“GOODNESS – WHAT I BELIEVE!” a poem a.k.a.: “Just Don’t Eat So Much Chocolate (Pudding) That You Get Too Sick, OK?!” 11/30/18 – Friday!
I BELIEVE – in the bitter/sweet feelings – that “infect” us all;
Frail, fragile things we be – standing-behind-a-wall,
Of flesh and hope and desire, trying to break free,
And HERE WE ARE (TOGETHER) – INTO – ET-ER-NITY!
Our feelings? ARE ETERNAL! and we try to strategize,
To hold to those sweet things we have – and cover-up-with-lies,
The bitter, painful feelings – that-we-banish EVERY DAY!
We say: “Be gone, you vile fiends!” – and THEY are apt to say:
“But, Friend(s)! You know, without us (pause) you can-not appreciate,
Those things you THINK are sweet and good, with-which-you-saturate,
Yourselves-with! Come-on! Dance, YOUR DANCE, with ALL your feelings, for –
We’re-all-COMRADES – in this life, but LABELS have before,
Excluded us – from-THE-REINDEER-GAME!
Come-on-now – please-let-us-explain:
That GRIEF is shunned, SO – call it LONGING (pause) for-less-heaviness,
And ANGER’s-just:-INDIGNATION, responding to This Mess,
Which is: DIVERSE ROUGH-HOUSING! Doesn’t-that-sound-grand?
For-the (7)-DEADLY-SINS – are-each-a-misunderstood, last-ish stand:
ENVY’s also LONGING, to have the best in life;
GLUTTONY is LOVE – of the cooking – by your (loving) wife;
GREED’s-also LOVE to-have-and-hold, all-the-blessings in This World;
And LUST (my favorite!) – is playing-a-lot with-my-Sweetie, close & curled!
PRIDE is having REVERENCE, for all you say and do,
And SLOTH – is sleeping-in-sometimes – especially-when-you’re-”blue!”
When STUBBORN-NESS becomes: RESOLUTE
& NASTY?-is: SEXY SPICY,
Then FOOLISH people can-be-called: CARE-FREE,
And PORNO’s – just – plain DICEY! 🙂 – Kisses!
