“Of Course”

“Of Course”

Of course you’re slightly disconcerted, you should be. Now
That you’re alive and well and thriving,. . . how
Else should you be?
  …after all, you’re really here….
You know;  a little here and there will never hurt,
And if you’re good at what you do, the benefiits assert
Themselves and sooner or later, we all get the point
. . .of knives and forks and spoons placed clearly on the table
When your but’s are in a basket and your no’s are out of joint
With the seasons and the people, and aliens that crawl
Through pipelines, conduits, and everything in the air ducts maul
The lungs because the filter’s often worse than what’s in the air.
Yes, well, someone’s never mentioned this and nor cared
Enough to remove the label when they had the chance,
The thing’s still  breathing; price tag thus, and at first glance,
The truth is just as obvious and nothing short
Of brilliant, worthy of  protection, worthy of report
Amongst the ever might-have-been’s.
But then the backfire and the stall, the mid-flight
Process includes a message from the pilot, “Don’t tell a soul
But we’ve already landed,  nor in bronze or silver, but solid gold.

    I like it.


    • After being immersed in Ruhi Book 8 for weeks, now, what else could I write? It’s been one of those weeks…. The dog’s predicament says it all….and what it doesn’t reveal, of course, is just how in Hell that dog got into that position. Either he’s got to be the dumbest dog alive or, worse, he was placed there by his master, or…perhaps both, and frankly, at times this week, I had the same thoughts about myself.
