Never Argue

.
“Never argue

with an idiot.

They will only

bring you down

to their level

and beat you

with experience.”

.

~ George Carlin

.

Elfje:            (Cinquain)    Classic: each word only one syllable.
.

slow
just daft
not as fast
the dim light bulb
dumb

.

Haiku:     (5-7-5, nature and seasons the topic)
.

natures season turns
sunny hot and muggy days
mild spring is over

.

Poem:   

the promises come true only when we are willing to change
it is the people, places and things we must rearrange
the most important lesson is to change from me to we
it is wonderful to know that a new attitude is free

salvation for the addicted with a backward brain
restored to a new way of thinking that is sane
thinking of consequences before they react
sad that the science of the brain is still inexact

never again to be sorry or to be bored
for the lucky good relationships restored
miracles akin to the rising of the Phoenix bird
sad that the disease is stronger than the word

it matters not to what someone is addicted
the twelve step program can save the afflicted

In Due Time

.

“I shall,

in due time,

be a Poet.”

.

~ Ada Lovelace

.

.

Elfje:            (Cinquain)

.

practice

do over

and over again

until it’s done right

rehearse

.

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

.

their love was not lost

torn apart by civil war

rekindled again

.

Poem:

.

the blame was always put on others
the sickest could incriminate their mothers
the index finger was pointed so others could see
they ignore the three pointing back: I, self and me

the thumb points up to remind them that God knows
trying to dismiss what lies right under their nose
the intent is to overlook their own lives debris
acting like a monkey trying to hide up in a tree

came to discover his brain was the problem
using drugs and alcohol he failed to blossom
he developed a disease from which there is no cure
untreated it leads to jails, institutions and death, for sure

for treatments that work, God is at the core
too much ego leads to a swinging door
get in, get in, do the next right thing
recovery is the only value worth worshiping

best of all no need of finger pointing
let go and let God, no more fighting
a new way of life, a new way of thinking
one day at a time, just not drinking

it has worked for millions, why not you
try the Twelve Step program to see you through
