Simplistic, Black & White But True; The Elixir

One idea can lead almost directly to another – although a day apart, as in this case:

Sometimes the deepest questions elicit the easiest truths. Because it is rather sillily written this ‘truth’ below is slated to go into a collection called “A Sense Of the Ridiculous #II, A Sense Of The Ridiculous #I already published. (see Amazon or Barnes & Noble, I think )…and more, I’m sure.

Simplistic, Black & White But True🤪

Teddy Roosevelt, the President,
Said, “Where you are, with what you have, do what you can”.
Do it, do, do, do”, said
The President!

And I concur with Teddy’s view
For reader, do
You have a better, more complete

Complex issues
May have layers,
Many sayers,
But sometimes there are no clearer
Answers than one thin as tissues.

The Elixir

If there ever was a magic potion
Inbuilt in an earthly notion,
One to change the habits old
Into a new and lifelong gold;
Outside all tricks,
The negatively nix;
A lotion of refreshment
Portioned out, the perfect servant,
Ocean of vitality and vibrancy
And most of all, not fancy,

It is doing what you can
With what you have
Wherever you may find yourself,
Tools always in your hand
Or foot, or leg or mind,
Its wangling angling,
Its instinct, intuition, reasoning.

Right there in existence
And your presence
Is the feature and the fixture:
The elixir.

Elixir; (also elixir of life) a preparation supposedly able to prolong life indefinitely:
