“PLEASE FORGIVE – FOR EVERYONE’S SAKE!” a poem. a.k.a.: “You Can NEVER Really Clean Up What You Have Done, But YOU CAN At Least TRY To Forgive Someone Who ‘Wrongs’ (?) You Because They Get Caught In Anger, For Whatever Reason(s)!” 🙂 – The Last Day of June 2018 = Saturday!
When Robert was a young pup, his mother got upset,
And tossed some scissors at him –
They clipped him hard, you bet!
Now that was quite a stingiE – one Robert wouldn’t forget!
It’s true that Ginny shouldn’t throw,
Stuff at Bobby – YET,
We say WE DON’T DESERVE IT!
STUFF THAT HAPPENS-TO,
IT DOES NO GOOD TO STEW!
I still think all things happen,
For a reason good,
And MOSTLY to forgive, forget – has-value,
IF you would!
And when sweet Margie got a pop – a phone tossed at your head,
By her longtime hubbie – IT COULD HAVE KNOCKED HER DEAD!
It was so unexpected! The trauma really flamed!
ON! – And, yet, the husband,
That he didn’t mean it; that he LOST HIS COOL,
WELL, WE DO SO MANY THINGS! WHO-CAN-FORGIVE-”THE FOOL,”
THAT DOES SUCH NASTY ACTIONS? ESPECIALLY-FAMILY,
The ones we HOPE we can depend-on – for-some-harmony?
I think these things are THE BEST TEST – to-determine-IF-we’ve-learned,
To forgive “our fellow man,”
For, when we get real-burned,
Because we have been ACTED ONE, in-a-most-horrific-way,
Well, for a moment, come-with-me,
We’ll-visit THE PRAYING MAN,
Who loved to pray and meditate –
On his bed – AND PLAN,
[How to get back at those folks, who had done him wrong,]
One day, The-Lord-came-to-him, TO HELP HIS PRAYERS ALONG!
“YOU PRAY YOU WANT TO S M I T E ‘THEM,’ AND YOU ASK ME FOR
M Y H E L P!
WELL, LET-ME-SUGGEST SOMETHING, MY PRECIOUS, LITTLE WHELP:
WHEN YOU DO WAKE TOMORROW, JUST GO THROUGH YOUR DAY,
AND EVERY TIME YOU’RE ‘SHORT OR MEAN,’ A TEAR ON YOU I’LL LAY,
AND WHEN THE DAY HAS ENDED, EACH TEAR WILL TURN TO URINE,
AND I WOULD LIKE YOU TO CLEAN UP – THE VITROL YOU’RE INCURRIN’!”
So, on that day, they SAW IT THROUGH,
Just like us all – WITH POOLS ON YOU!!
Exposing every thought and word which caused The Lord to be perturbed!
FROM ONE DAY, HONEYs – the urine’s ripe,
And it would take me YEARS TO WIPE,
THE STENCH, SEVERE,
From just ONE DAY, if-My-Lord-did-tear!
“I FORGIVE YOU A L L YOU DO,
BECAUSE I LOVE YOU VERY TRUE!
SO, PLEASE FORGIVE YOUR NEIGHBOR, DEAR,
EVEN FAMILY THAT IS NEAR,
FORGIVE MY CHILDREN,
AND MY RHYMES,
THAT MAY NOT SIT-WELL, (pause)
B U T P L E A S E F O R G I V E,
WILL SO IMPROVE, SO I CAN HEAR,
YOU! SO MUCH CLEARER;
PLEASE, MY DEAR! 🙂
