FREE CEE are there caribou in malibu

                          ARE THERE CARIBOU IN MALIBU?

The frail I fail to reach
The elderly with so much to teach
Those older whose shoulder brushes mine
And yet each and every eye still to shine
Those tangled up by values and vine
The ones who nourish squirrels in some secluded square
Those with remembrances to relate with reverence, relevance and a touch of flair

The old and the better ones
The aged and embittered ones
Those who fear to do what they could never dare
Those who neither dare nor bare secrets shame surely shan’t share
That elder over there on a bench was once a tailor in a shop on Main in Malibu
That one used to do conservation work for the caribou
Because every elder once was………….
Everyone once was something
Something of worth with value assessed
Everyone has been caressed
With lonely last times and blessed by first times
Bed times, bad times and the worst times
Rain shower times and feathery flower times
Repressing and depressing times……………..
Most had lovers to whom they were inclined
Still others had delight definitively defined
Some fell well behind
Others, on occasion, rose to the occasion
Each once had a viable vocation
Everyone did something kind
Everyone had vengeance weighing on their mind
Everyone tried to kindle a spark
And some were deserted deeply in the dark
Yet only a sacred few died and acutely, with acumen, left their mark
