Rule of Gold
It is time for all members of the Christian Church
to diligently search for the true meaning
of the Golden Rule.
For it will keep your pathway straight.
And if you do unto others
as you would have them reciprocate
then only a few will respond with hate.
For every action there is an equal and opposite
just as you learned in your physics class.
And for every kind word there is generated
of the good things that may come to pass.
The Power of the Air
God is like the air
invisible but indispensable
she will always be invincible.
For who can knock a killer asteroid
off of its potential deadly course?
Well man has nothing that can now be deployed
with sufficient preventive force?
So why not be a nation of prayer?
Then we just might continue to avoid
all great disasters
including an asteroid.
More Quality Time or a new Ipod?
An Essay in Rhyme about which one
should get the nod.
The price of necessities such as ipods and cell phones
are prohibitively expensive and high.
And parents can hardly afford them
no matter how hard they work and try.
So both parents have to work
to give the kids all the gadgets they need.
But this could also create a fertile ground
for the lethal jerk to sullenly lurk and breed.
The kind of jerk who could bring lethal destruction
inside of a lecture hall
causing the innocent to frantically run, scream
So perhaps one parent should work at home
and provide the kids with tender nurturing care
and just before school take the comb
and comb little Johnny’s hair.
Is not he an asset1
of the most priceless kind?
So make sure that he will get
the best day care you can find.
Who can do it better than you,
one of his parents?
Of course TV is not an accurate depiction
of the modern trends in life
but what were the most important things
to Ward Cleavers’ wife?2
And just how many school shootings
did the 1950’s bring about
and how many expensive gadgets were there then
that the kids could not do without?
It is true that many of today’s gizmos
had not been invented then
but when a kid got back home from school
there was a parent to greet him in.
The camera crew will eventually come to interview
the parents of the perpetrator.
To ask them if they knew or had any clue
of the tragic things that he would do later.
So if you are a parent of a growing kid
and you want to diminish the chance of
such a future shock,
then perhaps you should take the time to bid
up the value of your own human stock...
in your own kids.
Invest quality time with your kids just like you save and
invest for their college education.
1.) Human Capital is an important part of any corporate
enterprise. But most parents tend to forget that
their own children are very important human assets
and deserve an investment of quality time.
2.) Ward and June Cleaver were the parent characters of the
1950-60’s sitcom “Leave It To Beaver”
