I Didn't Remember To Forget  by Geoff Weilert  

Many times my mind is filled

Of things I wish I could recall,
But I forgot to remember.

I Really Count  by Geoff Weilert    

Iíve lived half of my life and there is much that Iíve seen
I still have most of my hair but lost a lot of my sheen.
Iím not be the most important person, but Iíd like to announce
That Iím the type of person, that really counts.
Now donít think itís a boast. Itís not a matter of degree.
Itís just a fact I toss out, that Iíd like you to see.
I donít do heroic deeds but you donít need commiserate,
Because everything I do, I canít help but enumerate.

Nobody Wrote This  by Geoff Weilert   Speaker broadcasting Showcased Talent     

When I was young, I was told to work hard,
And to make someone of my self,
Be the best, become a champ
And put trophies on my shelf.

To have my star shine above the rest.
But now I find, Ďtwas all in vain,
Because, to be somebody, is not the best.

Pet-antic  by Ray Malus   Speaker broadcasting Showcased Talent   

My dour cat springs on my bed without an invitation.
She stalks across my knees with not a hint of hesitation.
She tromps upon my stomach without any consultation,
And sets her haunches on my chest with smug determination.
Her eyes are fixed on distant things with dreamy expectation.
She squints and peers into the void in solemn contemplation.
Imagining utopia ó or humankindís damnation?
Or maybe seeing phantom mice for feral depravation.

And if it chooses to explode
Useless facts are scattered everywhere.
