Autobiograpical Poem

I am a simple poem,
It's plain for all to see.
No haiku, limerick or sonnet,
Just simple rhyme for me.

I'm on my second verse just now,
So soon it will be three.
Uncomplicated, very plain,
So easy, Oh! so free.

There are no causes I espouse,
For nothing I campaign,
I do not speak of love or lust,
I never speak of pain.

Some people say that I'm just words,
They don't know how I thrive.
I tell them I am born each day,
I'm very much alive.

Do Not Post Your Poem Here

Do not post your poem here
Unless you've something worth a say!
You must not waste a space like this,
For space can waste away!

Do not post your poem here
With words which make no sense!
Be careful when you post it here
That you use the proper tense!

Do not post your poem here
Just to fill a space with words!
A poem should be well thought out,
Was it meant to be absurd?

Do not post your poem here
If in cliches you would write.
A poem should be fresh, yes sharp -
You'll know when it's just right!

People I'd Like to Speak To - Now!

To Jesus I would ask,
Are you truly the Son of God?
Did you really work those miracles,
Are the Gospels your real Word?

With John Kennedy I'd relax,
Tell a joke, have a beer.
Tell him of the Oswald problem,
See him smile, shed a tear?

I'd sing 'My Way' with Sinatra,
King of cool, big band sound.
I'd ask him of his final hours -
Wih no Brat Pack to be found.

John Lennon mightn't speak to me,
Too intelligent perchance,
When I'd tell him of the world at war
Would he say 'Give peace a chance'?
