in the world

is on my

wavelength.”

strange

real queer

more than odd

a small bit quaint

weird

Poem:

pondering do I have a philosophy
conjuring up Socrates subconsciously
does my life really have a meaning
if I’m lucky I might just be dreaming

Dad said I should always be kind
love is what Mother brought to mind
can’t remember what the preacher said
the teacher tried to pound it into my head

good and bad are a matter of opinion
is there a God who has total dominion
what does ugly know about aesthetics
what percent of me is in the genetics

you lose if you were blinking
me, I was only winking
eureka, I got it when I heard the bell ringing
my philosophy requires no real thinking

it is what it is

Discuss

“Strong minds

discuss ideas,

average minds

discuss events,

weak minds

discuss people.”

thought

an idea

made a calculation

answer to a problem

figured

enjoy in one word

happiness

it’s your attitude

Poem:

.

a unique word
describing a different bird
a small bird with a huge beak
it holds a aura of mystique

it could be a cousin to the cacique
it’s presence signaled by a loud shriek
the scariest sound you ever heard
probably, definitely a rare bird

it flies so fast it’s image is blurred
it’s acrobatics border on the absurd
in the avian world a most unusual technique
never straight but always on the oblique

every bird in the flock so very gregarious
in a word and the world sui generis
call the bird by any name you want
and assume that you are truly savant
