DARKER THAN LIGHT

I HOPE TO GOD THEY’RE RIGHT

“Mostly this we have of God; we have man.”
–Walt Whitman

“Allah akbar!” “God is great!”
And the thrall is….so is fate.

“Bonis Dominus!” “God is good!”
And the thought is….well He should.

“Eikh anu yod’im?” “How do we know?”
And the thing is….men say so.

JUST THINK

Truth is not tamed;
Loose ends abound.
The more it’s claimed,
The less it’s found.

One life to learn
What life’s about,
And yet we burn
Our one-and-out.

You’re bound to grow
Before the end?
Time races so.
Good luck, my friend.

COME TO THINK OF IT

Old age is a sad estate;
With it comes wisdom,
But it comes so late.

Now recall artless youth:
Ignorance was bliss,
But less than truth.

Why can’t life be in reverse:
Born knowing the score,
Blameless in the hearse?

IT’S ME AGAIN

O, to be a celebrity,
With naught to do but celebrate me.
There’d be no more writing poetry
For free for but the few to see.
An idol to the inane I’d be –
A lion of media-ocrity.
Unfortunately, or fortunately,
The masses want asses bigger than me.
