small baby or child rain must fall,
While others laugh and will have a ball;
Take advantage of,
And never love;
Trump sure seems to have a lot of gall.

Grand father said, " Aye! come here, here bean!" 
Grand child- smiling toothless and peeing 
stretching old wabbles 
crippling child bubbles 
One for another powerless twin!

Soiled and Spoiled

Soiled and Spoiled
(Or Be, Being, Been)

Trump's brain appears to be badly soiled;
Acts like some child who is being spoiled;
With you this share;
Ugly hair will wear;
In hot oil, body should have been boiled.

So we can save all of our sanity,
Remember veterans and their vanity;
Always involved;
Problems resolved;
Trying to protect life and humanity.

At Trusty Trump Take Aim

At Trusty Trump Take Aim

At trusty Trump we must take aim;
Poor upset child has him to blame;
Do cry and cry;
Must know why;
Should stop using in political game.
