~ Haiku Game V ~

That gently touch hearts
In moments of empathy,
These are the true friends

These are the true friends
That never judge you as bad
They see only good

They see only good
If they look deeply and long
Glances don't reveal

Glances don't reveal
The depth of the human soul
Or hidden secrets

Or hidden secrets
Which have no meaning except
To the one who hides

To the one who hides
Not facing reality
Misses life's joy

Misses life's joy
Without even knowing it ...
The fate of the sad

The fate of the sad
Comes with the electric bill
Pay or sit in dark

Pay or sit in dark
Which is not really so bad
If someone shares it

If someone shares it
And starts to monopolize
Remind them with tact

Remind them with tact
Or a handy five pound rock
What ever works best

What ever works best
is Mother's little secret
Using lots of love

Using lots of love
Makes the recipe of life
A whole lot sweeter

A whole lot sweeter
Are paychecks with over times
Hard work's benefits

Hard work's benefits
Go far beyond mere money ...
They build character

They build character
standing against peer pressure
Be true to yourself

Be true to yourself
Because everywhere you go
Surprise! There you are

Surprise! There you are
Looking for you all my life
Is the frequent line

Is the frequent line
Terminated with a hook
Got to have good bait

Got to have good bait
Baited hooks can sometimes be
Undefined allure

Undefined allure
Is like a pig in a poke
Forever hidden

Forever hidden
Those tempting elusive dreams
Never realized

Never realized
Desires can curdle like milk
In the summer's heat

In the summer's heat
With hot humid sweltering
Relax in the shade

Relax in the shade
View the shapes in the clouds
Changing with the wind

Changing with the wind
Like each new generation
Fresh, eager young minds

Fresh, eager young minds
Are so open to teaching
Treat them with respect

Treat them with respect
Dignifying all races
For we're all the same

For we're all the same
When it comes to wants and needs
Our actions differ

Our actions differ
When dealing with loved ones
Perhaps we're too soft

Perhaps we're too soft
A hammer needs to be hard
To drive in a nail

To drive in a nail
Accurate aim is needed
Else miss the target

Else miss the target
If you shoot in reckless haste
Bide your time and wait

Bide your time and wait
Still the aching pain inside
Time can heal life's wounds

Time can heal life's wounds
But the scars remain always
They go to the bone

They go to the bone
of frustrating contention
Does one ever win?

Does one ever win?
There's only one way to tell
Gain must better work

Gain must better work
Just when I think I'm gaining
POW! Unseen set backs

POW! Unseen set backs
Can come from any quarter
Sneaky lil' devils

Sneaky lil' devils
Calories that lurk unknown
In so called health foods

In so called health foods
The natural herbs can be
Natural killers

Natural killers
As wolfish men's egos think
So beware ladies!

So beware ladies,
Kill with the very first shot
Wounded prey is fierce

Wounded prey is fierce
Expect retaliation
Run or face the beast

Run or face the beast
With courage and fortitude
Attack will work well

Attack will work well
Get nagging bills under siege
Avoid further debts

Avoid further debts
By stopping further breathing
That's the real sure way

That's the real sure way
To end a long tiring day
Draw loved ones near

Draw loved ones near
Into a circle of warmth
Baby, it's cold outside

Baby, it's cold outside
Jack Frost is nipping at buns
Burrr, bring on some sun!

Burr, bring on some sun
Rainy, dreary days are nice
If you are a duck

If your are a duck
Walk the walk and talk the talk
Be true to yourself

Be true to yourself
If you tell yourself a lie
Who are you fooling?

Who are you fooling?
With those flimsy disguises
Most can read your heart ...

Most can read your heart
If you wear it on your sleeve
Hide a few feelings

Hide a few feelings
Stow them away carefully
Til' the time is right ...

Til' the time is right
Don't show anyone your hand
You can raise and bluff

You can raise and bluff
Poker faces are a myth
It's luck of the draw!

It's luck of the draw
That gives you the cards in hand
How you play is skill

How you play is skill
Adding practice hones ones craft
But watch for boredom

But watch for boredom
That creeps into the best of things
Ennui comes to all

Ennui comes to all
Not to the adventurer
Live! Break your restraints

Live! Break your restraints
It's hard to fly with eagles
Carrying a rock

Carrying a rock
melody in heart and soul
Love Metallica!

Love Metallica
Especially on gold lame
Dresses on models

Dresses on models
Never look the same on us
Heyyy, we look better!

Heyyy, we look better
And longer at real women
Models are too thin

Models are too thin
Emaciated bodies
Wasted sacrifice

Wasted sacrifice
On the altar of false Gods
Completely useless

Completely useless
to vainly struggle against
Government red tape

Government red tape
Fills the plate of the petty...
Bureaucratic food

Bureaucratic food
Does not feed the hungry poor
They go uncared for...

They go uncared for
And pointly forgotten...
Mother Earth's children

Mother Earth's children
Inside we are all the same
To the Creator

To the Creator
Goes all credit and our thanks
In the smoke from sage

In the smoke from sage
Creator acknowledges
Our thanks with Blessings

Our thanks with Blessings
Should be offered everyday
Have some gratitude!

Have some gratitude
Others are worse off than you
Show some compassion...

Show some compassion
It will be returned to you
Circles have no end

Circles have no end
Forever continuous
Like the ocean's tides

Like the ocean tides
That sweep clean the beaches
Pure thoughts clear the mind

Pure thoughts clear the mind
Renewing our energies
A new force bursts forth
