A to Zen

Always be an avid admirer of art
Always blaspheme the blasted bigot
Always count the calm caresses
Always debate the damning defect of duty
Always eject eminent eejits
Always find and forge fine friendships
Always get god to go away
Always have harmony handy
Always investigate illogical ideology
Always jump on jaggy judges
Always kiss Celts in kilts
Always love, laugh, live, learn
Always make memorable moments
Always negate the negative newscast
Always be open to offers obscure
Always appease a ‘pretty please’
Always question a quizzical quarrel
Always return a rude raspberry
Always stalk with stealth
Always talk with truth
Always use the universe unselfishly
Always vocalise vibrant voices
Always weave a wondrous web
Always excoriate exasperating xenophobes
Always yearn for youthful yesterdays
Always zig-zag to the zenith with zest and zeal

Poem of the Day

poet Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

I heard the bells on Christmas day
Their old familiar carols play,
And wild and sweet the words repeat
Of peace on earth, good will to men.
