Advice to the Wise

I thought it was about time that I changed the poem on my journal so here is a new one.

Relax, Enjoy, Be Merry!

If I were given the choice, I would
get rid of ‘ought’ and ‘must’ and ‘should’.
Such words would go in the rubbish bin
along with ‘guilt’ and ‘blame’ and ‘sin’.
We only need to love each other
and treat our neighbour as our brother.
All other ‘do’s’ and ‘don’ts’ don’t matter;
they’re just a lot of idle chatter.
We’ve only one life as far as we know,
so let’s enjoy it before we go.

  • Listening to: Ishtar - La voix d'Alabina
  • Reading: Three Men in a Boat (again)
  • Watching: the world go by
  • Playing: crib
  • Eating: Yorkshire Pudding
  • Drinking: suwa (at least I wish I were)
