Just One Drop


Just one drop
that falls not
That never fails
in erasing all fault

A death
that brings life
One for all
In the serenity
of a friendly voice
I hear the call
Always a choice
to steer your vessel
on a heavenly course
Words of wisdom
the truth to tell
One drop of love
that doesn’t fall
and never fails

Just one drop
of grace divine
suspended . . .
in the fullness of time
No silent witness
to a world of crime
A door is wide open
as the Word
has been spoken
throughout the expanse
of infinite space
One drop of hope
for this human race

Just one drop …
more than enough

Go Smilingly amid the noise and haste
of cyberspace, and remember what joy

of the Rune, and the Hieroglyph.
And whether or not it is clear to you,
never doubt that internet is unfolding
. . . as it should.

Le Touriste ๐Ÿ˜Ž Part 7

“My yellow is not so mellow.”
~ Jimi Hendrix

“In the shuffling madness
aboard the locomotive
‘Emo-Jo Breath’
rides the all time grinner
that ever wiley
Mr. Smiley Face
An engine of holy anger
Forged in a furnace
Of Emoji righteousness
Ever flowing
With hot vengeance
Thundering on
own the track
As the Yellow Peril
That bane
of Muppet mayhem
He’s now on the case
And that train
It won’t stop going
No, it won’t slow down”
