Poem:

.

it is alright to let your mind travel to far away lands
trips to a fantasyland that no one else understands
just remember to come home from time to time
unless your chosen vocation is being a street mime

those who think they are in control call it a daydream
hopefully your trips are not too frequently upstream
beware of the romantic delusion that verges upon lust
better to dream being rich and building a charitable trust

is it only the sick whose fantasies become nightmares
or was it what you ate that made you unawares
what of the seer whose mind cultivates premonitions
can anyone do it under the right set of conditions

must you make reservations to take these trips
must you pack a bag if you’re joining the apocalypse
let this rhyme stimulate your mind
and may all of your trips be one of a kind

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
