How Here has changed

Here,

Like the “buck stops here“,

Does not mean the same anymore.

Oh, how the world has changed!

And some will make us believe,

With that,

Has changed the English language.

Now Here does not mean here,

But means everywhere except Here.

And in the process

If a few bucks changes hands,

Sorry, I mean pockets,

More power to those conversant

In the art of the deal,

Unless you do not know.

Or as someone would say,

That’s the story of life, folks.

Now where was I?

Not here I suppose.

Monday Haikus : Don’t Pass The Buck

Today here and now
Tomorrow is far away
Onus is on you

*****
Being good human
Squander not inheritance
Malign not the world

*******
Why do pass the buck
Eyed responsibility
Unite, not divide

*****
Make it great again
By deed, not smoke and mirrors
Talk is cheap, work not

*******
Enjoy happiness
In responsibility
Burden it is not
