Hate

I pondered the things that I hate

And found them to be too few

Though there are many that I dislike

Real hatred I eschew

I do not like being disliked

Nor getting caught in freezing rain

Rhubarb that’s not sweet

Or the needless causing of pain

But when all is said and done

There’s one thing I hope you see

That the things you claim that you hate

Are just a matter of degree

Little train – adventure find

Mysteries lay bare

On track to your destiny

Let this journey take you there

 

Though chugging into darkness

Into things as yet unknown

May discover all your wants and dreams

And claim them for your own

Fandango’s Dog Days of August: Fandango’s challenge was to write on the of theme “something you found.”  The prompt morphed in my mind into the process of “finding,” or of the discovery of experiences new.  Who knows what thrills might be found next in places unexpected?

Monday – Day of the Moon

Beginning of the work-week

Which can’t be over too soon

It is oft a day of struggling

To get yourself dressed

After a weekend of parties, and all the rest

But there are – about every blue moon

Bank Holiday Mondays to our boon

Extending the weekend

From two days to three

Giving the illusion of being free
