(Saturday 21 November 2009 by Carl A. Patton)
Many things became lost in the game called life. We regret that also many souls wandered and were without direction as they thought that there was a home on earth. Peace raged in the hearts of the righteous while things that are not quiet came upon the foolish and unwise. However the free gift would come later.
It was a shame to some people that the
exiled philosophers had to rake and
scrape for the basics of life as most of
the hiring places had closed long ago.
There was a list blackened as sure as fish
fried or baked. There was one rope that
ended all life on this side while another
tried to annul your economic resources.
Seeking and embracing solitude the thinkers
and philosophers the sages still had to eat
and sleep. Big Jim, he liked to carry on,
would say there was a flat-foot hustler.
Mellow now in age and blessed with a place
called home I saw John. Thinking John
set many things out on a lawn. Yard sale.
He ate he slept and he had peace.
Peace and Paradise,
