Freedom comes round


Freedom comes round

A wheel breaks free from a heavy axle
It forges on ahead
ThenΒ  turns to wobblin’

drunk with freedom
Soon it falls down dead

  1. Captain Beefheart – thank you now and thank you then.

    I’m not sure he was feigning; he was authentic if nothing else, yes?

    Lots of emotion around this. I’m grateful to be able to feel it, Where.

    • I think he was an authentic artist/showman but your comment challenges me.
      He didn’t seem to approach much with hat in hand to me.
      I will Hope he was humble πŸ™‚

      I felt like a wobbly tire last night.

  2. Hi Dude! πŸ™‚

    Yes, she’s a sweet person most of the time, but she went ape when she saw me put out the trash while wearing a bath robe because she could see bare shins!!! LoL!!!

    I guess she’ll have forgotten by now – she’s a sweet person most of the time, but her mind’s going and it’s heart breaking to see her mind fall apaprt…

    God Bless!


    • Oh my what a story!
      I thought that maybe I should not have picked on you but I am glad it led to this explanation.
      Now if we could just figure out what your dad was putting in the car…..? πŸ™‚
      I am sorry your friend’s mind is going .
      Thanks for stopping by and telling about that.

      • No worries – I’ve lived here 25 years now and I know most of the regular folks, so I kind of got adopted by them! πŸ™‚

        Sheila, for instance, makes me laugh: She’s as straight as a die and absolutely no nonesense, so she keeps an eye on me and makes sure I’m OK as we were both in the Tenants & Residents Association for three years.

        She is one person I wouldn’t want to mess with though! LoL!!!

        I saw my elderly friend with alzheimer’s in Middleton and she didn’t even recognise me which is par for the course I’m afraid…

        God Bless!


  3. Thank you, hero . . .weebles wobble but they don’t fall down. πŸ™‚ big help, eh?

  4. So sorry you were like the wobbly tire last night, Hero. Tuck your chin, bear down, keep your hand in the rope & don’t let go till you hear the 8-second whistle!

  5. Your poem makes me think of the dangers that can come from overemphasizing a person’s need to be free—free from all limits, rules, authority, and structure. Especially in our country, freedom is so highly prized. And it should be. Freedom is a gift from God. But freedom should not become our god! I fear in some people’s haste to be free, they don’t realize that the very things they wish to be free from are good, God-given gifts in themselves.

    Thanks for sharing your poetry.


    • Thanks for stopping by.
      I was really thinking of a wheel coming free and looking for rhyming words Haha.
      I thought about what you have expressed here after I wrote it though.
      My pastor says we are free to do what we ought. πŸ™‚

  6. Simple, yet powerful, and analogous to what can happen to us in life.

  7. Better to die free than a slave, I guess.
