Theme: In hospitable settings, when your ship is sinking, your attitude is stinking Often times, we forget that people around us love us. We are not kind enough, we are too pointed to share, yet these people are the audience in our lives. This poem calls for us to change our attitude.
“GOOD NIGHT”, SINGS THE FAT LADY
Scent leaf and bitter leaf taste different in soups,
Vinegar and honey, sour and sweeten; potion served with meals,
Is the story not about their attitudes?
When the chandelier is called into incandescent light,
Is it not to reflect that which burns from within?
Its turn and shake, reflects its attitude.
When called to share the golden moments of another’s life,
Bringing joy and laughter is all it takes, is it not?
Sour acts, blame and pride, soils the lot in bad attitude.
“Good night” sings the slim leading lady, fattened by theatre of life,
Is there any act to please your audience after that greeting?
Is it not a loss to drama that is portrayed in your bad attitude?
“Good night to you too”, singing fat lady,
But your borrowed black slip shows, over your new shoes, with bad attitude,
Your new show has thus lost its soul with no success hoped.
