Daily missive for Friday the 9th of June.~by Peter Forster


 

 

Daily missive for Friday the 9th of June.

Wishes are nothing
But what ifs and maybes
Miracles only happen
To others
Even when you want
Them to happen to you
Secretly
In a prayer at bedtime
Even though you
Really don’t believe
Oh how you curse
My indiscretion
Although words heard
On a building site
Can be infinitely worse.
Get it right
Preach peace and love
To those who agree
But purge
The non-believer
From your soul.
Difference is too
Much to cope with
Compliance
Is more than a slip knot
Over the head of the
So nearly departed.
Certainty can make a fool
Of us all
Swans are only white
Until they are not.
Fundamentally
We are all infidels
Unless we are family
You cannot choose them
But can lose
Your head over friendship
Come a cropper in love
Bite off
The hand that feeds you
Have a changeable attitude
To suit the times
Only trust what you believe
Never query how you might
Have got here
Or even where here is
Unless you are prepared
To face loathing and derision
Be a non-person
When uncertain.
