Emily Dickinson

It is easy to work when the soul is at play

244

It is easy to work when the soul is at play—
But when the soul is in pain—
The hearing him put his playthings up
Makes work difficult—then—

It is simple, to ache in the Bone, or the Rind—
But Gimlets—among the nerve—
Mangle daintier—terribler—
Like a Panter in the Glove—

Money makes the world go round.

Honesty becomes corruption
Loyalty is near it extinction
Though peculiar it may sound
Money makes the world go round.


People’s happiness is now money
Truthfulness seems a joke so funny
Many examples you’ll find around
Money makes the world go round.


Now jobs depend totally on salaries
Artistic halls are now empty galleries
Many witnesses can be found
Money makes the world go round.


Money! Money! Leads to crimes
Happy moments turn to sorrowful times
But bad deeds are bound to rebound
Money makes the world go round.


Hard work leads to true success
Hardworking never face this silly mess
Here LOYALTY and TRUTHFULNESS is found
Money makes the world go round.
-Tanvi Rattan

Rumi

Passion makes the old medicine new:

Passion makes the old medicine new:
Passion lops off the bough of weariness.
Passion is the elixir that renews:
how can there be weariness
when passion is present?
Oh, don't sigh heavily from fatigue:
seek passion, seek passion, seek passion!

Emily Dickinson

Teach Him—When He makes the names

227

Teach Him—When He makes the names—
Such an one—to say—
On his babbling—Berry—lips—
As should sound—to me—
Were my Ear—as near his nest—
As my thought—today—
As should sound—
"Forbid us not"—
Some like "Emily."

The Comma That Makes The Big Difference

the children who walk and pass along the road
where your house is facing are always noisy

you pay attention to what they are talking about
you call it nonsense and it angers your quest for deep understanding

you are quite sad and very unhappy
in your chosen niche of silent isolation

they are carefree and unconcerned about you
happy about their nonsense & selfishness


there is a big difference between you and them
that i think, you must explore some more

it is the comma that makes the big difference
in the sentence that you have duly imposed upon your self.

What Makes the Clouds Echo Roar

What makes the clouds echo roar?
As thunder, makes it's pitch
dark and dreary, becomes the sky
What makes the clouds echo roar?

As the sky opens up, and it begins to pour,
no where to run, no where to hide, as I,
head for cover, and still wonder,
what makes the clouds echo roar?

I look around, and see a door
swiftly as a rabbit, I reach there,
I'm really drenched, and still I ask,
What makes the clouds echo roar?

I shake off the water, on to the floor
the rain has stopped now, as I ask once again,
what makes the clouds echo roar?
do you know what? It dosn't really matter anymore.

The Dose Makes The Poison

Paracelsus meaning equal
to or greater than Celsus
a famed Swiss Renaissance

alchemist astrologer botanist
physician and general occultist
not first systematic botanist

believed certain balances
of minerals in patient bodies
and also certain illnesses

of body had chemical remedies
remedies that could cure bodies
Paracelsus knew this to be true

“All things are poison,
and nothing is without poison;
only the dose permits

something not to be poisonous.'
In layman’s terms this means
'The dose makes the poison.'

substances considered toxic
are harmless in small doses
but even an ordinarily harmless

substance can
be deadly if
over-consumed

He Makes The Things Between Us To Be True (Collins Sestets)

I am set to love God more than anybody
His principles, character lives in me
the very essence of love is such
that one cannot love a person overmuch,
He makes the things between us to be true
which brings His love to that in me and you.

My joys are many, my sorrows are few
and every day with you is something new
while to me you are much more than a friend
the depth of our feelings is without end,
He makes the things between us to be true
which brings His love to that in me and you.

Daily I only want to love you more,
being together with you that I adore
with you small hand in mine on life's pathway
while we constantly head to the new day,
He makes the things between us to be true
which brings His love to that in me and you.

Who Makes The Better Pair?

They live together,
Eat from the similar plate together,
Sleep on the foam bed together
And they bark at the neighbor together.
-A man and his high breed dog.

It is a sharing of the haves,
It is a world of their own.

They too live together,
Eat from the same garbage together,
Sleep on the uneven pavement together
And they flee at the sight of men in uniform.
-A street dweller and his low breed dog.

It is a rearing of the have-nots,
It is yet another world of their own.


Who makes the better pair of the two?
I look up unto the infinite sky
And hears a strange voice thundering into my ears,
"I am the greatest leveller of all",
And his cold hands begin to descend.

The pairs make a beeline and up in the sky
Above my head the thundering voice chuckles on.

Love Makes The World Go Round

(clarke / sylvester)
Love makes the world go round and around
Love makes the world go round and around
Love makes you feel three feet off the ground
Love makes the world go round
You should know its happened before
You should have known what was in store
You should know not to do it encore
You should have known before
You did it your way it never worked out
Mr right turned out mr wrong
You wont change your ways because you believe
In love is where you belong
You did it your way it never worked out
Mr right turned out mr wrong
You wont change your ways because you believe
In love is where you belong
Cant you see, loves thrown out of the door
Cant you see, no-one loves anymore
Cant you see, my worlds on the floor
Without love can the world go round
And around, and around, and around, and around
Without love, without love, can the world go round, yeah

Black Mouse Makes The World

Black mouse makes
the world

without frames

reaching through
shows empty hands
to each and the sky

confusing sky for
hands clinched in
tight yellow too much

feeling nothing green
is about to happen
or teach


clouds

hands


what do either
care drifting
beyond the

moon


the fiddler plays on

a tune about rain/leaves
in patterns upon

an apron
of rain


rabbit dances with-
out caution knowing
what holes to avoid

cuts loose
awash in blue

holes being of a
royal hue

a silver net
trap set inches
from soft pink
clueless paws pattering

musical notes of
lavender wash
kick up from
blind delight -
just dust clouds
before a fall

the bearded stranger

(red hangs the sweep
of his chin)

hangs back

in cobalt shadow
does not notice

so busy looking
for giants

Black Mouse

Black Mouse laughs

writes with its tail

something

just something

Money Makes the World Go Round

ft. Daz

[Scarface:]

Money makes the world go round
Money makes me do all things I do
Hang with my homies smoke weed drink brew
Ride down Belford one deep and ?? crew
And money makes the world go round
Money makes the world go round
Living in a mansion one day with my wife
Stack me up some papers these days one night
If wind stop blowing these days than my sight
Winds start blowing I'm paid trump tight
Got to have papers these days in my life
I got to have paper these days of my life

[Chorus: Repeat 6X]

Money makes the world go round

Without a doubt
They all want to see about a clout
They don't know
Don't want to know or see what its about
We faced with danger do any thing for the paper
Scarred for life of the street mentality done made us
Watch out for the snakes and fakes
Out to take what's yours so prepare and beware
Money makes the world go round for some niggers
Money makes the world kill all niggers quicker
Its reala

What Makes The World Go round

Once I was a fool dreamin my life away, and then yesterday I found you
Lookin for me, draggin your heart around at the lost and found
I love you, youre the only one who could make me feel love was smart
I feel you deep inside of me, beatin up against my heart
And I found out, I found out, what makes the world go round
Oh I found out, really found out, what makes the world go round
You came up to me, turnin my head around, I was hangin on
Until you looked up at me, thrashin your bedroom eyes, I was paralyzed
I love you, youre the only one who could make me feel love was smart
I feel you deep inside of me, beatin up against my heart
Chorus:
And I found out, oh I found out, what makes the world go round
I found out, really found out, what makes the world go round and round
And I found out, really found out, what makes the world go round
I found out, really found out, what makes the world go round
Whenever I touch you, you know that I want you
I love you forever, whenever youre ready
Chorus repeats out...

Love Makes The World Go Round

Make love not war we say
It's easy to recite
But it don't mean a damn
Unless we're gonna fight
But not with guns and knives
We've got to save the lives
Of every boy and girl
That grows up in this world

Chorus:

There's hunger everywhere
We've got to take a stand
Reach out for someone's hand
Love makes the world go round
It's easy to forget
If you don't hear the sound
Of pain and prejudice
Love makes the world go round

They think that love's a lie
But we can teach them how to try
Love means to understand
Reach out for someone's hand
'Cause everything you do
Comes back in time to you
We have to change our fate
Before it gets too late

(chorus)

Don't judge a man 'til you've been standin' in his shoes
You know that we're all so quick to look away
'Cause it's the easy thing to do
You know that what I say is true

Love makes the world go round...

Make love not war we say
It's easy to recite
But it don't mean a damn
Unless we're gonna fight

(chorus)

La la la la la la la...

Comprehension Makes The Difference

I don't compile.
Collect or inspect.
I interpret.
I don't dissect,
I erect.
I research to prove,
What I do has merit.
I bare within me that which is seen,
Outside where the breeze is there.
Refreshened in crisp air,
I cleanse.
I carry what I choose.
I refuse excessive baggage.

My initiative innovates,
And builds.

I seek to reach.
Not speak about defeat,
In pleasant expected acceptance.
I want to know...
Therefore I am curious.

Not a bit am I nosey.
Comprehension makes the difference.
I've begun to recognize,
There is a benefit that comes...
With motivated persistence.

And when I stand,
My eyes are clear.
I stay alert to ideas I hear.
My initiative innovates,
And builds.

I don't compile.
Collect or inspect.
I interpret.
I don't dissect,
I erect.
I research to prove,
What I do has merit.
I bare within me that which is seen,
Outside where the breeze is there.
Refreshened in crisp air,
I cleanse.
I carry what I choose.
I refuse excessive baggage.

There is a benefit that comes...
With motivated persistence.
And comprension makes the difference.

What Makes The Irish Heart Beat

(Van Morrison)
All that trouble all that grief
That's why I had to leave
Staying away too tong is in defeat
Why I'm singing this song
Why I'm heading back home
That's what makes the Irish heart beat
I'm just like a hobo riding a train
I'm like a gangster living in Spain
Have to watch my back and I'm running out of time
When I roll the dice again
If lady luck will call my name
That's what makes the Irish heart beat
Well that's what makes it beat
When I'm standing on the street
And I'm standing underneath this Wrigley's sign
Oh so far away from home
But I know I've got to roam
That's what makes the Irish heart beat
And it was off to foreign climes
On the Piccadilly line
We were standing underneath the Wrigley's sign
So far away from home
Well I know I've got to roam
That s what makes the Irish heart beat
Just like a sailor out on the foam
Any port in a storm
Where we tend to burn the candle at both ends
Down the corridors of fame
Like the spark ignites the flame
That's what makes the Irish heart beat
But I roll the dice again
If lady luck will call my name
That s what makes the Irish heart beat
Oh, that's what makes the Irish heart beat
That's what makes the Irish heart beat

Mary Ellen Makes The Moment Count

(paul waaktaar)
Mary cries out: for the love of god
As shes walking out of the laundromat
Down the street and its the short way home
Feeling special cause shes so alone
But we know:
(the worlds full of lonely people)
And it shows
(the worlds full of lonely people)
She shrugs her coat off and unlocks the door
Eats her dinner on the kitchen floor
Writes a poem and turns the radio on
Every singer sings the same old song
And it goes:
(the worlds full of lonely people)
And it shows
(the worlds full of lonely people)
But when we she wanted me to go
She just had to let it show
To bring me down if she wanted me to leave
She just wore it on her sleeve
But at least, I was around
But when we she wanted me to go
She just had to let it show
To bring me down if she wanted me to leave
She just wore it on her sleeve
At least, I was around
Mary ellen makes the moment count
As shes looking through old photographs
Pictures taken from an early age
Faces look back at her from the page
And they say
(the worlds full of lonely people)
Its ok
(the worlds full of lonely people)
Its ok
(the worlds full of lonely people)
But when we she wanted me to go
She just had to let it show
To bring me down if she wanted me to leave
She just wore it on her sleeve
But at least, I was around
I was around
I was around
I was around
Mary ellen makes the moment count
