YARD SALE

(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,

Dr. Carl A. Patton writing for the FreedomJournal Press 22 November 2009 in the year of our Lord and Savior Christ Jesus.
