Changing Fashion

Fashion Thoughts

He laughed at her
For her oft-changing fashion
That last year’s clothes
Were no good anymore

And thought it an example
Of how shallow she was
And always would be

As for her?
She believed in doing good
And always tried to live it
Appearance was just expression
And as she shed her old ways
She changed how she appeared

Meanwhile —
She noticed that he
Kept changing ethics –
His so-called core beliefs
Depending on intellectual fashions

You know, I think,
Perhaps —
Her type of fashion’s
Better after all

Parking Lot Morality

Parking Lot

Consider your basic parking lot
Or maybe you would rather not
But there you see what people are
As they attempt to park their car

First: everything goes, I’d say
For people drive in any way
That suits them, never mind the rules:
Those things are for those other fools

Second – this one is for sure –
What no one saw, did not occur.
They’ll scrape somebody’s car by chance
Then leave without a second glance

And then, I guess, I would say last
That people drive way too damn fast
As though their silly shopping spree
Was some sort of emergency

No rules, no right, and with great haste
This is the way our time we waste
No inch, no quarter do we give
For people park just as they live
