Fifth of May 2020

It’s Cinco de Mayo,
Remember the margarita,
Or, is it the Alamo*?
Let’s do the cha cha cha,
Then serve the mojito
And tortilla chips and salsa;
Soon, we can go
And break open the piñata,
Via Zoom, Skype, or Zoho.

You’re Never Alone on Christmas

Words, Music, and Video by Cabana Boy Q ©2019

C
Christmas is almost here
It’s a time for all to rejoice
But why O Lord is my heart so heavy
For someone we love was taken by choice
For you took him and we ask why the good dies young
Just as we finally begin to understand what we have
Then suddenly it disappears from our sight, our grasp
And we find ourselves alone, miserably sad

Am
But we turn to the sky, we glance upon that shining star
We begin to feel that love and we start to remember
As the birth of Christ is now upon us
We are never alone, we will always be together

F
It’s Christmas now and its forevermore
That darkness in us has brightened again
For the souls we thought we had lost
Have always been here, our loved ones and friends

G
Christmas is not a time for spite or anger
It’s not to question and walk astray
Because Love has never truly left us
For we will all join them someday

So
C
Live your life,
Merry Christmas to all,
And let your soul shine bright

In Memoriam Matthew E. MacGregor
