All Smiles

If the goal ain’t much,
failure to reach it ain’t a helluva lot either.


Although, no matter where you go
“It’s all entertainment,”
no out-of-towner can ever
properly appreciate the local fun.


It is a wise beast who would inoculate himself
against biting the rabid.


Any form of “Real justice” lies in improved sight.


Once upon a time,
there was guy who could make himself instantly smile
just by thinking about it.


“And,” proclaimed the mighty City speaker,
“The truth shall set you free.” And one of his
close relatives, in the crowd thought,
“Yeah, except from your truth.” 
(What can be more cutting, more unkind,
than the venomous tongue of an ungrateful neuron.)
