POET’S         PORTAL           

Need    Want   Desire    Craving
Are these  stages of Greed
Since day one we all have a natural need
For the basics of life which must be met
Then come things we would want to get
Normal reaction to the goodness of life
Posessions Positions to gain without strife
To be inspired by another’s success
Can be a plan for those with much less
Desire and craving are not just a dream
They can be part of life’s scheme
The path  is there for all to travel
Setbacks puzzles to unravel
The key to life’s quest
Is work. WORK and do your best
Envy is jealousy at its worst
Your hopes and dreams it will burst
Next step down is Greed
From which you can’t be Freed

BIG BUCK Little Doe

 Two outs game almost over
Get the win you get the clover
Grown men play sports and reap fame
Lads dream to be tops in the game
Only a few excel to such heights
Most must settle for dream filled nights
While the pros sock it away
Wannabees long for their day

A huge group of others
Sisters and brothers
Toss and turn in their sleep
Go to bed with little to eat
These are the poor who have no dough
What to feed the family they do not know
Some are without sandal or robe
While relief is sent all over the globe

In nature the Buck takes care of the doe
Together watch the fawns age and grow
Wild life many times can be cruel
The strong over the weak rule
Men and women are above the beast
The rich share with those with the least
Every child should be able to sleep
Going to bed after enough to eat
Able to dream dreams of a king
Or of an eagle on the wing
Spying a Big Buck with a Little Doe
