The Most Powerful Drug

 

I am, by calling,

a dealer in words;

and words are,

of course,

the most powerful drug

used by mankind.”

.

Rudyard Kipling

drug

chemical influence

brain neurons interrupted

abnormal escape from reality

dope

Lune:    5 / 3 / 5

reading the fake news

politics

opinions galore

Poem:

.

April showers brings May pollen
the early worm evades the robin
nature both gives and takes away
man gifted by a beautiful bouquet

can we ruin it all with plastic pollution
are there consequences for fooling evolution
when man has expired there will be no more time
there will be no winners to punish the crime

hopefully we’ll find where the soul resides
nature will overcome those pesticides
the philosophers will discover what it is
everyone will know all of the answers to all of the quizzes

chortle, love, do the next right thing
pray, prepare to welcome another spring

Good Poets Poems

.

.

If poets often commit suicide,

it is not because their poems

are bad

but because they

are good.

Whoever heard of a bad poet

committing suicide?

.

~ Walker Percy,

Lost in the Cosmos: The Last Self-Help Book

.

.

Elfje: (Cinquain)

.

attitude

negative, positive

one’s personal outlook

coping with the world

adjustment

.

Haiku:

.

universe explodes

expanding at hyper speed

time is man’s concept

.

Poem:

.

you must give up all hope
for a better past*
walking the slippery slope
tomorrow will be here too fast

living in the here and now
with an attitude of gratitude
contemplating the why or how
relying on God for fortitude

life is nothing but a decision
history a vague reference point
hindsight is always 20-20 vision
only the good shall we anoint

what was done, was done
today, let’s all have some fun

.
