falling for
the CARROT and the stick WORLD

Carrots are used for many purposes.

Some folks may cover their mouths, aghast.
Others think about a glass of fresh squeezed juice.
Me?

I’m talking about the donkey carrot, 
the greyhound rabbit, 
and the human habit.

What habit?

of war and peace and love and hate
of you and me and them and we
of want, desire and a need to rate

who is weak and who is strong
Mind decides
who is right and who is wrong.

Mind can go on and on and on
until we wake and find the self
in a loopy looped talkathon.

Just give it a carrot to chase
Mind will take off running
I know! I have been in that race.
