Wisdom of Humanity

.

“…the collective

wisdom of humanity

[is] enshrined

in its poetry.”

.

~ Robyn Donald

.

Elfje:

.

jump

spin around

À la quatrième

do the boogie woogie

dance

.

Haiku:

.

clearing winter’s mess

careful to save the new growth

spring is but a dream

.

Poem:

.

where is the fine line of sanity
or is insane not a place at all
not me, invisibly cloaked in vanity
delusions acerbated by alcohol

did I drink too much and became crazy
or was I crazy and I drank too much
could have done different but was too lazy
should have but I really needed a crutch

would have but I ignored my mother
make amends, clear the wreckage
learn to rely upon a Higher Power
be prepared to carry the recovery message

a simple program for complicated people
how we were restored to sane thinking

ME and the Boss

Expand Your Senses

.

“If my poetry aims

to achieve anything,

it’s to deliver people

from the limited ways

in which they see and feel.”

.

― Jim Morrison

.

Elfje:

.

opinion

tunnel vision

one way street

no rhyme no reason

majority

.

Haiku:

.

eyes closed aroma

spring repopulates the earth

nature seduces

.

Poem:

.

he clings tenaciously to his comfort zone
he adamantly denies that he is a clone

he statistically fits into the status quo
his wife has replaced him with a rubber dildo

the kids don’t introduce him to their friends
he spends his days making unnecessary amends

the local bowling league failed to re-invite him
his insurance man told him to not go near the gym

the ultimate fanatic he paints his face in the home team colors
people in the  office will only comment, “he knows his numbers”

time is making him old and he is totally oblivious
like too many lives the ending is sadly piteous

if only he could have been persuaded to read a poem

 

ME  and the Boss
