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