“SHOPPING FOR THE BEST DEAL!” a poem. August 6, 2018 (Monday)
Since time Immemorial, we’ve just been looking for the BEST DEAL,
To explain: this revolving life that we call THE WHEEL!
In Buddhism, they even make reference to “the hub,”
Around which everything revolves! The Beatles? – chose-a-yellow-sub!
The Jesus story is better than birthday cake;
Just have FAITH – for goodness’ sake,
And-you’re HOME FREE – Whoopee-doo!
The Jews think – it’s more up to you!!
Anyway, Tao-ism’s-about-opposites-uniting – PRETTY NICE,
Just-BALANCE YOUR LIFE, accept sugar and spice –
And Islam, the path of Surrender,
Offers jihad*, a real mind-bender!
Confucius did teach about societal regulation,
Just excellent, but I don’t think you get much vacation!
And The Hindus, with gurus and meditation levitation,
Offers great yoga and breatharian inspiration!!
Just get out your big shopping cart these days –
You can mix and match – for your life to “raise!”
I guess – it’s really just about finding the best deal for YOU;
Or you can “chunk ‘em all!” That’s a path too!
It seems that EVERYBODY HAS SOMETHING THOUGH –
SOME PHILOSOPHICAL BENT,
Because it seems that every human – comes with a defect or a dent,
EVEN THOSE who like to declare:
“ I AM perfection, Honey Bear!”
HUMANS! Ya gotta love ‘em, or you can shoot ‘em for sport,
ALL THESE IDEAS F A D E ON THE TENNIS COURT!
IF I lose that loving feeling and go empty and dry,
Please let me rest my head in your lap, Honey,
FOR I’M GONNA NEED TO CRY! 🙂
- actual or spiritual or both! 🙂
