“ON NUMBERS, BOW-ING, CAMELS & TAO*-ING!” a poem. a.k.a.: “Re: Symbols, Traditions & Superstitions!” Sunday: June 10**, 2018
ONE is you, and TWO is us; combined? = 3, why the fuss?
About-numerology – and ancient symbols;
It’s ‘cause WE’RE KOOKY – clanging cymbals,
Thinking that we know so much,
And we are smarter than The Dutch,
Which just means “sharing;” it-is one way,
As The-Book-of-Acts, TRIES to say:
For, in EAST-east-EASTERN-ology,
TAO* means WAY, (Not)-Christ-Mystery!!
And-we-have-no-“dibs” on The-Number-6,
It is just-a-1-2-3-ish-kinda “mix,”
Meaning THINGS OF DAILY LIFE!
And-7? Who knows? Perhaps my wife,
Can tell-you (that) numbers are a “good read,”
BUT – they should, surely, NOT impede,
You – or p’rhaps ‘cause-you-to-avoid,
Cracks or needles, or-so-to-void,
The simple fact that symbols ARE,
A part of every “cultural bar!”
7, 7, times 7′s JUST-A-LOT,
And BOW-ing is NOT – Evil Sought!
Obesaince, or kneeling, to authority,
Has always been “a thing” you see –
USUALLY! No one – gives it so verymuch,
Thought – when-bowing-
To-The Queen, or-a-pot!
And camels, through a mountain pass?
Are like threads through needles’ brass,
Meaning? (pause) It takes resolution,
But – every difficulty has (a) solution!
And 2 or 3 (times) of 6 or 7,
Emphasizes strength (just like leaven!),
To multiply the power we see,
So things can GROW, for you and men.
All concepts – so we’re surely bound,
To go to a Hell-place, IN OUR MIND,
Thinking Dante could really find,
A literal place!
But, then, (pause)
He-convinced the sadly dim,
And un-creative, unwashed masses,
That Hell exists and even passes,
For a place – to stay forever? (L. O. L.)
What a crock, in any weather!
Oh, well, we’re-A SUPERSTITIOUS BUNCH OF “GOATS,”
Which simply means: We’ve-(some)-stubborn-notes,
But, SURELY, “God” (L. O. L.) does not want SHEEP,
Gently following without a peep,
But, NOW, IF-you-really-like-to-bleat-and-baa-around,
Superstition can-always abound!! 🙂
* – loosely pronounced: D O W, which is just a chemical company! 🙂 – choke, cough!
** – equals finished, complete, return to the start, etc., et al, ad nauseum …
