You Never Know The Clout You Have

       You Never Know The Clout You Have

 

You never know the clout you have,

Clout being a blow or target –

Most of all effect or power

You exert by being you.

 

Take care! Be careful, scared! Be wary!

Everything you say, you do –

Each word, each vow, an influence.

In circumstance you radiate an ambience

You pray will be benevolent.

 

You, you

In all you do;

And you have impact.

Make a pact with mental you

To be a kind and, gentle you,

Giving out rewarding vibes,

Enriching, beneficial, fruitful.

You, yourself a scribe imbibing

Influences from abroad,

From world untoward – in discord!

 

Take some in and turn them ‘round.

You abound in power.

You can be man* of the hour

Just by being who you are.

You can be the lucky star

Of every person you encounter.

So remember!

You ne’er know the clout you have

To save what ever may occur.

 

* of course woman too!

One day I’ll send all my coffee poems to the coffee companies.  I’m probably their best advocate.  My Coffee Book #1 is already out.  This belongs to Coffee Book #2!

Caffeine Magic

 

Real writers write

Once they’re had their coffee –

Preferably

On a tray

In bed before they start the day.

Caffeine!

Adrenaline!

Magic.

On his deathbed

Leary,

Asked for LSD.

On mine

I’ll ask for

Caffeine.
