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like a tortoise into their shell withdrawn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.
