Good morrow populace! Our avian friends are out in force serenading a return to warmer climes. These harbingers of Spring are exceedingly welcome. Today’s work is the result of aggregating many years of managing people and being managed by a wide assortment of individuals and their “styles”. It is not keyed in on any one workplace, school, boss etc. but rather is meant to conflate the experience of them all. Also brand new, it was a rather prolific weekend for poetry in the Blaikie household here. POLC, March 25, 2018. Thank you!


Condemnation can be best

When it procures a greater zest

Anger though for anger’s sake

Leaves only carnage in its wake

If what you want is greater peace

It goes to they who says the least

Power lives in mute command

Fear makes naught but shifting sand.

I don’t generally like my new pieces right away but I’m quite pleased with how this one turned out. I see something in my head and grasp like someone drowning for the right words. Sometimes you find them, sometimes it dies. Occasionally though the Tetris blocks fall all on their own into place to vanish the rows beneath.

You may hear from me agian this evening so I’ll close out for now with the following thought. Do something today, tomorrow you will thank you for! Or don’t. I’m not particularly invested.
