Plus

The prompt was to write a “Plus” poem and I only barely had time to add to my list, busy day.

It's a Wonderful Life

It’s a Wonderful Life

Addition

I’ve always loved addition
one and one make two.
And when they have fruition
the two start to accrue.

A lot of small additions
if things work as they might
and in the right conditions
the future’s looking bright.

Eventually addition,
as time is wont to pass,
turns into an attrition
as kids grow up en masse.

And so, no more addition
For a little while at least,
Until pairing-up ambition
make the numbers soon increase.

I’ve always loved addition
one and one make two.
Continue that tradition,
And you’ve got a family zoo.
