A Citizen’s Warning And Lament: Improv Free Verse

September 5, 2012

Citizen!
Spend your life paying taxes,
Volunteering in the community,
Coaching others children to become better citizens, team players, more healthy.

Offer your life
Working to feed and shelter the homeless,
Leading youth on wilderness trips and service projects,
Giving of your time, talents, money,
and everything you have to your church.

And when the time comes
that one of your own needs help,
because she is too old,
she doesn’t have insurance,
you make too much money,
her condition isn’t seen as a disease,
and she becomes so thin
that she falls through the cracks,

Prepare, then, oh Citizen!
to stand by
helplessly
and watch her die
and wish you could you have volunteered
and paid
and given of your time, talents,
and everything that you had
to bless her life
and keep her alive.

Legacy Of Moving Helpers: Revolutionary IMprov Sonnet

March 6, 2011

Moving? I’ll raise my hand
to volunteer;
to hold the other end.
I’ve always been here.

Always been a guy
to help people move.
I couldn’t say why;
it’s just what we do.

My folks would get the call,
Grandparents and uncles, too.
Brothers, sisters, without fail:
we’d help people move.

And now you’re heading down a new road,
just call me: I’ll help you lift your load.
