Have You Ever?
By Scott D. Zachary
Have you ever pounded on the walls
Out of pure jubilation?
Have you ever stopped at a traffic light in a seedy district
And howled a sweet hyenic tune?
Have you ever set out for a long swim
And returned to your boat four hours later?
Have you ever counted the flies on a lion's face in Africa
With only air between you and him?
Have you ever searched for a job in the Middle East
And settled for one in Johannesburg?
Have you ever admired Mount Everest
From the top of a nearby mountain?
Have you ever paused after a ten mile jog
And asked someone, "Which way is south?"
Have you ever set out from Luxembourg City and awoke,
Shivering under a bridge, wondering which country you were in?
Have you ever planned a cruise to Antarctica and Chile,
Wrapping it up with a New Year’s party in Rio?
Have you ever felt the sorrow of hearing a lady say,
"I’ve got fake plants until I find a home where plants are happy?"
Like the song says: "Life is a highway.
I want to ride it all night long!"
I beg the gods that everyone may find happy jubilation!

|I have known both the good and the bad. The balance makes for a very intersting energy :-)
Have you climbed a mountain in a jeep that never quite hits the ground with all four tires? and then hear the silence of all who have been there before you?
