If relenting for cause, I would say
you were prone to do that anyway
for the logical mind
will not leave ones’ behind
hanging out and for all, on display.

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.

Hanging out here, there's none to display
what you write for, and hardly to play.
I've been not feeling well;
my bod's going to hell.
I've been off-line for many a day.

Many days you have not been on-line
and the cause is, you’re not feeling fine.
Is it due to your knees
or your feet? Be at ease
with your lap-top in bed while supine.

Yes, my laptop, but I'm not in bed;
I have used my recliner instead.
Oft the pain in my shin
tempts my mouth to great sin,
but depression's what plays with my head.

If depression’s what plays in your head
and you feel you’d be better of dead
think of how you’ve been blessed
more than most of the rest
and then put on a big smile instead.

If I put a big smile on my steed
it's because I was dreaming, and peed
while the dreamt horse looked on
and it drizzled till gone
from my vessel, and pressure was freed.

If that pressure in vessels was freed
then of medicine, there is no need
so the cuff for your arm
can be worn like a charm
and the doctors will not intercede.

If my butt's hanging out on display
it is not from my kneeling to pray.
I can't get on my knees
'cause of pain and un-ease
but I do pray. What more can I say?

I can say that I pray but what’s more
there are times when I want to explore
penitence on my feet
so when prayers are complete
I don’t have to get off of the floor.



Daniel, I've been on vacation for a while but I'm back now.

My inaction's had me on the floor
but I'm on a new path to explore.
Though it's three months away
gastric sleeve should one day
make me lighter than air in my core.

If your core makes you lighter than air
what’s in store is a life without care
where you float in the breeze
but look out for that sneeze
or some flatulence; you just don’t dare.

Well, in truth I would not be that light;
my exagerous words were a slight
bit o' stretchin' the truth,
but alas and forsooth
I've well-started the weight-losing fight!

If you’ve started your weight losing bout
to be skinny, not overly stout
here’s a rule you might use
which you’ll never abuse:
if the food’s tasting good, spit it out.

If you spit out the food that tastes good
they will think you are nasty and rude;
it is better to taste
lightly; swallow, don't waste.
Then it's "knife to your throat!" understood?
