“ABIDING WITH AND HIDING FOR P E A C E !” a poem a.k.a.: “Incorruptible Flesh!” August 5, 2018 – first Sunday in August!
She wants PEACE; she wants QUIET!
She wants CALM – “Stop this riot!!”
She-wants-IT-ALL; she wants it NOW –
Leave out the bad!
I ask her: “HOW?”
She says: “Just MUSH me – I want some HUSH;
KIND, LOW & SWEET; Be SLOW, DON’T rush!”
There is a calm, before The Storm;
Or, sometimes – AFTER! can be the norm!
A dual-istic – place have we;
Where shall we go? Dear Trinity?
Oh, Dorothy! Toto! LET’S-RUN-AWAY;
Escape tornadoes –
Comes for you!
IN-EVI-TA-BILITY – for Neo too!!
IF I could fly – and fight The Smiths,
Change colored sky –
DO YOU LIKE MYTHS?
There’re Bible Stories,
Koran assurance –
Let’s BEAT THE ODDS!
NO! These aren’t odds – they’re more like dreams –
Like seamless seams,
Like having cake – And eating too,
LET’S KEEP ON DREAMING – AND-ESCAPE-THIS-VIEW!
(BUT! You-like-the-view – you ooh and ahh; do you like ma? Do you like pa?)
“SHUT OFF THE LIGHTS; TURN ON A. C.!”
This’ll-surely-be, the death of me!
The PEACE! long promised – that passes all,
Understanding!! Is like THIS, Doll:
T O L E T T H E W O R L D – R O L L O F F Y O U R B A C K,
Just like some water! You’ll get “the knack!”
Sweet PEACE is-like:
Still waters? DEEP!
Monsoons? Are tolling!
Be like a duck! Let’s duck; don’t hide!
PEACE COMES; PEACE GOES – WE SHALL ABIDE!
🙂 -to be read AND FORGOTTEN, just like every other poem that gets put in this blog! OR! To be read and remembered! so escape-ism does not become the cornerstone of a miserable life!! and NO! this does NOT mean – activism! It means:
