from Best poems and poets of 2001:
KAUAI "Hurry up and wait" the motto of the city
Standing at the gate, isn"t it a pity?
Whatever happened to Aloha?
To "what I have, you may have, Come share with me"
To time to be with puppies and growing,
To sing new songs and make new rhymes
Whatever happened to "more Leisure time"?
He"s standing at the gate, can we afford to be late?
He is the gate and when he"s gone
No knocking fists will sound
No would be lovers who never sang their songs
No would be poets who never wrote a line
Or made a dime
No bell will toll for those who come
So hurry up and make your own fate
"Give Peace a Chance"
Before it's too late!
