Everybody Counts - Poem by Jim Boone
Or Nobody Counts
History, taught or forgotten,
Does not define or excuse
What we do, or don't do,
To or for one another NOW.
We're all accountable:
The donut maker, the shopkeeper,
The trash collector, the cop and
Fire fighter, the Mayor, the
Homeowner and the homeless;
The entertainer, the ticket taker,
The audience, the stage hand, the
Fashion designer, the ‘Good Will'
Donor, the military man or woman,
The politician, the preacher,
the voter and the pew sitter.
Once we 'were' but now we 'are'
And yesterdays heavy fog doesn't
Account for going sightless
Through a clear and Sunny day.
SO, give a smile and a silent
Good wish to the image in the
Mirror and everyone you lock
Eyes with today.
Don't listen to anything 'they'
Say, just to what you know and
Feel from within.
The planet Earth is God's
Soul training Master Class and
Jesus was the most noted teacher
Before Buddha, Mohamed, Gandhi,
Martin Luther King Jr., Carol Burnett,
Johnny Cash, John F. Kennedy,
Bill Clinton, Marilyn Maye...
One lesson, spoken of, or
Demonstrated; sung about, poked
Fun at: 'Everybody counts or
