Her eyes!

She watched Ignorance enter the room.

No obsequious sycophantry in her glare.

How naked are the emperor

and his bloated toadies

under her perspicacious gaze.

 

 

Carnival of Life June 5, 2015

Our graduating students chose the theme of CARNIVAL! for their Graduation ceremony today.  I wrote a poem for the teacher they asked to be the special speaker.  Here it is:

ERS GRAD 2015 POEM

A carnival is quite a bore if you are there alone

And surely melancholy could seep into your bones

But in the night, with all your friends

A carnival’s great fun, the spinning lights will mesmerize

The laughter never ends.

Cherish time together 

at this your graduation

Your memories and histories are worth the celebration.

You may live far apart as you journey through your lives

But always choose what’s positive

and you will choose to thrive.

For life can be a carnival, it’s fun and fearful, too

Remember Eagle River,

as we’ll fondly think of you.
