commercial #1 ChapStick

i'm picturing a chapstick commercial:
- 10 seconds
- a bunch of clips of tongue out athletes
- finish with napolean dynamite "my lips hurt real bad"
- then bam: a cool pic of a chapstick tube, a loud lip-smack sound effect and a monotone voice "win."
- done

i can't stoop to poop

i squat and i trot
then i cry on the pot
the weight that i lifted
has me inflicted
and i hope
dear god
this is all not for naught

where the spirit leads

the spirit leads and we find true religion 
not within the confines of a particular system of faith 
but along the way 
in the valley 
on mountain top

here we negotiate
with creation 
and that which is written on our heart 
Creator meets us there 
weak, vulnerable, sickly
strong, confident, bold 
the choice is left to us
love or hate
follow or fall away
and the choice is difficult
never clear cut
ease and destruction
or pain and gain

it's easy to focus
on the unknown
letting slip
the here and now
tangible occupation
as my mind wanders
and I realize success
is getting up and
doing what I know
tomorrow will look after itself
and i'll move forward
leaving a trail

peek a boo

there are things that cannot be unseen
you sir
and your naked lower half
are one of those scenes


my wife and I run
but she broke her bum
and I've messed up my lung
inactivity is toxic
a severe pain in the coccyx
