Bring Some Of It With You

“You will

find poetry

unless you bring

some of it with you.”

freezing rain breaks boughs

nature’s attempt to prune limbs

springs healthy new growth

Poem:

.

once there were a happy people
living and loving very peaceful
every house had a heaven pointing steeple
children played and laughed gleeful

could there ever again be such a place
acceptance did not depend on your face
everyone respected each others space
there was only one human race

can politicians dictate such a thing
do miracles arrive on an angel’s wing
faithful marriages signed with a ring
harmonies that all are able to sing

will geneticist eventually eliminate the ego
no more testing with a placebo
no man made boundaries, you are free to go
peace and love the only credo

let us all raise a grateful prayer
work together to clear the air
eliminate the threat of warfare
solve the need for welfare

know that time will go on without us
only evil thoughts should be treasonous
most hopes and dreams are superfluous
God,
just let me be another bozo on the bus

Poem:

.

the old man’s mind still enjoys it’s trips to fantasy land
remembering the occasional one night stand
sometimes recalling the details, the time and place
a few were nothing but a blur, others had a face

the morning after always a calliope of feelings
praying that the night included no weddings
very little guilt from the drive for self satisfaction
no remorse for the victim, didn’t believe in compassion

a name that was a lie needs no amends
what’s a little hot and heavy among friends
he wished for the goose what was good for the gander
the rules were set, he was just another philander

when he remembers, today he looks
touching is definitely not in the books
still rude, never a sympathetic heart surgeon
always trying to become a better curmudgeon

tired, spent, he’s given up trying
he believes there is a benefit to dying
faith, there is a purpose God put us upon this earth
believe, good memories are all that it’s worth
