1 por cento

"Tudo o que entendemos sobre os negócios 
- a tabela de juros,
as combinações cosméticas, 
as leis das Vendas Diretas, 
toda a riqueza, 
toda a prosperidade 
são 1% dos negócios. 

Produzimos bilhões nos 1% que entendemos.

A vida e os negócios
 precisa do seu 100%.
 Você não pode compensar um fraco esforço hoje,

O que o consumidor quer e Linha da vida
O que o consumidor quer

A economia da experiência comprova: 
Fazer negócios 
é um ato de amor.
Antes, a questão era descobrir se 
o consumidor precisava consumir.

o consumidor quer viver.

Êxito no trabalho

I found John today.
John died yesterday. 

I read of John today.
I vibrate now to his pinch.

Somewhere by a poisoned river
a dead man was born...
Somewhere by a noisy airfield
a pre-writ obit finds me -
The news can still be news.
My future in...Read More

Choice flavours poise
Watch tone of voice

Pick and choose well
Each line now tells

Each man hooks fine
Squeeze each thought line

One by one move
Patchwork verse groove

Voice after voice
Set jazzy poise

Each author sums
Stitch by stitch comes

Raw ideas paste
Sync with new taste

Cento now streams
Dream within...Read More

Don't wake me from the dream, if this is a dream
Throne we shall sit, when we celebrate life after scar
Alone in my sanity more or less drives me crazy
Drone of the dark life has sunk me too far

Secret Dreams- A Poe Patchwork poem
Whose heart-strings are a lute
embalmed in their echoing songs! 
When Nature sleeps and stars are mute
at midnight, in the month of June.
A mystery, and a dream,
perchance is woven in thy sleep;
for the moon never beams without bringing me dreams

On December's Throne (Classic Poetry Cento)
Now sleeps the crimson petal, now the white;
alone with the enduring Earth, and Night.
With fold to fold, of mountain or of cape;
who wrestles with his dream; as some pale shape.
Their sharp black heads against a quiet sky,
where youth grows pale,...Read More

Made up of syllables, of numbered lines
Of imagery and rhyme

To fill my time

So many to appreciate
Those on which, we rely
Pick one out, let it flow
Come on, give it a try
