Seeking Yesterday

Nine little elves … sitting on a shelf
Eight jumped off … left  was self
Empathy … where can they be
What’s the matter …why’d they flee
Questions … answers …never jive
Crossed tangles …never survive
Seeking yesterday …headed for tomorrow
Needing … to fill … a hollow …sorrow.

Rubbing Off The Old

So funny…rubbing off the old
Let it be gone, you say
It’s ugly with wrinkles
It wasn’t there yesterday!

As you wash and dry your hands
You wonder what to do
To take away the old look
And make it…like new.

What more could you  do
I haven’t a clue
You use enough  lotion
To fill an ocean.
