~ HAIKU Game Part XXVlll ~

Uniting mankind
Is like herding bunches of cats
No two think alike

No two think alike
We form our own ideas
Patterns of the mind

Patterns of the mind
Are often set in cement.
All learning stops here.

All learning stops here...
With the cocky "know it all"
Uptight "Zipperheads"

Uptight zipperheads
And buttoned down minds need a
Drastic fashion change

Drastic fashion change
Comes with nouveau couturiers
Designing wild styles ...

Designing wild styles
Takes the majority of
Jack Frost's free hours.

Jack Frost's free hours
are spent like anyone else
Having Summer fun...!

Having Summer fun
"Skeeters" and gnats dance and sing
In the long warm nights

In the long warm nights
Nightingales enchant the heart
With magical song ...

With magical song
The Shaman calls forth Blessings.
The people rejoice

The people rejoice
when underdogs are winners
Hope, against all odds...!

Hope against all odds
Fills the coffers of lotto
Castles in the sky

Castles in the sky
on plateau's in dreamer's eyes
Reach beyond the clouds...

Reach beyond the clouds
and touch the face of the Sun
Expand your limits

Expand your limits
Feel life's exhilaration
With a new challenge

With a new challenge
and grim determination
A kid tries to skate

A kid tries to skate
for achievement and pleasure
'Midst fun, thrills and spills...!

'Midst fun, thrills and spills
Rodeo clowns tease massive
Enraged bulls and steers

Enraged bulls and steers
often visit bars and pubs
It helps 'em cool off...!

It helps 'em cool off
And invent brand new dances
Ice cubes down the pants

Ice cubes down the pants
delightful and mischievous
At teen age parties...

At teen age parties
Be ready for anything.
The dear little imps.

The dear little imps
go about their tricks and pranks
With mischievous smiles...

With mischievous smiles
Leprechauns flash their gold hoard
You can only look

You can only look
and must not think of touching
A Mother Bird's eggs...

A Mother Bird's eggs
Are the promise of future
Treasures beyond price

Treasures beyond price
resist theft and are hidden
Deep within our hearts

Deep within our hearts
The "Two Wolves" keep on fighting
Feed just the good one

Feed just the good one
Starve temptation and evil
With "Soul Food" diets...

With "Soul Food" diets
You may get fat but you'll be
A happy fat cat...

A happy fat cat
plays a close game of toss up
with carefree happy slobs

With carefree happy slobs,
Comfort wins over neatness.
I'll clean tomorrow.

I'll clean tomorrow
vows among trifling no goods
Empty promises...

Empty promises
Are like stone birds, pretty but
They just do not fly

They just do not fly
those prefabricated lies...
Unbelievable...!

Unbelievable
Things do happen everyday.
Life surprises us

Life surprises us
NEVER underestimate
Your own destiny

Your own destiny
Is the path you can't avoid.
Walk with your head raised.

Walk with your head raised
knowing that you are a child
Of a loving God...

Of a loving God
It is said, "He sees us all
Equal in His sight."

Equal in his sight
A hunter quarries his prey
Whether large or small...

Whether large or small
Each living thing is my friend.
We are all related.

We are all related
regardless of race or creed
In the Tribe of Man

In the Tribe of Man
There are lots of "Contraries".
They are called "Women".

They are called Women...
Yes, the heart of your nations
Hear our mighty roar!

Hear our mighty roar!
Says a group of lions locked
Within a steel cage

Within a steel cage
even the bars cannot trap
Nor tame the Spirit

Nor tame the Spirit
Nor tame the restless wind's breath
All efforts are naught

All efforts are naught
within thoughtless idle minds
Dull ineptitude...

Dull ineptitude
Sits and watches life flow by
While the quick do things

While the quick do things
Time becomes reality
Dreams are realized...

Dreams are realized
When they are reasonable.
Miracles are rare.

Miracles are rare
when using reality
for a broken Faith

For a broken Faith,
Count your Blessings for a splint.
There's more than enough.

There's more than enough
true love and sincere caring
When everyone shares...
