Silly Bus

Poem By Shirley Marie Jacobsen

There are many silly buses in this world
One whirls down the highway 70 miles an hour!
One directs you to your signs
One instructs you in your courses
literature, history, reading, rhyme.
These are important—metal on paper!
One you can trust—one is unpredictable
The ones you can trust are your instructions
Buy only if you follow them.
Read this, read that—test this, test that.
Hand in work on the fourth, add a lesson, a report!
'til you're riding along inside a "silly bus"
And can't get off!

Columns And Pillars

One must consider the pedestal
which raises to the sky
staunch and bold it stands tall.
One might ask the reason why? One must consider it a pillar

The Middle Class Woes

When the middle-class stretches and grows
someone knows! Even though the best decision
may rock the pillar, shake the beam
loose the temporary foundation
