Just a little food for thought today...

I've been on sort of a poetry-reading kick lately, and since my own creativity fails me tonight, I thought I'd share with you someone else's.

O Karma, Dharma, pudding and pie,
gimme a break before I die:
grant me wisdom, will, & wit,
purity, probity, pluck, & grit.
Trustworthy, loyal, helpful, kind,
gimme great abs & a steel-trap mind,
and forgive, Ye Gods, some humble advice--
these little blessings would suffice
to beget an earthly paradise:
make the bad people good--
and the good people nice;
and before our world goes over the brink,
teach the believers how to think.

--Philip Appleman

A simple, pleasant little poem, but as Hayley would say, "Think about it, won't you?"
