Charles Winans

Charles Winans

Will always be a young man
Even though he says he’s getting old
He’d still shot gun you down if your
Stupid got to bein too pushy and bold

He’ll always be dressed in his leathers
Even though he mainly now wears over-alls
He’s faced down crazy Tex Watson
But also beautiful women have been left

Sweaty and enthralled

He’s got a tile mural down on The River
He’ll always be Charles El Wino and Chazz
He’ll always be that long distance rider
That can spin a tale of wonder and razz-a-ma-tazz


He’s been way down in the grit and grime
He’ll always be the flower child with a knife
A man who’s lived it mainly on his own terms
A man who’s walked it knowin it was his own life

He’s been dumped on cheated and lied about
He’s been turned on by so called friends
But he took it upon himself long long ago
That his word was good and good to the end

He loves his dogs and his woman
He even loves his ratty ol place
And I suppose he’d have been a lot more accepted
If he’d just not insisted so hard on

Integrity talent and grace

I came from Matt. I was posting under the name TeaToatler, but they banned me twice for being too outspoken about illegal immigrants. Nice blog you have here.

Neils that Matt discussion board has lost a lot of readers and activities due to their blatant censorship.

I think they got rid of legalcitizen, preach, ivy, Gyneth, Elmer Fudd and H. Dale Jennings as well as me.

I was just on their board; they only have 15 guests and zero members online.

Serves 'em right.

You summed up my big bubba's life and views so well, he will always be the best of the best, I hope someday I can be even half the person he was. I feel blessed to have had him for my big brother. Thanks for the great poem.

God Bless,

Stand up for the truth.


Try to have a little fun along the way.

Ham and Lima beans go a long way
To making it a better day

With love and respect
