Good or Gone

I’ve enjoyed writing for many years. I'm dedicating more time to the craft in my retirement days.

good-or-gone

Good or Gone

If you think to yourself:

Make money, make money I will!

Toss together some words

That are no more than swill

You have erred

You’re confused

You arrived at a tree

Where your bark

Will get no bite

Do you see?

If you think to yourself:

Make money, make money I shall!

Recycle cute phrases

You got from Google, old pal

You’ve misjudged

You’re mistaken

You arrived at a fork

Where your choice

Is like Yogi’s

But don’t take it

Definition of dosh

British, informal

: money

— “Dosh.” Merriam-Webster.com Dictionary, Merriam-Webster, https://www.merriam-webster.com/dictionary/

If you think to yourself:

Make money, make money by gosh!

I’ll tell my life story

Just think of the dosh!

Please rethink

Reconsider

I beg of you please

Hook a louie

Do a U-ie

For me

For us

And indeed…

For youie

I’m asking

For a friend

My friend

Or my acquaintance

If you’d rather

As a substitute

Consider realistically

Your efforts

Not super

But supernumerary

Direct yourself

To point ‘B’

Is that point ‘B’ you just said?

Point ‘B’ did you say?

It seems to me, mon ami

That that’s the wrong way!

Shouldn’t instead

I go looking

For starting point ‘A’?

Oh, hey

No way, I say

Not starting point ‘A’

That’s the wrong way

Steinway

Head instead

On over

To point ‘B’

And then ‘E’

And then Gee

OH

EN

E

Phonetically

You see

It’s a message

From me

BE GONE

Or be good

Get good

The former

Or the latter

Is fine

For what I have in mind

‘Cuz it’s the writing

The lettering

The letters

The prose

The script

The words to the page

The things that get writ

And wrote

And written

And said

Expressed

Penned

Authored

Proffered

Those all

They must be

Gee double oh

Gee double oh dee

Do you see?

GOOD

Let that be

The case

Else

Please

Bee

E

Gee

Oh

En

E
