Poetry By: moonphish

or half as clever ?

when i was young i longed to have

more lives than did a cat
i reached the year two thousand
and was awfully glad of that
i hope to beat the mayans
and their legendary curse
i may be getting gray a bit
but hell, things could be worse
perhaps in twenty twenty
things will all be crystal clear
an end to all disease and war
a world erased of fear
a ouija board once told me
i would die at eighty six
but this could be the devil
and his sordid bag of tricks
i hope imagination
will succeed me in the end
creating my own afterlife
as rich as i pretend
would it be very different
from the life i now possess ?
this notion seems as plausible
as any one, i guess
for now, i choose to relish
every day, as it may come
tomorrow, half as clever
and the next day, twice as dumb
