MULE FALL REGRETS!

MULE FALL REGRETS!

My mule went left,

And I went right,

On a mountain trail

Of great height,

 

I grabbed for the reins,

But none was there,

All I could grab

Was handfuls of air,

 

I fell and fell

From that great height,

At first, I simply screamed

With all my might,

 

But I stopped screaming

After a while,

Then, suddenly,

I began to smile!

 

“No more taxes!”

“And no more debt!”

But then, once again, I became

Filled with regret,

 

“No more fishing,

And no more sweethearts,”

“And I bet the ground

Will break me apart!”

 

 

And so, yes, that is when,

I began to scream again!

The moral: when your mule goes left,

Don’t go right, and you’d better hold on tight!  😊

LIFE IS LIKE AN APPLE TREE

LIFE IS LIKE AN APPLE TREE

Life is like an apple tree,

It’s difficult to climb,

We see the juicy apples,

We reach for the sublime,

 

We learn that many apples

Are filled with worms, what’s more,

We learn that many apples

Are rotten to the core,

 

Sometimes, we reach great heights,

The world is ours, but then,

Sometimes, we fail and fall,

And then, begin again.
