There You Are

“No matter

where you go,

there you are,”

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

is the beginning

of all knowledge.”

Elfje:         (Cinquain)

smile

pretty face

eyes that sparkle

a very happy heart

laugh

Lune:    5 / 3 / 5

peace and happiness

joyful bliss

by doing God’s will

Poem:

.

a hot muggy summers night
air so thick it hazes the moonlight
crickets and frogs don’t seem to mind
what a wonderful world God has designed

man’s so vain he thinks he can affect the weather
it’s Mother Nature who puts things together
evolution caused by the Earth’s wobble
man is but one percent of the climate bobble

the earth’s crust is constantly shifting
the tectonic plates are always drifting
man’s existence is but a blip on the Earth’s timeline
for what little we know we can thank Einstein

who cares if New York City sinks under the sea
that Saint Andreas fault sets California free
is there an Orwellian world in our future
or will civilization flush itself down the sewer

will man’s ego still reign supreme
or will we wake up and learn that it was all a dream
