He thought the unthinkable
He saw the unseeable
He spoke the unspeakable
His face was illusion
And his name was Lies.
I hear the refrigerator door
closing at midnight
The sound of another
For the Grook contest
It doesn't make sense
that older folk should drive so slow.
When the traffic light turns green
that means you should GO!
Yet at the same time
the younger fella likes to rev his engine hardcore,
not knowing he's still just a sprout,
still unaware of what life's all about.
The old man has only so much time left on this earth,
you'd think he'd want to show the bull who's boss.
While "big and cool" just wants to impress the ladies,
throwing everything he owns into the wind
not even caring what it costs.
The always amazing and unassuming
flight from confrontation fright
The rude avoidance of acquaintance
with life’s challenges with dances
How can these issues of man survive,
and still claims the balls?
The first small steps
Upon the stones of freedom
Taste sharp and chalky:
Like medicine, undissolved.
Wake up each morning with a grook,
A verse of how your day should look.
And when it ends write in a book,
The path you planned vs that you took.
I think there's a hole
or a leak in my head,
all the words have spilled out
and left parts of me dead.
I can no longer muster
an original thought,
the words that I find there
are weak and distraught.
The well has run dry,
to coin a phrase,
but that, too, is trite
and seen better days.
Seen better days?
I've done it again.
You could fit my creativity
on the head of a pin.
Another trite phrase!
I've truly run dry
and now I'll be gone
in the blink of an eye.
Concept of two people living together
For more than a good number of years
Without having spoken a cross word
It suggests a lack of spirit simply
That got to be admired in fish only.
