is long,



is fleeting.”


― Henry Wadsworth Longfellow






time fly’s

making sweet music

when you’re having fun





air conditioning

mechanical invention

not the real season




did Frost care about his legacy
as an American icon in his own time
was Poe ever concerned about his identity
as an editor he offended very many

the poet laments man’s frailty
founded on historic and trending times
lemmings dressed as soldiers bravely
lying on hearts and minds weighty

most never notice that life goes on
consumed with ego and pressing demands
not the sharpest in the box of crayon
like a tortoise into their shell withdrawn

there are two sides to every coin
to be politically correct, bi-polar
the mind has it’s own life to purloin
dramatic pretenses trying to be soigne

is it a discussion or an argument
will there be a winner or a loser
males driven by the domestic termagant
or is she just the trophies ornament

the diplomatic never gives in to either side
inspiration for the next installment
is there a soul who has never lied
it is not our wants that life will provide

forget the legacy, let us just play pretend
lose the identity and be the chameleon
who cares, life is nothing but a tiny godsend
enjoy this chance, be a loving dividend.
