Still looking to make a profitable contribution
out of bits & pieces of me & what’s mine
Signing on the dotted line
gives me some solid sense of security
yet feeds my apprehensions
for the life I lead shortens
day by day
Cup & Saucer
Tux & Gown
Glass & Mirror
Doors & Windows
God bless Eternity
We’re a most unusual pair, my Dear
livin’ – lovin’ – laughin’
all the live-long day
We’ve got the bull by the horns
together in fulfilling the plans
for our future & theirs
gathering our just rewards
A little fish swimming in a big pond
singing a tomorrow-song
& this I gotta tell ya
I’ll never be suckered again
always the victor in a calamity
Twisted plots in flux
amiable thoughts hit their mark
stark naked & on-point
answering to no one but god
& the golden pond
I long to be recognized for what I am.
Tell me more, for I don’t have total recall.
As the curtain falls on yesterday,
I ready myself for tomorrow’s action
chiseled by the hand of god.
Waiting for my past to catch up with me
– what, oh what, shall be?
Will I be familiarized with the details
you bear inside, your wildest imaginings
– your plan for eternity
as we live out our final days?
Or will I never regain knowledge of your mind?
