My mind often stirs to along ago day
When I see the land of the Rockaway
A tribe blessed to live by the Sea
Proud Brave and peacefully Free

At the oceans edge is where it appeared
By man never before seen or feared 
My eyes got a sharp clear view
My mind would not deem it true
I stood frozen still as death
Forced myself to take a breath
Then without the slightest sound
It was gone  could not be found

 Yes it was an unreal sight
It turned my hair pure white
Now I feel a shiver in my heart
From this beach I can not part
 I feel here I must remain
If I am to see it again
The Great Spirit once more
Calls me to visit the shore

Already? Time for another? Seems like it was just last year and this is a LeapYear!
Fat Tuesday
Get all your sinning done
Not really sin call it fun
Leave your morals at home and have a ball
No one cares  No not at all
The evil CEOs of late
Lounge about and await their fate
No one seems to have a worry
To a man they are not sorry
The president speaks and asks for a bill
That would keep them there in the till
The money to be used is yours and mine
And I do not wish to contribute a dime
These men just didn’t wake up one day
and think. There must be an easier way
Not petty crime  No that’s beneath them
Life savings and fortunes tempt em
Fat Tuesday sees a lot of sinning
Ash Wednesday sees some repenting
Thank God there is forgiveness
No matter how evil your business

My Valentine

Of all the angels I've known in my life
The one I love best is the one I call wife
Prettier than a thousand words
More melodic than a choir of birds

Has stood beside me and cheered me on
In high and low times we happened upon
I struggle for words to express my deep love
For this lady of grace sent from above

I'll love her forever beyond time itself
and thank her for the happiness I've felt
She is my Valentine
She is my Sunshine

More than that she is my Life
I thank God she is my Wife
I am Ed  Broderick and I approve this message
