Poetry Corner


Another person who has taken poetry to heart is Ivory Mosely who has graciously given us some of his own work as well to display. Please give him a round of applause.

As Seen On TV
The socially inept guy always get the girl

and lives happily ever after in dream land

a family’s crisis and unique problem

is solved in a 1/2 hour span

100 years of slavery shown in detail

in a weeks time of one hour blocks

from the early liberation to jim crow and all its hard knocks

The beautiful young girl who wants to be a singer

and gets a recording contract and fame in one tv season

“She has it!” is what the judges say is the reason

The most attractive police persons in the world

solve the dirtiest and complex crimes

without hair falling out of place and in record time

A couple of good ol’ boys with a hot car and not so hot top

Keeps the family honor by speeding on dirt roads on the other side of mason-dixon

but always get away because of the stupid sheriff and help of a unidentified vixen

Too bad real life isn’t always this fun

but then again it would be real for me

better left that this is “as seen on tv”

VOYAGE
A JOURNEY I’M ABOUT TO BEGIN

A DESIRE OF TRAVEL FROM WITHIN

TO THE UNKNOWN AND EVEN FURTHER AWAY

NO TIME TO PACK, I’M LEAVING TODAY

I’LL STOP IN IBERIA, THE KINGDOM UNITED AND

THE GREAT AFRICA TO START

SWITZERLAND AND THEN BELGIUM,”I HEARD THEY HAVE GOOD TARTS”

WHERE EVER I LAND, I WILL EXPLORE

TO THE TAJ MAHAL AND THE VATICAN FLOOR

IN RAINFORESTS NEVER TOUCHED MY MODERN HANDS

STAYING WITH A TRIBE, LIVING NEAR THE SAND

IMAGINE IF YOU WILL, THE FREEDOM TO GO ANYWHERE, TO DO ANYTHING

TO GO TO PARIS FOR THE “LIGHTS”, OR TO VIENNA TO HEAR THE BOYS SING

DANCE THE FLAMENCO DOWN THE STREETS OF MADRID

OR PLAY BASEBALL WITH A JAPANESE KID

TO THE RUINS OF THE GREEK GODS

WALKING DOWN THE BEACHES OF RIO, TO SEE THE “NICE BODS”

SEEING A KANGAROO HOP BY YOUR SIDE

GETTING ON THE AUTOBAHN JUST FOR THE RIDE

MANY PLACES FOR ME TO SEE AND TO MAKE NEW FRIENDS

BUT THE BEST PART OF THE VOYAGE IS WHERE IT BEGINS AND WHERE IT ENDS…HOME

Sweet Tea Serenade
Come on with me and have some sweet tea

Brewed with love and hot water that was free

The tea leaves are the finest around

From the land where the Taj Mahal is found

Added some sugar, to make it sweet

not too much so its a delicious treat

I’ll stir it and pour it fast

and i’ll give you the first glass

We’ll snuggle on the swing on the front steps

where my grandparents sat and enjoyed the breeze

that blew gently through the trees

The swing slightly creaks, announcing each move

we’re both in a relaxin’ and easy southern groove

Sip after sip, sweet tea is pure bliss

and i’ll glady give you another glass for a sweet tea kiss
