Democracy

Long live democracy – best of all alternatives,

Regardless if NDP, Liberals or conservatives,

Out with the old, in with the new (or slightly used),

You are not completely sure, (Canadians are confused),

Yet I am in doubt the choices we have are cream of the crop,

We already know the Liberal choice was a total flop,

Well, come what may, in a month time we cast our votes,

Please use your head this time, enough a herd of goats,

Officially Off Chemo

That’s it; I am officially off chemo,
It was a daring bet, just like a casino,
Fortunately this bet worked against the odds,
Could it be intervention of the almighty gods?
So for the time being I shall stick around,
Although I am lighter by about forty pounds,
And if all works well, here I shall be for a while,
Time to put on a big and wide smile,

I miss reading

The biggest problem in growing old,

Is when your bad eyesight starts unfold,

I used to read a lot, was my favourite hobby,

Better than games and sports (even hockey),

I read a book a day for most of my life (so far),

In two languages (read and write) as most are,

Too bad when reading can be most beneficial,

We settle for radio and TV (very superficial),

Self-Inflicted

Saturday it’s mass shooting at a “Wal-Mart”,

On Wednesday it’s at a mall where lives will depart,

On Sunday “Target” a good place to start shooting,

Monday at a Marines center of recruiting,

It is called the Second Amendment of the constitution,

It’s the amendment that makes it OK for mass execution,

I think it is clear the USA is long gone, it has died,

Official statement is: death was self-inflicted suicide,

Oh President

Oh president, the president of the USA,

Changes his opinion never knows what to say,

He attacks then he doesn’t then he does, then…

He shall sign papers and wave with his fancy pen,

At the end of the day what we see is a balloon,

With a red behind, basically a silly baboon,

Oh president, oh president of the USA,

Please make up your mind and be gone, away,

Addicted to Chemo

I’m addicted to chemo; I need my daily fix,

Without it I feel like another hanging crucifix,

I need my IV and these four pills twice a day,

Followed by gallons of water and a pound of hay,

Then I hang on to sanity by sleeping away half a day,

Considering the alternative, chemo is child’s play,

So on I go now for 2 more cycles, to make half a year,

Can’t wait to sit on the balcony with a cigar and a beer,

Morbidity

I had grapefruit for breakfast and orange for lunch,

Accompanied by almonds, pistachios and walnuts to crunch,

A bit of triple cream brie and Stilton on an English muffin,

It was all that one needs, to be put in a fancy coffin,

A tall glass of pink champagne, followed by Espresso,

Two homemade biscotti made with that special dough,

What else does a man need when spring has sprang?

When the world around goes up in smoke and a big bang,

Wake me up when it’s all over the fake news and stupidity,

This world is obsessed with religious related morbidity,
