HAPPY BIRTHDAY!” a poem a.k.a.: “Are You Ready?” a.k.a.: “Treat Others EVERY DAY As If It Was Their Birthday Every Day!” August 11, 2019 (Sunday)
Are you READY – for “The Second Coming?”*
Are you read to go and fight?
Are you ready – to be “BETTER” in your life,
Ready for a “good sleep” tonight?
Are you ready? to-get A JOB? A HOUSE? and/or A CAR?
IF you’re-READY – for “The-Good-Life,” why-are-we-sitting-in-this-bar?
For, IF you want-to be ready FOR ANYTHING, my Friend,
Just: DO “GOOD” now – up-until when-The-Day-will-end!
For, ANY-READINESS YOU MIGHT HAVE, why not SHOW-IT now?
So, SMILE! Speak-well-of-others! Yes! THAT, my Friend, may-be-how:
YOU CAN-KNOW – YOU’RE-TRULY-READY FOR-ANYTHING THAT MIGHT COME!
AND! You-MIGHT-say -a-nice-little-prayer-for-someone;
Then, you ‘ve-no-reason -to-ever-feel-anxious-or-glum!***
* – Christian theology contends there will be a literal return of Jesus of Nazareth, “The Christ,” soon, and it has held that faith for nearly 2000 years. IT MAY HAPPEN! However, as Donald Trump, another “Christ-ed Fellow” contends: “People have short memories; therefore, you can keep they waiting (almost) FOREVER!”**
** – at least, relative to campaign promises! i.e.: Maybe NEXT TIME!! 🙂 – Yeah!
*** – According to very ancient texts, Jesus Christ’s favorite expression was: “OTHERS, LORD; OTHERS!”
“Respecting the needs and feelings of others and keeping them safely in ‘your charge’ is a great way to live a good life!” The Mystic Poet
