I Tell You

I Tell You

                                                                        Life on the Edge ~ Philip Brent Harris


It is not as close to Spanish as you think.
Nor, I tell you, does it taste like chicken.
Although we are much closer to the brink
And believe you me, the plot does thicken.
I cannot tell you this with a nod and wink.
It makes my mouth dry, my pulse quicken,
Left it all too late, we may let glasses clink.
Should we do otherwise, even as we sicken,
Smile, sing, laugh and into darkness sink?
Yet, we lie, know it can’t taste like chicken
It contains all elements from a through zinc


Peace is Purpose, Nonviolence is Strength,  Diversity is Unity, Empathy is Empowerment
