I Am the Rope
by: Taz
I am the rope, you can’t push me.
Pull and I will follow,
Off a cliff, if that’s where you go.
Turn too many corners,
‘Round too many trees and rocks,
Friction will be so great 
We will both will have to stop.
If you have a job for me,
Anchor me with a knot.
Thread me through a pulley or two,
To your strength I will add a lot.
You can give me much weight, I can hold it,
Too much, two strands you will make.
Tension, tension, tension again,
And the bend it will not break.
Then if you must, you can cut me.
I will let the load go free.
Cut me, cut me and cut me again,
Soon I’ll be of no use, you will see.
I am the rope, you can’t push me.

                  FLOW
                                    life IS a river, you can’t fight it or deny it,
                               all we can do is flow with the flow, 
                               we can’t curse it or hate it for it will change nothing. 
                               we can never love it too much, just go and experience it..
                               as you experience yourself.

River Woman by Chicago Mike
Whitewater ain’t that cold ,
To run the rapids you’ve got to be bold,
And thank The Lord for a good toe hold, man.
And as for swimming in the drink,
In life you either swim or sink,
And the river can be unforgiving.
I fell in love on a one night stand,
It’s hard to resist a River Woman.
She was a rollicking Class Five,
She almost ate me alive,
But she had other plans.
We ran the rapids just fine,
But the river has got it’s own mind,
Risking your hide can be such a good time!
The night still feels young,
What fun it is, to be a tour-on
Gettin’ it on with a River Woman.
And I fell in love on a one night stand,
It’s hard to resist a River Woman, man!
And the whitewater ain’t that cold,
To run the rapids you’ve got to be bold,
And give thanks to The Good Lord.
