Mission Accomplie!

4 Jan

This 8-part Triple Rhyme Poem was inspired by George Lucas’s blockbuster film, Star Wars.

Read between the lines and perhaps you can relate this to a situation your life or one that you may be aware of.

“Mission Accomplie!”

Gold Leader, this is Dragon Slayer, do you copy? Over.

Victory is sweet like a box of candies from Russell Stover,

And more cherished than my loyal Labrador Retriever named Rover.

I ran my sortie as commanded and I hit the bullseye.

When I saw my missiles hit the target I let out a deep sigh.

I was overtaken with joy and I began to cry.

So long has this evil empire oppressed us and killed our heroes.

We sat and watched in terror while our allies fell one by one like dominoes.

Now it is time for The Big Payback because that how Karma goes.

Burn Baby Burn like a Disco Inferno for your blood lust.

No one is going to miss your tyrannical reign so ashes to ashes and dust to dust.

Your villainy broke the covenant you had with your subjects which is a sacred trust.

Working together while feeling the fear and doing it anyway we toppled this savage beast.

They deserve the worst of everything but they will have to Ante Up now at least.

They were looking westward but our squadron swooped in on them from the east.

You let me have the honor of taking the kill shot and I am grateful.

The things this despotic regime did to me and my family was so hateful.

Revenge is a dish best served cold so I served up a plateful.

Gold Leader, we lost a lot of pilots and ships on this run but it was not for naught.

I’m proud of my brothers and sisters-in-arms because to the very last they fought.

They understood that freedom isn’t free and blood, sweat and tears is the currency in which in must be bought.

Our determination made it happen because there is no “I” in the word “We.”

Pardon my French but I blew them to f*cking bits! Use your long range scanners to see.

Oh damn. Going back to my French I’ll just say, “Mission accomplie!”

So, How Does It Feel?

7 Sep

This is a 10-part Triple Rhyme Poem that talks about karma. According to Dictionary.com, karma is “the principle of retributive justice determining a person’s state of life and the state of his reincarnations as the effect of her/his past deeds.”

You do reap what you sow. Good and bad. I’ve been blessed with good fortune at unexpected and oftentimes moments when I was on the brink of despair. I’ve also done my share of dirt and have been on the receiving end of this boomerang myself and let me tell you, it was not a pleasant experience.

Song, book, and movie titles are hyper-linked to their respective audio, summary, or video pages on GrooveShark.com, Amazon.com, IMDB.com, or YouTube.com.

I want you to have a full multimedia experience during your visit here on my blog.

After you pulled your mess I thought about you on Two Occasions; day and night.

Mama Said Knock You Out and I’m mentally and physically built for war and ready to fight.

It is most definitely time for the Payback because what you did was wrong and it is going to be made right.

Don Corleone from The Godfather said, “Revenge is a dish best served cold.”

My initial impulse was to go Boogie Down and make you Ante Up truth be told.

Justice is sweeter than revenge and platinum is more valuable than gold.

I stepped away from vengeful thinking because I have a different Method, Man.

Work hard, be fair in your dealings, and be open to learning new things should always be part of your daily plan.

Sometimes bad things happen to good people and sometimes folks fly off the handle – just ask Eminem about that dude Stan.

Exhale the anger because it consumes you and keeps you from thinking straight.

Like Colin Powell said, “Get mad, get over it, then get going” is What Makes the Great Great.

Rage makes you less than the divine being you could be so make a choice not to hate.

Sometimes there will be anxiety but when you Get Up Stand Up for what’s right be Not Afraid.

The Force, Great Spirit, Mother Nature, or whatever you want to call it makes sure that no debts go unpaid.

Righteousness is a solid rock and lies and hypocrisy dry-up and fade.

Who Do You Love and Could You Be Loved and will you do what is the right thing to do?

It is so much easier to tell the truth because when one gets caught in their lies it is sickening like having a bad case of the Spanish Flu.

It begins to feel like your insides are on fire and beginning to stew.

It didn’t have to be this way but you wanted to be a bully even though you already had the high-ground.

You constantly needed your ego stroked and needed reassurances that you were the alpha and the king of the mound.

Now my Cosmic Mama will teach you a lesson that will break you down to the very last compound.

You thought me too injured and distraught to fight back against your attacks.

You may have even thought me to be dead and stinking but the heat you brought reshaped me like molded wax.

An indomitable soul is like Bébé’s Kids because it doesn’t die, it multiplies and those are the facts.

Now look at yourself being in a world of hurt and nowhere to run and hide.

I actually pity you because now your falling because you had a cocky pride.

Standing there with your mouth and eyes opened wide.

I bet you can’t really Breathe because you’re shocked and things seem so surreal.

Karma goes 360 degrees and What Goes Around comes back around full circle like reel to reel.

So, How Does It Feel?
