Fame

Poem By J.B. LeBuert

Is fame now the name of the game?
Are our parents the ones to blame?
Is that what we really desire?
Is that what sets our bellies on fire?

Should we set aside all our other goals?
Are the most important things Super Bowls?
Is the most important goal to be famous?
Is money the only thing that will tame us?

Are our children on the right path?
Should we discard science and math?
Should we abandon giving for greed?
Is it better to eat than to feed?

Is the search for wealth the best thing?
Is it better to take than to bring?
Is the love of money a virtue?
Will the rush for fame hurt you?

Should we stop learning now?
Should we stop asking how?
Is television the answer?
Could it be worse than Cancer?

Have we all forgotten how to see?
Are we blind to everything but ME?
Should we serve ourselves first?
Is this generation cursed?

Maybe we should temper fame with learning?
Maybe we should forego begging for earning?
I think maybe fame could be a curse?
I think the love of money may even be worse?

(02) Shewolf Is Back

Shewolf did prefer to stalk in the twilight hour;
She'd drag some back to the lair, for all to devour,
It was matter of choice, not an obsession.
I viewed with my camera, that's my confession.

(07) The Pack Of Four Is No More

They had begun the trip back to their place of birth.
Killing as they went without caring their food's worth.
They moved with stealth and grace, like a well-oiled machine.
Their lack of fear would cause the demise of one teen.

(19) The Creator

The posse of twenty was still gone on the hunt.
The sixteen wolves were fleeing from the hunter's front.
The trackers and hunters had supplies that would last.
It was raining hard, and the trail was fading fast.

(01) Serious Stuff

Dawn had approached and it slinked and slithered about.
It smelled the strong odors with its pointed short snout.
It knew how to hunt, creeping down and staying low,
The saliva began to secrete and to flow.

(03) The Shewolf Pups

Before the floods came, Shewolf abandoned her brood.
She did it to survive, this showed She was quite shrewd.
They had learned what they needed; now they were alone.
They stayed put when She left, they were now on their own.

(04) The Search Begins

The rain came in torrents as the wet monsoon raged.
The Shewolf pups headed south, that’s what they had gauged;
Drenched to the bone, with a raging river to ford;
They now wanted to cross, without losing their hoard.
