The Land of Nod Off and Forget

Please take off your shoes, you've entered into The land of Nod Off And Forget Where people try to get something done But haven't done it yet They forget why it is they're here And nod off in between They can't remember much of life Because they sleep through the whole thing They made for themselves a ruler But nodded off during the vote Forgetting who it was they chose When it was they all awoke So they wander around aimlessly Not having figured it out quite yet I'm not sure they ever will In the land of Nod Off And Forget

Wow - I see a wonderful poem about procrastination and aimlessness... and the choice to go or not to go to that land... or go elsewhere with a checklist of ambitions. Love your poem, Mike. What a lovely perspective you have.

True Mike, we are all awake during election year and then fall back asleep afterwards it seems!:)
