Yippee – Have a Good Day!!

“JUST LOOKING FOR SOMETHING, SEEMINGLY, TO RELIEVE THE BOREDOM OR GET US BACK 2 THE GARDEN!” The “long-awaited” sequel!

Still: SUN-day! February 18, 2018 …

… THEY tell me, IF am not HERE, I am THERE,

In Heaven or Hell, BUT – NOW, let’s just beware!

WE DON’T REALLY KNOW WHAT IS NOT REALLY HERE!

But, let’s take a chance! Could be better, My Dear!

And it seems MUCH MORE PEOPLE like to “take pills!”

To pacify tendencies,

NO-PAIN!

CONQUER ILLS!

Money is needed – to buy things we want!

And lots of “GOOD” sex – can inspire us to grunt!

But, remember, it seems to be true – IN THIS STRIFE,

That a variety-of-options gives “SPICE IN OUR LIFE!”

Nothing’s changed!

ONLY DIFFERENT,

From A day we were born?

Which we all don’t remember – which leaves us all “torn!”

We’re really just moving, with nowhere to go,

We cry and we squirm – in this crib – WE WANT MO’ –

More than the crib, so we seek to find OUT,

What will inspire and stop all the pout!

And it never gets found – THEN, MAYBE, ONE DAY:

All our yearnings and seekings – THEY ALL GO AWAY!!

And, then, we observe, as we sit on a couch,

All of the others who run and say: “OUCH!”

‘Cause it seems that the more that we all run around,

We just hurt ourselves with the stuff that we’ve found!

That WON’T BRING CONTENTMENT,

Just keeps us all GOING!

AND SOME PEOPLE WRITE POEMS,

Amidst all of their “woe-ing!”

We think that just something can relieve all this flurry!

Of MIND, HEART & SOUL – but, we’re still in a(n) hurrrrrrrry!

“IF I just had him (or her) to hold all the time,

To kiss and to cuddle, or to drink lots of wine,

Or IF I just had all of the money, indeed,

Or IF I could just meditate, pray or just read,

THEN, I’D BE HAPPY – CONTENT(ED) OR RELIEVED,

BUT our short ‘tension span – it seems to impede,

All of our efforts,

To thwart

BOREDOM & DISEASE,

Well, welcome to “Shangr-ila” – It’s a big tease!

SO

Drink ya some water,

Have ya some tea,

Go to the bar,

And shag sweet girl Gigi!

We’re all in a ship,

AND IT AIN’T GOING DOWN!!

And-ya-can-laugh-cry-or-scowl,

Or put on a frown,

Dye your hair purple, go to school or not,

Take pharmaceuticals –

Or smoke lots o’ pot,

Travel to other – places – to find out,

That those folks too –

Squirm, squeal and pout!

And they (too) think the grass’ll be greener – over there,

And always keep hoping and praying –

AND STARE,

At the masses of people and things ALL AROUND,

Who are ALL just as lost,

As this reader I’ve found!* 🙂
