What? All you can engage in is mean-spirited sniping at Chongo after I have poured out my heart writing a brand new song and have posted it for YOUR specific enjoyment!!!???

Fie, sir, fie! You are as a creeping pox upon the fair face of artistic creation and appreciation alike.

Amos is an artistic creation -- Cubist, I think, or Dadaist. Maybe nihilist. Maybe all three.

I liked it, anyway.

Seems clear that the world of nautical terms still drifts somewhere beyond the wide edges of Rapp's ken, but hell, I can forgive provincialism.

LH, that there is a mighty fine song. I wish you success with it!

Great guns! I'll grease yer ways, ye derelict dead Marine! Ye'll cut the painter and after I've scuppered and careened ye! I'll hull ye between wind and water! Ye think ye've plain sailing and an even keel when ye talk of me lack of nautical ways, but it's only nausea for ye and not nautical. Ye're the kind that'd bring a preacher aboard, ye waster! Ye'd eat bananas aboard a boat, I swear!

Oh. So you know all that--or at least where to find it--but you don't know much about chafing gear? Was it your knowledge or your ignorance that was an overweening pretense? Or perhaps, both?

Okay, here's another new song. About a Budgie. Beauregard the Budgerigar! I recently acquired 4 lovely little Budgies and a sizeable cage, and have been enjoying their cheerful antics ever since. I got the idea for the song just the other day. It clips along ominously in the key of A minor....

Beauregard the Budgerigar                                        Key of Am

Beauregard the Budgerigar's intent on world dominion
He sits there boldly on his perch and contemplates his pinions
He bows to no authority and takes no human orders
Beauregard has plans that reach beyond his cage's borders

Beauregard's a bird who has Napoleonic visions
He sees himself commanding Budgie armies in divisions
Of green and yellow, blue and white with nipping beaks a-flashing
Beauregard intends to send the human world a-crashing

He flexes little wing muscles and preens his long tail feathers
And keeps an eye upon the news, the markets and the weather
The time will come, he knows, to sound a birdie clarion call
That will shatter every window, and rattle every wall

Beauregard has memorized a Budgie Manifesto
To set all Budgies free at last when Beauregard chirps "Presto!"
And sets his legions loose upon a world that's unsuspecting
A billion Budgies can't be stopped! These plans he is perfecting.

The time will come when Mrs Jones decides to clean his cage
Then Beauregard will strike! And Mrs Jones will know the rage
Of a Budgie Caesar on the march...her fate will be quite nasty
Beauregard intends to give the bitch a rhinoplasty

Then Beauregard will free all other Budgies in the realm
And at his feet they'll bow and Beauregard will take the helm
And steer the Budgie ship of state to triumph and to glory
And every future Budgie ever hatched will know his story

The buildings will be all torn down, and trees put in their places
A perch on every hand, and beady eyes on all the faces
A cuttlebone for every bird, a birdbath and some millet
A bowl of seeds for every bird, and a human slave to fill it

It's quiet in the house tonight, the humans all are sleeping
Yet in the darkness I can hear a soft, portentous peeping
It's Beauregard rehearsing as the final day draws near
It's Beauregard the Budgie, he's a bird who knows no fear
Yes, it's quiet in the predawn hours, the humans all are sleeping
Yet in the darkness I can hear a soft, portentous peeping....

We wuz eighty-four from the next of Kay
On a dark and wintry night
And the bar was rife with smell of men
Full o' whiskey and half tight.
In the light of the cold-edged neon sign
That said "Mom's Place" by the road
You could see their faces, worn and wan
ANd the tracks of their heavy loads.

'Twas the Manne of Emmes who got there fust
He'd been leaning on the brown.
Then the Manne of Booques came wandering by
And ordered a stronger round.
And then Stilly Sage, decked out in bells,
Came high-stepping in the door.
And she ordered up some pink-tailed gin
And went dancing' 'cross the floor.

The air was turning pale and blue
As the discourse turned toward sin;
And the doors flapped wide and the wind came through
As the Gnu came lumbering in.
And he ordered up a quart or two
Of his favorite Canuck beer,
And he cleared his throat in a mighty way,
And we all turned around to hear.

Well he eyed us all with his bloodshot eyes,
And he looked at each man in the crowd
And his arms were big as a Newfie tide
AN' his shoulders wide and proud.
So the boys listened up when he stood up tall
And he growled to the crowd that day,
"Boys you know it ain't but 80 posts
'Til we hit the next of Kay!"

Well, Little Hawk there, at the end of the bar
He'd had a pint or two.
And although he weighed less by a hundred pounds,
He hollered, "That ain't true!"
And there musta been something in his mind
Something dark and free of fear,
'Cuz he cocked his arm back and let fly
With a mug of American beer.

That mug was full and solid, too,
And it parted old Gnu's hair
ANd splintered aside of the hardwood bar
And the beer was ev'ywhere.
Now Gnu was not in a favoring mood
And he reached down to his side,
But the barkeep brought up an old ought-eight
ANd suggested they go outside.

So half of us shoved old Little Hawk
Out into that wintry night
And the other half followed on with Gnu
And the word was. "There's a fight!"
And the word went round, and the whole damn town
Seemed to roll up just about then
ANd the Bookman started taking odds
Hawk six, to Gnuser's ten.

Now Hawkster didn't much like those odds,
Or the look of old Gnu's fists
And he swore the whole thing was a big mistake
And that he was a pacifist.
But they wouldn't let him back out of the ring
'Cuz the crowd was up in their blood,
And this was the biggest thing they'd seen
Since the Mayor caught the crud.

SO he squinted his eyes and he held his breath
And he let his arms go limp
And he waved his hands and invoked the name
Of Chongo, the dreamscape Chimp!
And a cloud of smoke rose up from the ground
SOur and thick and fat,
ANd curdy soon Chongo was standing there
Wearing shoes, and a pork-pie hat.

Then the Manne of Bookes reached across his belt
And out a big Colt's hogleg drew
The cylinder holdin' six lead pills
A cure for what's ailin' you.

Then he said to the chimp, whether smoke or real
"You ain't innerruptin' this fight!
Ol' Gnuer's been chompin' at the LH bit
An' we're gonna see who's right.

I don't care for yer pork-pie hat
Or yer blank-an'-white saddle shoes
Cuz you look like a pimp from Prescott line
So back off, or sing the blues!"

Rap, I think Amos's idea was that I transformed myself INTO Chongo Chimp. There's a strong precedent for that, you know. Get with the script, Bookman! It is now Chongo versus Gnu, and I am no longer in the scene. I might add that Chongo has never lost a fistfight...though he has experienced one or two draws. I think he had a draw with Fat Freddy once before poor Freddy bought the farm.

Time to get serious here, and it demands a woman's touch


The boy stood on the burning deck
Whence all but he had fled;
The flame that lit the battle's wreck
Shone round him o'er the dead.

Yet beautiful and bright he stood,
As born to rule the storm;
A creature of heroic blood,
A proud, though child-like form.

The flames rolled on?he would not go
Without his Father's word;
That father, faint in death below,
His voice no longer heard.

He called aloud?'say, Father, say
If yet my task is done?'
He knew not that the chieftain lay
Unconscious of his son.

'Speak, father!' once again he cried,
'If I may yet be gone!'
And but the booming shots replied,
And fast the flames rolled on.

Upon his brow he felt their breath,
And in his waving hair,
And looked from that lone post of death
In still yet brave despair.

And shouted but once more aloud,
'My father! must I stay?'
While o'er him fast, through sail and shroud,
The wreathing fires made way.

They wrapt the ship in splendour wild,
They caught the flag on high,
And streamed above the gallant child,
Like banners in the sky.

There came a burst of thunder sound?
   The boy?oh! where was he?
Ask of the winds that far around
With fragments strewed the sea!?

With mast, and helm, and pennon fair,
That well had borne their part?
But the noblest thing which perished there
Was that young faithful heart.

Then Chongo smiled with the smile of an ape
Who's heard many a hollow boast
From many a man who thought he could tan
The hide of the ape from the coast
From the coast of Mid-West Africa
Where the mangos fall heavy and thick
And danger waits for the man who baits
A trenchcoat-clad primate dick

"You musta not heard," said Chongo Chimp,
"What happened to Gentleman Jim
When he drew on the ape from Ohio State
And he figgered that he could win.
He's six feet under now, y' know?
He's pushin' up daisies real fine
With a .45 five cal lodged in his brain
And the gun it came from was mine."

"If you wanna stay healthy
Don't try to get wealthy
By pickin' a fight with me
Or I'll pound yer head
So far down yer neck
You'll hafta stop talkin' to pee!"
And with that reply, Chongo pulled back his coat
In a manner both suave and grand
To reveal a tommy gun, cold steel blue
At the ready in his right hand.

I think they should deal with him like the Brits did to those Irishers: shove a hose and a funnel down his throat and pour in soup. Or they could do it a more modern way, one that Shame now would probably like more: insert the soup from the bottom up, so to speak.

Or they could just put a bag of moldy Tim's donuts within his reach -- the kind usually found the day before the dumpster is emptied.

Well, here's another new song from a couple of weeks ago. I really like it...and it IS my genuine prayer, that's for sure. I decided to give it a wacky Dylanesque title instead of the obvious one... ;-)

George Coventry's 118th Prayer                                        

Lord, give me a woman
who is honest, brave, and kind
Who will meet me on the level
And won't mess up my mind
Who respects the works of nature
And walks lightly on this world
Lord, give me a woman
Not a little girl

Lord, give me a woman
Who will take me as I am
And not try to reshape me
Into some imagined man
Who will take my hand as partner
As a lover and a friend
Who will stand equal beside me
When the tides of fortune bend

Lord, give me a woman
Who's complete within herself
Whose happiness does not depend
Upon somebody else
But rises freely as a spring
That flows out of her heart
And falls like healing rain
On every soul who shares her part

Lord, give me this woman
And to her I will be true
And give her back the same in kind
As I would do for you
But this is no demand
This is my prayer and my request
Lord, give me this woman
And I swear I'll do my best

If you're eating a sandwich that has been cut in half diagonally, do you bite the corners off first, or take a bite out of the hypotenuse?

It doesn't sound like a country song when I do it, Amos. Melody doesn't sound country. Chord sequence doesn't sound country. It sounds like a folksong. It has the general feel of various songs Bob Dylan has recorded very simply on records such as John Wesley Harding...just my guitar, voice, and harmonica.

You look at the lyrics and...yeah...it could be country. But it isn't.

I bite off the sharp corner on the left side first, then the sharp corner on the right side. Then I take however many bites are required along the hypotenuse to restore the sandwich to its original triangular shape, only smaller. I then repeat the process as many times as needed until the apex is the last bite to be eaten.

Yes, Mom, I know how to spell "OCD".

By the way, has it ever occurred to you that it's impossible to make just half a sandwich? You have to first make a whole sandwich and cut it in half. A sandwich made from two half-slices of bread is not a half-sandwich. It's a half-sized whole sandwich.

You can use one slice of bread, cut it in half, and use the halves to make a sandwich. Or you can cut it in quarters. Or eighths. Or sixteenths. Or thirty-seconds. Or sixty-fourths. Or one-hundred twenty-eighths. Or two-hundred fifty-sixths. It depends upon how hungry you are. Cutting it into two-hundred fifty-sixths would give you one hundred twenty-eight sandwiches, or enough for a wake.

SO he squinted his eyes and he held his breath
And he let his arms go limp
And he waved his hands and invoked the name
Of Chongo, the dreamscape Chimp!
And a cloud of smoke rose up from the ground
SOur and thick and fat,
ANd curdy soon Chongo was standing there
Wearing shoes, and a pork-pie hat.

Wal Gnu was game, and the Chimp the same
With a mean and simian look,
He flapped his ears, and Gnu just sneered,
ANd Chongo answered, "Oook!"
It mighta turned bad, for that flea-bit lad,
We wuz miles from the nearest cop,
And the was feeling awful mad,
When a silv'ry voice said "Stop!!"

Then into the ring stepped Stilly Sage
With an attitude learned from Mother,
ANd a bucket of beer hanging from one hand
And a mess of poems in the other.
And she said with aplomb, "No child of Mom
Ever spills the blood of another!
You are each her kin, and 'twould be a sin
TO mess with the flesh of a brother!"

Now this gave Gnu pause, 'cuz he honored law,
And wanted to do whut wuz right;
But the jungle brat would have none of that,
Fer he'd set his mind on a fight.
But Stilly was calm, with the strength of Mom
"Here's a drink to persuade you", she said.
And with never a fear, she just empited that beer
All over that dumb chimp's head!

Well, old Chongo howled, and cursed and whirled,
And he gave her the Evil Eye,
And "Look what you've done, you wicked girl!"
"I'm melting!", he did cry.
And 'twas truth to say, he was melting away
Turned to smoke, from toes to ear.
Drifting off through the air, leaving Hawkster there
In a stinking puddele of beer.

Well, the folks there just kinda wandered away
Having seen more than they could stand.
And Stilly stepped over to the dripping Hawk
And pulled him up by the hand.
And the only one who was less than pleased
Was the Bookman, Rapparree,
'Cause they made him give back the dough, ya see,
Since ole Still kiboshed the spree.

This story, now, it's getting old,
And it's brought us all pretty far.
And instead of standing here in the cold,
We should all go back to the bar.
Only sixty-four posts stand ahead in line
A small enough price to pay,
And we'll see the dawn rise above our Mom
At the peak of the next of Kay!!

Stuff to help Amos and others cope in society:

Redneck Manners

GENERAL:

1. Never take a beer to a job interview.
2. Always identify people in your yard before shooting at them.
3. It's considered tacky to take a cooler to church.
4. If you have to vacuum the bed, it is time to change the sheets.
5. Even if you're certain that you are included in the will, it is still rude to drive the U-Haul to the funeral home.

DINING OUT:

1. When decanting wine, make sure that you tilt the paper cup and pour slowly so as not to "bruise" the fruit of the vine.
2. If drinking directly from the bottle, always hold it with your hands.


ENTERTAINING IN YOUR HOME:
1. A centerpiece for the table should never be anything prepared by a taxidermist.
2. Do not allow the dog to eat at the table, no matter how good his manners are.

PERSONAL HYGIENE:

1. While ears need to be cleaned regularly, this is a job that should be done in private using one's OWN truck keys.
2. Even if you live alone, deodorant is not a waste of good money.
3. Use of proper toiletries can only delay bathing for a few days.
4. Dirt and grease under the fingernails is a social no-no, as they tend to detract from a woman's jewelry and alter the taste of finger foods.

DATING (Outside the Family):

1. Always offer to bait your date's hook, especially on the first date.
2. Be assertive. Let her know you're interested: "I've been wanting to go out with you since I read that stuff on the bathroom wall two years ago."
3. Establish with her parents what time she is expected back. Some will say 10:00 PM. Others might say "Monday." If the latter is the answer, it is the man's responsibility to get her to school on time.

THEATRE ETIQUETTE:

1. Crying babies should be taken to the lobby and picked up immediately after the movie has ended.
2. Refrain from talking to characters on the screen. Tests have proven they can't hear you.

WEDDINGS:

1. Livestock is usually a poor choice for a wedding gift.
2. Kissing the bride for more than 5 seconds may get you shot.
3. For the groom, at least, rent a tux. A leisure suit with a cummerbund and a clean bowling shirt can create a tacky appearance.
4. Though uncomfortable, say "yes" to socks and shoes for this special occasion.

DRIVING ETIQUETTE:

1. Dim your headlights for approaching vehicles, even if the gun is loaded and the deer is in sight.
2. When approaching a four-way stop, the vehicle with the largest tires does not always have the right of way.
3. Never tow another car using pantyhose and duct tape.
4. When sending your wife down the road with a gas can, it is impolite to ask her to bring back beer too.
5. Do not lay rubber while traveling in a funeral procession
