“MR. KIM’S DISCOVERY!” a poem. a.k.a.: “A Lesson in Alchemy!” July 16, 2018 (Moon Day)
Aloysius B. McKim was searching for The Answer,
To gain Eternal Life – He was a real “prancer,”
And a lonely, searching, tortured boy,
Expressing-notions: of Love-and-Joy,
To turn base metal – to purest gold!
He labored long – and was quite bold,
And, at life’s “end”(?), he happened on,
The-pot-of-gold, he’d finally won!
His secret – was Tao-ist, Chinese yang – yen,
So, IF you wish The Gold, my frien’,
OPPOSITES MUST BE REPAIRED;
Then, aging process (pause) can be “bared?”
Al Kim’s secret? Find-a-mate,
And, if you do, Love-of-her-and-her-to-him,
Reverses time!! You court “your whim!”
Then ageless love is yours, Oh Boy,
BUT – Don’t-you-look, you-little-toy:
YOU JUST RELAX, and SMILE and SIGH,
Hoping that you will not die,
Before you happen-upon THAT ONE!
ALCHEMY! IT’S SO MUCH FUN!!
Become PURE GOLD; your Best Friend too!
THANKS, AL KIM – for-what-Al-kim-ists DO!
