This breathless, constant shock and awe
with how things really are.
“Roll with it, Baby.” Steve Winwood sang.
“Get over it!” rocked the Eagles!
Life’s surprises are great and small.
Very few are worth the undue, overblown,
Distressing attention you give them.
” …give Peace a chance” (John and Oko),
Starting with thoughtful consideration,
Peace and quiet, and respect for your listener.
