“POISONOUS EXPECTATIONS!” a poem for Friday, August 24, 2018 a.k.a.: “Immune Systems- ON!”
Protection-from-elements that doth abide;
They’ll protect you – from deep inside;
YOU! need protection! from-little-ol’-YOU!!
With adequate protection, we never will “stew!”
We’re a bunch o’ cancer, but BALANCE CAN PREVENT,
Us – from seeing – that we’re amazingly-“bent,”
And TWISTED, SISTER – We ALL really are!
Let’s buy ourselves – another car,
And drive, ‘til-the-newness-flies-AWAY,
THEN, TRADE IT IN ON A BRIGHT NEW DAY!
I PROMISE YOU, some roses-on-the-stem,
And, within-a-year, NO FEARS! Amen!
And, within 6 months, all-you’ll-ever need,
WILL BE IN YOUR POCKET! Yes! Indeed!
Let’s be IMMUNE – to expectations,
It’s OK-to-have (pause) ½ rations,
For I AM NEVER GONNA EXPECT,
YOU! Here-again!* So-you-can’t-infect,
Me, with-these splendid future notions,
A diploma from college! THEN! We’ll cross oceans,
(RIGHT AFTER GOING TO GRADUATE SCHOOL)
THEN! You ain’t possibly nobody’s fool!
BUT!- Before that wonderful ocean cruise,
FIRST! Get married! and-pay family dues,
I PROMISE YOU!!!!
“My hearing is DIM, from this buzzing of bees!
I’ll expect; I’ll expect – what’s here and there,
RIGHT NOW, SWEETIE – For I don’t care,
About tomorrow – or future plans,
I LOVE OUR PRESENT, WHICH-IS-IN-OUR-HANDS! 🙂
- but I can always HOPE, by golly! 🙂
