History Repeats

History repeats forever

Wandering in a wild fit

As a child longing to endeavor.

-

Knights in armor fight whomever

Opposes the ideals of corrupted wit

History repeats forever.

-

Rome falls anew with a simple lever

One may have thought to ponder and sit

As a child longing to endeavor.

-

Napoleon rises and falls whenever

A tinge of French pride is unfit;

History repeats forever.

-

Tomorrow brings another war wherever

A brazen sense of bravado does permit;

As a child longing to endeavor.

-

The future holds the key to change—never

For it is obvious to deduce the writ:

History repeats forever

As a child longing to endeavor.

All I Wish

All I wish is to steal a kiss from you

Succulent and tangy as a citrus breeze

I'd paint it saffron and hide it from view.

-

The world would never know the clue

For shadowed passes oft do people fail to perceive

All I wish is to steal a kiss from you.

-

Love and lust always seem to surface anew

A titillating objective floats about with ease

I'd paint it saffron and hide it from view

-

Whispered jealousy keeps circulating in lieu

Of the more scholarly words which one could release;

All I wish is to steal a kiss from you.

-

We stare with innocent eyes askew

At the flickering orb above the summer seas;

I'd paint it saffron and hide it from view.

-

Now we must say our bittersweet adieu,

Yet before the winds part us with unease

All I wish is to steal a kiss from you,

I'd paint it saffron and hide it from view.
