What is done with hello cannot be catalogued in a tiny poem
Hello taken like a jolt of caffeine, slurped down,
transformed to lightning, thunder following
Hello, the ultimate vitamin, goes in, inspires sprints, races to the finish
Hello doesn't stick like chocolate, it slides in, then works its magic
Now wind is blowing, doors creaking, rain pouring down
No one knows how hello affects the weather
Hello lands, then does a double flip, spectacular gymnastics tricks
Does hello have mass, substance?
A smallish particle igniting stars, opening the sky and closing it in a blink
Hello is never stored, just made into instant energy
Hello brings life where death lurked in cold eyes
Enough hello could make the insane come to life,
wake, smile, learn to dream again
Hello is a laser tool, inspiring fools to learn, children to scamper across the room,
poor men to work, rich to work harder
Hello cannot be wasted, but must be carefully aimed,
like a bullet that melts on receipt,
the sweetest weapon you will ever use
