“WHAT IF?” a poem October 19, 2018 – FRIDAY!
IF life is so trivial – just about what we can and can’t eat and drink,
OR – about how much “That person annoys me!” – or about always being “on the brink,”
Of financial ruin OR loss of face OR NEEDING to be – here or there – OR – about WINNING this Amazing Race!!
OR – about being concerned about what a bunch of bozos do,
Like judges, politicians – and you know who!
IF LIFE IS T H A T TRIVIAL, WHAT’S THE BIG DEAL?
BUT! What if life is NOT about that stuff, but – about GETTING REAL?
And – discovering – YOU! and ME! and LOVE – & marmalade – candy!! and- getting a bit “RANDY?”
AND – finding a little kitten, caught in The Wall,
Who’s squealing – and needs a friend! WILL YOU HEED THAT CALL?*
AND KNOCK THE WALL DOWN?
Even if it costs everything The World is dangling before your nose?
Will you open YOUR eyes –
& Tell me you love me
& stop all this folderol –
And do – WHAT I SUPPOSE!**
* – and cry, just a little bit, HERE!! 🙂
** – You WON’T!! – OR WILL!! 🙂 – alternative ending: And Blow My Hose!
