Firemen Fight Rekindles

There were idols from the past,
Who put on a very good show…
Leaving hopes to fade into the past;
Years with answers we’d never know.

Meanwhile there were decades,
Where I celebrated every day…
I thought I could die tomorrow,
Completely happy, with death Okay.

I appreciated nightly sunsets,
Every flower and the red of dawn…
Also the darkest windy days;
The twenty rabbits on my lawn.

Still all these decades later,
You still occupy my every thought.
So many ruses and betrayal,
In all your lies I bought.

Your attempts to rekindle old fires,
Immediately rekindled the old magic…
Reality suddenly grabbed my ear,
Reminding me, your moods turned tragic.

It’s nice to see you reaching out,
To old friends from the past…
Reaching back for five decades proves,
For years, you’ve come in last.

Whatever Life Pulls From the Well

No one knows what tomorrow may bring,
It’s whatever life pulls from the well.
Some find days of glory,
Others find years of hell. 

Coin tossers at the wishing well,
Often pull up an empty pail…
Life isn’t based on magic,
So many pipe dreams fail.

Rain storms offer the best lightening,
Coldest days, the clearest views…
Winter the harshest darkness,
Yet Sunrises bring the greatest news.

Tomorrow holds untold promise;
Secrets the future will never tell…
Daily we wake up thirsty,
For whatever life pulls from the well.

Cat Lovers Beware

Cats have little loyalty,
They convert us into tools.
Freeing them from the need to hunt,
Now we’re servants and their fools.

Cats watch you clean their litter box
While planning takeovers of the world…
They laugh while you grab paper towels,
To pick up every hair ball hurled.

Cats want no human contact,
Unless you yearn to be alone…
They wake you when alarm clocks fail,
So they have privacy in your home.

If you die of natural causes,
They move next door…new ploy.
Suicide is their favorite,
As you become their favorite toy.
