Beneath eyes that remember what’s true
are the pictures with which they imbue
catalogues in the soul;
like sweet treat in a bowl
you can taste throughout life like they’re new.

When power leads man toward arrogance, poetry reminds him of his limitations. When power narrows the areas of man's concern, poetry reminds him of the richness and diversity of his existence. When power corrupts, poetry cleanses.
John Fitzgerald Kennedy



Kindness is a seed sown by the gentlest hand, growing care's flowers.

If you want your new life to be tasty
you had best not be going forth hasty
lest you land in place
where the girls are in lace
or much less, and you're tongue's on a pasty.

If your tongue’s on a pasty I’ve guessed
you were in a strip club just to test
whether it would adhere
to a bust or a rear
but the bouncer might think you’re a pest.

If you are a pest to the bouncer
'cause he catches you trying to pounce 'er
you'll be thrown on your can
by that gigantic man
at the voice of the watching announcer.

The announcer has voiced his concerns
about dancers who won’t take their turns
on the stage out of fears
you’ll be touching their rears
so the bouncer gives you sidewalk burns.

If the bouncer gives you railroad tracks
you may have to go home, change your slacks
after showering well
so your friends cannot tell
that you filled up your pants with Big Macs.

With a Big Mac you fill up your pants
but it makes everyone look askance
because you are obese
from the buns and the grease
and you shimmy whenever you dance.

If you're skinny, whenever you dance
your suspenders that hold up your pants
haven't anything to
hold them up; you've no clue
what will happen when you hear the chants.

Hearing chants? What will happen when you
start to see the Gregorians too?
Will the monks let you join
if you give them some coin
and then ask them to sing something new.

When you ask them to sing something new
they will offer to give you a chew
of their new spearmint gum
where the music comes from
and you'll jump like a young kangaroo.

If you jump like a young kangaroo
you’ll wind up living in a pouch too
but that may not be good
for the mama Roo could
be a target for some city’s zoo.
