LESSONS FOR LOSERS

PICK UP YOUR SHOES

RUN YOUR ERRANDS.

ANSWER THE DOORBELL–

RETURN PHONE CALLS–

ATTEND PARTIES & SMILE

DON’T HIDE FROM NEIGHBORS

OR YOUR SIGNIFICANT OTHER,

AND ONCE A YEAR AT LEAST

GO THROUGH YOUR IN-BASKET–

ADMIT YOU WATCH TV TOO MUCH,

GET OFF THE SOFA–

GO FOR A WALK & MAKE EYE CONTACT:

KEEP UP WITH LOCAL SPORTS–

BE READY WITH A TIMELY JOKE

AND PAY ATTENTION TO PATHETIC PUNSTERS–

DONATE TO CHARITY!

JOIN A NUMBER OF SAD FOOD PANTRIES

SHOW SOME AFFECT IN DIALOG.

TIP THE BOTTOM OF THE BARREL GANG.

IGNORE WRETCHEDLY BORING PEOPLE

(THEY MAY BE YOUR BOSS ONE DAY!)

FINALLY, FOR NOW–

KEEP AN ALERT, WELL WISHING SMILE

STITCHED TO YOUR TORTURED FACE–

YOU’RE THE MIRROR FOR EVERY NOBODY

GOING ABSOLUTELY NOWHERE!

STOP YOUR WHINING & CRYING, FATAL LOSER!

WAS THE LESSON CLEAR?

MY HOUSE THE SIZE OF A LARGE FRIDGE BOX

FLOATING ON MILKY WATER A TIN OF SARDINES

FOR MY SUPPER AND THERE I WAS

PARALYSING THAT TO WOMEN’S SEXUAL FAVORS–

WAS IT ANY SURPRISE I NEVER GOT TO 1ST BASE?

BUT CONVINCED HER, YES, YOU’RE A COMEDIAN–

FOR CERTAIN SURE WHILE AROUND ME,

NO FREE “LUNCH”!

I FOUND MYSELF ENROLLED IN A SCHOOL

OF OBSESSED WIZARDS

WHO DEMANDED ENROLLMENT

AND WHO LAUGHED HEARTILY

AT MY PATHETIC DISCOMFITURE–

YEA, TRULY I SUFFERED

THE TORTURES & PAINGS:

THE GRIEVOUS WRONGS

OF A SCHOOL OF ATHENS

GONE BAD, VERY CLASSICALLY EVIL.

A MERE TIN OF SARDINES

HARDER STILL THE LEAP

INTO THE HAZE

ABOVE THE OCEAN

CLIFF DIVING

THE KNEES TREMBLE

THE PUSH-OFF

VITAL, CRITICAL

TO CLEAR THE ROCKS

NEAR THE BASE

WHERE THE TIDE

RIDES UP & DOWN

WITH THE SURGE

SO THE TIMING

MUST MATCH

THE WAVE CREST

AGAINST THE ROCK FACE

WITH THE ARC

OF THE DIVE.

ITS PLUMMET

ITS TIMING

AND THE ARROW

FORTUNE LEANS…

AND CLEAN

AS YOUR HEAD SHARP

PIERCES THE FLESH OF SEA WATER.

PIERCING THE FLESH OF SEA WATER

NOW DOWN TO FACTS–

LOSE SOME WEIGHT,

ALSO, YOUR I.Q. RANKS

TAKE A COURSE

READ A BOOK

FOR WODIN’S SAKE!

DID YOU OR DID YOU NOT

EAT ALL THE MARSHMALLOWS?

WE NEED TO KNOW!

FOR OUR FILES ONLY

CONFIDENTIAL OF COURSE.

YOU CAN BE HONEST–

WITH US SILENCE, IS AN EGYPTIAN TOMB

ECHOING UNFORGIVEN FACTS–

AND REMEMBER TOO,

THAT’S OUR ONLY GOAL:

THE FACTS! ONLY FACTS,

AS WE SEE & CONFIRM THEM.

AHA! A SMILE OF TRUST,

SO COUGH IT UP

YOU LOTHERIO OF THE COCINA!

WE KNOW YOU’RE

THE NIGHT PROWLER

HIDING AT SNEAKY SNACKING,

LOOK AT THAT GUT! HONESTLY!

NOW THERE’S AN IRREFUTABLE FACT!

FACTS! ONLY THE FACTS, MY DEAR STUDENT!

GODDESS: PRIMITIVE SURVIVAL TRAINING

MOTHER WROTE THE NOTE

PLACED IT IN A BOTTLE

THREW IT IN THE SEA

FOLDED HER HANDS IN PRAYER–

TROD THE DUNES TILL DINNER

TOLD US ALL ABOUT IT

HER LOST LOVER AT SEA

OR A DESERT ISLAND

OR SLEEPING IN DAVY JONES

SHE DESCRIBED HIS CURLS

HIS BOLD WAY OF WALKING

THE FUNNY POMPOM HAT

HOW HE COULD’VE BEEN THE ONE

BUT YOUR FATHER CAME ALONG

AND HE HAD WINGS

HE COULD FLY HIGH IN AIR

DO FLIPS THROUGH CLOUDS

SMILED LIKE A MONKEY

ATE BANANAS TO BE STRONG

OH, THERE WERE OTHER BEAUX

BUT THEY WERE BORING

NOT WORTHY OF MENTION

FORGIVE MY SENTIMENTALITY, (CHILDREN)

WHEN MY LAST SAILOR DREAMS IN ME!

DREAMS IN A BOTTLE

MAGENTA BLOSSOMS

FALL INTO RAIN POOLS.

MY HEART SAID, WHY NOT LIVE?

THE SUN SMOKE SPREAD SEAWORD.

MUSTARD ON RELISH BASKING DOGS.

SPARE ME SOAP. CLEAN THIS WASTREL.

SO WHAT HEARTLESS

JAW DROPPING? BEWARE.

MY WORDS

DROPPED SKELETON RATTLES:

SHEER BEGGARY:

CAUTIONS FOR MAIDENS:

RED & GREEN LIGHTS

AWAIT BOUNCES AROUND

CAUTIOUS YELLOW FLASHES.

TUMBLING TUMBLEWEED BEWARE!
