PLEASE “LIKE” ME!

Officials at tourist destinations are becoming frustrated with “Selfie” takers endangering themselves and disturbing others with antics to obtain “likes’ on Facebook or Twitter.  It seems many are more interested in self-promotion than in the iconic spots they visit.  Thus, Stonehenge becomes a “selfie” backdrop instead of a fascination ancient mystery to gaze upon, ponder and marvel at.  See also “Selfie,” posted December 20, 2013.

 PLEASE “LIKE” ME!
(To the tune of “Moon River,” by Henry Mancini and Johnny Mercer)

Please” like” me!
I’m so insecure.
Feel desperate to be your
new friend.

I’m boasting
in my posting.
And all of my hopes now
on your “like” depend.

My ego needs a little boost.
On your page can I roost
with you?

My vanity’s bold, to be sure.
One cannot be demure
If “likes” you are to score.
Please “like” me!
Please do!

I AM AN AMERICAN – JULY 4, 2015

I AM AN AMERICAN
(To original melody)

Verses:
I am an American
So proudly I say
I live in America
In the U.S. of A

My heart beats American
Courageous and free
I’m a living testament
To the best
That America can be

Bridge:
Some thought our dream wouldn’t last
But the torch once lit has been passed
(Has been passed)

Verse:
I am an American
One limb of the tree
Ever mindful I’m blessed
Up to any test,
An American
That’s me

Refrain:
Big-hearted America
One dream, one destiny
Ever mindful we’re blessed
Up to any test
All Americans, All Americans
All Americans
Are we
