A Loaded Explanation

One night, in a fitful dream, a voice said to the king,
“A man who will smile at anything is a threat to the empire.”
Daybreak’s regal conclusion:
Too much late night snacking,
or too much undigested power.


For some,
a loaded explanation
can be more dangerous than a ballistic muffin,
or a carton of the hives.


To a really impatient rebel, warning signs aren’t fair warning –
but "out there" – what is?


One guy over behind a history tree advised his kid thusly,
“You best stiffen-up in this life, because there ain’t no
consumer protection groups in heaven.”


And leave us all Recall and Remember:
Great thoughts are their own re…no…wait,
Great thoughts are someone else's reward.
