And what I have seems second-rate,
The things I want to do I can’t,
And what I have to do I hate.
Poetry month is almost over and i barely wrote a thing.
Been too busy working the rhymes to bring.
*Sometimes you have to talk Yoda to make a rhyme work.
April comes at last
Bringing warmer weather and April showers
Listening to the rain on the roof
I think of May flowers
Mayflowers bring pilgrims
And April is also Earth month
When people take the time to be a little more conservative
With their utilities and talk of saving whales and such
And April brings Easter or this year it was in March but still
April brings Springtime when the clocks change and
The weather gets nicer and Spring is a time of renewal
When people take a look at their life and set goals to make important changes
Some of which occasionally get changed
And April is also National Poetry Month when poets get a little more attention than usual maybe
And when the world stops to listen
And maybe even clap
Maybe shed a tear or snap their fingers in approval
Maybe feel something special that they havent felt in a while
And love it and maybe just maybe they want to bookmark that poem and come back to read it again someday
Just because they love the way it makes them feel
Or because it makes them think of something important that they need to do that they had forgotten about for a while
Maybe a poem can touch a heart
Or touch a soul
Or turn a head
Maybe it can make people stop what they are doing for a bit and listen
And maybe it can change the world
Happy Poetry Month mes amies.
its Earth month. a time to look at the world you live in and fix something that is wrong. we do not have to stand idly by and watch it all go down the drain. there is something you can do. one person can make a difference and not just today. not just this month. but everyday. every month. try to find some way to make the world a better place.
change that light bulb to a more efficient one. cheer up that neighbor who is having a bad day. give those old clothes you are not using to charity. vote out that war monger who refuses to care how many people he hurts. make a difference every day and lets turn every day into EARTH DAY.
TAKE A MOMENT to take your head out of the ground.
turn off the TV and look around.
the world you live in is falling apart
the world you need
the one close to your heart.
do you really care more about a ball game
than about having a home or a country or a name???
do you stop to think about all the innocent lives
being slaughtered daily?
someones husbands and wives?
someones children and grandkids they will never see again?
someones next door neighbor?
someones best friend?
is life so meaningless that no one even cares ???
we have turned the world into hell,
and we are all living there.
what do i care who you marry? more girls for me. i mean really if you want something to fight about, fight about something that matters. fight about how congress has not done a damn thing about the economy or the price of gas. fight about how the banks and big pharma are destroying peoples lives. fight about how we should not be at war with each other. fight about something that fucking matters in the real world. what does it matter if your neighbors want to get married to each other? how the hell will that keep you from living happily ever after? live and let live. better they marry each other than marry someone they do not love and make it harder for the rest of us to find someone.
Today we salute u MISTER BALDING GAY SERIAL KILLER.
What better way to show him u care than 2 eat him in a stew with carrots and potatoes?
While others take their dates out to eat, u eat yours at home.
U get your workout by catching him before he smells the decaying head in the fridge and bolts.
No longer a truck driver, now u pick up dinner at the local gay bar.
Never 1 to waste, u give the neighbors left over “venison.”
Hitch hikers, runaways, hookers, u dont discriminate when it comes to dinner.
U give a whole new meaning 2 the phrase, “Eat me!”
