THE MIND OF RD REVILO

  • Funny, Some People Think
  • War will be different for them
  • They see the deadly destruction
  • But theirs won’t make them a victim
  • They’ll start the fight on Friday
  • Night
  • Then fight
  • Until Sunday
  • Back to work on Monday
  • And if they get injured or hurt
  • The enemy will nurture
  • Them back to work
  • So they can fight some more
  • And even up the score
  • No loss of electricity
  • Water will flow
  • No pain toward victory
  • No disappearance of people they know
  • It’ll be like a picnic
  • Only ants are pests
  • We’ll be in and out quick
  • Unlike the rest
  • Once they knowwe are serious
  • Fear will make the enemy delirious
  • And sue for peace
  • Just beating our chests will scare the beast
  • Our thunderous protests
  • Will make them confess
  • We’ll sing, we’ll cheer
  • The brave will bring up the rear
  • We’ll snarl, our fists we’ll ball
  • We’ll persist, insist…

These Mornings

 

That April Chuck bought a lightweight three-piece suit
from Brook’s Brothers.

The next day he dressed and explored the office buildings
in San Francisco’s Financial District.

He liked the Alcoa Building and arrived every morning
at nine to ride the elevator.

Chuck always got out on the thirteenth floor and
he always took the stairwell down.

Chuck eventually made friends with the other office
workers who arrived and entered the elevator promptly
at nine.

Eventually everyone said good morning to Chuck and
Chuck felt loved and accepted.

Then one day a trim young executive in a snazzy Calvin
Klein asked Chuck why he always wore the same
suit to work; and it was time to find another building.
