                Failure, to perform one’s task successfully, …  regardless of what task, one is attempting to perform, …  is the penalty, JEHOVAH GOD ALMIGHTY punishes a person with, …  as an adverse consequence, of NOT HAVING TRIED HARD ENOUGH, …

For example:

            Falling off a stepladder, trying to unscrew a lightbulb from the ceiling.

               (A Spirit, who looked like a brilliant American Engineer and Entrepreneur, said this to me, …  at the time, surveying a large valley surrounded by hills, …  containing an expansive dynasty, … a large enterprise building project, …  the Angel showing me that unless a person tries his very best, …  being careful not to make EVEN ONE LITTLE MISTAKE, …  that GOD punishes that person with failure, for not having tried quite hard enough, …  and for not having taken the time necessary, to think it out properly.)

(   . . .   Teacher, Teacher, …  I Know Why!!!   . . .   )

– 1952 –

              (The setting, is a high school teacher, …  standing beside his desk and wastebasket, in front of a blackboard, speaking to his HOMEROOM CLASS):


“For $60,000, class, …

               Why did the Apache, …  riding on a white horse, …  sit on an Indian Blanket?”

(Suddenly, there is a great show of hands, in a class of 30.)

The Teacher, selects Robert.


               “Oh Sir!  Sir!  I know why!!!”


               “And WHY is that, Robert?”


               “Because there’s a brown, SHIT-STREAK on the white horse’s back.”

(The Teacher, chastises Robert severely, throwing Robert

out of the classroom,

through an open doorway, out into the hallway,

and off to the Principal’s Office.)

Teacher (composing himself):

“There’ll be NONE OF THAT NOW.

                 Seriously though class:

                                 For $60,000:

                                Who can tell me, the correct answer to the question?”

(In an instant, …  there’s another great show of hands.)

The Teacher, selects Stanley.


               “The reason WHY, …  the Apache riding on a white horse, …  is sitting on an Indian Blanket, …  is because, …  NORTH AMERICAN INDIANS are not sophisticated enough, …  nor are they highly educated enough in the 16th, 17th, and 18th centuries, …  to know how to manufacture WESTERN SADDLES, …  like PONY SOLDIERS and COWBOYS, …  nor do they know how to hold onto the horn of a saddle when they ride, …  the way WE do, …

but, …

                 Indians, …  after looking at COWBOYS and PONY SOLDIERS, …  watching how they ride,

YOU know:  Monkey SEE, …  Monkey DO? …

Well, …

                the Apaches, thought they should be sitting on something too, …  and so they try not to slip off the horse, …  getting the horse-blanket entangled between the horse’s legs, …  and their own legs as well.”


                “CORRECT, Stanley!

                                    100% !!!

                                                       Well done!!!”

(And then the Teacher, …  tears off, a little piece of paper from his pad, …

and hands it to Stanley, …

with the words printed on it, in lead pencil):

“I-Owe-yoU $60,000 !!!”

I am an amateur hobbyist songwriter, merely performing songs for the joy of it. I'm not very experienced. I'm not very good. I started out in guitar, ... but I've fallen in love with the keyboard, ... and so I've switched. Mostly my songs are CLASSICAL ROMANTIC MEDIEVAL WESTERN, ... and in a realm of their own.
