Get Your Affairs In Order

Get your affairs in order, 

a familiar voice whispered

out of the blue. 


Thanks for the warning, 

but there is nothing 

left to do.


No lingering love,

no financial strings,

no unsung songs.


Only one request, if I may.

Can we skip the drama? 


I prefer a peaceful, 

transfer of power.

Something sardonic
Can be a real tonic!

Thank you Keith! ? Great observation. When I was writing this piece, I didn’t even see the duality until I got to the last line. I originally thought it was a message from the divine, but perhaps it got clouded from all the noise. I love the irony. The muses and mystics are on roll in this climate!

Now this poem I like as it encapsulates not only what is being said but a profoundly loud silence also.

Well one Vautaw

Thank you
