If your life is a mess, more or less
and you feel like you need to confess
all your sins to a priest
but you’ll tell him you’ve ceased
going out on the town in a dress.

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.

Since you like walkin' 'round in your frock
you had best keep your eyes on the clock.
When I reaches 1-2
you'll be faced by the shrew
who will rip off your clothes to your jock!

To my jock? If my clothes are ripped off
I’m afraid the old shrew will not scoff
but will want to cavort;
no athletic support
can contain; but it may make her cough.

If it’s making her cough, it contains
a few threads from my raggedy Hanes
which I should throw away
but it won’t be today;
I’ll keep them though there are a few stains.
