Mind Scam

I think
Therefore I am
What a joke
Its really toast with no jam.
Save it for a rainy day
Do you know how many ive had
I dont want to come out and play
A penny for your thoughts
Yup, you nailed it
But thats all i bought
Give me liberty or give me death
Hmmm a coin toss
I wont hold my breath
No man is an island
Really?
Is it all inclusive man
A bird in hand is worth
Nah, im not even gonna go there

    Well played Carl! It's when we start deliberating on thoughts and sayings that we question their wisdom and relevance in regards to our own lives. Nice!
