A Good Idea

by Richard Haxton

A good idea is like tempered steel
Forged in the fire, its strength revealed
Like a samurai sword with layers beat so thin
It can keep its shape with every shock and bend

It’s gotta be lived as well as told
Gaining strength with every blow and fold

We are a good idea

A good idea is like a bristlecone pine
Able to stand the test of time
Rooted in rock through the wind and cold
Through the drought and heat it keeps its hold
Like a baby’s laugh, like a seasoned wine
Like a perfect blend of heat and mind
