Lost Poem

I had a poem but I let it go.

Into the great unknown where dead poems go.

Stillborn, not born at all, never ever to be.

Oh well, at least it was not me.

Next time, next time what will I do?

Write it down come rain or shine for you and me too.

That poem was to be called Curse, perhaps its better that it should never be.

But I don’t know, it could be worse, unwritten history.

Law

Nearly everyone pleads not guilty and nearly everyone is, almost all.

Can you believe a word they say at all?

They go by the letter of the law, the crooks.

Lawyers have read books.

The spirit of the law seems not to count.

Lawyers are paid a large amount.

Getting off on a ridiculous technicality when they are guilty as sin.

The law is an ass, when does your sentence begin?

One law for the rich and one for the poor, which ones mostly go to jail?

Don’t ask, that is another tale.

Arise

Can I transcend my origins and rise above it all?

As a lark in the clear air sing a song of small?

Oh that I could oh that I would and see things as they are.

Maybe some day I will be at one with my guiding star.

Objective

To be objective about yourself is not easy, so ask others.

Leave out mothers, fathers, sisters, brothers.

Ask the queen, the pope, choose your own guru.

Don’t ask you.

If you want to embark on a course of self improvement ask others what about you most needs to be improved.

Will their answer leave you unmoved?

I myself bought a guitar.

So far I have not got far.

It remains in its case.

Is that a smile on your face?

Editor

Editing used to mean using the right word and date and spelling and so on now it just means what font you use appearance on the page, sign of the times.

The truth in rhymes.

How things look not how they are.

Boy bands go far.

Caring how it looks instead of how it is, that’s showbiz.

Fake, fake, fake by people on the make.
