Never Argue

.
“Never argue

with an idiot.

They will only

bring you down

to their level

and beat you

with experience.”

.

~ George Carlin

Elfje:            (Cinquain)    Classic: each word only one syllable.
.

slow
just daft
not as fast
the dim light bulb
dumb

.

Haiku:     (5-7-5, nature and seasons the topic)
.

natures season turns
sunny hot and muggy days
mild spring is over

.

Poem:   

the promises come true only when we are willing to change
it is the people, places and things we must rearrange
the most important lesson is to change from me to we
it is wonderful to know that a new attitude is free

salvation for the addicted with a backward brain
restored to a new way of thinking that is sane
thinking of consequences before they react
sad that the science of the brain is still inexact

never again to be sorry or to be bored
for the lucky good relationships restored
miracles akin to the rising of the Phoenix bird
sad that the disease is stronger than the word

it matters not to what someone is addicted
the twelve step program can save the afflicted

The Line Is Drawn

.

“I think it’s the duty

of the comedian

to find out where

the line is drawn

and cross it deliberately.”

.

~ George Carlin

.

Elfje:         (Cinquain)

.

laugh

bad jokes

silly faux pas

clowns, sidemen and slapstick

funny

.

Lune:    5 / 3 / 5

.

blooming spring blossoms

pollen falls

air to thick to breathe

.

Poem:

.

Visa V

rare is the bean that flavors vanilla
most exclusive to the court of Victoria
grown from the orchid flower, not the Iris
they add egg to their cream in Paris

it is the sugar not the chocolate
eight ball in the side pocket
never kind enough to mother dear
breakfast of champions a bagel schmear

funny how the poem writes
it’s limits knows no heights
every word exhibits its own emotion
subtle innuendo or crazy comotion

the poem waits patiently to be written
knowing that the writer has been bitten
the topic as usual, life, love or death
do yourself a favor, don’t hold your breath

life being lived in a no man’s land
lovers walking hand in hand
death is usually unplanned

now the poem has covered all of the topics
time to get my hands out of my pockets.
