Cognitive Check-Up (a poem)

Some things I think about way too much
Some things don’t think about near enough
When living in a world with so much stuff
Priorities easily get mixed up

Wise is the one who stays focused
On the things that matter most
When there’s so much to distract you
What can you control?

The mental load is heavy
Some things you’ve got to cut
The brain has been a dumping ground
Which fences should you shut?

Discern your energies
Preside well over time
Get clear on your values
Regulate your mind

The task is far from easy
The job is never through
But checking your cognition
Is something you should do!

Supply-Induced Demand (A Sonnet)

Supply-induced demand (is when a)
Product is at hand 
And some will choose to buy 
Just because there’s a supply

They keep an extra stash 
As a way to get your cash 
It’s not really a need
Just a craving you can feed

But I’m not falling for it 
I simply just ignore it 
I know the tactics well 
For the chosen ways to sell

So market your stuff with your best strategy 
Good chance that you’ll be getting nothing from me

The Borrower Is Slave (a poem)

“The borrower is slave to the lender.”

Cut the cards
Lose the loans
Ditch the debt 
Nix the notes

My car may be old
My stuff may be small
But here’s why I win:
THEY’RE PAID FOR IN FULL!

Full Court Press (A Poem)

Screenshot 2018-06-11 at 9.48.27 PM

“Innocent blood crieth from the ground.”
-Doctrine & Covenants 136:6

Full court press
Take them down
Run them clear right
Out of town

Cards in place
The time is right
We won’t back down,
Prepared to fight

Voices of victims
Rise from the dust
Their blood cries out
Demanding justice

Despite what they claim they are
No woman’s friend
A kingdom of lies always
Falls in the end

Only God redeems the past
But we’ll make sure that they won’t last


“The house of the wicked shall be destroyed.”
-Proverbs 14:11

Raise Your Prices (A Mini Poem)

If everyone agrees to buy
And no one says you charge too high
If nobody will tell you no
That means your prices are too low!

Be Not Deceived (A Sonnet)

Be Not Deceived.
-Galatians 6:7

Are they actually duped?
Or part of the scheme 
Thrown for a loop?
Or not what they seem

Part of the lies?
Or fell for the hoax
Snake in disguise?
Or tricked by the joke
..
Who has clean hands?
Which ones have blood
Who says what they mean?
Who’s wearing a hood

We want to believe their intentions are pure
For some that may be, but can never be sure
