 Wodke Ruminates on Words

Brilliance and depth aside, harvested from our other blog, you will find the ruminations of Wodke Hawkinson on certain words. This is what results, apparently, from standing on a rock near the ocean with hands in pockets and staring at the sunset.

Forget Me Not

Long forgotten
Forgotten places
Forgotten ones
Forgotten lore
Long since forgotten

Gone but not forgotten
Forgotten faces
Forgotten heroes
Forgotten kisses
The forgotten

Not soon forgotten
Forgotten money
Forgotten youth
Unforgotten
You will never be forgotten

BACK

Back to the future
back in time,
back again,
back to one,
back forty,
back in the game,
back slide,
back and forth,
back in black. 

Back pack,
back door,
back yard,
back off,
back up,
back bend,
back flip,
back out,
back for more. 

Back to back,
back talk,
back hand,
back slap,
back arm,
back kick,
back side,
back down,
back away.

Come

Come all ye faithful,
come around,
come quick,
come together,
come on,
come out.

Come a little bit closer,
come clean,
come play,
come what may,
come along,
come again. 

Come fly away,
come here,
come in,
come in handy,
come undone,
come sail away.

Come back,
come up with,
come hither,
come home,
come dance with me,
come Monday.

-Wodke Hawkinson

Let

Let’s start at the beginning
Let’s see
Let’s be friends
Let bygones be bygones
Let’s talk
Let’s eat
Let it burn
Let me out

 Let the party begin
Let’s make a deal
Let it rip
Let it fly
Let loose
Let’s dance
Let the good times roll
Let go 

Let it lie
Let them eat cake
Let me be frank
Let sleeping dogs lie
Let it ride
Let’s move on
Let’s face the facts
Let me be clear 

Let’s face it
Let it snow
Let freedom ring
Let up
Let it go
Let it be
Let me in
Let there be light

-Wodke Hawkinson

Give

Give Thanks

Give out
Give up
Give way
Give in
Give a damn

Give wisely
Give generously
Give me a chance
Give them a piece of your mind
Give it your all

Give blood
Give and take
Give over
Give away
Give more 

Give back
Give it here
Give a hand
Give me liberty or give me death
Give your heart

Give peace a chance

 By

By golly,
by gum,
by design,
and by George.

By the seat
of my pants,
by the rules,
by god.

By and by,
and by far,
by the time
I get to Phoenix.

By hook or
by crook,
by gosh,
by force.

By diggidy dog,
by the book,
and by the light
of the silvery moon.

By large, by
sea or by air,
by now,
and by then.

By the way,
by the hair on
my chinny chin
chin, by large.

By choice,
by referrel,
by myself,
by the end!

-Wodke Hawkinson
