A Corporate Life Part 1


Good evening
I write for a living
Or describe and think
With a visionary zeal
And talk
God I can talk
With nuance and structure
Jack Parlance
With aural posturing
If I go up

I'm good
If I go down
I'm shot like a duck
On the wing in a living room
My mates cascading before me
Clay and pigeon

And if I don't know what to say
Then I make it up
With a tangibility of possible
So the listener is perturbed
By the soothing artefacts
Of war and fortune

If we go up
We live free
If we go down
Then it's a life of solitude
And incense
Of puppies and wifey

How good could that be

Poem of the Day

poet Sir Walter Raleigh

EVEN such is Time, that takes in trust
Our youth, our joys, our all we have,
And pays us but with earth and dust;
