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
