Never say Never


I never want to miss

the now

nor second stroke of lightning

not boiling pots

not mindful thoughts

nor goals met quite untimely

If that were so

I’d rather go

to Never-lands more likely


I never want to challenge death

nor wait upon tomorrow

no ducking love

nor bridesmaid gloves

nor lending things to borrow

if that were state

I’d pack suitcase

and never know such sorrow


Yes, “never” word’s

a bitch, I’ve heard

a gauntlet said not traveled

since “never” prate

seduces fate

and Nature wins most gambles

in future then

be wary when

the never word is babbled.

prompt: never say never


idioms used–or–Where’s Waldo:

Now or never

Lightning never strikes twice

A watched pot never boils

never mind

Better late than never

Never-never land

Never say die

Tomorrow never comes

Tis better to have loved & lost than never to have loved at all

Always a bridesmaid, never a bride

Never a lender or borrow be
