I’m History . . . . . . (call me witty)

.

“Histories make men wise;

poets, witty;

the mathematics, subtle;

natural philosophy, deep;

logic and rhetoric,

able to contend.”

,

― Francis Bacon

story

repeated orally

twice told tales

biased towards the winner

history

.

Haiku:

.

calm before the storm

dark clouds crowd the horizon

birds seek still refuge

.

Poem:

.

the poet wanted to get serious
the poem wanted to have fun
the poet said I’m curious
the poem said let’s hit and run

people are amusing
do animals  really laugh
individuals are really confusing
could a pig pass a polygraph

most young like to play games
most old become slow and cantankerous
most living things enjoy riding trains
and when the ride stops, all are rancorous

to have real fun let’s become a bully
politicians are a real easy target
gross prevarication practiced anally
all those promises they soon forget

let’s not exclude the actors and actresses
money and fame makes them real experts
what do they know about checks and balances
their ranks filled with just too many perverts

a high shot at the talking heads and fake news
can’t distinguish between reporting and opinion
huge egos protecting politically correct views
Wall Street and big pharma buying their minion

glad we had this time to have some fun
aren’t you glad we didn’t pick on you
hopefully fun will never ever be done
so here’s to looking for you in the zoo

Who Most Ignores

.

“Most people ignore

most poetry

because poetry

ignores most people.”

.

~ Adrian Mitchell

.

.

Elfje: (Cinquain)

.

ignored

abandoned soul

misplaced spiritual essence

nowhere to be found

neglected

.

Haiku:

.

welcomed happiness

brilliant flora and fauna

creation evolves

.

Poem:

.

today is this moment
as time marches on
freedom is enjoyment
not ever being a pawn

just enjoying today
happy is the attitude
ignoring the sad gray
love we gladly exude

surrounded by nature
meditating in awe
no one is a stranger
obeying God’s law

gratitude for the blessing
on bended knees we pray
avoiding the obsessing
keeping the devil at bay

being the kind person
a Higher Power wants me to be
just for today
