Stay Focused


don't you just love
people who can stay cool
and focused on the job?
That's what the world needs
People who keep their minds
steady on the job at hand

See, you call the doctor
and the receptionist answers
says she can't fit you in early
'How about 2 weeks from now,
say Friday? '
'That's 16 days from now, ' you say,
Petrified. 'But I could be dead by then.'
'Oh, ' says the receptionist
right on task, cool and focused:
'Your wife can always calls us
and cancel the appointment'

don't you just love
people who can stay cool
and focused on the job?
That's what the world needs
People who keep their minds
steady on the job at hand

Poem of the Day

poet Robert Frost

Some say the world will end in fire,
Some say in ice.
From what I've tasted of desire
I hold with those who favor fire.
But if it had to perish twice,
