Hobos and Poets

“Hobos and Poets.” This was written in 1979. A battle against evil and help for the downtrodden. First third of poem.

So many have come and gone before

I don’t know who they were and what they dreamed to be

Some were hobos and poets, but most were real

Their lives rolled through an alley into the tragedy

Well the time has come once again

To cross the bridge to the vast unknown

And with all the will and power that I may have

It’s just a vision, I call my own

Fore tonight I’m going to change things

As only the strong can do

Fore life is so limited to waste

The way most people do

And with all the strength I have within me

My God, can you help me, just this one time

Yes, I know I’ve not been to you before

But that was when I was in my prime

Well, we fought till we had nothing

A darkened evil thought they had won the war

But instead we came back at them

And gave our pain some more

Fore when the dust had settled

The masses called us bold

Fore we left there with them standing, naked

Alone, and in the cold.

Thoughts to Ponder

Sometimes, when you can’t be positive it’s best to remain silent. RJ Intindola – 1981

When you have a choice to criticize or praise another person, I recommend praise. RJ Intindola – 1981

You should always let go of the things that hurt you but at the same time learn from them. RJ Intindola – 1977

Thoughts to ponder

Failure is simply pages of excuses. RJ Intindola – 1983


Remember, people want you to fail. It makes them feel better about themselves to see others fail. So disappoint them by succeeding. R.J. Intindola–1981


Thoughts to Ponder

With all due respect to my many Facebook friends, please accept these as my personal opinions only and in no way is intended to condemn any individual or a position a person may possess. For the next six months, I will be mainly concentrating on attempting to get as many Democratic candidates elected as possible. Therefore, please refrain from sending me requests to play, “Solitaire in Wonderland,” “Worlds of wonder,” “Buggle,” “Lucky slots,” “Puzzle charms,” “Birthdays,” “Diamond dash,” “Press your luck,” “Casino star,” “Criminal case,” “Candy crush,” “Farm heroes saga,” and finally (thank God), “Coasterville.” None of these games interest me and until such time as Facebook creates the “NSA Sex Poker crush press in wonderland,” I will never be a participant. This most humble request of mine will save at least 50 to 60 of you time each month by removing me from the playlist.

Furthermore, I have never watched a movie 100 times and therefore cannot participate in your requests to name such a movie. However, if I live to be 105, I could probably make the list and will tell you in advance, it’s the Wizard of Oz. For the next 50 years, you can relax.

Lastly, and this irks me the most. If you are not going to like my page, don’t ask me to like yours. I typically agree to every friends request to like their page but check back one week later to see if they have liked mine. Unfortunately, I end up removing my like approximately 70% of the time.

So if you’re wondering exactly what interest I have and what I stand for, I’ll offer you the following:

Protecting the rights of women to make their own choices and decisions regarding their sexuality and personal beliefs. And equal pay for equal work.

Protecting the rights of people to vote against the anarchists who hide behind the fist of religion and godliness.

Ensuring that no one dies because they do not have access to proper health care.

Protecting the rights of minorities

Ensuring our veterans have proper health care and are provided jobs upon their return. After all, many of the jobs driven overseas occurred as a result of federal government policies and therefore the federal government owes the people something in return. Sorry for the additional commentary.

Creating jobs

PS: in 1980, I wrote in a publication about the four experiences you can never get back. A few years later I added a fifth experience. And in 1996 two others were added. I have listed these for you below. Please be aware that my name is not Anonymous.

Seven experiences you can never get back.

1. Words after they have been spoken.

2. A stone after it has been thrown.

3. A moment or occasion after it has passed.

4. A person after they have passed.

5. Time once it has passed.

6. Betrayal after it has transpired.

7. A lie after it has been spoken.

Thoughts to Ponder- 3-29 2014

Saving this democracy may mean the loss of so-called friends, being left out and often standing alone. All of these will seem meaningless when you no longer have a voice in who rules. 2013

Instead of searching for the faults in the lives of others, fix yours first. 1981
Any attempt or movement to thwart, deny, inhibit or limit the right of citizens to vote is Un-american, and thus led by anarchists. 2013
Some people constantly create storms in their and the lives of others, only to become the martyr when the rain starts. 1981

Thoughts to Ponder- II

    Talking to a friend: swore she’d never lied: I asked—“Have you ever clicked on the accept terms and conditions button without reading them?”  RJ Intindola-  2009

If you’re alone, I’ll be your shadow. If you want to cry, I’ll be your shoulder. If you want a hug, I’ll be your pillow. If you feel pain, I’ll be your aspirin. If you are unhappy, I’ll be your smile. If you are ill, I’ll be your prescription. But anytime you need a friend, I’ll just be me. RJ Intindola – 1972


Thoughts To Ponder

A lie doesn’t become truth, wrong doesn’t become right and evil doesn’t become good, just because a majority has accepted it as fact. 2004a0002

If you say to someone, “you do that all the time,” you need to remember and recite at least one other time they did that. 1997

When times are good in your life, your friends get to know who you are. When times are down or bad in your life, you get to know who your friends are. 1978

I rather look back at my life saying “I can’t believe I did that” instead of saying, “I wish I did that.”



This expression was created and expanded over numerous years. And possibly it will continue to be expanded. You will notice that the Internet has altered how the expression is written.


There are two experiences that you can never get back.

First, words after they had been uttered.

And second, a stone after it has been thrown. 1974


I added a third experience in 1980 after personal dramatic circumstances in my life. As a result, the expression was changed as written below.

There are three experiences that you can never get back.


One, words after they have been spoken.

Two, a stone after it has been thrown.

Three, a moment or occasion after it has passed


In January 1984, my father died and I added a fourth item which was stated in a different manner to my brother. Later that same year, I added a fifth experience, again related to the death of my father.


There are five experiences that you can never get back.


One, words after they have been spoken.

Two, a stone after it has been thrown.

Three, a moment or occasion after it has passed.

Four, a person after they have passed.

Five, time once it has passed.


The final two experiences were added twelve years later in 1996. They are rarely included in the various depictions I have seen on the Internet. The only logic I can conclude for their lack of inclusion, is that I stopped posting to inspirational and poetic websites. Thus, the final or I should say current construction is noted below.


There are seven experiences that you can never get back.


One, words after they have been spoken.

Two, a stone after it has been thrown.

Three, a moment or occasion after it has passed.

Four, a person after they have passed.

Five, time once it has passed.

Six, betrayal after it has transpired.

Seven, a lie after it has been spoken.
