“WHAT JESUS R E A L L Y SAID TO THE DISCIPLES BEFORE HE TOOK OFF.” a poem for: October 30, 2019, the day before Halloween. [from Ancient Records.] a.k.a. “Set A Good Example; You’ll Start A New Tradition.”

“Well, Fellows, it’s a TERRIBLE THING to be alive, so take it from me:

LEARN TO HANG WITH YOURSELVES & DEAL WITH IT, or start a fam i ly;

You might find ya a mateAndHaveSomeKids, or, if your friend’s barren or unwilling,

Adopt ya some kids orHaveSomePets and ToYourLife, youWillBEfilling,

IN THOSE CORNERS, for ‘a complete (you know) meal fare,’

And DON’T THINK life’s a bed o’ roses, forItGoesUp&Down, withManyAcare;

Listen to them folks YA THINK might have a lick or two o’ good sense,

Although MOST PEOPLE are CAMEL SALESMEN, shrew & mostly dense;

Say to your Sweetie: ‘Yes, m’am’ A LOT, and don’t smoke too many ‘herbs,’

‘Cause OVERDEPENDENCE ON ANYTHING MAKES YOU STUPID,

Like ‘The Serbs,’

AND, if you’ve learned anything form HANGING with me, it’s thatNO ONE SHOULD ‘ORDER’ YOUR LIFE,

Even if you receive many orders from Your Pretty Wife;

Plus, your wife MIGHT NOT BE PRETTY always, so be a philo so pher;

Like me, KNOW thatSometimesYou’reCaughtInTheDesertWithAsATANIC OFFICER.

Rely on YOUR OWN set of values and views,

And that way guys, you will hardly ever lose,

Your PEACE OF MIND, which is VERY ‘key,’

To a HAPPY LIFE, and OH, Golly gee,

I almost forgot: ‘TRY TO BE KIND TO ALL,’

And DON’T attend the synagogues too much or The Rabbis will call,

And ask for donations, as much as you got;

GIVE JUST ENOUGH, but NOT ALLfor which they sought,

So you can take your family out now and then,

And TREASURE YOUR MEMORIES, guys; I hope ta see ya again.

PostPoemery: And, when Jesus did leave, it was Halloween’s Eve, AND He took Eve with Him, with a broomstick, if you can believe, ANDtheGuysHadtears in their eyes and a song in their hearts, ANDtHE HOLY FAMILY shouted (from a distance) “Merry ChristMas, y’all; beSure’N’support The Arts. AND later, back at The Base, The Apostles found some hidden gifts of kindNe(u)ss. SO, Big John said: “Let’s start A TRADITION called: ChrisCrissyMa(u)s, AND they all donned red robes, with their beards there aFlowing, AND they went out into The CountrySide givingLittleGifts,WithPipesReallyBlowing, AND children gathered ’round andWe swept clean each other’s chimneys or the hearth. AND THERE WAS GOOD WILL TO ALL, and BLESSINGS UPON THE EARTH.

Life is like a bunch of roses. Some sparkle like raindrops. Some fade when there's no sun. Some just fade away in time. Some dance in many colors. Some drop with hanging wings. Some make you fall in love. The beauty is in the eye of the beholder. Life you can be sure of, you will not get out ALIVE.(sorry about that)
