Poetic Muse II

ALL SMALL

Doesn’t matter how big a man

Big bolstering impressive frames

 

Doesn’t matter a dicky bird what

A man might say

swinging ball and chains

Raising shoulders to ear line

Flexing muscles and gasping aloud

 

Doesn’t matter

No answer to be found

In his brain

 

‘Cause the final curtain to all must come

The stepping over – out of range

The hereafter beckons – the call goes out

We are leaving the planet there is no doubt

 

Big confident mentor to you

Whose got it together in mouth and tongue

Money in the bank – and having fun

 

Film star smile – and intellectual bent

Doesn’t matter – when it comes to – good-bye

Where’s he headed for – beyond the sky?

Big as King Kong – or dominant stance

Been round the world and back to France

 

Doesn’t matter if alcohol fuelled

Macho man or Mr. World

He’s as small as a bird –

a robin’s territory

may be his domain –

but ruling roosts is no gain –

when it comes to the departure lounge

 

You feel safe when he’s around

Sitting with your smile at his performing rant

You’d be like him – but admiration

says you can’t

Don’t put your trust in got-it-together-guys

They are as clueless as you –

why are you surprised?

 

So take note and remember the final line:

The shortness of our sparkly fuse

And start to ponder what we all have to lose

 

It’s time to take stock

(Have a vitamin C drink)

Men are less impressive than you think

 

So envy no one – be yourself

Accept your smallness on a day of grace

And you will find the answers

For what lies beyond outer space
