“A PLACE OF OPPOSITES.” a poem for: Tuesday, September 17, 2019
Sure. (pause) It’s A GREAT PLACE here;
It’s about OPPOSITES (like) LAUGHTER and a TEAR.
“I WANT THE GREATEST LOVE THE WORLD HAS EVER KNOWN.”
“YOUR WISH IS GRANTED.” (Be careful what you wish for, lest you moan.)
Now, I’M N O T SAYING “don’tGoForIT,
Just KNOW, if you grab for the choicest tit,
It MIGHT not have the best quality milk;
SHOOT FOR THE MOON sure, butHaveAtetherOfSilk,
Just in case you miss your wondrous mark;
THE BIGGEST, SAVAGE DOG (inTime) WILL HAVE THE WEAKEST BARK.
“I WANT GREAT LOVE.” Then, ready yourself for some nice heartbreak;
A Place of Opposites can be hard to take.
If you think you’re HOMEFREE at any point,
This is the: “IF YOU WANT GREAT PEACE GET READY FOR UPSET PLACE;”
Sure, you might come in FIRST – in any given race,
But IN THE PROCESS, A LEG MIGHT GET BROKEN,
Or you might only get a prize that’s only a token.
In other words: There’s a DOWNSIDE to what you think’s The Great(est) Thing;
Sure, GO FOR IT, BABY, but get ready to sing,
For your dinner, IF you want a good feed;
The one who follows BEST is also best in the lead.
The most stupid dolt is often the one to listen to;
“FROM THE MOUTHS OF BABES & IDIOTS WISDOM SHALL ENSUE.”
A BIG “UP” may lead to a great FALL,
And, if you keep bothering people on the phone, get ready forA DOOZY OF A CALL.
Moral: IF you find The Love of Your Life, the REAL ONE, for sure,
(S)he’s liable to be ON THE OTHER SIDE OF THE GLOBE; will you endure,
SUCHa LONG DISTANCE LOVE AFFAIR? (A:) OF COURSE YOU WILL, You Cad,
For, IF YOU DIDN’T PURSUE “THE LOVE OF YOUR LIFE,” YOU’RE A WHOLE LOT MORE THAN MAD. fin ♥
