For a Joyous Foole (tankas)

For a Joyous Foole

I never listened
‘Sauce’ got me into trouble
I had attitude
No respect –  just a smart ass
Their lessons bored me to tears

Travelled, saw the world
Wasn’t really too impressed
L-C-D: power
How  to wield that potent stuff
How to be a great big boss

Discipline of joy
Now that’s a study worth while
All the rest’s a waste
‘Cause you’re gonna die, and how!
What’d you do with what’ve learned?

For:  Ye Olde Fool’s Graduation
