Tomorrow

Tomorrow will be Christmas day
when those of faith kneel down and pray;
give thanks to God who sent his Son
and celebrate the chosen One
Who rose from death to show the way.

His effigies are on display
in stores where people shop and pay
until their buying has been done
tomorrow.

Why there is greed in each foray?
I do not know and couldn’t say
that they were out there having fun
but back to stores they all will run
returning gifts then shop EBay
tomorrow.

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.

He Groans

He groans about his poetry
and wonders if someone will see
its value; who'll appreciate?
Some lines they love, but others hate.
Some change from heir to aujourd'hui.

A fickle public's not the key
to writing -- not for you or me.
It's for ourselves to write, create
the groans.

We love to play with words to be
our entertainment; you'll agree
that's what we like. It won't abate.
Not all who read demodulate
our humor. "What will be will be,"
he groans.

Our Humor

Our humor is but for a few
while others never will construe
the underlying meanings of
its messages. They’re far above
their heads and fly out in the blue.

If placing hands on heads might do
then there’s a chance they’d catch a few
of innuendoes, then they’d love
our humor.

But my impressions are quite true
that things we write will not imbue
them with the knowledge of a dove.
Perhaps they’d trap, with net or glove,
or maybe they'd just have to glue
our humor.

Our trap is baited carefully
with words that readers do not see
until they're coming back again
to ask them where their minds have been;
we tell them that the laughter's free.

Some folks don't like our foolin' thee
with double-meaning designee
who's innocently courtesan
to show the unsuspecting man
our trap.

Still others tire of our degree
of plays on words, and most agree
we play the role of handymen
when we could be like Groupe Beauchesne.
Duct tape, they say, should referee
our trap.

P.S. Larry, take a look back at some of your latest rondeaux, and you'll see that you've left off an A-Rhyme line before the final rentrement.

Hey Daniel,
Thanks for the heads-up on the final "A" rhyme. I've gone back and corrected all I could find so, hopefully, they are now proper Rondeau.

Larry

I'll get back to you soon with my next one.
