“SUFFER MORE TO SUFFER LESS.” a poem for Monday: December 2, 2019.
We suffer much needlessly, I OFTEN do think,
As we suffer”OVERthinking;” (So, where’s) “THE STINK?” (pause)
It may ONLY be lodged in our obsessive, little minds;
We’re even CONCERNED about [The State of] OUR BEhinds,
When there’s NOTmuch around to be concerned about,
We tendToNeedTo “INFLATE,” to satisfy our cravings and doubt;
WE JUST NEED SOMETHING REALLY TO “CATCH” OUR WORRY,
Like a bullet shot into the dining room; Then, for safety, we canScurry,
Into THE STUDY, where we’ve studied long,
To develop problems, soWeCanManageSolutions. Isn’t THIS WRONG?
To be: PRE occupied over things that really don’t matter?
OF COURSE NOT (LOL) Humans MUSTsuffer, eg.: “We’re FATTER,
Than we ought to be,” OR “The Color of This Dress is SIMPLY WRONG FOR ME,”
OR “There is a certain level of scum in the toilet bowl,
That CAN NOT BE TOLERATED,” So, we make it our goal,
To DEVELOP PRODUCTS that can kill and TOTALLYdisinfect,
Scour and clean AND MAKE simplyPER FECT,
Even with minute, unchangeable factors in our lives; * we MUST suffer ’til we realize:
There are no toilets (or sanitary systems) in many places OVER THERE;
& Some People are imprisoned &/or haveNOclothes; therefore, they’reTHIN & bare,
So, they really aren’t focused on: getting their buttocks to surgically “flair,”
OR “harping” upon things thatTheyGetSoWorkedUpAbout [that] theyMUSTcare.
Well, thanks to our “suffering” the toilet bowl products polluted all the water;
NOW, that’s something to SUFFER about, and Isn’t The Earth getting hotter?
But, of course, that’s something natural? so don’t be concerned, That the more we pollute, the more we get burned. That the more that we alter our bodies and soil,
The deeper we’re digging our graves, but don’t toil. Take long vacations; cruise on Holiday Lines, That travel the DIRTYoceans, betraying theSigns, OFmodern conveniences; it’s our GODgivenRIGHT to eradicate seals &killSnowLEOPARDS overnight. We’re a complicated blend of: “I hurt; I repair.”
OH, WELL, EVERYONE’S GOTTA SUFFER, youKNOW, suffer I GUESS;
Moral: “When things have been taken (far away) from any turmoil or mess,
We like to DEVELOP OTHERS THINGS upon which WE CAN WAIL & OBSESS,
So, sometimes you gotta suffer more (of what suffering’s really about),
Before you can SUFFER LESS.
