The Soul Of Them

.

“Reading is

not walking

on the words;

it’s grasping

the soul of them.”

~ Paulo Freire

Poem:

.

If you spot it you got it
some bad habits that are too hard to quit
the pot calling the kettle black
if it is a duck it will probably quack

quote Lincoln “Better to remain silent. . .”
lawyer representing himself has a fool for a client
meditate and go with the nudge
God will be the final judge

remember that it is not all about you
everyone has a different view
that is why the humblest agree to compromise
don’t be so smart, try to be very wise

good news, it is never too late to change
be willing , your attitude to rearrange

ME and the Boss

Abraham Lincoln –
Quote – “Better to remain silent and be thought a fool
than to speak and to remove all doubt.”

“the wisdom to know the difference.”
the smart learn from their own mistakes,
the wise learn from the mistakes of others.

a failure of

the ego.

summer rain begins

adding to humidity

plants don’t seem to mind

dry lakes need water

nature knows her job

Poem:

.

a long week without writing a poem
wanted to be happy, but I kept watching the news
have this feeling I’m at the bottom of the totem
can’t listen to the music when it is only the blues

can’t pick a color, to me all lives matter
don’t they care about whose lives they shatter
burning and looting is not peaceful protest
the only thing they could pass is an anarchy test

will the peaceful majority rule at the next election
or will the minority socialist make the selection
what will happen when there is nothing left to give away
that empty feeling when all that’s left is to hope and pray

maybe God can come back into the picture
the lessons, the history are all in the scripture
the pandemic rages on, no common sense
what can I get with my last two cents

happiness is my new found prize
I have learned to laugh at the politicians lies
