'Hammered By The Blues' Burma Shave Poetry

It's a good day when you arise fully aware;
Grateful for your gifts that you freely share;
But it's a great day when challenged to rise above;
By responding to hatred with compassion and love!

There ain't no secret in how to build a good life;
It starts with respect and avoiding petty strife;
It all comes full circle when gratitude is your guide;
Allow compassion for all mankind nourish your pride!

Sadly we live in a time where truth is attacked;
We're prone to accept memes not factually backed;
It's time to renew respectful communication one on one;
Adopting reasonable compromise that embraces everyone!

If you come to a crossroads, compelled to choose;
Embrace your core values, and you'll never loose;
Choices are easy to make but hard to follow thru on;
It takes grit and integrity, flexin' determination brawn!

Are you driven by fears or by positive inspiration;
What occupies your thoughts becomes your narration;
That dialog influences your world for good or for bad;
You can choose to uplift with love, or be stagnantly sad!

Hatred and fear spreads with the speed of a hurricane;
Twisting truth to suit ideology, inspiring anger and pain;
Love and compassion builds trust at a slower, steadier pace;
Creating bonds of understanding throughout the human race!

Our time here is a beautiful gift, although painfully finite;
We strive, learn and create, hopefully impacting bright;
Our life is defined in memories carried by loved ones we touch;
It's communion of joy in our simple journey, cherished so much!

It is very difficult to teach, but we all naturally learn;
We're the sum of our perceptions of which we discern;
We are who we are, sewing chaos or peace, along the way;
Either part of the problem or part of the fix at the end of day!

Reasonable folks can disagree on issues of the day;
It's commonsensible to foster respect with 'us' vs 'they';
When it's all said and done, it's about the commonality of 'we';
One Planet, One People, One Love when we become hatred free!

If you end up again somewhere you don't wanna be;
You may realize your old tricks are no longer the key;
To learn from mistakes you must work a better plan;
Kick the old you to the curb and stand up like a man!

Some folks rely on luck, others on pure-d skill;
Serendipity's OK but solid talent will always kill;
Work your craft, woodshed some more and then repeat;
The rewards will be evident and success will taste sweet!

Fear in general; of loss, of 'different', or even of change;
Is so unnecessary, moving you right into hatred's range;
We simply gotta live together, progressin' forward as one;
Trade fear for love 'n respect to preserve our future's run!

If your narrative is filled with vitriol and derision;
It's an indication that you need a spiritual revision;
Your time here is short, don't waste it disrespectful and hatin';
Rejoice in your ride, replete with compassion and appreciatin'!

If yer still learnin', you're still growin';
If you're still growin', life is still flowin';
The path ahead might not be as long as the path behind;
Just keep steppin' side by side with the rest of mankind!

It is all very transitory, designed to be enjoyed right now;
Don't waste time regretin' the past or sweatin' future how;
Life tickles your palate after the lips, yet before you swallow;
Savor moments before they're gone leavin' you sad and hollow!

Modern politics practiced seems to divide;
Civility withers as alternative facts misguide;
Truth is black and white, not differing shades of gray;
Common goals, simple solutions insure we win the day!

When dreams require life imbued;
You must gird your loins and collude;
Tap all resources and forge relentlessly ahead;
Until your success is demonstrably widespread!

Honor and integrity will wash away sins of the past;
It ain't what you've done, it's about direction recast;
The path is full of conflicts, and we all have feet of clay;
But character defines you, guiding you safely on the way!

In trying times, have faith in your sisters and brothers;
With respect, share the love for all fathers and mothers;
We pray for the day when mankind understands we are all One;
Make respectful compassion our mantra for peace under the sun!

There is magic in our hearts, share it with all;
There is joy to be spread, heed the season's call;
Practice random acts of kindness, inspired by grace above;
Change the world with the undeniable power of pure love!

Don't espouse resolutions, just commit to change;
Imagine goals with purpose and priority arranged;
What you think about you will bring about with a bit of grit;
The new you looks good on you, once your old habits are quit!

Real Peace is not just the absence of strife;
It is heartfelt love 'n respect for EVERY life;
It's tough to embrace if you heed fear's clarion call;
Work for a better US, and tear down hatred's wall!

Be true to your cause, but don't beat a dead horse;
Learn to abide, reconcile and move on, of course;
All things have purpose, and end up just as they should;
Serenity thru acceptance and wisdom makes it all good!

Truth is always Truth, but common sense is rare;
It needs to be nurtured with practice and care;
We know what we likes, we need to spread it around;
With respect and One Love, universal kindness is found!

Shared Love creates joy and don't cost a thing;
It warms all folks hearts and makes souls sing;
It ain't just for the season, it's but a simple way to live;
In the end, the joy received is equal to the Love you give!

Delivered loud and consistent, lies are embraced as fact;
Detail fades quickly as the news cycle is carefully stacked;
Inquiring minds now accept 'facts', alternative and self serving;
Taking in just enough information to make ignorance deserving!

The best 'arrow' in our Character Quiver is tolerance;
It is an effective tool to overcome our base ignorance;
We can't be expected to understand everyone's intention;
But we can 'live and let live', engaging in hate abstention!

You'd do best to trade out your fear for curiosity;
It helps your heart exfoliate unattractive callosity;
You'll be amazed to discover what we can achieve together;
Breaking the cycle of prejudice, cutting loose hatred's tether!

It seems as tho our differences separate us;
As we berate, isolate and create a big fuss;
We should not feel attacked, as if it's a personal issue;
Seize opportunities to unite, compromise and continue!

Don't be part of the problem, take a role in the solution;
Share the love, extend respect, and make a contribution;
We are all in this together, on a tiny speck in the universe;
We either advance together in unity, or abortively disperse!

If you complained today, you just wasted your time;
If you were grateful today, you embraced joy sublime;
When you commit an act of kindness, without getting caught;
The world becomes brighter, spreading the good that you got!

You can't accept inclusion, if you base your conclusions on fear;
Neither fight nor flight inspire peace, love or understanding here;
Makin' things better while hangin' in this time and in this place;
Requires practicin' selfless kindness; with the serenity you embrace!

We live in a time where the truth never seems clear;
It is a rare and precious thing, obviously very dear;
The value is sterling, it's desirability and pursuit is paramount;
It is more important than ever to embrace and never discount!

With time, folks will forget the lies that you tell;
They will even forgive evil deeds deserving Hell;
The one thing that defines, what they won't forget;
Is how you make 'em feel; whether joyous or upset!

A self-aware being will establish values as a guide;
Whether open to possibilities or trapped by fear inside;
The choice is singular, neither all right nor entirely wrong;
The world created is either One Love or a cliquish throng!

Love and Hate are reactions to our world's view;
It's determined by our attitude, as if right on cue;
What influences that sentiment is either fear or gratitude;
Soar thru life with pure joy or build hard walls to exclude!

Pop always said there's more horses asses than horses;
Advising folks possessing common sense to join forces;
Since one step forward with two steps back ain't efficient;
Avoid the stray asses and rise above the fray, omniscient!

So reasonable folks will disagree on issues, that's true;
Both may've honorable perceptions but contrary view;
We must reconcile without fear at the end of the day;
Diffuse barbed issues, simple compromise is the way!

You can't fight politics and you can't change religion;
You CAN find common ground to help end division;
After all, if you don't do it, heaven knows 'they' won't;
Get along, evolve, thrive together in peace;..or don't!

As you travel this life, eyes open wide;
Let honor and integrity be your guide;
Don't be hobbled by fear or the hatred it creates;
Soar with One Love, shedding prejudice's weights!

It ain't words that sound honest and true;
It's actions and facts that define true blue;
What you hear and read may be self serving lies;
Relax, trust your heart, keepin' eyes on the prize!

It 's not about 'you', it's all about 'US';
We're all passengers on a worldwide bus;
We gotta get along in case that 'bus' breaks down;
The only way forward is embracin' common ground!

If you believe the path thru your life is unfairly tough;
YOU chose the direction to learn when enough's enough;
You can only move forward when your lesson is learned;
Otherwise you'll repeat mistakes without serenity earned!

If, at the end of your long journey, you come to find;
Service to others was always at the top of your mind;
With generosity, kindness in your heart, and mistakes rectified;
You've lived your life well; ascend with honor, peace and pride!

If someone were to judge human evolution so far;
It'd shock ‘em we've managed to get where we are;
The first nonnegotiable rule of a self aware creature;
Respect ALL life before self, with love as your teacher!

In today's world, our expectations are rarely met;
Sometimes it's sweet, sometimes not, it's a safe bet;
Know in the Grand Scheme there's a balance for us pawn;
Simply go with the flow, your OK, Stay Calm and Carry On!

Truth can't be constructed, opinion based, or fabricated;
Even tho in social media 'alternate facts' are celebrated;
We need to rise above and accept realities inconvenient;
Embracing our basic similarities to dispel disagreement!

If you wanna make a change, better start now;
Don't wait for a moment or be slowed by how;
Avoid the stagnation while analyzing your plan;
Go with love in your heart, applyin' gentle hand!

Hang on to the lessons learned in the sandbox;
Don't eat the wet sand and never throw rocks;
Build what you dream, don't stop ‘til completed;
And treat all kids just like you wanna be treated!

Time is a nonrenewable commodity that always is spent;
Don't prioritize and you'll wonder where the heck it went;
All things can be accomplished if you stick to a plan true;
Take one step at a time all the time to insure diligence due!

Don't take the bait from meme's posted on the net;
Whatever the subject, it's designed to justify or upset;
Dulling desire for truth and shorten your attention span;
Keeping us divided, numb and programmed like a caveman!

Joy grows from a seed, nurtured by the music you love;
It magically converts the negatives you must dispose of;
Sharing with others and spreading harmony is the best gift;
Creating happiness and soulful tranquility, a spiritual up lift!

It's said that what you think about;
Is exactly what you will bring about;
Intentional living will breathe life into your belief;
Change the world, share the love, bestow relief!

When love's freely offered with no intention of harms;
It Influences the intractable and peacefully disarms;
It's a start that basks two souls in a light from above;
Pass it on to spread peace that we all can be part of!


Some days it seems like fate conspires against us;

It may confound, frustrate and inspire us to cuss;

That's when the three steps forward require one step back;

Embrace the zen of perspective, peacefully keepin' on track!



Strap yourself in, seize all control and plan the ride;

It's your road, whether up and down or side to side;

It is completely up to you to define the lessons learned;

With integrity and compassion, reap the wisdom earned!



Chaos always rains down in our agitated world;

Don't let it define and make you fetally curled;

No matter the maelstrom, peace is always intimately near;

With a heart filled with love, compassion and absence of fear!



Make time to shut down the computer, turn off the phone;

Consider it an old school mental health day in a peace zone;

They say 'No news is good news', and today that's particularly true;

It is the best way to refresh, recover, and adjust perspective anew!



Spring is a time of cleansing rebirth;

For us individuals as well as the earth;

Plant seeds of empathy to foster understanding;

Nurture compassion while your love is expanding!



I believe we all 'got' simple math in elementary schools;

Odd that politicians, pundits and opines think we're fools;

One side says 1 and 1 is 2.5, the other swears it is one and a half;

Truth remains in the middle, don't ever put stock their fuzzy math!



The grand success of progress is insured at the start;

It's initiative, integrity and drive, not your plans, so smart;

If ya got the gumption to find your purpose, and achieve your goal;

It don't matter how messy the journey if you remain true to your soul!



Man's inhumanity seems more prevalent as society ages;

It is a sign of greed driven bent, that races to end stages;

Remember all life is a gift, to loudly defend and deeply cherish;

Lest we sell our humanity cheap and without a whisper, perish!



Shining a light on controversy, the cause is mostly the same;

Applying common wisdom just doesn't assign correct blame;

The opinions of human beings are based on emotional evolution;

While technology has passed us by, overwhelming our resolution!



Hang on to old school principles to help get ya thru;

No matter what Naybobs and bought politicians do;

They're transitory inconveniences, like zits on yer nose;

Clean 'em up, they won't be here long, everyone knows!



We should strive to make tomorrow better than today;

Learn from the past and adjust is simply the best way;

The choice is yours to make, you improve or stagnate;

Pro-gress or wallow in excuses you constantly conflate!



Sometimes the best laid plans crash and go awry;

The flu may kick our ass; hopin' we curl up and die;

The world ain't always our oyster and our luck may even fail;

But gettin' up beats the alternative of slippin' beyond the pale!



Ain't got time to ponder the priorities of the mainstream;

The good Lord knows it's enough to make a person scream;

Take solace in the notion you're in total control of your choices;

Just treat folks right, pay it forward and ignore discordant voices!



When the flow of current events attacks values held dear;

Know in your heart: Love beats hate; hope overcomes fear;

It may not seem like much, but it is everything; guaranteed;

It will soothe your worried mind and leave your spirit freed!



We have faith in our sisters and brothers;

We have love for all fathers and mothers;

We pray for a day when we embrace us as One;

With compassion and peace for all under the sun!



As we look about, we tend to focus on our differences;

It may be our appearance, or it might be preferences;

The fact is we all have much more in common it seems;

Each and everyone of us are surely united by our dreams!



We reconcile the old and look forward to the new;

It is what well adjusted, optimistic good folk do;

Lift a glass toastin' friends who passed & to a fresh new year;

Hopin' after 365 we will be healthy, much wiser, AND still here!



The path we choose is based on what we believe;

Belief is trust, faith and confidence conceived;

It ain't necessarily hard facts or tangible matter;

Challenge your opinions often to clear banal chatter!



Serendipity brings opportunity to your door;

Attitude and action determine loss or score;

Ya can't blame the stars or even dumb luck;

If fear paralyzes, someone else gets the buck!



A life well lived is honored by being grateful;

Appreciating it all whether joyous or fateful;

All you really have when it’s said and done;

Are memories, self-respect and love by the ton!



Ya can't change the stripes on an ol' cat;

It ain't in yer power to teach where it's at;

What you can do is do the best with YOUR life;

Leavin' the fools in the dust wrestlin' with strife!



It is ironic that our small differences are first to cause irreparable divide;

While our huge similarities bind us together in tragedy's overwhelming tide;

When we're all overcome by the darkness before the dawn, hope is resolute;

We should keep hope alive daily, share love freely, to insure peace absolute!



Some folks see the brilliance, even in darkest hours grip;

With faith that's resolute, no matter how bleak the trip;

Others believe they're victims, overcome by constant deception;

The difference simply is, a matter of their chosen perception!



The world we live in, is in constant change;

You learn, adapt, overcome, and rearrange;

Love based paradigms just may insure our continuance;

By creating a better humanity in our sphere of influence!



Become a voice of change, a power for good;

Forget what might've been, but do what could;

Monumental change begins with one idea grown in one heart;

Create a tidal wave of pure love, givin' mankind a fresh start!



Most enlightened folks learned the right life stuff in the sand box;

It's those simple lessons that comfort and ease life's hard knocks;

It's not too late to reflect and embrace those simple, yet effective truths;

It ain't the wisdom come from a hard road, it's the epiphany of youths!



What you sow, so shall you reap;

With discord, it's anger you'll keep;

If the harvest you crave is happiness and peace;

Plant seeds of love, compassion and never cease!



Mistakes repeated seem to indicate predilection;

Like crack, they can become a thorny addiction;

If the path you walk feels like it's under a bad sign;

Adjust your state of mind and stroll in your sunshine!



Modern news is salacious entertainment using directed opacity;

Pure truth is twisted, creating a particular constructed reality;

We abandon cognitive analysis to accept fabricated alternate facts;

Effectively dumbing down humanity, giving common sense the axe!



From the dawn, mankind has amazed with it’s innovation and technology;

But this species who have come so far with limited knowledge of cosmology;

Still cling to the ways before the dawn; fearful, insular, divisive and hateful;

So even with great progress, peace remains elusive, keepin' the future fateful!



The world is full of self-centered, snap chattin', tweetin', selfie takin' folk;

It's evolution of shallow techno-social interaction, makin' humanity a joke;

Stalled at a crossroads-choosin' moment, do we drive or lay under the bus;

Pogo summed it up right: "Yep Son, We have met the enemy and he is us"!



Don't despair or cave on in when hatred comes to town;

It's the darkside of humanity designed to bring you down;

Testing your resolve and faith that pure love is the ultimate power;

Human kindness, acceptance and forgiveness will triumph and tower!



When technology outstrips common sense, emboldened by greed;

We cling to puerile pursuits rather than addressing other's need;

Evolution of mankind's spirit will shrivel if compassion is cast aside;

Embrace the 'one of us' as 'the all of us', then hatred cannot abide!



The world may seem to spin askew every now and then;

To return the balance adjust your attitude, embracing zen;

The external forces that demand your attention are beyond control;

Shed perceptions based on illusion and fear, to bring peace to yer soul!



The skills you were given for yer time here are a gift from above;

They serve you always thru trials, triumphs, tribulations, and love;

Those gifts with a strong faith are all the tools that you really need;

With humility your anchor, gratitude and hope insure you'll succeed!



We celebrate the good, shed tears for the bad, keepin' on keepin' on;

That's simply a human event reaction and has been since time's dawn;

But reactions reinforce the illusion, that we have absolutely no control;

While true intentional living defines your path giving power to the soul!



The power of the people is dependent on the unity of one;

Takin' a step at a time, movin' forward until the day is done;

Be grateful for accomplishment and blessed for those you touch;

Cause happiness is a way of life with leverage to change so much!



We've come a long way, but got farther to go, as you can plainly see;

We must put others first, love flat out, and insure no child goes hungry;

It seems overwhelming, an impossible dream, a task beyond all means;

But if we work together, one day at a time, it ain't as hard as it seems!



Charity begins at home, but our home is planet wide;

We must care for all, whether on the right or left side;

Respect and honor should be pandemic, a virus from above;

Spreadin' thru every heart and soul, leavin' the legacy of love!



It's what you don't expect that creates opportunity grand;

It's how you react, embrace & capitalize that fills the hand;

Ya gots no say at all in what comes your way, whether bad or good;

But you are in full control to direct a sweet result, just like it should!



Your proclivities and inclinations tug on your journey of choice;

The path you choose is best when you challenge that inner voice;

Consider values held in your heart rather than indulgent craving;

You can effect change in your world that is holistically lifesaving!



Anxiety is self-fueled and drowns in an unending wave;

Created by fear in our mind it causes our spirit to cave;

Ignore the overwhelming 'what might be' and focus on 'the now';

Swim the emotional stream just one stroke at a time is the how!



Age only matters if you spend time countin' the days;

Instead of focusin' on the journey, growin' in all ways;

It don't matter 'what' you are, defined by accomplishments and skills;

It's the 'who' you are, with honor and integrity payin' life's daily bills!



Start each day remembering ‘why’ you do what it is you do;

It is the rationale and reason that renews the spirit for you;

You won't get burnt out by everyday tasks and chores you ply;

If you go about gettin' to the 'get', without forgettin' the 'why'!



Trust is surely the bedrock of any relationship;

You're either totally singular or in partnership;

It's freely offered, but destroyed by acts callous and self serving;

The truth of it is some folks are just too immature to be deserving!



There is a difference in doin' what's 'right' and doin' the 'right thing';

What's 'right' is only for your own benefit, like grabbin' that brass ring;

The 'right thing' is for the good of All, with no regard of how you may pay;

Karma tallies those choices, balancin' your account at the end of the day!



Friendship and kindness are freely offered, trust must be earned;

If you’re betrayed, forgiveness is easy, just a tough lesson learned;

But when trust is shattered, like fine crystal, it will never be the same;

It is integrity that defines your character from start to end of the game!



Truth is the purgative that cleanses the soul;

It destroys all known fears, makin' us whole;

Cut thru the emotional briar patch, built with self deception;

Enjoy the peaceful confidence of honesty and new perception!



With clear sense of purpose and dedication strong;

We can cure all that ails, and fix what is wrong;

Love and compassion demands we treat others as self;

Embrace oneness of all and leave prejudice on the shelf!



Now it seems some folks have a different definition of truth;

Tryin' to impress with made up stories like immature youth;

Honor and integrity are character traits developed when you mature;

Spinnin' tales with alternate facts, you're only foolin' yourself for sure!



To make the world a better place, serve with sincerity and integrity;

Creating opportunities of engaged universal love with balanced parity;

Empower the flow with truth and simple unprejudiced respect for all;

These positivist proclivities create huge tangible effect for acts so small!



'No matter where you go, there you are' is all about truth inside;

Your life is but a reflection of who you are, your honor will abide;

Your reputation ain't damaged by others, it's all acts committed by you;

Alternate facts can never change what's real, but honesty and integrity do!



In this enlightened media age, folks still sell snake oil that's endorsed as 'truth';

It don't matter what side of the aisle they're on, or how they vote in the booth;

It's cacophonous siren songs of lies and deceit designed to steal common sense;

They magnify fears, while selling their program, but it's just hatred they dispense!



You only gots one person you really need to impress;

That'd be the one lookin' back in the mirror with redress;

Tomorrow is the day to fix todays mistakes accepting the lesson;

Then move on with head held high side-steppin' a pity session!



Gratitude is instantaneous if you appreciate the 'now';

Focus on what is, not 'was' or 'will be' is the simple how;

Your stress will disappear and you will be bathed in positivity;

Change your world with love, practicing this daily proclivity!



You own your own feelings, as others own theirs;

You ain't changin' minds with logic or intense cares;

'Live and let live' may be trite, but it just happens to be true;

Respect others differences as you expect them to respect you!



If you lower your expectations, you may avoid disappointment;

But you lose your path's direction simply by lack of appointment;

Not only seize the day, but take responsibility of all things relevant;

You'll reap the rewards of life well lived, both honorable and elegant!



Some believe it’s appropriate when you always text instead of call;

Sure you’ll save some time, but it’s not human communication at all;

If you live on social media while avoiding real life when you’re able;

You have traded your humanity to be a jackass in a cyber stable!



Know that good, bad and indifferent is created by personal choice;

How you react reflects your character, given substance and voice;

You may soar above it all, or get stuck in crisis defined by drama;

Exchange your fears for optimism or be mired in emotional trauma!



When fear whispers "You ain't strong enough to weather the storm";

Laugh in the face of shallow doubt, stand and straighten your form;

You've been given the skills to overcome, conquer, and win the day;

Common courage incites you to 'be the storm' and make your way!



If you're searchin' for a better way, to insure you do your part;

Know the joy is in the giving, with a gift straight from the heart;

Show gratitude for all God's Children, sharing love with all you meet;

It's a simple way to change the world and make the healin' complete!



Be grateful for ALL yer blessin's both solid and intangible;

This is the stuff that that fills the heart, palpable and magical;

Put the past in the rearview, and bask in the possibilities of tomorrow;

Enjoy today at it's best, share the love, inspiring good cheer to overflow!



The magic of Christmas touches young and old;

We welcome all into our extended family fold;

With glad tidings, good cheer and love from the heart;

May your dreams come true, and let the New Year start!



'Tis a few days before Christmas so we be rockin' the pad;

We're gonna make this the best celebration you ever had;

Tune in, turn on, and keep doin' whatever you likes to do;

Wishin'  health, peace and happiness from our heart to you!



In order for the New Year to fulfill the promises of opportunity;

You need to shake off despair, developing an acquired immunity;

The key to great good happening is simply the state of your mind;

Accept all things as either blessin's or lessons, peacefully entwined!



Politics are designed to focus on and magnify your fear;

Inspiring vitriol while you defend your values held dear;

Those values are personal, your individual guide to livin' a good life;

They ain't license to judge others, causin' foolish, unproductive strife!



The state of your life is but a reflection of your state of mind;

It's a choice reacting with either love or hate, to the daily grind;

Yesterday's passed, tomorrow's a dream, you only live in the now;

If happiness is your goal, then love, respect and honor is the how!



"I think he died of a Tuesday, Stan Laurel was famed to say;

But they wouldn't go at all if they caught the blues that day;

You can ensure yer good health with a fresh dose of blues;

Doctor Blueshammer is dispensing right now for all of youse!"



If you fret over what might be, instead of livin' now, you empower fear;

It steals peace from your life's trip, allowing unwarranted stress to steer;

How can simple faith soothe your soul if you despair and just toss it away;

Fill your tank with high test love and share with all on the Hope Highway!



The world is made up of the family of 'we', sometimes overruled by the 'I';

Together 'we' can do great things, overcoming of the arrogance of 'my';

While the 'I' clings to indulgent delusion, a continuous self-serving dupe;

Truth, beauty, and love are collective things, requiring belief of the group!



No matter the age or experience we have the capacity to act the fool;

We indulge mayhem 'cause stupidity ain't just flappin' gums and drool;

You will let yer fears be magnified by slick lies from some shylock rube;

When you feel it creepin' in, back away from fB and turn off the tube!



Opinions are generally conceived in emotion rather than born in facts;

Bolstered by half-truths, cherry picked, providing rational for our acts;

When it comes to lyin' to ya, the best liar would be the face in the mirror;

Embracing self-righteous hypocrisy, abandoning truth to deal with our fear!



Politicians swear they know best for you and will provide what you need;

That mind numbing regurgitated pabulum is the poison they force feed;

The only change comes from the steel of your resolve and integrity in your heart;

Stand tall, let the BS roll off while fears take a hike, and learn the livin' well art!



The challenges we face are never as hard as we believe;

Just forge ahead, learn the lesson, and stress you'll relieve;

What don't kill ya makes ya stronger, and leaves you empowered;

Takin' the heroes path, living with honor and resolve uncowered!



Friendship is the glue that binds free spirits on the loose;

If it's true, it inspires selflessness without a moments excuse;

With love and respect, we cover each other in the face of fears;

Sharin' laughter with abandon, and sorrow with common tears!



You and I hold in our hearts the power to change everything;

More gratitude, acceptance and kindness makes the bell ring;

If we all live intentional, engaging our influence for change;

We'll be cashin' in our jackpots at the Happiness Exchange!



Simple lessons always come hard, yet they bring the best reward;

They will leave you spent and ragged, takin' all you can afford;

After you've been thoroughly tested, the peace of knowledge won;

Will wash your spirit in calm élan, healing soul with the energy of ONE!



Our mission is to uplift spirit and share the bounty of brand new;

Don't matter to us if you're in the car, at work or kneelin' in a pew;

Blues shared, has the power to put your worried mind in a better place;

You'll be calm, refreshed, energized and ready to embrace the human race!



The family of man is all inclusive, we ALL belong to the 'One';

We all share this primal mud ball, basking under the same sun;

We have common dreams and desire, we all must succeed to grow;

We either join together in love, or the seeds of destruction we sow!



Who you are is based solely on the choices you make;

It ain't parents, age, economy or politicians so fake;

You alone are responsible for every decision and who you are;

You hold the power to change anything and the chance to go far!



The Spirit is tested when hard times and trouble just won't go;

They will persist until we learn their lesson, embracin' the know;

Now it may seem a tough way to start to live with absolutely no regret;

But It is guaranteed those hard lessons are the ones you’ll never forget!



We come into this life given all the skills we need;

To love, learn, overcome, and ultimately succeed;

Know in your heart that how good it is, is simply up to you;

Just embrace the journey with gratitude, and enjoy the view!



The more you give freely, the more you will receive;

It's a simple karmic thing in which you can believe;

It has worked since time began, and will be true after we're gone;

Truth is constant, life is love, joy occurs, so keep on keepin' on!



I believe in our journey, but there is a better way;

I believe in Brothers and Sisters that try every day;

I believe we must react with love, not give into hatred and fear;

I believe we must stand united together and hold all lives dear!



If ya don't like the way the world turns, change it;

It starts with me and you, begin today and commit;

Our little corner of the planet will be ground zero of change;

Faith in each other and love conquers, ain't all that strange!



Violence comes from the heart, not from a gun or knife;

We choose to either embrace peace or to promote strife;

Let love be your guide, compassion your friend, and hold this notion dear;

We got this thing called life, don't give into hatred or be conquered by fear!



Accept that a better world begins now, and starts with me and you;

With compassion and compromise we can do just what we need to do;

Conquer base fear as it rises, and harken to the song your soul sings;

Embrace the audacity of hope and believe in the promise it brings!



Set goals in the stratosphere, then inch the bar higher;

Give it all you have, pedal to the metal, belly full of fire;

It's better to wear out than rust out travelin' the highway of life;

Inspire passion, share the love, and shed unproductive strife!



Learn from, but don't hang with the Snake Oil seller;

He's got a great delivery, but he ain't an honest feller;

Promise the moon 'n stars, but always deliver so much more;

It’s the secret to success,’n folks will run thru your open door!



This contrary creature called human can be really confusing;

Sometimes it displays love, other times it's bent on contusing;

It appears the goal is to flop around 'til it figures the right way to live;

Silly lil' creature, just sit down, respect each other and learn to forgive!



While on the path, you'll run across folks who lie, yet firmly believe it;

Delusion is their approach to a reality that, for others, simply don't fit;

It's easy to spot 'cause every story starts 'I' or 'My' as they tell their tale;

They are caught in addiction to feed an ego that is demanding yet frail!



Fear is a powerful motivator that steals your freedom to choose;

When you buy into paranoia, you join the crowd destined to lose;

Stay true to yourself, your brothers, sisters, and the world as a whole;

One planet, one people joined by love, compassion and a common goal!



Love of music is universally primal, but the blues speaks to your soul;

It's power is to heal, empowering the flesh and filling a spiritual hole;

Sharin' this sweet gift with all mankind is solely in the hands of the creator;

By supportin' Live Music, the artists, and venues, you make this gift greater!



Change is constant and inevitable, so ya just might as well adapt;

If ya don't, you'll repeat mistakes, stall and otherwise be trapped;

Whether it crushes or caresses, it must be turned into positive lessons;

All ya gotta do is stay on the high road, and always count yer blessin's!



Some folks are cool, some folks try hard, and some just can't grow up;

Don't judge, just do your best, and let integrity fill your daily life’s cup;

The fools are here to make you look good; the evil ones, to test your firm resolve;

We're here to enjoy the trip, make it better, and hopefully help mankind evolve!



When honor, integrity, faith, and sacrifice is offered, sometimes the price is higher;

With eyes wide open and commitment to service, many run into strife, deathly dire;

Heroes are born in the common man's heart, when standing strong in freedom's cause;

Ever eternally grateful, we can never fully repay; so remember and take solemn pause!



If you are waitin' for your reward, it's our point you have missed;

Doin' the 'right thing' is about livin' well always, not makin' a list;

At the end of this journey, as well thru the next you will know peace;

By leavin' this world better off, fulfillin' the terms of the life you lease!



The gifts you've been given don't mean a thing if not properly applied;

It's what you did with 'em, between your birth, up to when you died;

Take nothing, give all, make peace, respect life, and harbor no ill will;

Love all, hate war, fear nothing, create magic, be grateful and just chill!



We engage each week, tryin' to shine some light on the proper path;

Happily, we walk hand in hand, avoiding pitfalls and karma's wrath;

Together, we have the power to make a difference, improving the lot for all;

Embrace the gratitude, share the music, spreadin' the love is our siren's call!



We are captivated by the false sense of time our awareness creates;

Marked by the tears and triumphs illuminated by our loves and hates;

However, we're simply one drop in the cosmic stream, feelin' the joys and woes;

There is no beginning and there is no end, 'cause that's the way the river flows!



Progress and change may cause equal amounts of discomfort and pain;

But if ya ain't movin' forward, you are stranded with no growth or gain;

Buck up, put yer big boy pants on, lean into it and resolutely forge ahead;

It's the only way to make your mark, achievin' yer dreams before yer dead!



Respectin' everyone else ain't as hard as showin' yourself some;

'Cause we are our own worst enemy, after all is said and done;

Trouble brought by others pales compared to the mess we get ourself in;

Get up, embrace the lesson, and toss the rest in the emotional trash bin!



Some folks live a Cardboard Box life with no ties or responsibility;

Others build a Bricks and Mortar life creating the best to our ability;

The choice is yours, either create a solid legacy or be a fart in the breeze;

Either way it's all about the journey, the gratitude and doin' as you please!



Steppin' away from honor and integrity leaves your soul blind;

When you place yourself above others, heartache you'll soon find;

Even after all is said, and all is done, redemption is about livin' a right life;

Change what you can, accept what you can't, 'cause truth cuts like a knife!



When done wrong by others, strive to rise above;

Renounce fear and anger, and embrace pure love;

We must measure our life's dignity by how we chose to react;

Forgiveness and empathy prevents peace from being hijacked!



It may always be easier doin' 'what's right' than doin' 'the right thing';

The latter benefits us all whereas the former may personally cha-ching;

It's about choices that make a better world, not ones that just help you;

The 'big picture' can be hard to embrace as we struggle in the daily do!



Why settle for average when you deserve the flat out best;

Each week we deliver to you a brand new living room blues fest;

You can get us on yer radio or dial us up on the world wide net;

Hammered By The Blues cares for you better than anything else yet!



Life is the easiest AND the hardest thing you'll ever do;

Like rollin' downhill with no brakes wonderin' who to sue;

You forget to enjoy the trip and start worryin' 'bout how it all ends;

It will be OK or not, just dig the scenery and pick up some friends!



If you believe good things are comin', I promise they surely will;

Now, if you focus on the negative, I guarantee you'll get your fill;

It is all about perspective, attitude and a clearly grateful heart;

Make the world a better place, share the love and play your part!



You always got stuff to do, dues to pay and promises to keep;

It is what it is, the rewards are good and the price not too steep;

It is better to try to make a difference than to have never even played;

That's how relevance of life is measured, after all the efforts are weighed!



We look forward to a New Year filled with promise and wonder;

We reconcile the last 365 days like memories of passing thunder;

What we can do to maximize our bounty, both mercenary and in spirit;

Is treat all with love, live each day like it's the last, and just don't fear it!



At the top of the calendar we could say that it’s all downhill from here;

I prefer to think of it like a ship on adventure just now leavin' the pier;

Who knows what we'll see, the new friends we'll make and Oh, the reverie ;

Just show compassion, be grateful and soak it all up, to your full capacity!



Your dreams should embody your hopes rather than embrace your fear;

Your actions should reflect your heart and not irritation comin' too near;

We are but reactive creatures, but have been given gifts of choice and hope;

With the peace you bring, and the love you share it helps the whole world cope!



Our simple mission is to cheer you up when you are feelin' low;

We aims to celebrate your good moments, savorin' sweet and slow;

Whether you are collecting well earned tithes, or payin' overdue dues ;

You know your friends got yer back here at Hammered By The Blues!



Love, Peace, Understanding, and Acceptance makes us One;

If that came to us naturally, we could just focus on the fun;

But it gives you a goal, a sure way to make the world a better place;

Work on it, not for me and not for you, but for the whole Human Race!



Some folks are cat people, others just love a dog;

Some prefer fresh broccoli; others crave smoked hog;

It don't matter what yer fancy is, we all come from the light above;

Just another brother or sister hand in hand, sharin' the pure-d love!



This time of year, cheer flows free and good will is shared by all;

But couldn't we do this all year long, the dream ain't nothin' small;

We can do this thing if we all jump on board and treat all with respect;

It would cripple hate, shrink fear, and in hearts, let the love virus infect!



We wish all folks happiness, good health, and a table full of food;

After all, it's the least you need to inspire that Christmas mood;

What we hope for is so much more, an epic change in the collective heart;

Universal peace, acceptance, and gratitude are the dreams that we impart!



Politics make Politicians shameful, and rational people insane;

No matter which side of the aisle, folks dig in and raise cane;

This builds walls, throws bricks, and makes compromise rare;

We share the same soil and heart, it is time to act like we care!



Even if yer Baby done left ya and some dog just pissed on yer shoe;

The Blues will lift your spirits, curin' everything that is ailin' you;

It's a remedy for the masses, it's a poultice for the darkened soul;

Sharin' that joy with the world is our Hammered By The Blues goal!



As kids we were scared of the dark, but soon learned nothin' was there;

When we got older, we carried fear inside unleashed by random scare;

We're supposed to learn it is only fear that we fear, not stuff out of our control;

Actually, there is 'nothing there', so keep calm, shine on, and continue your roll!



As you mature you find the most important lessons were learned in the sand box;

Share, treat others like you like to be treated, and don't eat candy stuck to yer sox;

The simple truths will guide you as you navigate your personal trek on the river of life;

Yeah, it really IS that easy and even better if you share this wisdom and avoid strife!



Our options are plenty, but life is so dang short;

Choose wisely indeed, before your ship leaves port;

We are what the journey makes us, but one more thing is true;

It's how you appreciate the moments, and love everything you do!



Change is constant, you just gotta adjust;

To stay calm, this is an absolute must;

You can curse it in the morning mirror, but get over it real quick;

Because ya gotta be ready when life pulls out the very next trick!



The more we judge by differences, the father we grow apart;

We appear a species stuck in infancy, obviously close to start;

The simple stuff like acceptance is one of the first things you should feel;

Before we can walk hand in hand together, spreadin' pure love for real!



Sometimes you may feel the sum weight of life well-traveled;

Overwhelming, It can feel like reality may become unraveled;

The glue that binds, with perspective in check, is overwhelming gratitude;

For life, loved ones, music, memories, challenges and a positive attitude!



Joy is that internal thing that you are free to spread and share;

Sharin' demonstrates you are grateful and that you really care;

Pops used to say there are more horses asses than there are horses;

You can find 'em in your Hood, at work, and even on golf courses;

They are the folks who carry 'round hatred, greed and fear, dumpin' it on you;

These poor souls have lost their path and want all of us to be miserable too!



In a better world when things are grand, ya share it;

If your brother is maxed on overload, you help bear it;

The choice is yours, be part of the problem or part of the solution;

You can inspire that better world practicing kindness distribution!

Walk with confidence always embracing the right selection;

The benefits you will reap will take you farther than you believe;

Making a difference, sharing the joy and knowledge you receive!



Success is when you always deliver more than was promised;

It's the best way to convince folks you deal fair and are honest;

After all it's what you expect from others: honor, fairness and truth;

Age ain't nothin', wisdom’s wealth; the price paid by misspent youth!



If we just traveled this world lookin' out for each and everyone;

We'd be rich indeed, spreadin' unfettered happiness under the sun;

All we'd need to do is drop baggage like greed, malice and pride;

Embrace love, respect life, share the music to help turn the tide!

It's about sharing the love all day long and thru all the night;

Believe in yourself and choose to love ALL of the human race;

There is but one rule we need to embrace, it is a simple one indeed;

Treat everyone like you likes to be treated to plant that peace seed!

We all carry baggage unimagined; show compassion, then reflect!

It is strength of common ground that fuels our powers;

We are prone to draggin' 'round a wagon load of misery, shame and worry;

None of it is real, it is just the burden of guilt makin' yer thinkin' blurry;

We dispense the pure D healin' blues, no empty talk!
If yer lookin' for a free ride yer on the wrong track;
We're into sweat equity, ya'll got to give some back; 
We'll provide the inspiration, you gotta give up the sweat; 
Dancin' to duos, trios and even the special house quartet!
Enjoy the sun when it shines in the sky;
No need to consider or even ask why; 
Take the advice freely given and share gratitude; 
Life is way too short to not dig the ride, Dude!
We make a difference when we share the praise;
It dispells the darkness and gives spirits a raise; 
It ain't the destination, it's how we enjoy the trip; 
Always choose the high road if ya'll wanna be hip!
Whether drivin' the couch or dusty back road;
We shoulder yer burdens to lighten yer load; 
It's the least we can do, believe me we checked; 
Our simple goal is to leave yer boredom wrecked!
It don't matter how big they are, they will all fall;
Just use yer dazzlin' dance moves and be 10 ft tall; 
When it's all said and the bell has rung loud; 
Just shout out I'm a blueser and mighty proud!
With a journey of the mind you don't need a map;
It starts with serendipity and ends up with a nap; 
You know we'll care for ya and pay the piper his dues; 
When ya take the trip called Hammered By The Blues!
When you need to get nourished deep in yer soul;
We restore to a rich blue cast, not black as coal; 
  We always leave ya better than when we found you; 
Thats what friends are for, that's just what we do!
 Tho' the economy's shaky and things look bleak;
We jump in the music to find what we seek; 
  We embrace the positive and shine on the bad; 
Dancin' down the blues highway will make ya feel glad!
The cure is simple and the medicine's sweet;
Just feel the music and start movin' yer feet; 
  We can fix the worlds' problems, but it starts with you; 
Share the joy of the blues and others will share it too!
Happiness is easy if ya follows the clues;
Just treat all others well and pay yer dues; 
  Show tolerance for folks that can't find their way; 
And be sure to take a large dose of blues every day!
Now, the best way for you to face yer fear;
Always starts by keepin' good friends near; 
  Then call in the experts from Hammered By The Blues; 
At the end of the session, all yer fears you will lose!
Regular maintenance keeps yer mojo clean;
It don't take long, you know what we mean; 
  It's just an hour a week with friends by yer side; 
Hammered By The Blues is the best thing you've tried!
We rhyme ya, rock ya and rolls ya out the door;
It is so good to leave it all on the dance floor; 
  We can't make ya younger, but you'll enjoy whatcha got; 
'Cause shakin' and shimmyin' make ya'll look hot!
Now we may not be doctors but we do operate;
We toss care to the wind and embrace our fate; 
  We hope for all the time in the world before we go into the night; 
But 'right now' is all the time ya need if'n ya learn to live right!
We'll service ya right no matter the need;
We never follow, we always take the lead; 
  We play just fresh new stuff, ya gots nothin' to lose; 
Ya'll come back and visit at Hammered By The Blues!
The time is right and the music is sweet;
Just hang around a bit and feel the heat; 
  We'll fire up the turntable and play some of the best; 
Put the speakers in the window and have a backyard fest!
Sometimes the load we carry can be great;
It can cause illness or irrational hate; 
  The Blues is the cure and we dispense it for free; 
Relax, take a dose of the 12 bar and you gots the key!
Ya gots to take a chance and set yerself free;
Cast off yer troubles and surely you will see; 
  Lovin' the blues is the best way to travel the road; 
Rejoice and feel the freedom as you lose your load!
