Marching to a Different Drummer

God said,

“Judge not, that ye be not judged.”

Ta-boom, ta-boom-boom-boom-boom-boom-boom.

Eliot said,

“It is never too late to be what you might have been . . .”

Rat-a-tat-tat, rat-a-tat-tat-tat.

Picasso said,

“Every child is an artist.

The problem is

How to remain an artist once he grows up . . .”

Tat-a-rat-tat-tat, tat-a-rat-tat.

Mozart said,

“The music is not in the notes,

But in the silence between . . .”

Rat  –  –  –  –  –  –  –  tat-tat.

Einstein said,

“Logic will get you from A to B.

Imagination will take you everywhere.”


Nin said,

“We don’t see things as they are,

We see them as we are . . . “

Tat-a-rat-tat, rat-a-tat-rat-rat.

I say,

“Working in solitude every day

To write poetry makes me deliriously happy . . .”


Don’t ever condemn a person

For marching to a different drummer.
