“IS THE ROSE BY ANY OTHER NAME TOO SWEET?” a poem 30 Sept 2019 (Mon.)

The lemonade’s too sweet; the tea’s too strong;

There are too many seeds in the orange juice and OldKingKong,

is too hairy for sweet, little Fay Wray to consider marriage to;

I JUST DON’T KNOW WHAT NOW I can even do?

I know. I know. I’LL DO SOMETHING. I’m SURE that MIGHT work;

I will modify and alter, for I don’t wanna be [considered] “a jerk.”

I WILL CHANGE WHAT I DID TO MAKE IT RIGHT,

But WAIT. Despite my worrying late into the night,

About how to correct and how to modify an untenable situation,

I SUDDENLY REALIZED:

Without[REALLY]doingANYTHING, thingsWILLbeDifferent,

AllThroughout The Nation.

TRUMP, for instance, NEVER DOES THE SAME THING TWICE;

Even though people say: “He’s always mean,” sometimes he’s actually nice.

Even though Democrats say: “He DID IT AGAIN,”

HE COULDN’T POSSIBLY have, ’cause THE MOMENT WHEN,

He does ANYTHING, WHAT HE DID CAN’T BE REPEATED;

It’sA lawO’Nature: “ONCE YOU DO ACTION “X” IN TIME FRAME “Y,”

“X” & “Y” are GONE” FOREVER; so, I DON’T HAVE TO PLAN AND CRY.

So, IF the lemonade is too sweet today,

IF I serve it tomorrow “EXACTLY,” [asTheySay], “TheSameWay,”

IT WON’T BE, and so it might not be too sweet then.

THANK GOD,

I can relax and not try so hard. AMEN.
