P.s, Don't Hurry
Dear grown ups, don't you wish you were small
Dear listeners, keep an ear out for the call.
Dear children, you've got time. Don't hurry.
Dear growers, whatever you do
Dear teachers, look up from bent dictionaries
Dear learners, be your own sewn visionaries.
Dear waiters, I beg you, wait a little longer
Dear rushers, do as they did
Dear poets, use words you understand please
Dear dreamers, don't ever stop climbing tall trees.
Dear walkers, won't you slow, tie your shoestrings
Dear runners, just be careful
fix your heartstrings.
Dear mother, I've tried to do as you would
Dear father, Would I be yours, then, had I could?
Dear teenagers, don't play your music quite so loud
Dear rebellers, we'll still hear you,
not so loud.
Dear anarchists, thank you greatly for your turmoil
Dear lovers, thanks for unwinding hate's coil.
Dear arguers, it's your choice, but you'll grow tired.
Dear agree-ers, well, Love,
we all grow tired.
Dear typewriter, please find hope when things aren't permanent
Dear pencil, oh how fleeting your ornaments.
Dear thinkers, keep writing
Dear writers, keep thinking
Dear hope-ers, just know,
Dear parents, it's me again, and dear Rebellers,
Dear sixteen year olds, maybe someday,
you'll be both.
Dear children, listen closely,
and let's all give a cheer
Dear wanders, we've all got something
Dear sunshine, please forgive rainfall
Dear storm clouds, make amends with life's rag dolls.
Dear high school time wasters
drab office desk workers
lonely newspaper column writers
Dear wine tasters
Dear beer drinkers
big book on a rainy day readers
too fast bike pedallers
Dear slumber party hair braiders
Dear toy guns from window shooters
Without a cause notebook writers
Dear absentminded calendar scratchers
slutty time keepers
hungry politician speakers
Dear future grandchildren
Dear silent hearts,
bus riders train crashers
Dear God, if you're listening,
We've all written, but we're fizzling
And Dear breathers
altogether promise keepers
take your time
we're time's reapers.
