Poem - In A Rush

I’m in a rush

I’ll talk to you later

now is not a good time

can this wait to later

is this a priority right now

one of these lines

from a book of a million excuses

the dukers and dodgers

duke and dodge

focused on their own little lives

their greedy paws grabbing grabbing

slobbering and slavering

over material things mostly not theirs

they steal - they wheel - they deal

I’m in a rush

means I’ll talk to you in the next life

….quick run out

find a worm interpreter

this is their destiny in the next life

Karma is what you give - you get

Karma rules

Hey Drax the premise the narrator being in a rush is a great way to frame a poem!

But i don't know if karma can be taught. The minute you think you have mastered karma you're behind the ball. I'd go as far to say to believe you can teach people is bad karma, i'm more comfortable saying that people can learn from me than I am teaching them.

How do you know whats up if if you're always looking down?

Hey thanks Howhigh.. I was poking fun at the educational establishment since yes, I agree, karma cannot be taught... this line of yours is brilliant - "How do you know whats up if if you're always looking down"

Thanks Drax
