Are We Nearly There Yet?

Are we nearly there yet?
Those words all parents hate
That climb aboard with little child
And on the nerves do grate!

For as soon as engine starts up
And wheels begin to turn
They just believe that time will stop
As  journeys end returns

And in that very instant
All children seem to think
That by some “Who’ish” magic
They’lll trade those forty winks

And reach their destination
Almost immediately
Where “are we nearly there yet”
Will become – “what is for tea?”

Watch Out

He thinks he is a tiger
Or maybe a wild lion
Stalking across the prairie by
The power of Orion
With claws as sharp as pincers
And teeth honed to devour
The flesh of those he pounces on
Dare they stand still or cower
With eyes slit green with envy
And stealth his weapon too
Watch out the cat who sleeps and dreams
For he might jump on you!

Philosophy of Tolerance

There’s a practice amongst humans
Where opinions are a vent
To understand the raison d’être
The purpose; no relent
To box in categories how
Just each conjecture lies
To label them philosophy
Postulate and theorise

Then each of these is made into
A system of beliefs
A way; a vision; attitude
That aims to give relief
To human constant questioning
Of what has gone before
Or what will happen in the next
What’s through life’s tight sealed door

But still the bottom line is this
That whilst we might believe
In select ideas and outlooks
That we choose to conceive
All have a perfect credence
When they are bought into
For minds aid understanding
When hearts have buy in too

And so why some fight; go to war
Dictating what is right
Just seems to block perspective
And fails to have insight
For there’s a patchwork blanket
That spreads across the Earth
Humanity’s opinions
The bedrock that gives worth

The values each subscribe to and
The ways they want to be
Opinions, sentiments and thoughts
To comprise philosophy
So in essence it might be the case
That there’s more than one way
If we all chose to synchronize
With tolerance each day

Philosophy of Tolerance

Doubt

This was inspired by fellow blogger’s poem Self Worth. Check out his writings – they are fab :-)

A little doubt is helpful
For awareness shall we say
A check that rids us of conceit
That stops us falling prey
To arrogance; pomposity
But go too far and then
That doubt becomes self limiting
And pushes us again
Into a place uncertain
Where nothing seems quite right
Cos there we lose all self esteem
Ourselves fall out of sight
So the best that we can aim for
Is a fence on which to sit
That strikes the balance in between
Self doubt and puffed up wit

Fish bowl existence
Swimming for all to notice
Yet drowning unseen

Silicon Lives

Are we too focussed on what is so wrong
In a world that’s now based in pure silicon
Where carbon is passé; a thing of the past
No longer good enough; failing too fast

As microchip evolves and takes over at will
Prosthetic brains working longer; our own left to chill
From computers that run at a rate of great knots
Less the mind that’s created them just left to rot

Programs, software, algorithms and more
Depleting the essence of what’s at our core
Train wrecking yet labelled progression they say
With perfection in sight just a stone’s throw away

And mankind outranked by technology
The beast that’s arisen flogging us constantly
Enslaving our minds, our hearts and our souls
To utopic belief’s; so far from what’s whole

Yet as carbon is to life; to err is to be
Just perfect save flaws above technology
For a focus on good; on right must come first
Less the auto-correcting that is silicon’s thirst

 

Sonnet To The Moon

The lunar disk that paces cross the sky
White luminosity through blackness speeds
Behind the clouds of grey and darkness shies
Controlling waves she summons ocean’s needs
Celestial body gleaming rays of white
In synchronous rotation shows one face
A natural satellite that shines so bright
Ecliptic pathway circling with grace
Yet throughout time tis said that a full moon
Will influence with madness so perplexed
And warp the mind to waver out of tune
To leave each man and woman over vexed
       Still marvel at our moon less dare profane
       As lunar phases wax before they wane
