It’s In The Air…by richard lynn livesay

Please don’t mess with my melons on the vine

Or send me a belated Valentine

For Spring has sprung and the bees are in the air

And I just planted a cactus garden in my underwear (actually in a planter box)

 

The ducks are laying eggs and the geese are honking

The trees are green but the pollen is causing coughing

The March of time is slowly moving out the door

And April readies her buckets of rain and more

 

The world seems on its normal course of chaos

The haves want more, continuing in their pay-offs

Which only affects my poetry, not in the least

Even when the super computer is named the Beast

 

Cycles come and go and this one is waning

House cleaning is a trend and so is complaining

I know there can be a future that everyone can enjoy

As money is all a game and the system could re-deploy

 

Real change requires a revolution of some kind

And some are scared of words and march in time

I reach for peace and pray we learn to get along

As those less fortunate are humans that do belong

 

So we’re each responsible for how we feel

And can make a difference in something that is real

As the little things can mount up and be a trend

Give a little, be a part of the positive and transcend
