Relevant Poetry

    he was down on the floor with his lips to a glass Said he dreamed of a future that won't come to pass That he once strived to excel in a world so vast But why run a race when it's rigged and he's fixed in last Then he mused over life is a joke and he laughed That it is what it is and he's thankful for all that he has I said well let me just pose one question and ask If you just want what you have, then why are are you sad She was tripping on something that was laced in her tea And she was high as a kite when she said she could see Said we in the land of the free but no freedom grows And if we in a brave new world where'd the brave all go I said, hell if I know Then she told me that the problem is the society Everybody crippled by anxiety No one is the person that they try to be Then she said, what we need are a few with a view that can bring a change through That we need less talk and more do So I said to her, what about you I was listening to someone give a speech Something 'bout the knowledge of enlightenment he reached And as my eyes glazed over in my seat He approached and he asked if he could challenge my beliefs I said by all means have at it Then he talked about the suffering and source of bad habits How the emptying of mind is the challenge And withdrawing from the world is the cure to all sadness I said that all sounds like madness Why have a life and then not be alive Why have a mind and then choose to be blind What you call wisdom is the fear that you hide You cannot retreat from those demons inside This is not peace, it's a mask you adorn This is not truth, it's a trap, nothing more And you're too busy running from something you can't ignore

    Continue writing, Garrett.

    I hope to exchange more words with you at a future time. These are acutely sharp, penetrating thoughts that you have intelligently framed.

    Thank you.

    Best regards.

    Relevant poetry I don't understand

    Relevant poetry isn't it grand

    Relevant poetry screams in the night

    Relevant poetry gave me a fright

    Relevant poetry falls from the sky

    Relevant poetry told me a lie

    I prefer haiku myself, only becaue my neanderthal brain likes very short poems.

    The "truth" is a sham
    How did all those years slip away
    How was I so blind

    I prefer Limericks-

    There once was a man named Tony,
    Who hates pants that squeeze mens' bologna
    He chose now to outline?
    With every witness online?!
    It was then I realized it's all phony

    I was shocked by the Royal Commission
    To see all of the dirt they were dishin'
    But then who knew,
    that it would all be found true
    That 'twas for boys that weren't men they were fishin'

    Hear the monkey scream

    grape juice from vending machine

    gulping sweetly down

    calm night on the road

    a vision among the stars

    U F O hovers

    now we need some limericks but I'm not sure CoCo will find this relevant

    There once was a woman who did pray

    But things never seemed to go her way

    So she stopped all that stuff

    And with god she got tuff

    And the skies are not cloudy or gray

    CoCo I can't resist I'm like a kid in a playground and this is the entertainment section

    "The truth" is what witnesses call it

    The watchtower? Crumple and ball it.

    Open your mind

    and soon you will find

    All they want is what's inside your wallet
