Useful

.

“Poets aren’t

very useful. 

Because they

aren’t consumeful

or very produceful.”

.

~  Ogden Nash

.

Elfje:            (Cinquain)          classic: each word only one syllable
.
verse
a rhyme
ode to love
a song of praise
hymn
.

Tanka:             5-7-5, 7-7
.
a heart filled with hate
a childhood that was awful
God gave him a chance

she taught him to love himself
they shared a loving spirit

.

Poem:
.

just another God given day
another chance to have fun and play
to be thankful for the blessings received
almost too good to be believed

rain or shine it is all about the attitude
happy are those who have gratitude
be kind and love unconditionally
every tribe finds it traditionally

every event is a God given blessing
a salad covered with your favorite dressing
time flies when you are having fun
always best shared with a loved one

have your mind stay in today and enjoy
let friends and laughter be your favorite toy

There You Are

.

“No matter

where you go,

there you are,”
.
.

~ Yogi Berra

.

Elfje:            (Cinquain)

.

went

came back

took a trip

went to the fair

fun

.

Tanka:             5-7-5, 7-7

.

running from police

for rioting and looting

anarchist was paid

being caught is no big deal

liberal judge looks other way

.

Poem:

.

one too many games without a helmet
the old mind is losing its merit
can’t remember names or dates
does this lead all men to their fates

going to see the doc next Tuesday
his choice of a supplement to stop the decay
is it worth my money to believe their hype
do I really fit into that old age stereotype

my tailor says I should forget to eat
leave the kitchen if you can’t stand the heat
thinking thin has produced no results
for motivation the wife is hurling insults

growing older has not been fun
but I guess it will happen to everyone
stop worrying, enjoy the day
one is never too old to play
