Opportunities & Bags

Sometimes

Life’s opportunities

Are as aggravating

And difficult to open

As those thin

Plastic bags

In the produce

Departments at

 Grocery stores.

Entombed

Out of the blue
I was invited to
A visit to the heart
Of the moon,
Who would have thought
It would be so hot
And freeze vision
And memory
Entombed.

Things We Believe In

 

It’s write a cheque

Get absolution

And you’re good to go,

Be part of the

One-hundred thousand plus

And you’re in the know,

If you miss the cut

It’s a thousand years of bliss,

After the rapture

It’s streets of gold

And easy living,

For some unlimited

Virgins,

A smiling song of

Things we believe in ,

Who knows if it’s

Right or wrong

But a great number

Of the throng

Once believed

In Santa.
