Diplomatic Dancing


I danced with an Alien
At the Diplomat´s Summer Ball
Though I´m not sure Dancing
Correctly described it at all.
A dancing partner with six feet
And thirty six naked toes?
Trying to be graceful while avoiding
Kicking or stepping on any of those.

I´m not quite sure I appreciated
The appeal or the charm
Of dancing with a creature with
Tentacles instead of arms.
I was so grateful when
It mumbled its thanks
Then wandered off to recharge
The gas in its breathing tanks.

Another one was waiting
To step up in its place
And I had to accept
With a show of grace.
We mooched around in silence,
We shambled round and round,
As out Universal Translators
Had both totally broken down.

They say silence is golden
But it doesn´t help pass time
When your dancing partner
Exudes a green sweaty slime.
The next time I´ll throw a sickie
If I´m given the chance
Rather than be on duty at
The Aliens Diplomatic Dance.

Long long Memory


I must confess I have no love or affinity for the self professed elite class of ameriKKKan so*called Xristian gentility.

I have a very long long memory Into infinity and their ancestors nor predecesors get any respect or love from me.

My people victimized by vile, corrupt and brutal wholesale villainy. My disdain for their wicked actions is easily plain to see.

I stand not for their flag by which I have been denied liberty. Subjected to day to day moral degredation and repeated social humiliation.

Stripping language, ripping out mother tongues. Native names dashed and cultural obliteration. Forced to deny God and accept your trinity.

You are such a vicious enemy.
Genocide of the Indigenous people and enslavement
of my kind.

Utilized, racialized naturalization has always been the foundation of this white supremacist ameriKKKan nation.

A nation that simultaneously lost its soul back when it initially lost its mind. Claiming that all white land owners are equal and endowed by their Creator with certain inalienable rights.

To perpetrate genocide, enslave and fight against all of the rest of man. A usurper of rights. Truth deniers, international Gangsters and territorial colonizers.

I have a very long long memory Into infinity and their ancestors nor predecesors get any respect or love from me.

Until they make financial compensation and full reparations. Then perhaps all can live in peace and harmony.

HUMAN BEINGS


~HUMAN BEINGS~

We, humans, are born poets.
We just love to see things
that are not there and things
that are there we see in
forms so illogical and false.

We think the flowers are
meant for us to please us.
Flowers help the plant
attracting birds and bees
to pollinate and reproduce
the plant in other places.

We look at nature and
see it so serene and calm,
so perfect that we might
associate love, harmony
and peace with that but
the truth is far from that.

Imagine the tranquillity of
Alaska and the ice*covered
land, so cool and a beauty
but the killing of Penguin by
the seal is bloody and not
so tranquil or peaceful.

The killing of seals by Orca
the killer whale just goes to
show that nature is anything
but calm and tranquil and
the food chain is nothing but
killing and eating of prey.

Looking at the burning hot
ball of fire we are inspired
even to worship it as if it
had some divine power to
grant a passage to heaven
where ever it might exist.

We human beings are so
good at such silly games
and we even kill in the
name of those silly games
saying how right we are
and they are totally wrong.

Eternal Weight of Glory


So we will never lose heart,
Though we are wasting away;
His Word that we impart,
Being renewed day by day.

This fugitive affliction,
Prepares a weighted glory;
Beyond all comparison,
In knowing the true story.

As we look not to the things
That is physically seen;
Faith shines a light as it brings,
Of the things that are unseen.

Things we see are temporal,
For they are just transient;
Unseen things are eternal,
To the faith as radiant.

buddybeeanthony

when everything you believe in now looks wrong.


When everything you've ever believed in
now looks mismtatched and wrong.
I have no other reasonable option
than to be wrong enough
to one time,
get it right.
Doctor, doctor, your pills make my legs weak.
These green's to help losing weight just makes me tweak.
Hank Williams fell out of a Cadillac Coupe De Ville
He ended up on alcohol and pills
Alcohol, hard drugs raw or in a pill.
It's a real cryin shame.
You think they might've been happy
with the glory and the fame.
But, fame doesn't take away the pain.
it just pays the bills.
And you wind up on alcohol,, meth, a little coke and pills.
then you'll wind down on
hash ether, Secanol and Mescaline bulbs
Then you wind up on coke, speedballs and other thrills.
then, you wind down again on pot, heroine, and
cold pills for your chills
And we all wind up on alcohol , methedrine, speedballs,
and aspirin for
all of the sweating,, swelling, and chills.
and they wind up on shrooms cocaine and pills.
Then, they wind down on ether, grass, and a vial of recovery pills.
and you wind up on alcohol, dope, and all sorts of other happy sad pills.
Janis Joplin
she was wild and reckless.
Then, there was Gram Parson's Lord
then there was Jimmy Hendrix.
The story just goes on and on
and I guess, it always will.
They ended up on alcohol and pills,
Sometimes,somebody
just doesn't walke up
the next day.
Sometimes, it's called a heart attack.
Sometimes, the doctors don't say.
They pulled old Hank Williams
outta a Cadillac Coup De Ville.
He ended up on alcohol,, ether, heroine, and diet pills.
Alcohol, ether, heroine pot,, potions and pills.
It's just a cryin' shame.
You think they might've been happy
with the glory and the fame.
But, fame doesn't take away all the pain.
It pretty much just pays the bills.
and you wind up on alcohol, methadrine cocaine,
shrooms too are skittles.
and we wind up on alcohol and other swill.
Elvis Pressley
He came up from Jackson.
With brand new way of singin' lord
and a brand new way ah dancin'
and even from the waist up
he gave this old world a
rockin' thrill.
He wound up on alcohol and pills. uh huh.
that's right.
and you wind up on alcohol heroine, coke meth and /or pills
and they wind up on alcohol and pills.

A collaboration, magnum opus produc
The no count nebbish, wanting sinply to advance the depth of promising raw musical material This is worthy topic to sing about. Drug experimentation of which I was cautious, believe it or don't and didn't include drugs like quaaludes, or curare, heavy barbituates or psychodelics.
a pretty collaborative medl
adaptation from 'Alcohol and Pills My aim being about the music,, you can't help but see, my interpretive borrowing and tweaking creates a new melody just as pure and true.
A version that combines near perfection with the hammer coming down at the precise moment that gave the piece the most prestige, and high degree of expertise.
I do everhthing the wrong way,and If i do it wrong enough
Then,maybe this time.
yes maybe this time.
Maybe just one damn glorious time.
I could get it right with you

Buddy Bee Anthony
always evolving entertainer, musically and through vivid story telling,.
I sneak up, stealthy, creeping behind you while you are sedated, and with the power of music I give you a startling wake up smack in the back of your head.
all night.

Though The Prevailing Winds May Not Be Fair 2/5/2023



not all of us are so lucky

if that's how luck might be described

if its good fortune

or the results of the practice

of good listening

and being kind

I don't expect so much from anyone

anymore

there is no like for kind

its true that others do give up on you

for self*preservation is

the greater commandment

leaving kindness and all the others

far far behind

so be the person you will be

be the person you are

be the person you feel you can be

and don't measure yourself

by how many gold stars

someone might supply

experience is the teacher

who will inform you

it might be good to be kind

but there are those who in spite

of your better intentions and attentions

who will still leave you very far behind

so learn to heal yourself

in the balm

of self*encouraging words

and when you remember to do it

write it down in a poem

and date it

so with time

it may sink in

that you'll always have yourself

though the winds may not be fair.
