A world full of darkness, desperation, tears, unanswered questions, phone calls with police, daily interactions with the public, and countless nights of nightmares and delusions. But the answers seem to be right there.

“THE WAITING GAME.” a poem a.k.a.: “We Just LOVE To Wait.” 12/09/19 (Monday)
Sometimes you get to wait for ALL YOUR DREAMS TO COME TRUE,
But, y’know, when you think you’re 20, or Twenty Two,
A LONG WAIT is: a year or (God Knows) three,
And YOUR DREAMS? Well, (at that age, how can?) they can seldom (be),
THAT GREAT, so wait (apparently) until you’re Fifty Five,
When THEN maybe you’ve had some “life experience(s),” and IT AIN’T NO “JIVE”
TO SAY (that): “You really haven’t lived very much until you’re Seventy Seven.”
So, IF all your dreams come true (apparently) aroundSIXTY,
You might be In Heaven;
Thus, if you can wait until you’re 60 or so,
You’ll be SO surprised that all your dreams came true, and you might (somehow) know,
That ALL YOUR DREAMS, all the REALLY GREAT dreams,
Don’t really come true until youKnow IT SEEMS,
That “The One True Love of Your Life,”
SHOWS UP, and you claim her as your wife,
And She’s been waiting since She was a little child,
For Her “perfect match” ALL THESE YEARS, and She’s JUST WILD,
About Harry or Bill or Jack,
Or who(m)everTurnsOutToBeHERperfectMatch, youKnow,
TheOneWho’ll”WatchHerBack,” And ALSO grab Her and kiss her strong.
SUDDENLY, it really doesn’t seem like She’s waited all that long.
However, sometimes you realize you DIDN’T (actually) WAIT, (pause) for time is a lie;
(Moral) “Yesterday AND Tomorrow is: The Blink of Your Eye.”
TOGETHER you’ve (always) been with your OneTrueLove all along; (pause)
Therefore, closeYourEyesALL YOUR DREAMS HAVE (already) COME TRUEsinceAllYourWishesAreGrantedALREADY, isn’t WAITING (just) pretty wrong?
Answer: NO, of course not; WE LOVE TO WAIT;
It’s “immediate WISH fulfillment” that we REALLY hate.
“So, young people: (Get) READY; SET; WAIT,
For YEARS or DECADES. WhatDoYouThink’boutTHAT? Isn’t waiting great?”
“Youth is NEVER wasted on the young very much.” The Mystic Poet
A Limerick, entitled: “When An Irresistible Impulse Meets An Overwhelming Urge.”
For TRUE LOVE, you don’t have to wait / The door gets knocked down, and your mate / Stands there with a grin, / & says: (pause) “I AM (pure) SIN.” / & you say: “You’re on time.” (pause) “NO, I’m late.”
“CANNIBALS, THE REAL STORY.” a poem? a.k.a.: “MEAT Me In The Middle.” “Viewer Discretion Advised.” December 9, 2019 (Moon Day)
In A Beginning WAS GOD, sitting there happily (and greedily) gnawing on a yummy fried pork chop,
And THEN Mrs. Claus came along, DEMANDING THAT HE STOP,
Saying: “You are a BARBARIAN; who do you think you ARE?”
“GOD,” He replied; (pause) “Well, you’ve gone too far,”
She said, “When you think you can just eat anything you please.”
So, She absconded with his yummy pork chop, which brought Him to His knees,
God said: “I’M SORRY; WHAT HAVE I DONE,
FOR IN EATING THAT POOR LITTLE PIGGIE, SINCE ‘WE ARE ALL ONE,’
I HAVE EATEN MYSELF, AND I AM, therefore, A CANNIB [A] L.”
From then on, She just brought Him dishes derived from The Vegeta ble,
Which truly was not too healthy for Him, although it was for HIS HORSE “NAG,”
Who was, like Mrs. Claus always “nagging” Him; anyway, he would BEG,
HIS WIFE (the Mrs.) for just ANY FLESHLY THING,
And, since She truly loved HIM, She offered herself; for God; much joy this did bring.
However, after He had dined (upon her) to his delight,
He would often fall asleep, AND on one spacious, cannibalistic NIGHT,
She yanked a rib bone out of His side,
And formed SATAN, who took Her as His bride.
You can see, at this point, the complexity of it all;
That is why The Genesis Account was VERYmuchABRIDED; eventually, Satan did call,
GOD a “cuckold,” a cannibalistic, old bird. (All this because God gave up meat.)
Satan, of course, ate everything in sight; He relished EACH FLESHLY TREAT,
Unbeknowst to Mrs. Claus, who loved to get her claws into Him,
Into SATAN, who eventually started the FIRM that sells theYUMMYjerky “Slim Jim.”
(Moral) Eat what your body wants; it knows what is best.
Eat vegetables now and then, but GIVE THESE DIETARY RESTRICTIONS a rest,
And REMEMBER: Your wife is “in league with any carnivorous, Devil man,”
Who will “fry her up” & cook some savory pork cutlets (or even beef) in a frying pan.
Limerick “Jesus Of Course, Was Also A Cannibal.” “You must eat my flesh and my blood,” / Said Jesus, (pause) “IfYouWannaBeMyBud.” / Otherwise, my Dear Dad, / Will be VERY sad, / And He’ll cry us an awful big flood.
