Masters of Deception! (Politicians) L. Don Oliver

Oh! such fools, we modern receivers; Who bask in lies, of the deceivers;

Saying it is, when it isn't so; Off to the bank, they will go;

It's not their money, deceivers care not; As long as it isn't their personal lot;

Football or basketball, which should we choose; Or will we be sated, with dope and booze;

Persistence! By L. Don Oliver

When I was eight years old, As chubby as I could be; Tommy sent word he wanted To meet under the pecan tree;

The sun was shining brightly, It was a very warm day; I discovered very soon, Tommy was not there to play;

He wanted to fight, And I didn't know why; He swung and missed, And I made him cry;

Happening on several occasions, The outcome was the same; He would start the fracas, And I would end the game;

The last time we met, I didn't have my grip; Tommy swung and hit me, Splitting my upper lip;

It wasn't out of anger, It wasn't just to fight; Tommy kept on trying, Until he got it right;

Holding On! By L. Don Oliver

I came upon a new mown field, And heard the black birds sigh; Tiring of their fruitless search, Away they began to fly;

I walked thru a valley of flowers, Who's buds refused to bloom; All wilting in the same direction, Waiting for their coming doom;

I strolled the desert's heat, And felt the scorching pain; Then came the darkened clouds, With their life refreshing rain;

Holding on to that I believe, Destiny is not mine to propose; Concerned not about that to come, After pausing to smell the rose;

Train! By L. Don Oliver

Inequality! By L. Don Oliver

Oh! prosperous child, Where goes thou? Thou did not want, Thou did not need, Heredity made it so;

The Lantern's Glow By. L. Donald Oliver

Comes a light through the forest, Preying nocturnal creatures there; The eerie shadows are dancing, But she doesn't seem to care;

In the city of the vaulted, Where specter and goblin roam; A place that one someday, 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, Many dreams have gone; And through all the years, He was her only one;

She treasures all the moments, Together they held fast; Alas, life is so fleeting, Pleasured moments never last;

Silent words are spoken, Unto her cherished one; Soon she will join him, When her task is done;

The snow gathers around her, But deep in her heart she knows; Nothing seems to fray her, As the cold wind blows;

The winds begin to dwindle, The snow turns to frozen rain; The only truth that sustains her, That she will be with him again;

Cavern of Loneliness! By L. Don Oliver

In the grotto of my being, where I allow none to enter; For if I was ever to do so, then I wouldn't be the center;

Hearing the ghosts of life, and the song that they sing; Caring not about the morrow, or for what it will bring;

Lost in the echoing silence, in the world of my charade; Quick to always blame others, for the mistakes that I've made;

In a cavern of loneliness, where so many choose to dwell, One small step from reality, and one giant step to hell;

The Little Cloud! By L. Don Oliver

There once was a little cloud, Drifting gently through the sky; Along came the angry wind, And tried to make it cry;

The wind blew and blew, But it was all in vain; No matter how it tried, The little cloud refused to rain;

It drifted above the mountains, There it lingered for a while; It cross the flowering plains, Where it began to smile;

It drifted with the ocean breeze, As it traveled upon it's way; Over islands colored in green, And where the dolphins play;

Then came a raging storm, And gave the little cloud a twirl; Soon it returned to it's course, On it's journey around the world;

Silence of the Deep! By L. Don Oliver

A gentle refreshing sea breeze, Waves splashing upon the shore; Seabirds soaring above me; A beautiful new world to explore;

In the shadows of my soul, The world above me asleep; Slipping slowly beneath the waves, Into the silence of the deep;

Serenity of quite solitude, Rainbow creatures swimming by; Lovely flowering coral reefs, One is thankful to be alive;

Where there's rhyme and reason, No imperative schedule to keep; Controlling my own destiny, In the silence of the deep;

Bubbles from a fissure below, Up through the darkened steep; At peace with the world, In the silence of the deep;

When life has passed me by, Broken dreams never to mend; Things that I once enjoyed, Ever winding down to end;

If to die upon the morrow, With a promise to ever sleep; I pray thee my final rest, In the silence of the deep;

Swampyville Moral Rhymes;

The following poem is based on The Ten Commandments. The best moral guide ever. It is intended as an addition to the Ten Commandments and not as a replacement. I worded it so as not to offend anyone. With the continous argument between Church and State (The Word "God"), this nation's morals are being destroyed. Faith is between an individual and their God and can never be a collective belief!

THE BEST WAY TO DESTROY A MORAL SOCIETY IS TO DESTROY THAT SOCIETY'S MORALS!

The Ten Morals: By L. Don Oliver

It is morally right to have, Faith for what you believe; It is morally wrong to worship, What others contrive to deceive;

It is morally wrong to assail others, Even the words we speak; It is morally right to rest, On one day of each week;

It is morally right to honor parents, Even if there should be strife; It is morally wrong and illegal, To take another person's life;

It is morally right to be honest, To the one you're committed to; It s morally wrong and illegal to take, That which doesn't belong to you;

It is morally wrong to utter untruths, For many it can lead to distress; It is morally wrong to be jealous, Of what others may possess;

I've aways lived by the "Golden Moral", Of everything that I perceive To always do for others, What I wish them to do for me;
