CONFESSION

IN  THE  TIME  OF  MY    CONFESSION

If the thing you said you were going to do does not materialize

And should it be found to have been meaningless

And everyone gives up hope

And the Curtain-Raiser leaves the curtain   at half mast

 

This is  PROGRESS!  

 

You might leave the stage   forever

And follow the dark haired cigarette smoking man you have

seen in the courtyard  every day for 6 yrs.    Go on   Follow him

 

To a place where nothing much will happen unless the

Curtain-Raiser finds the will to resurrect Spring

And the imponderables come to a grinding   HALT

 

You knew all along that he would lead you  OUT

He looks slimmer this Fall  & not as worried about

dandruff or his smell

__

 

There’s a man goin’ ’round takin’ names,
And he decides who to free and who to blame.
Everybody won’t be treated all the same,
There’ll be a golden ladder reachin’ down.
When the man comes around.      Johnny Cash  The Man

 

Fall  2013
