Magical Moments by Randy Wang

The Powers That Be

He gets up at five
Turns the coffee pot on
Another day at the factory
And it's going to be long

He stares at the wall
Where a calendar hangs
And thinks "Who needs that?
Every day's just the same."

He remembers a river
Where he used to catch fish
Once he caught a ten pounder
And fulfilled a deep wish

He remembers the picture
His friend had to take
They'd been out all evening
He was barely awake!

Just one more cup of coffee
And a paper to read
Then it's off to the factory
And the powers that be

Karen Shaw Matteson

Like the star,
That shines afar,
Without haste
And without rest,
Let each man wheel
with steady sway
Round the task that
rules the day
And do his best.

~~Wolfgang Van Goethe
