Terza Rima

Human psyche is obviously odd

A daily secret stock exchange

Each wearing  a mask to hide his fraud.


But dirty dogs are prone to mange

Healthy, honest minds being so rare

Don’t neglect annual oil change!


Therefore most prefer noise, shout, blare

Drowning self in some shiny chic

Diving into a glossy snare

Buying their lies from a boutique.


Hope and change

Everyone lives

Everyone dies

Everyone suffers

Some more than others 

Who can alter that? 

So enough with hope and change

We’ve had enough 


Funny how many die

On the way

To their promised


So let’s just stay

And grow cherry trees

Everyone loves

Everyone dies

Everyone suffers

Some more than others

Nothing can change that

But that’s okay.
