What Comes Next

What comes next in a future context
depends upon whether the curvature of spacetime
is concave or convex.

A con in a cave will not likely behave
in a way that makes him look smart.
But what a con decides to do next
when that con is vexed may be to tear the cave apart!

But what comes next
the future will bring
and maybe answer the question:
what is the next big thing?  

Yes whatever comes next
the future will bring it
and if it is lyrical music set to a text
then we all can certainly try sing it?


Justice Or Just Ice

Everything has a price
even free but steaming hot rice
because to make it cool
you got to have ice.

But is just ice the price of justice
when it is without compassion and cold?
Did Richard Pryor find "just us"
when thrown into the jail house hold?

But where there is oxygen in the air
there will always be material rust
and such a reward is just and fair
if in material things you put all your trust.

For justice is what trust is
as in a sense of fair play
but if greed is what lust is
then justice for the poor
wont come their way.


Plagiarism

Plagiarism is the play of a jerk
who thinks that he is the heir
to someone elses' work
and that he can copy it without permission
and without giving proper credit.

To buy an internet term paper
is conceptually wrong
as is the unauthorized downloading
of a copyrighted song
but some affluent college students just don't get it!

Let us try to explain, hopefully not in vain!

Plagiarism   => Pla-gi-a-ri-sm  => Play jerk heir-i-sm

If  deep inside of you there lurks
an assortment of different jerks
then a garage full of BMWs
from Bavarian Motor Werks

will not bring you peace of mind.

So just follow the precept
of the "Rule Of Gold"
and apply it wisely
in a manner bold
and when the unscrupulous lives
start to unfold
your own dignity will still be fine.


The Message

The message is about
the mess of the age
for order may only come
with historys' new page.
For order is when things
are lined up straight
and for that to come
we may have to wait.


An Optimist

An optimist is one who opts
to take mostly positive views
but a pessimist is often pissed
by the thought of good news.

A record profit is a good fit
for a pro of a CEO
and appears on the bottom line.
But  a record loss,  per contractual clause,
is a good enough cause for the CEO to resign!


Signs Of The Times


Scientists look for signs
as in the regularities found in nature.
A governor will often choose to sign
bills that pass thru the legislature.

Stock brokers look for signs
that may indicate future trends.
And heavy smokers ignore signs
that smoke will do them in.

STOP is a sign
that controls traffic at a junction
and sine is denoted by "sin"
as in the sine wave function.


Betterless


When is less than better than
except is the scoring of golf?
Will comedy fans clap their hands
when the comedian makes them laugh?

When is more not better than less
except in the amount of corporate debt?
And if a fraudulent executive should freely confess
how much time should he get?


Untitled # 1


A philosopher once spoke
in words as a kind of joke
in order to appeal to the lighter side,
that there are concepts so profound
that they can't be broken down
without provoking laughter from deep inside.

Bill was a philosopher
and though he saw lots of her
Jill was not his cup of tea.
And so it was not ironic
when he suggested Platonic
as the way their relationship should be.


The Good Banker

When one  has such a wonderful banker
one constantly has to thank her
for a job well done.
For when she reconciles your account
you can be sure that the amount
is the correct and right one.



Wind Chill


When the wind chill freezes your windshield
you know that winter is going full blast
but when your car starts rolling downhill
you best put the brakes on fast!


Untitled # 2


A man drunk on beer
in a tavern booth
would not realize it if he should hear
a  statement of fundamental truth
especially if he is in his youth
and is also drinking gin with vermouth.
