Penny wise and pound foolish
You whistle past as idle words
Are caught somewhere in
Our tomorrows forward.
We are what we make of it
Were remembered for what
We take of it.
There is a definite misgiving
In the revival of check and balance,
The power of your stare
Is your most singular talent.
And with 24/7 access at your disposal
Will you refuse romance
For a more collective tolerance
Where the brick and mortar stones dance?
Are you willing to take the chance?
With scorned ribbons of taking
Darting in and out
Rise high above the din
With a personal shout.
You have such a sweet mouth
Even as you said,
I cant remember her name.
We are what we make of it.
We are remembered for what
We take of it.
With few exceptions
But those are universally proclaimed.
I no longer comprehend
The performance gain
Reign on silver cadence, run
Its a six shooter, not a gun.
A little more or a little less
She is chained:
A time worn goddess
A known many dismissed.
A connumbra that goes on and on and on
While dispirited travelers tiredly gaze.
Will you be the one?

Soleil, I have certainly missed seeing your name attached to a poem because, when it it, I know the poem is excellent. This one is no exception.
