Chains (Co-Write with Magnolia High School Kids)

Chains - Nov 5 2018

(A co-write by Todd Burge & Magnolia High

guitar and theatre students New Martinsville WV– thanks to Artslink)

Do these chains of my past

Hold me from my future?

Or make me a bit stronger

And better able to break free?

So I’m looking for the weak

And as I hammer and I saw

I’ll focus on my weakness

I’ll learn something from my fall


These chains are bound to change me (x3)

But one day I’ll be free

These chains around my neck

They chime the ties that bind

They clang a sound of sorrow

Steal time that should be borrowed
Then returned back to me

My Happy Place

Written with the kids at the Parkersburg Wood County Library July 18 2018.

We chose to use "happy place", "old church" "books" and more as our jumping off point.

What a great day this was! Thanks to all at the library. TB visit

Evil Doughnut Depressed Taco Dance
by Todd Burge and Neale Elementary 5th Graders March 16 2018
Thank you to Mrs. Taylor and Artsbridge!!

Depressed Taco had a bad wrap
That was crunchy and corny
No one knew why he was down
As they never heard his story
They just stuffed his shell
With all you can readAt any ol’ Taco Bell (menu)
Depressed Taco had a bad wrap
That was crunchy and corny

And next door to the taco place?
A doughnut place.
Enter one doughnut named…
Evil Doughnut was known as evil
But I doughnut know quite why
f you could get to know him
You’d surely find him to be
A well rounded guy
He had no need to eat a taco
No taco had a need to eat he
So they joined forces
And as they shared their mutual stories of woe
Became friends, best friends
As, as it turned out, they both loved to dance
So they ended up making up a dance
They made up the next new dance craze!
They thought it would became a craze that is,
If they would dance it all night and day, like crazy.

They’d danceThe Evil Doughnut
Depressed Taco dance!
That’s all they needed
Just watch them smile
Just try and eat now, while they move so quickly
