Day 30: Lessons learned/ lessons never learned poem

Move Forward
by Laurie Kolp

What will it finally take
to dethrone you, Drama Queen?
Can’t you see insanity
washes through your every scene?

Even Triton’s conch shell horn
fails to calm the choppy sea,
your melodramatic mime
waving nonsense blatantly.

When will you ever learn
life’s lessons don’t come free;
that no matter how you act,
it goes down in history.

A trident aims to poke you
three times and it’s a charm,
so let the tide refresh you
and move forward without harm.
