Val enjoys writing his own style of what resembles poetry, just hoping to catch someone's heart on the same page.
I am very fond of pragmatic souls
those not beating around the bush
having always clear, practical goals
and free of straining, with a little push.
I can't understand those who know a lot
but talk is about all they can do so well
just mentioning abilities they haven't got
as if promoting a product they don't sell.
An obese nutritionist and a nervous shrink
I've seen them socially -- to my big surprise
unable to apply what they believe and think
a sad appearance for my ever curious eyes.
Could it actually be true
what cynical folks often say
that "those who teach can't do"
like miracle workers who only pray.
An impotent sexologist is coming to mind
two more years could make him a plumber
I know, I know -- words like that are not kind
but don't pick violin if you are cut for drummer.
People should face their many limitations
and practicality always puts them on a test
like, so many should forget literary creations
because it's simply not what they can do best.
