Earthly Thoughts (Part One: Prelude) ©
golden guineas or green dollars -
is it ALL we really think of?
make planet turn; man created
pie and bar charts!
Thank God, oxygen is still free!
Hard - on,
horizontal or just upright;
don't touch that switch, why do we hide?
Adam and Eve in a beehive,
make our heads swing to near meltdown...
we've rocketed to 7th floor,
might need a lift to go downtown.
below 6 feet or in the sky -
is that really WHAT we fear most?
In this cosmic cycle of life,
we're like children before ogres;
forgot to pay my insurance (!)
Heaven's sliding on a tight rope
makes me feel cold...
poets leave at first light.
