I Don't Know by Van Eaton 

things my father said to me, been putting me through the test
always walk a straight line son, I've been trying to do my best
sometimes i can't take it in, lord knows this world's gone wrong
i've been trying hard to let it all slide, and keep on keeping on.

now work it don’t come easy and oil has gone sky high
i would throw in the towel tomorrow, but i can't even afford to die

look man, what's the deal, i'm a native of this land
seems the king loves to steal, it's time we took a stand
rise up to this call my brothers, rise up for this fight
how did it ever become a crime to do what we know is right
i don’t know ........oh lord ....... i don’t know

some folks follow fashion, and some folks they're just slow
the preacher man done played his hand, now we face a long hard road
what is right and what is wrong, the line used to be so clear
don't talk about the sign of the times, the end is always near

i see it all around me, how can so many be so blind
they're easily led when things get tough, and fear keeps them in line

look man, what's the deal, i'm a native of this land
seems the king loves to steal, it's time we took a stand
rise up to this call my brothers, rise up for this fight
how did it ever become a crime to do what we know is right
i don’t know ........oh lord ....... i don’t know

Mission Accomplished by James Wisniewski 

(the day the Pope died)

It thunders and rains outside as I contemplate a dream
of my family attending my brother's funeral
(he was still alive in the dream).

The nearness of nature's retrieval taking
my good friend and next door neighbor.
Sixty seven, and we had joked around
the morning that he hit the ground, eyes closed,
never to open again.

Now his grandchildren peer over the balcony
waiting for the flute guy to come joke with them.

Lessons to be learned....

In his last days he told his wife,
"I've finally got my shed organized the way I want it"......

Mission accomplished.
