Another Hero

Yeah, we need another hero.

Thrown up to greatest heights.

And while up there doing hero things

Well, I hope they’re wearing tights.

They talk about the branding

Treat them like a sage

And if they generate lots of cash

An award from Advertising Age.

The rest of us, just audience.

Targeted or not

Destined to remain in place

In our own small slot.

Don’t bother talking

They don’t want to hear.

Our professional hero is…

The Book

Last night the veil was pulled back

‘tween this world and the next.

And as I walked that hallway

I spied this ancient text.

In this dusty book was writ

Things past and yet to be.

Showing all that may yet happen.

Crafted by you and me.

Turn the pages to the future

Or back there to the past.

If we chose to stay this course,

This world of ours won’t last.

We’ve given up our power

To those who think they lead.

And for…

My Father's Dog

Haven't had a whole lot of time in the last two days.  My poem entry from yesterday is Haiku....Gesundheit

Father's dog pulling

running through poison ivy.

I'm not wearing shoes.

The Wind

The wind came through here last night

It brought along the rain

To stir up some old spirits

And perhaps remove some pain

It started in the back there

In that small group of trees.

By the time it blew to my door

It was much stronger than a breeze.

The wind came through here last night

Whistling through the eaves.

Stirring up the grasses.

Whipping through the leaves.

It woke me after midnight.

It blew against the door.…

A Letter To Me At Twenty-four

A note to me much younger

From my older self

First of all, those things you do,

Don’t leave them on the shelf.

A letter to me at twenty-four

From a much older me.

Maybe I was sixty,

Or maybe eighty-three.

I’ve seen all of the sketches.

Then the things you paint.

Don’t ever leave that stuff behind.

Don’t let those songs grow faint.

Don’t ever stop your searching

Even when you might get burned.

Never lose the call to…

The Efficiency Expert

You didn’t see him coming.

There wasn’t any news.

You’ll know him by his outfit.

Black suit and high brown shoes.

There was no official memo.

No meeting after lunch.

But, I think you know what’s coming.

I think you have a hunch.

I’m standing at my station

Looking down the line.

Some workers look uncomfortable

Others seem just fine.

Tony and Rob are nervous.

They’ve been here nineteen years.

Annie in the office…

The Old House is Still Standing

Something from yesterday...

The old house is still standing

A new family lives there now

The old house is still standing

I should forget, but don’t know how.

The old house is still standing

Still a porch there with a screen

We used to sit there,

Now it’s painted green.

Some trees we planted flourish

Others have been cut down.

The old house is still standing

at the corner of the town.

I try not to remember…
