Can’t you see

Life’s easy

If you consider things

From another point of view?

As I read about POV, Shel Silverstein kept popping into my head.  The man had such a drive-by genius way of looking at things.

Point Of View

Thanksgiving dinner’s sad and thankless
Christmas dinner’s dark and blue
When you stop and try to see it
From the turkey’s point of view.
Sunday dinner isn’t sunny
Easter feasts are just bad luck
When you see it from the viewpoint
Of a chicken or a duck.
Oh how I once loved tuna salad
Pork and lobsters, lamb chops too
‘Til I stopped and looked at dinner
From the dinner’s point of view.
