Saturday Challenge Poem

Close the door;
you're letting the air conditioning out

Close the door, you're letting the air conditioning out
I need someone to talk to. With if you see fit so to do
I worry about things that I can't change
Maybe this happens with you as well.  Well? 
Not like the price of crude oil from Russia 
But more like escalation all around
Or the climate changing  melt the icebergs
Forest fires, drought, flooding right and left  
I could go on but what is to be gained 
Time will tell and I won't be here to know
It's cooled in here again, thanks for coming
Should I worry, what say you about this?

. - I'm linked with for the Weekend Mini-Challenge in The Imaginary Garden with Real Toads,  I wrote this one especially for today's posting. It is supposed to be "mini", mine is not exactly that having 163 words.

 . - Magaly wants us to resurrect a few word from a previous work and write again with them in a new poem.  I picked these beginning two lines for my beginning two here:
"Close the door, you're letting the air conditioning out
I need someone to talk to. With if you see fit so to do"

I would say that there is much to worry about. However, we can't close the door... at least, we shouldn't. How will we see what's coming, how to fix it, if we don't look?

You have every right to worry, it's human nature, and you are a parent. However. Don't close the door. Keep looking, for faith's a tiny one. Keep your eyes peeled

Much love...

There's so much to worry about in the world, Jim,
just focus on keeping the air-conditioning in.

I think these are questions which trouble all of us from time to time.

I think we can all relate to these worries Jim, but I hope you open the door once in a while. :-) Thought provoking and honest I love that!

There is plenty to worry about but so many other things to talk about. I'm glad you want to talk.

I smiled at your comment after the poem, Jim, that your muse was feeling down. I think mine is scared witless by the state of the word, for she has been silent this summer. Gob-smacked. I enjoyed the conversational tone of your poem very much.

There is so much to worry about these days, but worry doesn't change it.
