Colored Outcomes


Little mouse running 'cross the cabin floor
High tech trap awaits him at the kitchen door
Life events have one thing that is always true
Outcomes will be colored by one's point of view

A homemade bomb obliterates a citizen
An unmanned drone assassinates some foreign men
Life events have one thing that is always true
Outcomes will be colored by one's point of view

Muslim minds remember deadly Crusade fights
Right-wing Christians rant about proposed mosque sites
Life events have one thing that is always true
Outcomes will be colored by one's point of view

Human family celebrates with chocolate cake
Mouse's family all attend an evening wake
Life events have one thing that is always true
Outcomes will be colored by one's point of view

Poem of the Day

poet Charles Stuart Calverley

He stood, a worn-out City clerk —
Who'd toil'd, and seen no holiday,
For forty years from dawn to dark —
Alone beside Caermarthen Bay.
