“Now the trouble

about trying to

make yourself stupider

than you really are

is that you very often

succeed.”

sin

in hell

guilt and shame

to be a fool

Tanka:             5-7-5, 7-7

forever the fool

not being true to myself

trying to be more

I cannot be embarrassed

because I am always right

Poem:

.

the farmer works 24/7, 365
his show is never taped, always live
following nature he knows all of the rules
experience and passion provide him the tools

from drought to flood natures rules do change
life is not always easy on the grange
the fickle consumer wants no GMO’s
yet they still buy all of those false promos

thank God for farmers, I love to eat
brought to the grocery store down the street
choices,  breakfast, lunch and dinner
if I choose right my diet can be a winner

please say a prayer for a bumper crop
may the farmer always come out on top

Forever

“Art

is long,

and

Time

is fleeting.”

Elfje:

art

time fly’s

making sweet music

when you’re having fun

eternity

Haiku:

air conditioning

mechanical invention

not the real season

Poem:

.

did Frost care about his legacy
as an American icon in his own time
was Poe ever concerned about his identity
as an editor he offended very many

the poet laments man’s frailty
founded on historic and trending times
lemmings dressed as soldiers bravely
lying on hearts and minds weighty

most never notice that life goes on
consumed with ego and pressing demands
not the sharpest in the box of crayon
like a tortoise into their shell withdrawn

there are two sides to every coin
to be politically correct, bi-polar
the mind has it’s own life to purloin
dramatic pretenses trying to be soigne

is it a discussion or an argument
will there be a winner or a loser
males driven by the domestic termagant
or is she just the trophies ornament

the diplomatic never gives in to either side
inspiration for the next installment
is there a soul who has never lied
it is not our wants that life will provide

forget the legacy, let us just play pretend
lose the identity and be the chameleon
who cares, life is nothing but a tiny godsend
enjoy this chance, be a loving dividend.
