The ballad of: brawling mad-dog sergeant rook [now in: spanish and english] - poetry
A bunch of us guys in the hut
And scrutiny from a distance
When out of the night, he wanted
I hunted to fight him too.
He wobbled like a duck as I
Blocked his punch-
(for I was drunk too),
There was no man, could beat
This bear of a brut,
And such was I, as he looked
With the face of bulldog
And a deadly stare
And when I came down
This mad-dog Sergeant Rook!
I pierced my fingers into his flesh
In echoes he cursed insanities-
As his subordinate cheered him on

La Balada de :
Un grupo de nosotros los muchachos en la choza
Y mirando desde una distancia
Cuando hacia fuera de la noche, él quiso
desee lucharlo también también.
Él se bamboleó como un pato asì, yo
(por que yo también estaba borracho),
No había ningún hombre, que podría golpear
Este oso de un brut,
Y tal era yo, como él miró
Con la cara de bulldog
Y un mirada fija mortal
Y cuando bajé
¡Este Sargento Rook perro rabioso!
Perforé mis dedos en su carne
En ecos él maldijo locuras-
Como su compañero lo alentó
¡Esto fuè tras de La guerra, en Vietnam!. . .

The Man Who Could Not Say Sorry For His Sins
Sorry would be a start.Though you cant take back your mistakes, and you cant disentangle time, you'd think there would be remorse, for such a self helping crime, to send others out to die, to pay the blood price you have decreed, when its completely bluster and posing, all about arrogance and greed, to acquire a perceived niche in history, glowing down the years, is the coverage of your ambition, is the puny limit of your fears, when those you have sent to die, believing implicitly in you, leave relatives at the back of who see, that nonentity you said was true, there is no accepted wisdom now for those, whose amount you dont count, they are yesterdays forgotten, though daily they still mount, no belief of resignation, no admission of guilt to those left behind, just forward with the ego, fast ahead from those times, as if nobody ever happened, as if your lies are quite ok, as if now is what to focus on, and then was a new day, lost back in the mists of time, obscured by clouds half seen, not an cause offense to the living, not impeachable and obscene, you may want to move on now, and close the eyes to your past infamy, but you ought to be tried for treason, and caged for blasphemy.

Im Sorry Mom! A Mothers Day Poem
Mother's Day Poetry,I'm Sorry Mom!I'm sorry for the troubles And the doubts I brought you. I'm sorry for my mistakes, I didn't mean to make you blue.
The Game of Life
When your life becomes unbearable And the light of agree ceases to glow, When all your dreams and aspirations Lie inactive on ambition's death row.When you feel that all is hopeless, Life troubles just seem to abound.
There are many times I set up barriers and walls, invisible but for you come too close, And then you hit them.You amazement what happened.
Testimony to the Night [In English and Spanish]
In the quiet of the freezing night- In its deep northern skies, Dim are the lights, in its coldEvening frost?! Even the stars of the arctic Seem like a ghost stone frozen!Here, here is where you find Peace and the beast within-! Remote, no ears or wordsTo disorder the mind To cement the throat; Here, here is where you die?(for a moment).Here, the sky has eternal eyes Eyes with cosmic tides Tides that never rest: they warWith the Universe- Likened to a dark deep abyss; Endless and never resting?Here my eyes seek and search In countless hours, ebbing and Sweeping the heavens aboveNumbing, changeless- Are the cosmos, the heavens? Here resides a alien peace?Here, resides a curious peace With an army of stars to defeat Shinning, mutely in the darkThe ebbing, eldritch dark; Time has no application here, Here, resides a strange, peace?Cold and oddly numb are my feet, As I look up, upon the many bridges One star bridging the next-as if,If Kings and Queens were Guarding them-the Hosts- O-Yes! A strange, curious peace?Ah! Praise, praise be to thee, to thee Flaming, baking firmaments-ye, Ye, prompt me not, of the wars I left,Of the foes, divine immortals?The enemies that never rest Ah! Praise, praise be to thee, to theeI hear music, harmony from afar (there) There are storms concealed in a storehouse, For tomorrow-war beyond, beyondOrion's dust?perpetual dust; There, there the sun is dim to bleak.
