The Right Thing
Poems by Halsey

The Right Thing   If it’s the right thing to do Then do not hesitate Instead, you should follow through Before it is too late.    Lest you have time to think Which can introduce doubt So that intention starts to shrink Leading to a way out.    Assuming it’s the kind of gesture That will make the world better  Then do not be deterred It may be now or never!    By: G. Halsey Wickser ..read more

Time
Poems by Halsey

Time   Sometimes we just want to make it stop But with that comes a built-in doubt Knowing full well that it will not Since that’s not the way time is laid out.    Because time is part and parcel of life As long as we exist, it will continue It’s not possible to turn out its lights No matter what, that will always be true.       Like the earth we touch, time is here It’s with us as far as the eye can see A perpetual wheel in forward gear, Without it there would be no eternity!    By: G.

Sesquipedalian
Poems by Halsey

4d ago
Sesquipedalian   There are some who try to prove How erudite they are You can spot them when they use The long words they share.    Sesquipedalia vocabulary is their vice And part of their verbal demeanor While they shun words more concise That they’ve deemed to be too meager.    Sadly, they haven’t heard That getting to the point might benefit Following the advice of these words, That brevity is the soul of wit!   By: G. Halsey Wickser ©   Sesquipedalian: characterized by polysyllabic words, long winded.   ..read more

The Letter of The Law
Poems by Halsey

5d ago
The Letter of The Law   Those with robe and gavel Should be charged with abuse When dispensing justice deemed unequal Then offering no excuse.   Since they are given wide latitude Interpreting the letter of the law Which sadly can depend on the attitude Of who is wagging the dog.    Because in matters of the state There can be many bad actors Who will act on behalf of a favorite Or on order of their masters.   Especially when they don’t try to hide What’s so blatantly transparent, That “justice” has been selectively applied Against a political opponent.   By: G.

Remembering Tomorrow
Poems by Halsey

Remembering Tomorrow   It’s within our powers To reverse the flow Of time and its passing hours And look backwards from tomorrow.    To go to what hasn’t yet happened  But most definitely will, And make the fourth-dimension bend Using our predictive skill.    Yet were this to actually happen  Mightn’t it make tomorrow different? I guess that would all depend On our ability to alter the imminent!   By: G. Halsey Wickser ©     ..read more

Sixth Sense
Poems by Halsey

1w ago
Sixth Sense   Traditionally there is thought to be five But in reality, there’s a more vital sense  One that lies behind the eyes, Commonly referred to as knowingness.    So senior it is to them all That its absense would disable the rest, How else could we sense anything at all? To attempt it would be futile at best.    Were we to train ourselves to use Our sixth sense to its fullest   Once there we could literally lose The other five and know not the difference!    By: G.

Discipline

Discipline   Everybody has a craving, Some particularly bad, Beckoning us to give in Never stopping in its demand.    Such cravings can actually talk With a little voice deep from inside Please, one more time, take a walk With me and leave your cares behind.    There’s only one way to deal with this One that also comes from within A close ally of determination and grit, Is a thing called discipline!    By: G.

The Wheat From the Chaff
Poems by Halsey

1w ago
The Wheat From the Chaff   It requires differentiation  Lest one get the shaft Using powers of observation  To separate the wheat from the chaff.    To be able to call a spade a spade No matter who gets mad To not be afraid  To sort out the good from the bad.    So that once that ability is met  One will no longer be exposed, Aligning oneself instead  With allies as opposed to foes!   By: G.

Drugs
Poems by Halsey

Drugs   What’s the best way to ignore What’s going on inside? That’s what drugs are for Cuz they’ll take you for a ride.    They may lead to a temporary cure But they come with the price In the long run, rest assured, They’ll become an unwanted vice.    The reason for this is because It’s much easier to take a pill Than to dig deep for the underlying cause Of what’s making a person ill!   By: G.

Thing
Poems by Halsey

1w ago
Thing   It’s an all-purpose word So much it’s meaning might bring From the serious to the absurd Is a universal term, thing.    It’s a one-word wrecking ball Covering all bases clean From nothing to everything, all, And whatever is in between.    You can use it sparingly Or any way you might like Whichever way, most surely It would mean you’d be right!    By: G. Halsey Wickser ©   ..read more
