Make the Most out of Life Poem by Marylyn McIntyre

Surprise Surprise

make your do’s

match your says

pick up the goddamned garbage

“they” can’t always do it for you

life, live it

draw your head from the keg

move damnit

mark the globe

stroke a tree, a child, a leaf

look through your veil of tears

hazy though it may be

budge yourself, love yourself

find god in your glass of beer

count your cliche blessings

surprise, surprise…
