Where is the caution that we need

Like all the rules that we must heed

What’s happened to our sanity

Now drowning in profanity ?

Take care, my dear, we’ve just begun

The journey’s long and void of fun

Make sure that you do not lose sight

Of all the tremors of the night.

Remember when the fog rolls in

That each accepts his own chagrin

There is no cover one may choose

The answer is we all do lose !

Slowly, slowly, as years unwind

What kind of future shall we find,

Where are the endless ways we’ve lost

And who is left to count the cost

Oh foolish ones of no context

Please tell us what will be the next !

 

 

RETRIBUTION ( 2017 ) 2017/03/17

I have often pondered how it’s done

How life progresses aft battles won

Or how one knows when it is enough

As the road runs easy, smooth or rough ?

Who makes a choice either high or low

When the winds of life begin to blow

And how is it one comprehends

If the paths we follow know no ends ?

Is there a voice that but few may hear

To whisper softly into each ear

Take care my child as the way is steep

And the hole we dig may be too deep ?

 

 

 

 

 

KNOW-IT-ALL ( 2016 ) 2016/02/15

There is one fact that I observe

In friendships that we would preserve

If you speak somewhat softer now

T’would seem a better job somehow.

There’s no such thing as always right

There is but proper and polite

Try please to keep an open mind

For greater knowledge you may find,

There are some limits to recall

As none should be a know-it-all !

EXCUSE ME but I was raised with my mother’s familiar and oft repeated admonition that echoed Sir Walter Scott’s lines from his lengthy poem “Marmion”, you know the one, “Oh what a tangled web we weave when first we practice to deceive”.  In retrospect that simple homily is far more applicable today than it would have been in the Garden of Eden !  Quite an observation, eh ?  I encourage you to consider all of today’s headlines, storylines and psycho-babble, is this not part of that oh-so-tangled web ?  Lord, save us from the power of those who know everything !  I readily admit that I know nothing, I find that somehow comforting !  How about you ?                          Sincerely,                       Claire B.
