the right point--Or Else!

Rabbit left his mark
Inscribed on the stones
The public stones
He stood back
To survey his work
He was not sure
If he had gotten his point across
But he appreciated the comments
Left by the social butterflies

I’m definitely blogging this,
Rabbit said to himself.

How Do You Define Family...

Stepping out of the shadow
Cast by the television reports
Young people try to read
The signs
The old ones say
Slow Down
But the biology of youth sings
Hurry Up
Go, Go, Go
Dive in at the Deep End
Find out what it is all about
The activity is furious
The signals confusing
But life and love
Are never neat and tidy

A Little More A Little Less

Having a little less
The travelers come
Carrying the little they own
To a land that promises more
The locals have so much stuff
They seem overloaded and bogged down
Yet they scream at the travelers,
“How dare you come here?
To take what is ours!”
Meanwhile the unwieldy piles
Of excess possessions
Wobble and threaten to topple
A little more
