Reynald Romea Luminarias

          Civilization is a limitless multiplication
          of unnecessary necessities.
                                             -Mark Twain 
likewise, i’ll be
light-footed today.
i shall not trample on
the helpless dandelion.
(o they’re great for salad
with a light touch of lemon)
i shall be an enlightened nomad,
building no fence; taking no offense;
        not causing anyone to stumble on
                                any lofty or petty thing.
i’ll leap like a gazelle, fly for i have wings;
i’ll batter no butterfly nor hurt a chimpanzee;
sing i will, alighting on the limb of a flame tree

  1. This is the essence of a simple life of peace and blissful contentment! Ironic, yes - outright, humorous. Play it again Sam!
