What I Learn from Suzie

When you are caught

Swimming in a lake

Between two volcanoes

And you think you see

A dead fish

Remember

It’s just a lily pad

 

Those volcanoes

Will erupt someday

But you probably won’t

Be around to see them

And if you are

Chances are

You won’t be

In the path of the lava

And the lily pad is

Just that

And that’s how it looks

To see a glass

Half full
