David Floren

Thing

Life is rich with such variety.
Makes me itch with much anxiety

For liberal action.
For impact and traction

I'll cling to excess,

Not redact like a
Reactionary canary,

Picking bones with pith
In a dreary ossuary.

    I agree, Tai Chi.
    This one doesn't quite flow.
    Pardon me though. You see,
    It was written long ago.
