Not from Laughing


Life is the sure bondage of mortuaries,
Weeping in the still living flesh.

The thermostat of life plummeting,
While counting up the deaths day by day.

Giving precious hours getting nothing in return;
The clocks hands are not a charity,

The calendar is not a mission of mercy-
These lines are not from laughing.

Poem of the Day

poet Henry David Thoreau

Conscience is instinct bred in the house,
Feeling and Thinking propagate the sin
By an unnatural breeding in and in.
I say, Turn it out doors,
Into the moors.
