“PREPARATION” a poem September 13 2019 (Friday)
IT’S ALMOST TIME TO W(H)INE AND DINE, ] Lots of PREP TIME shall be mine.]
PutOnMyBestFace for THIS TIME, ] For I WANT it toBE sublime,
APPROPRIATE and PROPER, see, ] WHEN FINISHED, feeling GOOD for ME,
Is CRITICAL and very needed; I donotwannabe UPSET or out seeded.
A cool look; a calming stare; I WANNA WIN The Teddy Bear,
That Will be MY prize If I can en-dure, Perhaps2Hours NoMore NoSir.
Just LUCID IL-LUMIN-ATIONS with some GRACE; I need a calm look on MY face.
No twitching, itching, shakes or chinks IN MY ARMOR, for that really stinks.
I WANT TO INTER-ACT AND GROW & be come bet ter don’t YOU KNOW.
And I hear (him/her) NOW; am I ready? TO DEAL WITH ISSUES VERY steady,
And THEN A SMALL DOG COMES INTO VIEW;
“Well, now, what am I to do with you?
I was EXPECTING something else DANG, am I EVEN READY NOW?
I WAS expecting an old, black cow.”
But, instead, this miniature Doberman walks right in,
And tells me that I me I am steeped in sin;
No, suddenly, (s)he tells me I HAVE NO SIN AT ALL.
Well, DANG which is it? WITHOUT A BOX I CAN NOT HAVE A BALL.
The little dog just sits a while, ] AND then sug gests that we reset the dial;
“DIAL to DISCOMFORT, if you wish to grow;
Complacent things are DEAD, you know.”
Well, this RILES ME UP, so I say: “What do you mean?
I WANT TO BE A CALM POOL, and I have WORKED to preen,
MYSELF MYSELF for our dis course.”
“Well, why not drop the pretense,” says pooch; “BUT of course,
YOU CAN ALWAYS BE READY WITH AN EGOIC GLEE,
But WHAT GOOD IS THAT, if the ego will JUST BE,
And agreeTO calm, nice, pleasant and dull?
The ego LIKES PEACE AND EASE, and does not like to feel any pull.”
Moral: So the EGO likes to PREPARE AND read a book, AND follow the procedure[s] with an expert look. And remind everyone of how far (s)he has gone, AND hopefully we are not SO FAR GONE that we believe THE EGO’S CON.
