Maturity Required

 

.

“You must have

a certain amount

of maturity

to be a poet.

Seldom do sixteen-year-olds

know themselves

well enough.”

Poem:

.

there was this song in my heart
I just could not get it out of my head
it was a feeling I could not get rid of
it had something to do with being in love

it was then that you walked into the room
the happy feelings began to bloom
had the words just needed a melody
harps and trumpets, something heavenly

not my talent, to impatient
I just don’t understand the relation
notes and rhythm to match the words
think I’ll just let singing to the birds

that still leaves me with the feelings for you
I want to be on a lake with you in my canoe
then I hear me strumming my out of tune guitar
the whole picture becomes hazy and bizarre

darn it, shucks, dang blam it, another failure
I know that I will never understand this behavior
despite the ruckus, there is one thing that is true
I will always and forever be in love with you

Savor The Moments

that are warm

and special

and giggly.”

jest

not real

just for fun

it makes me laugh

Poem:

.

please read
it may be just what you need
a kick in the pants to get you started
a journey not for the fainthearted

let us take a trip to nowhere
where productive thinking is very rare
destination: the seat of government
a place full of fanciful wonderment

how did these clowns ever get elected
making laws common sense rejected
a politician’s authority for personal gain
corruption, graft, the richest gravy train

how can they afford those huge mansions
a slap on the wrist that they call sanctions
Nepotism, Cronyism, who’s not qualified ?
their excuse is that their hands are tied

bad lawyers running to assuage their egotism
their dictionaries do not include the word altruism
always at conflict with their primary purpose
acting like wolves going for an opponents carcass

billionaires bought the last election
has democracy lost its moral direction
now is the time to do your part
vote with your head, not with your heart
