Savor The Moments

.

‘Savor the moments

that are warm

and special

and giggly.”

.

~ Sammy Davis, Jr.

.

Elfje:         (Cinquain)    classic: each word only one syllable

.

jest

not real

just for fun

it makes me laugh

joke

.

Lune:    5 / 3 / 5

.

just as God made it

natural

adapting to now

.

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

Nameless Graces

.

“Music resembles poetry,

in each are nameless graces

which no methods teach,

and which a master hand

alone can reach.”

.

― Alexander Pope

.

.

Elfje: (Cinquain)

.

melodic

fingers dance

strings respond accordingly

tuned instrument, dynamic virtuoso

piano

.

Haiku:

.

sunrise muted haze

the master hand of nature

sunset brilliant blaze

.

Poem:

.

dimpled dancer Lilly
acting kind of silly
with talents endowed
excited the saloon crowd

ambition consumed her
practiced becoming a poseur
married to gain status
climbed upon the political apparatus

power became her passion
her persona she did refashion
she changed her name to Hillary
her soul bought by the big artillery

her ego convinced her she had won
she actually believed she was a nun
the electorate saw through her scam
she failed in their final exam

there is more yet to unfold
will the true story ever be told
has her foundation received its last donation
will what she deserves ever come to fruition

maybe she should just become Lilly again
and cease giving everyone a rectal pain
stop being the pot calling the kettle black
time to give Bill his deserved kickback

Gulliver struggled with the lilliputian
American’s their moral prostitution
how will democracy ever survive
surly it will not be by watching The Five

religious or not , say a prayer
hope will find a cure . . . somewhere
