Ode to Plumber Joe

Hey Joe,
where ya goin with that
wrench in your hand?
The nation beats a path
to your white-panel van.
You're a star, bro:
Your opinion's the key--
but not to me.
I've got my own problems, Joe--
only one of 'em is a leaky faucet (now there's something you can help me with).
Otherwise I care not how much you're taxed,
or what you think about banks, since you've asked.
Hey, Joe:
You're in the toilet trade--you've got it made.
You show up with a bill before the work's even played
and you shake your head and say,
"Oh this is gonna take more than a day..."
Feeling a pinch? Your income's a lead-pipe cinch.
You'll be alright, Joe.
It's the rest of us I worry about.

October Surprise

Open your eyes;
There will be no October surprise.
The real bombshell
is in your mind--
you need to go ahead and
explode it.
Come November
all will not be
revealed, nor healed, nor
Turned Upside Down
so that you no longer know
what’s real.
Life will go on as before:
entirely as you make it.

day trade-off

The investor’s new lament:
“’Bye, low,” he’ll sigh.
The old rules
no longer apply.

daydrizzle believer

The grim gray rain
has its autumn upside:
You stop and think why
are you safe and dry--
if you so happen to be.

Sunshine’s overrated--
as a destination,
a mood-enhancer--
that you forget the wet
comfort of insulation.

Keep inside, then,
and let your day
dreams warm you.
