Mr. Fred's Poetry Corner: The Fulcrum, and the Lever

The Fulcrum, and the Lever

I only need two things, it’s what the seamen call
A new stack, and a new ship under the stack,
Some new hair, and then a new body to go
Along with it, that would set me up just fine,
But that would just be selfish, even I know that,
That kind of thing comes only in our dreams and wishes.

But selfish wishes, they can only cloud the mind,
Best to wish for simple things that can be done,
Simple things, not just for us but helpful to us all,
To recognize our talents, we all have those unique
To us, and find the fulcrum for the lever of our good,
The good that is our debt to god and to the world of men.

September 30, 2008, fast as hell, and just as serious
