Mika


over the years i have written many songs
not many were warm and loving
so many were dark and loathing
for you my friend and pet
will be comforting and cozy
it's hard to believe ten years ago
they sentenced you to death
i am sickened by the thought of this
you're truly my best friend
if the human race was half of you
we would not be as condemned
if the human race was a quarter of you
the world would surly transcend
if the human race was just a tenth of you
that would truly be a godsend
but yet in spite of all of this
they sentenced you to death
when will these people ever learn
that it's GOD we shouldn't offend
it's here he put these lovely creatures
so we could have real friends
ones that will love us no matter what
and never will offend
too love us unconditionally
not willing to impend
it's just so very hard to believe
that ten years ago or so
that you could have been completely removed
someone.... i never got to know
how very sad that would've been
for us so long ago
the gift they would have taken from me
never to have bestowed

Poem of the Day

poet Helen Hunt Jackson

The month of carnival of all the year,
When Nature lets the wild earth go its way,
And spend whole seasons on a single day.
The spring-time holds her white and purple dear;
