Big Lift Ferry Poem F143a and F143b

Big Lift Ferry Poem 143a

If my open mind –
Or my free spirit scares you
From working with me –
Then I have no desire
To underachieve with you

Big Lift Ferry Poem 143b

If you can’t see my
Open mind and free spirit
As strengths to value –
Then I have no desire
To underachieve with you

Putting a cap on
Where my spirit roams only
Pushes it further 
In more forms and directions 
To the same destination

Got Something to Say [version 5.0]

Ask me about the weather,
Ask me what I think’s taboo,
Ask me if I would wear leather,
Or who I pray to?

Ask me any question, any day,
Ask me cause you know I’ve always,
Got something to say!

Ask me what I think of friendship,
Ask me how I feel about love,
Ask me my two cents on money,
And on happiness.

Ask me any question, any day,
Ask me cause you know I’ve always,
Got something to say!

Ask me about jogging, clear cut logging,
Autobahns and black swans,
Michael Jordan, Bob Dylan,
Islam, Viet Nam,
H-bombs and my Mom.

Yeah ask me any question, any day,
Ask me cause you know I’ve always,
Got something to say!

Ask me what I think of people,
Who’s always got something to say,
But who never ask other people,
For what they’ve got to say.

Cause having an opinion, without discussion,
Thinking one is right, day and night,
Is a plan for, fights and war,
Hot heads, bloodshed,
Lost heads and tears shed.

If we discuss our problems, I know we,
Can mutually find the answers that would be,
Good for you and me!

So tell me where you stand on abortion,
Would you help me if I wished to die?
Would you allow human cloning?
Or take a killer’s life?

Tell me your opinions, so that we,
Can mutually find the answers that would be,
Good for you and me.

Let’s find ways to solve global warming,
Let’s find ways to get world peace,
Let’s find ways to end world hunger,
And inequality.

Let’s discuss things over, so that we,
Can mutually find the answers that would be,
Good for you and me…
And the world we lease…
And all humanity.
