MY WORD DIET

Long poems are for the birds! They have just too many words. I like ‘em short and sweet, Like something axiomatic that I can “tweet”. Poems that appeal to people who are real, Not some long spiel. Long poems leave me cold. By the time you’ve finished them you’re old! “Keep it simple, stupid” is my motto. Altruistically speaking, I’m not trying to win the Word Lotto. Long words too with hidden meanings Are for people with intellectual leanings. I’m on a word diet. My asseveration is: Get rid of the fat words and try it.

The Golden Sieve

Having mind like a sieve is not always so bad
For discernment in life is a gift
Information jams can cause a Teutonic shift.
For some, winnowing facts is a hard thing to do
Whether used for retention or letting things through
A good sieve has a value like ‘greater jihad.’

Though we meet our rejection sometimes with a frown
We should trust in the service it brings
For rejection is tied to invisible strings
That like harbingers portend some problem withheld
Or a misunderstanding that must be dispelled
Before peaceful ways can be restored to a town.

In both love and in life we should let failure go,
And the lessons learned taken in stride
Clear the decks and make ready to sail with the tide
If your loyalty to the KISS  law remains true
You will find you’ve less reason than most to be blue.
And your ego in life won’t be most of the show..

Poet’s Notes:
The KISS principle is an acronym for "Keep It Simple Stupid."

CIRCULAR REASONING

In the vast beauty and diversity
                 of the reaches of the cosmos
           impresses upon us all
the shear minute dust we are
                 in any comparison
The simplicity of laws
            that govern it's most basic
     and complex movements
Birth , Life , Death
                 some would distain this as "circular"
as the patterns in creation are
for all things existing within its confines
the birth , life , death of stars   , galaxies
entropy and the recirculation of those elements
into new structures encased
                 in the womb for new material
apply equally to the diversity of structures
                 cycling on the little blue marble
seed  sprout   bush    tree     seed 
seed  sprout   plant    flower     seed
seed   baby    child     adult       seed
same  down    onthe   cellular    level
same  down    tothe    atomic     level 
                 and its clock
in a state of perfectly circular self propagation
For those who foolishly accuse us of being
 
                   CIRCULAR
 
Let me explain              a simple something
     how we measure time in the cosmos
 
is based on a circular orbital movement of planets
                      and stars
and as for thinking
are questions seeking answers which just
                     lead to more questions
 
          and that's the beauty of it
 
       simplicity defines even the most
        complex systems that function
 
right down to the circuit boards for computers
        and technology
 
Mama      seals     it      with     Kiss
        Keep it simple stupid
 
anyone who doesn't know
a clock embedded in the universe
has not recognized his own

Programmer's Love Defined

(Proving Once And For All Time That Love Is Not Binary)

Definition of Variables 
X, PATH, JOHN, JOHNJOHN, MARSHA, MARSHAMARSHA, ALPHA, OMEGA

Initial Values
SET X=0, SET PATH = 1, SET JOHN = .5, JOHNJOHN = 1000,
MARSHA = .5, MARSHAMARSHA = 1000

Program Start:
LOVE101: LET ALPHA = JOHN + MARSHA
   ;John And Marsha Equals 1 means
   ;that the couple feels like they
   ;are united. However John’s and
   ;Marsha’s values range from 0-1
LET OMEGA= JOHNJOHN – MARSHAMARSHA
   ;John Without Marsha Equals 0 
   ;means that the couple wants to
   ;stay together.
LOOP1: LET X= X+1
DOES ALPHA = 1, THEN CONTINUE, ELSE END
DOES OMEGA = O, THEN CONTINUE, ELSE END

FLIPFLOP: DOES PATH = 1, THEN CONTINUE, ELSE PATH2

PATH1: LET JOHN = FUNCTION (RANDOM NUMBER)
LET JOHNJOHN = FUNCTION (RANDOM NUMBER)
LET MARSHA = FUNCTION (MARSHA’S UNITARY CHOICE)*
LET MARSHAMARSHA = FUNCTION (MARSHAMARSHA’s NULL CHOICE)*
FLIPFLOP1: SET PATH = 2
GO TO CHECKTIME

PATH2: LET MARSHA = FUNCTION (RANDOM NUMBER)
LET MARSHAMARSHA = FUNCTION (RANDOM NUMBER)
LET JOHN = FUNCTION (JOHN’S UNITARY CHOICE)*
LET JOHNJOHN = FUNCTION (JOHNJOHN’S NULL CHOICE)*
FLIPFLOP2: SET PATH = 1

CHECKTIME: DOES X = INFINITY** THEN END, ELSE GO TO LOVE101
END: FULL STOP

 
Poet/Programmer’s Notes:

1. *   If there is a fly in the ointment, (a bug in the program) this is it!
There is some humor in the setting of the initial values here too. Please note
that the initial values for both John and Marsha are less than zero, and yet 
both JohnJohn and MarshaMarsha are batting 1000!? 
    **  Also a no no is the fact that no computer can handle an infinite number (or a woman perhaps?)

The moral of this program/blank verse poem is….

KISS (AND OFTEN)

2. In other places I have suggested that a ‘model of reality’ presented in
Physics can be very much like a poem. I think that I have proven here that
a computer program can also be very poem like! : -) 

For those not familiar with the acronym, KISS means 'Keep It Simple Stupid!'
This is not some veiled sexual reference! Heck, we are talking about 'Programmers' here!?

3. Is there anyone besides me who remembers a satire of soap opera melodramatics, “John & Marsha’’ that consisted of a man and a woman (both
voices performed by Stan Freberg in 1951) decalring their passion for each
other by repeating their names over and over while organ music played in the
background? Check it out if you can!

in VICTORIA SECRET or your baggy sweat pants

(sometimes poetry has to express itself in the simplicity of your heart. i term this type of poem as bedroom poetry. you don't need to be Byron or Shelly just a man with the woman he loves. your poem has to be as gentle as a KISS, keep it simple, Stupid!!)



i love you not because you have special talents although you have many not because you’re beautiful though i know any artist would be thrilled to display you on canvas i love you not because of your mild nature you are gentle or because you’re a genius i do love listening to you speak i love you sometimes life will get the better of you i expect you will make mistakes you should know we all have a dark side i will always be there with a light the way you have been a beacon for me i love you dressed to the hilt for a night out first thing in the morning after a bad night when you agree with me think I'm out in left field when you hand me the converter hide it in another country i love you unconditionally happy you're with me
