Did that parenting course
yet kids still rule by force!
Feel so hungry you cook up a big meal
eat so much too full you feel!

So cold you sit in the sun
then too hot, its no longer fun!
Finally get that ‘cool’ car
then next model is better by far!

Keen on that hunk at the gym
opens his mouth and you’re over him!
Get so tired of standing on your feet
you search ardently for the next seat!

Gone to the party of the year
so many stoned you leave with your beer!
Yearned for the outfit that model wears
each time you wear it everyone stares?

Longed to surf at the beach
get there and tide is out of reach!
Over straight hair so you get a perm
then wash it ten times coz curls are too firm!

When young we are often keen to drink
Now older with no time to think!
Finally painted your room red
can’t sleep now when you go to bed!

Saved each cent for that dream holiday
then got a huge dentist bill to pay!
Happiness and misery are very temporary
Know that all pain and pleasure are transient by nature!

29.4.2006, another oldie with same title as the prompt!

Daily Prompt:  Temporary


  1. Cook up a big meal, oh yes 😀😀😀 vegetarian right? 😉
    Keen on the hunk thing is so true. Everytime I think someone is good-looking, they show their true Colors too soon 😂😂 that’s good right 🤔
    I bought a hair straightener but never used it. I had curly hair and now that I have chopped it off, I hardly use a comb, forget straightener. 😂

          1. Plants have brains too. May be not brain brain, but they can sense things in their surroundings. Scientists have conducted experiments to prove it. Let me find the link and mail it to you. 🙂 It’s a very interesting study.


  2. It’s an oldie, but a goldie…
    I guess the only thing that is permanent is matter – (and energy, but apparently that’s the same thing – I just checked on Google) always there, but ever changing… oh, and space…
