The Wisdom Keepers

Be quick
Be nimble
Don’t get so sick
Where You can’t use a thimble

Pray often
But keep it moving
Don’t let your brainwaves soften
‘Cause there’s a lot to be proving

You’re expected to sit still
Stay in your place
Just take your blue, pink or white pill
And put a smile on your face

Why should You wear your heart on your sleeve?
You paid a lot for those achy bones and laugh lines
Old Age tries its best to deceive
With hefty penalties and fines

So, let’s call out those who say, “You Can’t”
and those who say, “No”
Your body, mind, and soul is like a Plant
It also needs a little nourishment to grow, and grow, and go

Where I Must Go

Wake up in the morning

I love to kiss your forehead

Today, tells a new story

It’s good you’re still in bed


Make the coffee

Before I butter some toast

Shouldn’t be so strange for me

When I know you do it most


I made a vow

Because I love you so

To keep you safe and happy somehow

So only you know where I must go


Working a simple nine to five

Is the least I can do

To keep this love alive

You loving me and me loving you


When the work is done

After the calls and deals are made

It’s back home to where I am someone

Making sure my debt is paid


You’ve been right by my side

Having my back in every way

You’ll never know the heavy ride

I must take every day


But that’s the least I can do

To show you I love you so

Someone’s blessed me with you

That’s why there’s somewhere I must go



Major Mental Crime

Uneven little boys


and their uneven little toys


battle every day


every night to keep the bad men away


Determined to get their share


While somewhat playing fair


Basking in the sun


are the pure like a Nun


Quenching their cool thirst


‘til the moon rises from the dust


Other toys fascinate the brothers


seeking respect from their lovers


Even with ammunition


still arouses demolition


The playing field is uneven


for the uneven little boys


Though adding machines make some mean


storing wealth unseen but green


On white paper


one becomes the star caper


All Robbing Hoods


for self-fulfilled goods


Lonely at the top befalls the mighty


who has no one left to congratulate him rightly


One shot to make it


If you’re lucky, one shot to take it


All Men Are Created Equal


Whereas documentation warrants a sequel


honoring a cast minus any equally equal


The sun catches the light


and the moon holds hostage


the soul in plight


Patting pockets so heavy and packed


Boastful are those screaming to be jacked


Unevenly unequally little boys


Along with their uneven little toys


can never grow


when their growth counts down below
