Old Age


Old age is a neat little trick
For people who never get sick.
But if you’re not well,
Old age can be hell—
As if you were hit by a brick.

Blue Monday: Global Friendship

IMG_9071
A mural in Stockton, California celebrates friendships around the world.
 


The hand of a friend may be brown,
Or maybe it’s white in this town.
Whatever the hue,
I know this is true:
A friend lifts you up when you’re down.

Aphorisms


 
Write your name outside the box;
Help your neighbor mend her socks.
 
If you use your white paint first,
Things will go from worse to worst.
 
Anything on page sixteen
Will remain, by Jove, unseen.
 
Sentences are like a thread
Leading to the living dead.
 
Letters written by one’s hand
Are most certain to withstand
All the ravages of time,
Quite unlike this awful rhyme.

Addiction or Fiction?


The gal in the 10-gallon hat
Has gotten exceedingly fat.
Is her addiction
Only a fiction,
Or is it more serious than that?

 
Limerick © 2018 by Magical Mystical Teacher

Reading Fiction


The fiction you read every day
Can mess up your mind, so they say.
But can it be worse
Than ludicrous verse
That no one will read anyway?

Blue Monday: Cross

Glendale Mem.Park.16 Jan.11 061 copy
An “old rugged cross,” Glendale Memorial Park, Glendale, Arizona.
 


Although the cross is rugged
And the grave is sere,
I come to visit often,
For my beloved’s here.
 
It’s not a chore to visit
Even when it’s hot,
For my beloved greets me
From his little plot.
