Get Drunk

.
“One should always be drunk.

That’s all that matters…

But with what?

With wine, with poetry,

or with virtue,

as you chose.

But get drunk.”

.

~ Charles Baudelaire

Elfje:            (Cinquain)

.

hesitate

pregnant pause

take your time

maybe yes, maybe no

procrastination

.

Tanka:             5-7-5, 7-7

.

admitted the crime

ought to be a civil law

just laughed at the judge

 

people take themselves serious

can’t put a price on feelings

.

Poem:

.

the opposite of bad is good
the place where most heroes stood

a life lived with conscientious integrity
never a question about the morality
a head held high with dignity

a smile, a kind word, always exuding goodness
every decision and action guided by virtuousness
promises made, promises kept, trustworthiness
to a Higher Power given his righteousness

every days effort completed with propriety
simple, sincere and transparent honesty
every soul treated with decency

accolades and cudos won with merit
traits that all of our sons should inherit

Money, Money, Money

.

“There’s no money

in poetry,

but there’s

no poetry

in money, either”

.

― Robert Graves

Elfje:         (Cinquain)

.

miracles

unexplainable coincidences

against all odds

answer to a prayer

blessings

.

Lune:    5 / 3 / 5

.

undeserved blessings

miracles

manna from heaven

.

Poem:

.

up and down
emotions on a merry-go-round
reaching for the golden ring
riding on the yoyo string

good times bring the happy
setbacks deliver the crappy
the sick have absolutely no control
no escape from their funky hole

the shrink guesses, then writes
good drugs dispensed to calm the nights
the crazy will misuse and abuse
trying to make sense of Mother Goose

the addictive personality blooms
inspiration for sad cartoons
depression brings on thoughts of suicide
neuroses ebbing and flowing with the tide

feelings of love totally abandoned
conscious reality touched at random
who knows how many quietly suffer
battling demons who are much tougher

patience and tolerance, more is learned each day
if man survives, a cure may be found, we pray

.

ME and the Boss.
