HSR LUXURY

SHARE THIS AT THE SPEED OF A BULLET TRAIN IF YOU CAN!

All of us here at FRIENDS OF HSR want to wish all our friends, fans, followers and families a very happy LABOR DAY.  We look forward to the day when many are laboring on the construction of a high speed rail track and this tremendously innovative and cost effective form of transportation is hurtling Americans across the continent 200 miles per hour and in the sheer comfort you see herewith.

That day is coming, rest assured!

Meanwhile, visit us on Facebook and join in on the weekly discussions and fun posts we enjoy so much in presenting to all our fellow Americans who deserve to learn about the tremendous benefits of high speed rail and the thrill and economy of riding a magnificent bullet train!  Here: https://www.facebook.com/FastTrainsBook/?fref=ts

DESERT LOYALTY

For the holiday season and the coming of hopefully a better year, this poem is dedicated to all my dearest friends and fellow true believers.

Patrick The Poet

 

DESERT LOYALTY
 
Once you found yourself alone…far from trust and paradise,
Bereft of all those you gave every ounce of loyalty to.
Though now these sands are harsh and hot–they are as cold as ice!
And rife with the rage of a world that has turned against you.
Yet time after time another promise has come along…
Heard from the lips of ardent friendships that swore to be true.
Instead, you were left to die…like silence murders a song,
Or as wind does over the sand…to leave the desert askew!
 
Then here upon this barren plain you happened upon me.
To find and save my life when I was at death’s very brink.
Still, though I humbly thanked you and swore eternal loyalty,
You no more believed me…though I wrote it in mortal ink!
Now over time and other lifetimes the desert has fed
More betrayal to you, and too much disdain of me, I think.
Still, I have waited years to be thirsting and almost dead…
Ah, to find water…and give you the first and only drink!

 

I NEED WATER!

If you’re half asleep at this moment, this joke will jolt you awake, I promise!

Patrick The Poet

 

I need water !

A traveler was stumbling through the desert, desperate for water, when he saw something far off in the distance.

Hoping to find water, he walked towards the image, only to find a little old peddler sitting at a card table with a bunch of neckties laid out.

The parched wanderer asked, “Please, I’m dying of thirst, can I have some water?”

The man replied, “I don’t have any water, but why don’t you buy a tie? Here’s one that goes nicely with your clothes.”

The desperate man shouted, “I don’t want a tie, you idiot, I need water!”

“OK, don’t buy a tie. But to show you what a nice guy I am, I’ll tell you that over that hill there, about 5 miles, is a nice restaurant. Walk that way, and they’ll give you all the water you want.”

The man thanked the peddler and walked away towards the hill and eventually disappeared out of sight. Three hours later he returned.

The man at the card table said, “I told you, about 5 miles over that hill. Couldn’t you find it?”

“I found it all right. But they wouldn’t let me in without a tie!”
