That Flying Feeling

.

About a thousand years ago

as a child running wild,

we used to ride our bikes

for miles and miles

through the countryside

and down to the ocean wide!

What freedom was this

that today’s children all miss,

no such thing as congestion

of traffic or lungs

(not to mention crime where now

life is worth less than a dime),

we would trudge up hill

and soar down dale

for all the world like an eagle on wings

swooping low and sweeping high

shouting for the wind to carry

our voices up to God in the sky,

oh to feel again the joy we felt,

the immensity of our world and

the freedom to have fun in the sun!

Pasture

.

Useful up to a point

Then put out to pasture

Abandoned or sold for scrap

Rain-rusted tortured rotting

Buried in landfills or graves

Off with the old and on with the new

The motto of today implies

There’s a never-ending supply

Easy come easy go

Animal vegetable or mineral

Thirty pieces of silver should

Hold off the sheriff for a while…
