Take A Trip

Professor, therapist, author and poet.






Sing yourself a cheerful tune
and boost life to the hilt
Take a trip around the moon but not around the guilt

Profit from a windfall boon
and boost life to the gain
Take a trip around the moon but not around the pain

Get out from the safe cocoon
and boost life to the cheer
Take a trip around the moon but not around the fear

Feign birth by a silver-spoon
and boost life to the toss
Take a trip around the moon but not around the loss

Launch a red hot-air balloon
and boost life to the sky
Take a trip around the moon but not around the lie

Seek romance able to swoon
and boost life to the mend
Take a trip around the moon but not around the bend
