Charms


A life charm, a heart charm
Can potion your senses like truth.

A charm can keep you from harm
If you believe in it, like yourself.

There are dog charms. Rabbit foot charms.
Rosary bead charms. Zodiac charms.

Do you believe in luck?
If so, you'd better wear a charm.

Albatross it around your neck.
Stuff it in your socks, pin it in your hair,

Or tassel it in your car— as long as it
Stays with you, be nice to your karma pet.

There are keyboard charms. Light bulb charms.
Guitar charms. Thunderbolt charms!

The holy water charm prevents the vampires
From biting. What a charm.

The restroom, and deer in the headlights
Charm are expensive, but serve their purpose.

There's a tech 9 charm, and tugboat charm
To sail the nefarious seven seas,

As the constitution, and Statue of Liberty
Charm defends the meaning of peace.

What kind of charm do you own? A dolphin
Charm? A happy face charm? A beer charm?

A clock charm? The dollar charm? Whisper
It softly in my ear. Your secret is safe with me.

I carry mine in my left pants pocket,
And feed it carrots, and grapes.
