Dial-up

‘Nuff said.

Camping Coffee

This follows the same vein as “The Smoke, It Doth Get in Mine Eyes”. It is also inspired by real life camping experience. I’m thinking particularily of my Algonquin canoe trip with Jason and Pete (both non coffee drinkers). I’d taken lots of instant coffee along and lots of sugar but somehow the stuff ended ...

Here’s to You Girls

In today’s society of the fashion of less I respect the girls who fight the flow and wear modest attire. This poem is for them. By Chris M. Sissons Here’s to the girls who walk for milesThrough rows and rows of clothing aislesWhose eyes pick out the modest styles. They don’t dress by what’s called ...

We’re Canadian, Eh

My sis and I wrote this for Talent Night at the 2005 OCRC young people conference hosted by the Lynden YP out in Washington, US. We rapped it to a little hip hop track I built. I was mighty nervous and shaking and didn’t do nearly as well as I’d hoped but it was still ...

Words That Healed the Hurt Slightly

Based on Jer. 6:14-20 This song was inspired by a sermon I heard at the Sunday service we attended in La’Mable, during our Rock Sands cottage week. I’ve got chunks of its tune in mind. The music and vocal style would be similar to Project 86 or Pillar – a mixture of singing and shouting ...

The Smoke, It Doth Get in Mine Eyes

OK, so this little rhyme came to mind while I was walking in the concrete jungle of downtown Newcastle, but it expresses the frustration I’ve experienced while struggling to kindle a fire in the real wilderness on several occasions. I thought I might as well post it here. The Smoke, It Doth Get in Mine ...

For All You Ladybugs

It isn’t that I hate ladybugs – they are actually among my favouite bugs. The red shells with white dots have always impressed me as stylish yet rugged. They are fairly helpful in consuming evil little bugs too. When it comes to their very real impact on my daily life, however, my fondness dwindles quickly. ...

The New CD Blues

OK, so you’re on your way home from the local Christian bookstore with your new CD. As you turn onto your road you steal a glance at that package of joy sitting in the passenger seat. “I’m gonna luv takin’ you for a spin,” you whisper under your breath. The moment you get indoors you ...

Shout Out

This is actually a rap and not really completed yet. But here’s what I’ve got so far. By Chris M. Sissons Sit down, turn up the T.V, whatcha see?A grim view of the state of this country?Morality isn’t easy to see, or spotin a sitcom that’s like 90 percent rot.And who thought we’d be getting ...

Marathon

I’ve been inspired a few times to write a poem showing the fighting race of the Christian walk. This poem didn’t really fulfill that inspiration completely but it does give a bit of an idea of our struggle. By Chris M. Sissons It’s not an easy thing to bea traveller on the side that’s freeand ...
