Out with the Old?


In With The ...


 Alright everyone Black Bird here and hoping your Christmas week went as well as could be. Mine went very well thanks to family and friends like you. But we now come to the end of another year and with that as it goes in some quarters comes or should come an end to stuff we'd just as well like to leave behind with the out goin' year. A good riddance kinda thing as it were ok. So here are a few things to witch this Bird will be glad to be rid of.


 War mongerin' and those proxy wars that some many so called war makers have a hand in. Along with all the killin' that goes with 'em. Yes Good riddance to all that huh. Add to that all the crappy stuff that went down around here this passin' year. Like all the so called political crap we had be subjected to. All the bitter acrimony. All the sheer Bullshit that went with all that crap. All the pros & cons, the fors & againsts and the flat out hate mongerin' that egged it on.  Yes a hardy Goodbye to all that crap. And lets not leave out all the mistreatment and the disrespect toward eachother and all the heartache it caused. Now I not even scratxhin' the service of all the crap that will be washed out with this exiting year. But you get my drift don't ya? So lets all with a bright and hardy cheer. Riase a glass high in the air and toast Good Riddance to this  out goin'crapy year. Knowin the best is out there on its way over here. Cheers!


  OK I know this is a bunch of bird droppings I'm tossin' up here but I can't help it. We're all gonna go out or stay home to party and celebrate with family and friends. And don't get me wrong I'm all for it. I'm one of the luckyest birds who has the means to do just that and I can't say how much I appreciate it and remind meself of just that. Especially at this time. I also wish all my friends here at Thoughts along with everyone else. A good fun and safe time with your love ones and good friends. Just remember your very lucky to have them. Because for some and way far too many for this Bird to disregard and just forget. It wil be a non event passin'by spent alone in sone kind of sad lament. To them it's just the same old thing from one year to another. Bleeker for most sad to say. As they see and here all the revelry goin' on all about.

I for one shall raise a glass to them. And in silence I shall acknowledge them.

This is your friendly neighborhood Black Bird wishin' and hopin' you all the very best in this comin' New Year.



Salt of the Earth


Let's drink to the hard working people
Let's drink to the lowly of birth
Raise your glass to the good and the evil
Let's drink to the salt of the earth
Say a prayer for the common foot soldier
Spare a thought for his back breaking work
Say a prayer for his wife and his children
Who burn the fires and who still till the earth
And when I search a faceless crowd
A swirling mass of gray and
Black and white
They don't look real to me
In fact, they look so strange
Raise your glass to the hard working people
Let's drink to the uncounted heads
Let's think of the wavering millions
Who need leading but get gamblers instead
Spare a thought for the stay-at-home voter
Empty eyes gaze at strange beauty shows
And a parade of the gray suited grafters
A choice of cancer or polio
And when I look in the faceless crowd
A swirling mass of grays and
Black and white
They don't look real to me
Or don't they look so strange
Let's drink to the hard working people
Let's think of the lowly of birth
Spare a thought for the rag taggy people
Let's drink to the salt of the earth
Let's drink to the hard working people
Let's drink to the salt of the earth
Let's drink to the two thousand million
Let's think of the humble of birth
