The Most Powerful Drug

 

I am, by calling,

a dealer in words;

and words are,

of course,

the most powerful drug

used by mankind.”

drug

chemical influence

brain neurons interrupted

abnormal escape from reality

reading the fake news

politics

opinions galore

Poem:

April showers brings May pollen
the early worm evades the robin
nature both gives and takes away
man gifted by a beautiful bouquet

can we ruin it all with plastic pollution
are there consequences for fooling evolution
when man has expired there will be no more time
there will be no winners to punish the crime

hopefully we’ll find where the soul resides
nature will overcome those pesticides
the philosophers will discover what it is
everyone will know all of the answers to all of the quizzes

chortle, love, do the next right thing
pray, prepare to welcome another spring

Poets Of Old

.

“Still must the poet as of old,
In barren attic bleak and cold,
Starve, freeze, and fashion verses to
Such things as flowers and song and you;

Still as of old his being give
In Beauty’s name, while she may live,
Beauty that may not die as long
As there are flowers and you and song.”

.

― Edna St. Vincent Millay

bullies everywhere

much anger

selfish and needy

Poem:

.

wildflowers blooming beside the road
beauty by Mother Nature sowed
bird and bee feast on flower and seed
arrogant man coined the word weed

colors to compete with the perfect rainbow
a verdant lush covers the yonder meadow
how much we miss speeding along at sixty
you failed to see the wave of the garden pixie

a good sneeze clears the nose of the pollen
mud puddles were made for children to play in
sadly all of the eyes are glued to the video screen
selfies galore as they practice being the drama queen

if they only knew that evolution will always win
that wildflowers and weeds survived the original sin
