“ Obesity ” ~ a corpulent world ~

I can but wonder,

How so composed

Without concern,

Fate should impose

Thus so to suffer,

Man failed put term

To obesity’s torture,

And so I ponder

This hapless burden,

Lived with adversity

In a corpulent world,

Where we offer but pity

Alas to a bleak obesity!

“ If Memory Fails ” ~ I’ve towed the line ~


If memory fails

And I should falter,

Take me to find

A kindly shelter,

Thus so to guide

A growing burden

Of once held pride,

To a kindly place

Of said seclusion

For a dying mind,

Whose fading use

Be running shy of time,

Thence I may sense

When memory’s failed,

I once towed my own line!
