The Tongue

.

“I act as the

tongue of you,.

.. tied in your mouth . .

. . in mine it begins

to be loosened.”

.

~ Walt Whitman

ad lib

tongue in cheek

snide, rude, droll, wry

Senryu:      5-7-5 ( Haiku with people and their emotions/feelings as a topic)
.
drinking a  poison
hoping for others to die
resentments are bad

Poem:

.

he doctored his coffee with sweetener and cream
he wondered that his life was no more than a dream
sunshine on the porch where he sat in his rocking chair
there he settled into old age with out a care

let the grand kids worry about world affairs
who cares that mankind in is in serious need of repairs
when will people know that humans are but one race
that existence depends upon learning to share the space

my generation ignored the humor of Will Rogers
we laughed at the bad  films of those old codgers
George Carlin was so right that it almost wasn’t funny
this generation thinks only about the money

ego and greed, not politics, running todays government
even the Corona virus made many a comfortable retirement
government patents filed ten years before the pandemic
made the entire swamp a part of the evil systemic

back to the day dream, watching the butterfly drifting by
wondering why every day there are more jet streams in the sky
mulling the thoughts,  should I, could I, do I care
why worry, enjoy what we can, let us begin with a prayer

A Gift

A book

is a gift

you can open

again and again.”

~ Garrison Keillor

Elfje:            (Cinquain)

swing

jazz type

to and fro

go the other way

sway

.

Senryu:      5-7-5 ( Haiku with people and their emotions/feelings as a topic)

.

we all need someone

love, the grandest emotion

a reason to live

.

Poem:

.

along came the Coronavirus
delivered to man by the God Osiris
mostly it picked on the elderly
those who were compromised medically

Communist China was the original source
their deception added to the eventual course
the WHO added more misery to the woes
but, the free world were formidable foes

mitigation was begun by social isolation
economies paralized by the duration
in some arenas it was politics as usual
the far left proved themselves very delusional

eventually with scientific and human resolve
the Covid-19 pandemic was finally solved
