Living with Abandon

Today I'll light up a cigarette
To hell with the asthma
I have never smoked in my life
but I'll smoke it like I missed it

I shall then watch a movie
One that I've watched a million times
and I will enjoy it
Listen to a Bob Marley track
And swing my head to the beat
Call up my girlfriend;
tell her that I miss her

I will groom my cat
While basking in the sun
I'll have white coffee with an old friend
And her husband; congratulate them
On her pregnant status
I will smile at the sky and hold my hands to the breeze
Submit my paper dreams to the universe
And tell her 'Take care of these! '
I'll toast a tot of water to the dead
and the yet to die
I shall ask for God's forgiveness
and wisdom from up high

I will have a nice day
I will not think about my boss
who I am bound to see tomorrow
Something I dread about my job
I am going to live in the moment
The minute, this life!

Poem of the Day

poet Alfred Edward Housman

The time you won your town the race
We chaired you through the market-place;
Man and boy stood cheering by,
And home we brought you shoulder-high.
