No Short Supply of Meaning
 

 

Symbols take up the most room
when it comes to meaning, life
examined, or church on Sunday,

Mondayís ham, eggs and politics,

Tuesday, bring on the 40,000
symbols stocking a grocerís shelf,

Wednesday, aw, should-oughtas
stretched to the health horizon,  
right and wrong, fraught with
anxiety and modern medicine.

Thursday I chose from a wealth
of metaphor, between solutions
and junk thought, looking for my
supply trove of earthly meaning.
What Iím reading is a recording   
of wisdom for when we get older
and all we can think to say is
weíve heard that song before.

Friday itís a toss up, preparing
for the rest of your life, whether
you go by the bullet list or the
corporate forecast, cheat sheet,  
or crib notes, the science FAQís
frequently absurd quandaries.
History doesnít repeat, but it
rhymes like a beat-box jingle for
a hot new kitchen appliance.

Saturdayís solutions, erasers on
pencils, tapes on diapers, come
as you make do, yet no one ever
solved the expansion of empires   
dilemma except to run back to
the woods and hide for millennia.

Itís Sunday again, youíve boxed
yourself in as usual, you meant
to think outside the box. Meaning
is the name for what you invent.
