“IT’S (REALLY) EASY TO BE HUMBLE!” a poem, 750 poems so far on Tumblr (and counting!) a.k.a.: “I Feel Another Hissy Fit Coming On! Help Me! What Am I To Do?” Wednesday: June 20, 2018!
Consider all the tears you’ve cried;
Consider how-very hard you’ve tried,
To amount to ANYTHING (pause) at anytime!
Consider! That-you’ve-committed-EVERY-crime! 🙂
And, on any day, you’ve no recourse,
But-to-go-and-pet the Handsome Horse,
Who lives nearby, just up the street,
And is confined, so you may greet,
HIM there – confessing (that) another day,
Has appeared! Well,
Shall we pray?
With-or-without the prayers of men,
Whether (you’re) atheist, Jew or Zen!
Your frail frame SEEMS strong sometimes,
You-IMAGINE-your-mind can make some rhymes –
YET, EVEN-ONE-PIN-PRICK CAN DRIVE YOU DOWN, WITH TETANUS OR DEATH, YOU CLOWN!
The boys, with feathers fluffed up nice,
The girls, convinced they-can-control-The-World,
Just want ONE boy, beside them, curled,
Whispering gently – in their ear,
“My Sweet pea! There’s-nothing-to-fear!”
AND – that their lives will be OK,
And-they’ll-live; “Yes-we’ll-live, for Many A Day,
And we-won’t age quickly or lose our hair,
And, IN MY EYES, YOU’RE ALWAYS FAIR,
And always proper and worthwhile too,
And there’s a God, who’s loving you?!”
But, REALLY! Who-knows? and – REALLY? Who-cares?
Into-our-sad-eyes, filled with fright,
HOPING WE MIGHT LAST THE NIGHT,
Hoping-the-morrow will come, and-I’ll-see,
Your sweet self, next to me,
It’s-not-hard-to-be-humble, when there’s no guarantee,
About-your-next-breath – coming to Thee?!
SO, BREATHE A BIT! SIGH AND CRY!
FOR-IN-OUR-FRIDGE, THERE’S STILL-SOME-HUMBLE-PIE! 🙂 -leftover form last night!!
