Reincarnation





I had planned on a meme-free month (to attack the dust under the beds!) but I couldn't resist an Acrostic! Who needs crossword puzzles?

ACROSTIC ONLY
suggests this word.

REINCARNATION

Round and round humanity marches
Emerging from eternal arches
In an incessant catch-up game,
Never escaping praise or blame
Can it be you've been courageous?
Are your sins just too outrageous?
Rated! That's how you will be!
Neatly labeled A.B.C.
And can you bear to face the fact
That this wont be the final act?
It may be you'll come back a bug
Or a slippery slimy slug!
Next time I do this earthly tour
I'll watch my Ps and Qs for sure!
*

Aha! You couldn't stay away. I knew I should have started a betting pool on when you'd crack! ;)

Once again, your rhymes are making me laugh. Next time, I'm coming back as a Beverly Hills lapdog.

I read this several times, but when I came back I realize I had not commented. This is so much fun to read ... and I will be back to read it again.

Hi Brenda,

this is one great acro work! two birds in one bullet!

it's frightening to get reincarnated esp if one becomes a slimy slug!

good morning to you!

:)

Amity Me said...

nice post Brenda, two birds in one bullet, an acro for AO and for OSI...

should there is really reincarnation, i wouldn't want to be a slimy slug!

good day Brenda!

The poem's outcome was worth postponing the dust clearance under the bed..!!

mmm... you are talking about Karma... the good news is... as you're born a human being in this birth... its obvious you've got an excellent grade in previous birth :)))) Congrats.
