Consequences ~ Photo by Patrice

There are no rights
No wrongs 


To live with, to abide by

Choices are made, lives changed
Right or wrong 

Makes no difference
For you live with

Fruits of my labour 
Seem to be 
I didn’t

Maybe tomorrow
I’ll be 
In the midst
Of another day 
Straight from

A Little Mess Was Made

May 2, 2018

A little mess was made
And yet the consequences
Were not staged

They came in rolling waves
Bringing pain
Then peace

Breaking on the cheek
Grinding all the way
To aching, hurtful feet

Not sure what to do
Comfort, scold or
let be, let do

The consequences
A little mess is made.

Yeah, Yeah

March 25, 2015

Yeah, yeah
Is what I say
To everything today.

Sordid, angry, no patience, no way
Yeah, yeah I’ll be better tomorrow
Or maybe the next day.

See no joy, no harm in any way
Just down
It’s a yeah, yeah kind of day.

Blessed I guess, cause I can have
A Yeah, yeah day and no trouble
Consequences come my way.

Must find goodness, find a way
To see happiness
In a yeah, yeah type of day.

Storybook Telling Storybook Ending

November 7, 2011

Storybook telling, storybook ending
Endeavor to know the lines so well
The costs are dear
The consequences many
Join the ranks
Of the countless enemy
Foe to foe bring it on
Marry the rule
Continue on
Yours to tell
Mine to listen
Storybook telling
Endless ending song.

Why should we know?
Why should we be
Here, in the land
Of no beginning?
Sally forth
Muddle through
Storybook telling
In the midst
Of a storybook ending

You are right
I was wrong
Not so much starting
But feeling the throng
Of that very sad ending
That untold ending
In a storybook telling
Of so long ago
Endless, ending song.
