All Else Is Ephemera

Welcome to my world,
I said to a complete stranger.
I am like that
When I want to be
But, otherwise, I seldom talk

Thank you kindly
Said the stranger
And how are you today?
I said why?
What have you heard?

And what shall I do
With this big world
Of yours, he said
I said, be careful with it,
Treat it with respect

To which he said, how’s that?
I said, you heard me well enough
Don’t screw with the world
Just because of pique
And just because you can.

If you don’t count
Your blessings, man,
You don’t deserve my time
Because it’s precious and it going fast
Soon I won’t be around.

Take my advice I said to him
Do the best you can
And tell the people whom you know
Just put out a helping hand
And lift their fellow man.

All else is ephemera!
