Daily Rations Of Hay

Daily Rations Of Hay 

With our fine country
only becoming,
more multi-racial and 
culturally-diverse,
stagnation and division,
seem only to be 
on the increase.
Supporting this more
than sad trend,
are the leaders,
sitting at the very top.
In spite of being 
older myself, y nature,
and with women most
definitely on the rise,
I think one solution, 
that could very well be,
is to take all the 
old white guys, 
in government, 
put them out to pasture,
and most generously,
and not really racist 
b
give them their,
daily rations of hay.

Crossing The Bed Of Hot Rocks

Crossing The Bed Of Hot Rocks

Here I am at the
inevitable start line, 
shaken to the very core,
on the scary threshold of
having to finally engage,
in weather or not, 
I’ll be able to finally take 
the necessary step,
for my eternal salvation.
Do I bravely,
throw cation to the wind,
knowing of the  
high possibility, 
of extreme pain ahead?
Having avoided what 
might be called, 
my ultimate destiny,
do I once again,
steer away in fear,
hoping my future might very 
well magically change,
in great hopes of 
extended avoidance,
or should I proceed
most bravely,
in my inevitable
journey of finally,
crossing the bed of hot rocks?                                           R. Nichols
