“TRUTH SELDOM COMES KNOCKING!” a poem a.k.a.: “What Comes From Believing Everything ‘YOU?’ Think!!” October 1, 2018 – Monday
When things do not approach (for us) – close-enough to OUR IDEAL,
We’ll-get-in-a-panic-and-start-to-imagine: A REALLY “PERFECT” DEAL:
So, our strategies comes wild and quick;
Gotta get me to The Doc’s! I MUST be sick;
Gotta get me some money! (’cause) Finances aren’t “glowing;”
Gotta get me “Outta Dodge!” IF my weaknesses are showing!
One lady I knew – I think she got a “fender bender,”
&-was-devoid-of-satisfaction – unless the PERFECT vehicular-mender,
Would put her damaged vehicle – back in PERFECT CONDITION,
Like: “Right out of The Showcase!” “THAT’s your bloody mission!”
However! Once your car receives a poignant, precious “ding,”
I’m SO SORRY – but, Dear – It’s really hard to bring,*
The damaged or the older car – to-a fresh, fact-ory state;
Better get a new car, and do not be too late!
Or-you-could-settle – for-”pretty-good”-”better-than-average” or, maybe,
You can do it; you CAN do it – Please-my-Darling – Please be “mine!!!”
Accept the circumstances – of life JUST as they are,
Whether you take “the hit,” or have-enough for a brand, new car:
IDEALISM! PERFECTIONISM! Make it BETTER! Yes, galore,
Is why good women hate their bodies, like Zsa-Zsa-and-Eva Gabor!
And if things breaks down or don’t perform as – we might have expected,
You can – run to The Doctor – or to The Mechanic & some lawyers I’ve detected!
There’s so much GOOD DEPENDENCY(?) – to make all things IDEAL,
And many promises are made, but promises ain’t real!
You get-what-you-get, and I’VE SAID THIS (ALL)BEFORE:**
THERE IS NO PERFECTION HERE, if you define it at YOUR CORE,
And-your-CORE, which is quite perfect, IS IMPERFECT IN THIS WAY:
IT THINKS – you-can-make-materiality-perfect – It’s what Americans say,
Like Politicians, Lobbyists – and Lawyers and some Docs,
Many of whom like to lie too much! THE TRUTH! IT SELDOM KNOCKS!
Postscript: “So don’t be so convinced – that any thing is wrong; just close your eyes and feel my breath – we’re sure to get along!” The Mystic Poet.
* – Oh, of course, it’s possible, but, generally, NOT AROUND HERE!!! 🙂
** – Le sigh; le sigh!! 🙂

- No days such honored days as these! While yet
Fair Aphrodite reigned, men seeking wide
For some fair thing which should forever bide
On earth, her beauteous memory to set
In fitting frame that no age could forget,
Her name in lovely April’s name did hide,
And leave it there, eternally allied
To all the fairest flowers Spring did beget.
And when fair Aphrodite passed from earth,
Her shrines forgotten and her feasts of mirth,
A holier symbol still in seal and sign,
Sweet April took, of kingdom most divine,
When Christ ascended, in the time of birth
Of spring anemones, in Palestine.
