Super Who

What if superman wore a cape of pink
While flying through the air,
Just think of it as different,
Would we really care?
Imagine batman’s mask
In a cool electric blue,
Would they be less of hero’s
Doing their daily task.
If Donald duck wore pants,
And Oliveole was cute,
Would we laugh more or less
Or be just as much amused?
If Roy Rogers horse were white
And Lone Rangers a shiny black
Would we still think of them as classics,
Would we want them to come back?
If Brutus were a black man
With Popeye being white
Laughing at the way,
They do there silly fights.
What is it with color
And how it really is?
Being bitter to one another
What’s yours is rarely his.
Maybe cartoons could be the answer
To show us a new way,
Laughter and imagination
At the beginning of each day.
Perhaps the children that we teach
Could educate how we feel.
Just a box of colors
Ain’t really no big deal!

Big Boots Billy

I came ridin’ into town on a three legged horse
tired and worn as can be
when I slid out the saddle and pulled up my jeans
saw everybody laughing at me.
It didn’t hurt me none or bother me t’all
to see all stop and stare,
cause I’m a mean old hombre a Texas cussin’ outlaw
and you think I really give a care?
My name is Big Boots Billy, I know it’s kinda silly
to have a name that tells it all
and sometimes I wonder just what is being heavy
instead of just being so small.
Yea, I’m the Little Texas thrilla’ cause I eat armadillo
ropin’em like a steer
just a fire on their middle and tearin’ off them legs
and wash it down with a Lone Star Beer.

Lil' One

I like outside, water, bikes, and trees
playing all day, and easy to please.
Getting dirty by lunchtime,
coming in for a while
hearing your voice,
and seeing your smile.
I like inside too,
especially TV
when there's something that's on
made just for me.
I don't like the words,
I must confess
when you look and then tell me
my room is a mess,
but like it or not
I'll always love you
from morning til' night time, 
And everything that you do.
