The Best At Theft

Freedom and opportunity,
To lust and limit those who benefit.
Has come to an end...
For those who oppose,
The movement of inclusion.

And coming to threaten with regret,
Is a socialism feared...
Bringing those of greed to tears.
With visions of sharing,
An exclusive gluttony endeared.

And fighting they do,
Against the removal of fences.
Constructed to protect,
The reality of their being...
The best at theft!

The Best Solution

Ending all acts of degrading participation,
That makes one feel underestimated...
Is the best solution,
To keep from having deeds done reduced...
By those producing critique and abuse.

It becomes easy to release comments to defeat.
Than to take a stand on one's feet,
To make public what one believes.
Especially when one is seeking popularity,
Instead of clarity many refuse to accept and receive.

To Be The Best You Can Be Ought To Be Good Enough

There is good in most people and some in their ways kind
And amongst the egotistical greatness is a state of mind
And some very famous people towards humility inclined
But a truly perfect human being in the World you will not find
But to live as a good person is the best you can wish to be
Though with that I feel certain many would disagree
Millions daydream of wealth and fame and it would seem to me
That you will not find many people for to embrace poverty
But to be the best you can be ought to be good enough
In a Human World where millions are hungry, poor and homeless and living and sleeping rough
Always be kind to others and help those of help in need
One of the main causes of human poverty has to be human greed
Life is not an Earthly Paradise and many do live it tough
But to be the best you can be ought to be good enough.

Irritation Is Not The Best Feeling To Begin A Poem With

IRRITATION IS NOT THE BEST FEELING TO BEGIN A POEM WITH

Irritation is not the best Feeling to begin a poem with
But the great heat, the great humidity
The slowness of my mind on Motzei Shabbat
The many errands that must be done tomorrow
The inability to begin true work,
The news of another anti- Semitic utterance by the Nobel Prize winner Gunter Grass
Above all the worry over the health of a family member
All these irritate and disturb-

And I can at best write a few plain lines
Begin to work
To make myself feel better
But not really influence what is outside myself-

And too the irritation that my poem and my words
Will reach a few at best
While the mendacious former Waffen SS member's poem
Has already made its hateful way to headlines in the world-

Oh it is wonderful to be an obscure nothing in writing
When it is only my own name and reputation which are involved,
But when it means I cannot really help the people I care about
This irritation this frustration anger so-

Oh how I just pray that my loved one
Will be after the doctor's visit
Better tonight.

God you are the best

You are mass and space
And everything else in It;

He pretends to be happy
But His heart is unhappy
In reality

The Best Peace to Achieve

The best peace to achieve,
Is the kind others believe...
An attention is sought.
And none comes!

laid all field to rest
Watch him run

the best about God

the best thing - about God - is
he talks more like a human being
- than many - who profess they
know him better

For all around me are fruits of love and,

The Best Way to Live

Old folks say the best way to live
Is when love, you learn to give
And for those who have somehow hurt you
For your own sake, forgive.

The Best State

'How can I know the best state?'
In the way that thou know'st the best woman;
Namely, my friend, that the world ever is silent of both.

The Best Teacher

Experience is the best teacher!
Ansd she belongs to you;
But there is no smoke without a fire! !
Because broken dreams are very hard to solve.

The Best Time

The best time
To cry is in the
Silence of the night
When the tears in your
Eyes glisten like the
Rains on the window
And you know…
No one will know

The chief is not the best

It is not that the best in the skills
Becomes a captain of a team.
It requires some other skills for that.
The chief is not the best of all.

The latest is the best

Every time I selected a pair of specs
To replace the old ones,
I held them the best I have got.
So is the case with the woman
I fall in love with.

The Best Gospel

if you want
to be liberated,
get down in the ditch
and start digging
with your neighbor!

sometimes a shovel,
and a willing set of hands,
are the best gospel!

This Day Is Always The Best For Me

this day is always
the best i got
it does not think
of tomorrow
does not speak of
regret of the past
it stays in its solitude
silent on the river
where the moon
nests.

The Best Part

when I'm sick and in bed I have to stay
when I stay home for 5 or 6 days
when I see my family away
or when I go on holidays

the best part
is that nobody
ever misses me
