mayan gregory

there is a mismatch between the Mayan
the Gregorian
current calendars…

earlier on, life was lunatic
lunar based
now it’s pragmatic
that is scientific
Equator oriented

hence you all are welcome
for breakfast at Tiffany’s
at 8.30 am sharp
22nd December

Style / type: 
Free verse
Review Request (Intensity): 
I want the raw truth, feel free to knock me on my back
Editing stage: 


love it

and I’d be there if it wasn‘t so far to fly or swim

but a suggestion
I’d drop the lines
‘hope you know where it is’
‘Google it’
‘come with a free and open mind’
‘late comers will have to pay...’

making the finish
‘hence you all are welcome
for breakfast at Tiffany’s
at 8.30 am sharp
22nd December …..’

just me :)

love judy

'Each for the joy of the working, and each, in his separate star,
shall draw the Thing as he sees It, for the God of Things as They are.'
(Rudyard Kipling)

just me :)

Loved enters... none came for breakfast

there was no GMT in Mayan era or was there
a MMT ??
some where have a happy day
22nd arrives
as 21st passes away

oh! await
I hear someone say
the ides of March hath come
not passed yet
so hold on to your breath
till you prove Mayans right
as only you shall pass away...
