Useful

“Poets aren’t

very useful. 

Because they

aren’t consumeful

or very produceful.”

a heart filled with hate
a childhood that was awful
God gave him a chance

she taught him to love himself
they shared a loving spirit

.

Poem:
.

just another God given day
another chance to have fun and play
to be thankful for the blessings received
almost too good to be believed

rain or shine it is all about the attitude
happy are those who have gratitude
be kind and love unconditionally
every tribe finds it traditionally

every event is a God given blessing
a salad covered with your favorite dressing
time flies when you are having fun
always best shared with a loved one

have your mind stay in today and enjoy
let friends and laughter be your favorite toy

Poem:

.

it is alright to let your mind travel to far away lands
trips to a fantasyland that no one else understands
just remember to come home from time to time
unless your chosen vocation is being a street mime

those who think they are in control call it a daydream
hopefully your trips are not too frequently upstream
beware of the romantic delusion that verges upon lust
better to dream being rich and building a charitable trust

is it only the sick whose fantasies become nightmares
or was it what you ate that made you unawares
what of the seer whose mind cultivates premonitions
can anyone do it under the right set of conditions

must you make reservations to take these trips
must you pack a bag if you’re joining the apocalypse
let this rhyme stimulate your mind
and may all of your trips be one of a kind
