The Swing Of Fate Can Be Cruel Or Sweet: 5 Poems
Author: Colin Stewart
With a sense of entitlement you may bring
this god given right to do your thing
but the brevity of time can be a fling
when fates chooses to pull everyone's string!
Napoleon Bonaparte missed his fate.
He arrived at Waterloo a little too late
as Empress Josephine made him wait
until he finished all the vegetable on his plate!
When the mighty Beatles took the stage
hormones were certainly not the rage
and all of this mania was but a dream
on the day the girls didn't scream!
They never conform or do what they're told.
Your entire life is fragile and has been put on hold
so freedom of suggestion may seem bold
until your cat agrees to come in from the cold!
The four winds of history started to blow.
As to what direction one would never know
so they marched to the west instead of the east
and right into the belly of the nefarious beast!
