Couth Truth
20 August 2016

The truth walks plainly
In the broad daylight
And strolls around mundanely
Thru the dark of night.
The unadorned truth can be seen
By those who look without guile.
To the liar she’s most obscene.
She gives the braggart no smile.
Truth’s friendly to the plain-spoken
And frequently speaks unobtrusively.
Simple, humble folk find her token
Easily gotten when they act inclusively. 
Truth’ll endure some limited abuse,
But push her boundaries too far
And you’ll regret that you unloose
Anger and scorn from her repertoire.
Yes, exceed truth’s reasonable bounds
And you’ll experience her full fury,
So you’ll keenly wish karmic rebounds
Hadn’t been invented to your misery.

On The Road With A Load

On The Road With A Load
1 Aug 2016

Singing as the miles pass
And laughing at in-jokes,
They’re in their own class,
Acting like silly folks.
Driving down the long road,
The loving couple Cheryl and Kate,
Deliver another full truckload
After dodging cars on the interstate.
As they arrive safe and unstressed, 
Kate has the needed driving skills
To best any tight parking test.
She earns money to pay the bills.
