SOME LITTLE KINDNESS

Remembering a kindness

But have forgotten whom…

Was it a space  saved for us–

Could that be assumed?

Don’t remember what it was,

But oh–it was nice…

Something that someone did–

In clear sacrifice.

All I know is that it felt good,

A blessing to pass on…

Whatever you do in kindness

The blessing passes on!

WATCH YOUR BEAUTY—-I MEAN, DUTY!

WATCH YOUR BEAUTY–I MEAN, DUTY!

 

At work he’s tied to his desk,

And watches a moving burlesque…

That is better when warmer

Than a neighbor’s dormer,

What more could he possibly ask?

Not that anyone is BARE,

But there’s a lot of beauty there…

Curves exciting,

Proportions inviting

As long as one is safe, they don’t care.

Just one thing wrong with this scene,

The production for which he is keen…

Favorites can’t be pictured

‘Cause a no-camera stricture

Prevents photographing–that’s mean!

Each day it begins refreshed,

This well-appreciated vision addressed…

When favorites go by

They’re in his mind’s eye,

Lovingly—-at a distance—-caressed.
