For the next meal and that’s by decree
you should eat everything that you see
has been placed on your plate;
such as that is your fate
and the pounds will drop off one… two… three.

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.

I'm afraid, if the pounds would drop off,
what I see must be less. Do not scoff.
A banana is small
for a stomach; that's all
it will be, so I'd better not cough.

I had better not cough, it will be
a disaster you don’t want to see
for my elbow won’t reach
what I use for good speech;
I’m surprised at what comes out of me.

If what comes out of you are fine words
you can sell them for feed for your birds
so they'll flap in the sky
to the great by and by
or just drop on your head little turds.

… and since I just wrote this to a friend on AP who wants me to affirm that I'm not getting old...


I affirm that my brain's staying young
while forced oxygen fills up my lung
Painful feet won't concur
and my eyes start to blur
though I'm nibbling on hot egg fu yung.
