Uniting

.

“Poetry is

the art of

uniting pleasure

with truth.”

.

― Samuel Johnson

.

.

Elfje:

.

noise

vulgar speech

display of ignorance

oaths among the stupid

swearing

.

Haiku:

.

God lives forever

time measured by the light year

man’s life but a blink

.

 

Poem:

.

can I tell a lie

grandiose ego I

makes me want to cry

the morals which I defy

 

Mother taught me right

the church made  me fear sin

the commandments I thought were trite

it was always more important to win

 

t’was instant gratification that I sought

never dreamt of the consequence

tried every sin that could be bought

the highs were far above common sense

 

struck sober by a God incident

was almost restored to sane thinking

the addiction was false imprisonment

controlled by habits that were stinking

 

to thine own self be true

a better way of living

a Higher Power to see me through

enjoying a life I thought was missing

 

I cannot tell a lie

I no longer want to be that bad guy

Emotional Concept

.

“One writes a poem

when one is so taken up

by an emotional concept

that one is unable

to remain silent.”

.

― Stephen Dobyns

.

.

Elfje:

.

feelings

a thought

from the heart

that energizes the body

emotions

.

Haiku:

.

ashes to ashes

the seasons recycle good

nature never wastes

.

Poem:

.

Sorry doesn’t cut it
mistakes can be avoided
thinking is not where you sit
excuses among the disappointed

Sorry has a meaning that is right
wretched, poor, useless, or pitiful
the drunken bum was a sorry sight
for many souls this status is typical

Sorry then becomes a choice
to feel regret for someones troubles
or to seek a way out of your patois
excuses  to avoid your selfish struggles

Sorry is to be used when you mean it
not spoken to cover your lies
don’t use the word as a habit
to use other words would be wise

and when all else fails
“excuse me” will usually do

.

Note: When someone tells me they are sorry,

I usually agree with them, using the right definition.
