Intend Uh-Oh! - Poem by Edward Iacona

If one wants to improve their life
There is no need to grouse or curse
All one needs to do is harness,
The power of the universe.

Be in on the public secret
And have your star on the ascension,
Just master the mysterious magic
Of “Attraction” and “Intention”.

There are books and seminars
That will help get what you want.
Follow the instructions and your life
Becomes like a buffet restaurant.

According to the advocates
There is nothing that encumbers
One from getting a parking space
To the winning lottery numbers.

Those that professionally preach this thought
Can live in the land of milk and honey
While their followers intentions may come to naught
They have found their secret to making money.

I walked in meditation for a lovely life
So clear in my minds eye view,
When dog’s biodegradable offense became
A metaphor attracted to my shoe.
