A Poem In Three Prescriptions


Myopia





A fly was in my oatmeal and I begged my mom, “Come see!”
She looked and laughed, “That’s nothing but a raisin there you see.”

“How sure are you?” I asked my mom. “I thought I saw it jump
From that small piece of cinnamon, to that big oatmeal lump!”

“It did not,” she exclaimed. “You just refuse to see I’m right.
“Now, take that raisin in your spoon and swallow every bite!” 


“Look there! It moved again, and it’s a fat horse-fly!” I whined.
"A raisin,” she rebuked me. “You have merely closed your mind.”

Just then the fly leapt from my bowl and buzzed around in flight.
Aha!” I yelled, “Whose mind is closed? You’re wrong and I am right!”

She spoke not, but then washed my bowl out in the kitchen basin,
And shook her head in awe, “My word! A real-life flying raisin!”

Scott,

Very original in content, and I was smiling by the end. Had to laugh about the raisin/fly imagery. A pleasure to read~

hahaha What a great write! How often people become so fixed in their own views. A wonderful way to illustrate this using humour. Well done!

Do What Matters Most by William Cottringer

This book summarizes life's ten toughest tests with ten passwords each to pass these tests. The current overload, speed of change and chaos are all summarized well enough to get to..
