tom thump


I'd rather forget


the sad face of truth
is a bitter pill to swallow
oft it's something i avoid
rather'n face by myself

like a forgotten friend
you meet after the many years
and at the precise moment
you forget his name

oh sad oh sad the times
i get into these ones
and later i pick over my thoughts
to pick out that one name

and out it pops from nowhere in my brain
to pain me further
because it was no longer then

so I'd much rather forget
than remember that when
as in this now
when i missed a line back then

Poem of the Day

poet Robert William Service

Just Home and Love! the words are small
Four little letters unto each;
And yet you will not find in all
The wide and gracious range of speech
Two more so tenderly complete:
