Introspective on my birthday.


Bad Stuff, Good Stuff

I've done so much
Bad stuff,
But the good news is,
I've also done so much
Good stuff.
Good things,
Bad things.

I've introduced
Girlfriends
To their husbands,
Saved toddlers
From drowning,
From on-coming busses,
From falling out of windows.

I've made people
Laugh till they
Cried.
I've made people
Livid.

Puce with rage,
I can provoke
The mildest mouse
To murder.

I've lied
Pathologically,
I've stolen
From the best.

Only last week,
I resisted
The irresistable,
A silver spoon
From Prince Charles' kitchen.

How I longed
To own it,
Amongst the Highgrove
Topiary of his emerald
China teacups.

your poetry brings good stuff in the way of it's pure honest expressions. You get an applaud from this one who knows of the battles that can go on inside oneself. : ) kathy

as the scripture goes "one sin destroyeth much good."
goodness counts nothing as long as you yet have not made up for the mistakes.

Wonderful retrospective Esti!! The trick is to steal the spoon, then publicly to accept responsibility for your actions. It works for presidents ;-)
