Sometimes just ENJOY YOUR DAYS!”🌞🌝☀

“TIME TO LOOSEN UP – JUST A BIT, MAYBE!?” a poem Sunday, 6/17/2018 🙂

Even though you eat organic, with-doctor-visits twice a year,

Taking the right pills and tonics – with-nothing-much you have to fear,

You wear your ca-ar-see-ee-at-belt – always; (pause)

You-don’t-drink –

Too much wine or beer,

And-you put on the proper sunscreen,

And-use-eye-drops, so you won’t tear!

Where you live is pretty crime free – and you-don’t-burn very-much-debris,

And-you-stop at every Stop Sign,

And-obey-The-Po-lice-Laws with glee!

Your body is a joyous temple, of The GOD you worship well:

So-when you di-ie, NO-one-will-say that you-might-ever go to-Hell!

“I take good care of the real me-me, and I give to the Food Bank,

I work-out at the local gym, at least three times and bless the (army) tank!

I support OUR Peace-Initiatives, ‘cause life must be lived STRONG – Hooray!

I pay my taxes – ALL ON TIME, for governments must have their way!

I get to bed on time, oh Dear One, and-work the way I always should,

And I like obeying all THE ELDERS – Just the way they knew I would!

I’m singing in the local choir; I tithe at church and smile a lot:

I KNOW to spurn ILLEGAL actions, and-especially, I a-void POT!”

“SO, there am I, on my nice death bed, in-a cli-i-mate controlled-room,

I’m sure my “friends” will like to visit, to lay me in a pre-formed tomb:

My Living Will was kind and simple; my graveside service, it was calm,

For life was-about being-comfo’able – for me, they read the-23rd-Psalm!

{SO – I died! (pause) And now I wonder! (long, long pause)

Did I really love my mom?}

As I look back – I-also-wonder – why I passed (on)-that-piece-of-pie?

And ice cream – and a little red meat:

Even-though it-makes my-vegan-friends-cry?

I often thought to “drop The F-Bomb, and screw & drink into the night,

And kick the smiling, holy deacons, who groped at me,

I would not fight –

You-know, IF life is really worth it, sometimes you-loosen The-Straight-Jacket,

And kiss that friendly, sinful devil, (pause)

With the warm and quivering “packet!”

NOW, I-ain’t-saying: “Chunk it All – and discount (all) the-cul-tur-al mo-ores!”

I’m only saying: “Loosen up, Dear – (pause)

Sometimes just ENJOY YOUR DAYS!”

Life is like a bunch of roses. Some sparkle like raindrops. Some fade when there's no sun. Some just fade away in time. Some dance in many colors. Some drop with hanging wings. Some make you fall in love. The beauty is in the eye of the beholder. Life you can be sure of, you will not get out ALIVE.(sorry about that)
