OUR FORMERLY WITTY SELVES

“You’re a wimp” said he

With Fire on his breath

His words were crisp

Like the crackle of death

And my friend whose message

Of Ooh La La

Became instead one of Oom Pa Pa

and said “Yes”,

To the voice of his Alter.

Not once did he dare to falter.

Identified then as an arrogant prick

He wasn’t really (Perhaps he is sick)

Of what (Who knows) could it be that he

Forgot who he was and thought he was me

(As usual in search of another Rhyme

I seem to have run out of time.)

Competitive spirit; the will of the weak.
Line item listings
Of Proof
Wasted moments of life without meaning
Uncomfortably long
Of tooth.

So where are they now; what purpose was served
What hope for the future
Survived?
Arms out. Now walk. Now jump up and down.
Replicate
Signs of Life.

Competitive spirit; Now tweaked with resolve.
Line item listings
Now gone
Service to Others; a life Now with purpose
Confidence second to
None
Life Now
Moving
Along.

ONLY TWO SIDES TO EVERY STORY? REALLY?

lee_broom

ONLY TWO SIDES TO EVERY STORY? REALLY?

Why only two opinions to every issue?

Why only two political parties?

Two genders?

Why only left and right?

Right and wrong?

Good and bad?

Green and ripe?

I prefer  red white and blue,

Words that rhyme with orange,

And  twenty kinds of potato chips.

Kissing the lips of the women I loved and

Every kind of candy imaginable.

Uncomfortably Long of tooth.

So where are they now;
What purpose was served

What evidence Did  survive?

Competitive spirit; no more to be seen.

Service to Other; a life now with purpose
Confidence second to None
Life again moving Along.
