Thanks People!

This poem’s for the people

Who work lousy hours

Slaving away

For the “that be”-ing powers.
These rhymes are for tellers

And checkers and chaps

Who wear store-logo polos

And maybe ball caps.
This verse is for plumbers

And sellers of pot.

Thanks for doing your thing

So that I need not.

Condescending Tree

“Long skinny tree,
Tell what you see
From your vantage point
Up in the sky.”

“Well short human man,
I’ll tell if I can,
But I’m afraid
I don’t have any eyes.”

“So you mean to say
That trees go all day
Without ever seeing
Your beautiful view?”

“Yes indeed, I am blind
Just like all of my kind.
But at least I am tall,
Unlike you.”
