OK! “LIFE IS SIMPLE!” a poem, written with simplicity and innocence in “The Age of Trump & Pence!” August 29, 2019 (Thor’s Day!) Life is really simple! For instance, you-can-just write-a-poem! * Write it in your yurt – or-in your humble home, * As you’re sitting on NO PORCH, of-your sustainable, organic pad, * Smile, so NO ONE has any idea that you have EVER been sad! * It’s simple! It’s cheap! If you ever get lonely – remember! There are always sheep! * Wandering in the foothills! waiting for a chance! * To kiss a human on the lips – and do a little dance! * And there are friendly (?) black bears that LOVE human company! * And love to invite them to dinner, inci-dent-ally! * Anyway, SIMPLE! Keep it simple, my simple friend! * And – Don’t mind those bulldozers! that are – here to see your end! * One word: EMINENT DOMAIN! * “But WAIT!” “NO! Let us explain: * You live HERE, in the midst of all these “thought-projections” you have created! * And NOW – you get to deal with it! Mr. Simply All Out-dated!” * I used to think that SIMPLE – was a simple thing to do, * But, then, My Darling! Yes, my Darling! Then-I-met the likes of you! * You who have NO BAGGAGE, yet we all (I guess) just forgot! * That-it-takes-a-bunch-o’-baggage-to-sustain-no-baggage!! So, MORE BAGGAGE THAN EVER HAVE WE GOT! * And, as the woodland creatures, hungry for a meal, * close-in upon my little cabin – I offer them this deal: * “If you fine creatures will humor me, and-just-eat my arms and leg, * And leave the rest of me – so I can writhe and SIMPLY beg, * I will be grateful, yes, and you can eat me leisurely, since I won’t struggle at lot, * Because I am a simple man, and I can use a hole, for, when you get done with me, I won’t need to use no pot!” fin <3
