Why Islam?
di Pio Paul DeBonis · Venerdė 14 settembre 2012
Why Islam? Why do you preach hate why do you want all the world to become Islamic Your Quaran spews nothing but Islamic domination and hate   why Islam ? do you want to treat woman as slaves keep them from being educated treat them as slaves   Why Islam? Do you fear democracy fear free thought fear progress   Why Islam? Why Islam? your cruelty and ignorance spell out your doomed to failure   Your fall will be a triumph of the greater good of hunanity may you all visit Muhammed in hell or any other filthy place he rests   Long live freedom

Sunday with my father
di Pio Paul DeBonis · Venerdė 20 aprile 2012
Sunday was the day I would spend with my father We would awaken and enjoy breakfast cooked by my mother It was for our large family and not a bother Mother toiled with pots and pans Smell of fresh meat sauce and roasted peppers would fill the air We had our breakfast and would go out and stroll the neighborhood Our area was all Italian and we had all Italian stores We would walk and smell the aroma of all the delicacies We would go to the park where the men played Boci and cards  for money We loved to watch the action and the colorful characters They would laugh one minute or curse each other the next This was my day with my Dad...A day of treats Ice Cream,Candy,Soda...he was very generous When the bells in St Martin Church rang for 12 noon Time for us to go home and enjoy our Sunday meal Every Sunday we would go to Artuso Pastry and buy Pastries and Cookies My father believed Sunday must be grander than any other day of the week If you ate like any other day you were disrespecting Gods Day He was so right....God  must br respected on his day I wish I could have the chance to spend another Sunday with my father
 
Manifestation
di Pio Paul DeBonis · Mercoledė 7 dicembre 2011
I awoke rubbing my eyes head turned up facing the sky energy spent and a hint of a scent   I smell lilac scratches on my back warm loins spent from the groins   was it real  what was the deal succubus  or nymph leaving me limp   strange sensations ravaged by a manifestation will it strike again who can tell where and when   ravaged savagely by something of mystery it is not very wise to answer unknown cries   It may be a Manifestation
 
Shadow
di Pio Paul DeBonis · Martedė 25 ottobre 2011
Bright sunshine brings long shadows some are long but only in time some have always been there like the shadow of death   death has no mercy but casts a long shadow it follows you from the day you are born forever chasing its prey do not slow down or it may overtake you   the dead have shadows too they lurk in dark places homes,graveyards,churches and battlefields most people fear the shadows...Do you????   the shadow is fearsome to some others search for shadows in dark places don't fear the shadows they are just traces   traces of love,life,trajedy shadows of battles won and lost I read shaows so I can learn shadows can reveal so much
 
I guess I can't anymore
di Pio Paul DeBonis · Sabato 2 luglio 2011
I guess I can't anymore walk too slow perhaps stop too often no fun to hang with   Who knows I guess I can't anymore   traveled here and there walked in hail,snow and sleet can't go to Busch Gardens for a feast to eat   I don't know I guess I can't anymore   there must be a time to shoot lame horses this horse can't run this horse can't work just aim...no one can blame you   I don't knw I guess I can't anymore   it is more humane to end misery than to replace the horse and just let him limp along send him to where he belongs   I don't know  I guess I can't anymore   Make room for the lame horse I think he will run till he drops bet on him I guess he can

The Serpent
di Pio Paul DeBonis · Venerdė 24 giugno 2011
The bible tells us of a serpent He is quite a sweet talker Talked Eve into taking the apple Apple from the tree of Wisdom   Who was this Serpent? Was it a snake? Was it a Dragon? Or perhaps it was a Dinosaur?   Think about it A serpent could be a Dinosaur A Dinosaur talks eve into eating an apple Let your mind grasp that thought   Suppose Eve represents Mankind The Apple symbolic of great evil thoughts The Dinosaur the great evil perhaps The Bible teaches us lessons doesn't it   Mankind is Innocent until the day they get knowledge Knowledge from the Apple that bears evil thoughts The evil thoughts from the great evil...Dinosaurs When man learns of Dinosaurs the evil is revealed   Man asks questions Where did Dinosaurs come from no where in the Bible are T-Rex's Why are there things before Eve...Adam...Serpent   Just food for thought evil thoughts some believe so But I call it thinking outside the box   Try it sometime

Paradise Found
di Pio Paul DeBonis Venerdė 10 giugno 2011
 As we grow older and closer to our demise I think we become more much more wise we search for the truth from a world of lies It is difficult to see through these old eyes We search for love and paradise the truth gripping our mind like a vyse Friends,family and love so rare we may have it all and even a tear we seek paradise like the Garden of Eden We lose sight of the wonders we have been given earth,sky,wind,rain,sun and moon and the warmth of loves tender tune We look for Paradise near and far We think that it may be near the furthest star Turn around and you will see Paradise is here for you and me

Fifty -three Just a number to me A year older Probably not any wiser I may not be well but I sure lived life well I ate ate and drank My stomach like a bottomless tank I loved the bread Cake went to my head I may not have health I did live a life of wealth Rich in wine ,woman and song Rich in friends who came along A wealth of family and love And perhaps an Angel up above Fifty-three is just a number to me I'll take it

GUARDA INTORNO A TE

Oh,rosso,bianco,e blu Guarda intorno a te La gente ha perdutto le case Evangelisti pieni di Super Residenze Nero,bianco....giallo....rosso Tutti i colori incutono Spavento Il civile non riposa...rebellione per le strade La guerra di razza e' cominciata dall' elite. Una volta tanti alti saluti I grandi del mondo Hanno firmato cosi In ogni dove tu guardi Una nazione sotto Dio Adesso e' solo zolla Tre allegre per il rosso,il bianco e blu Dio ti ama...c'era una volta la verita.
 
SPERANZA
di Pio Paul DeBonis · Giovedė 28 maggio 2009
La speranza sorge eterna Adesso,questa e' una risata Cosa la speranza porta? Ridere della speranza E' come perdere la vita Perdere l'anima Perdere la mente. La povera speranza Sicuro fa qualcosa di bouno La poverta cresce in America Tu non puoi mangiare speranza La speranza porta lacrime Le lacrime la delusione Le lacrime della solitudine Chi ha bisogno di lacrime Chi ha bisogno di speranza? Non io.

La terra della Liberta ha le Lacrime agli occhi Ha le tasche piene Politici Bugiardi Mercati escrementi come razzi nordcoreani Il dollaro vale meno di un dollaro Auto che non si vendono Vedi tu come urlare La fine e' vicina tu non puoi parlare Le nostre coste non sono benvenute Noi costruiamo recinti per cacciare il messicano Noi combattiamo guerre aiutati da nessuno Volonta' vecchia gloria ogni attesa di nouva giustizia Signora Liberta' ti prego asciuga i tuoi occhi.

Time
di Pio Paul DeBonis · Venerdė 14 gennaio 2011
as I sit and stare into space the mind wanders to another place it stares beyond the walls it travels beyond this home far into the stars beyond this galaxy the clock ticks the second hand moves tick tick tick the mind reaches trying to grasp the universe it filters and sends synapsis telling the body to follow into the great beyond the lungs draw a last breath the voyage is on in quest for the truth and the clock is silent

2012 don't make me laugh Mayan doomsday prophecy you have a better chance of winning the lottery   everyone loves a good tale of destruction the 500 Mormonns waiting for the resurrection Christians...Moslems  right on line behind them   Book of Revelations would read better on acid just the ramblings of a hermit hating the Romans and living in a cave   Let us not forget Nostradamus there is a man who knew how to damn us disgruntled Frenchman who has fooled us for decades we should see through his charades   I'm tired of hearing about 2012 the would could end tomorrow or a week fom today so let's put the 2012 nonsense away
