Korean Vilanelle

Korean Vilanelle

Be kind in moments when the birds sing out.
So much is made of petty things each day.
Wake up to fill your senses, clear all doubt.

It does not matter if you’re frail or stout.
You do not dance alone, so learn to play.
Be kind in moments when the birds sing out.

Your success may be what you’re about,
Until matters of the mind get in the way.
Wake up to fill your senses, clear all doubt.

Money should not be, but is what gives us clout.
Each day do something to help those who labor for low pay.
Be kind in moments when the birds sing out.

Cheer for your foe even when you suffer a great rout.
Karma outweighs fate, so act without delay.
Wake up to fill your senses, clear all doubt.

Unless a saint, many will see you as a lout.
Do what it takes to make your best friends stay.
Be kind in moments when the birds sing out.
Wake up to fill your senses, clear all doubt.

Quote Unquote, George W. Bush

“We will succeed unless we quit.”
– George W. Bush 16 November 2006

“The only way we can lose is if we quit,”
Our leader went to Vietnam to say.
He skipped that war to golf and lounge a bit.

No jobs mean Iraqis queue to take a hit,
I wonder if historians will yeah or nay:
“The only way we can lose is if we quit.”

The lanterns up from hell are dimly lit,
Who will be the next in line to pay?
He skipped this war to golf and lounge a bit.

At us the whole world loads and throws its shit,
Jail the bums, impeach, without delay!
The only way we can win is if he quits.

Don’t stop screaming, throw conniption fits!
The black hole we’re in must somehow turn to gray,
He skipped this war to golf and lounge a bit.

As poverty encroaches, no time to sit,
Our debt already causes disarray.
“The only way we can lose is if we quit.”
He skipped this war to golf and lounge a bit.
