1. Married for 40 Years
couple had been married for 40 years. They had both celebrated their 60th
birthdays recently. During the celebration, a fairy appeared and said that
because they had been such a loving couple all these years, would
give them one wish each.
As a faithful, loving spouse, the wife wanted a romantic vacation
together, so she wished for them to travel around the world. The fairy
waved her wand and poof!
The wife had the tickets in her hand.
Next, it was the husband’s turn, and the fairy assured him he could
have any wish he wanted - all he needed to do was ask for his heart’s desire.
He paused for a moment, and then, he said, “Well, honestly, I’d like to
have a woman 30 years younger than me.” The fairy picked up her wand and
poof! He was 90!
2. Traveling on the Train
Three engineers and three IRS agents are traveling by train to a conference.
At the station, the three IRS
agents each buy tickets and watch as the three engineers buy only a
single ticket. "How are three people going to travel on only one ticket?”
asks an agent. “Watch and you’ll see,” answers an engineer. They all board
the train. The IRS agents take their respective seats, but all three engineers
cram into a restroom and close the door behind them.
Shortly after the train departed, the conductor comes around collecting
tickets. He knocks on the restroom door and says, “Ticket, please.” The
door opens just a crack and a single arm emerges with a ticket in hand.
The conductor takes it and moves on. The agents saw this and agreed it
was quite a clever idea. So after the conference, they decide to copy the
engineers on the return trip and save some money. When they get to the
station, they buy a single ticket for the return trip. To their astonishment,
the engineers do not buy a ticket at all. ”How are you going to travel
without a ticket?”, says one perplexed IRS agent. ”Watch and you will see”,
answers an engineer. When they board the train, the three agents cram into
a restroom and the three engineers cram into another one nearby.
The train departs. Shortly afterward, one of the engineers leaves
his restroom and walks over to the restroom where the IRS agents are hiding.
He knocks on the door and says, “Ticket, please.”

The Master of Infinity
- Sky –
The Master of all infinity
The symbol of all eternity
The mighty huge eternal sky
Looking down on everybody on the sly.
As if we are low pieces of clay
With whom he does merrily play
He plays with the dice of weather
And controls us like a feather.
We are helplessly suppressed by him
But we have at last conquered him
We have captured him but not his fury
He always behaves like an angry jury.
When we return home depressed
All our feelings are suppressed
And then we curse this master of death
And our anger slowly drowns in his depth.
But when I look up at the sky
Being so helpless I wish I'd die
This deep blue sky with its purple streak
Like a mother of thought
Gives me freedom of speech.
This poem seems to me a bore
I do not want to write any more.
