“YESTERDAY’S NEWS!” a poem. Thor’s Day – July 12, 2018

NO ONE LIVES; NO ONE DIES;

IT’S ALL A DREAM, filled with lies!

Lies about (pause) LIFE and DEATH,

And-Better-and-Worse, and Stevie & Beth,

Boys and girls; cats and dogs,

And dreaming here – JUST “SAWING LOGS!”

YOU CAN-NOT DREAM, INSIDE A DREAM,

Or-put-excess-fudge on your ice cream!

REALITY! IT’S NOTHING MORE,

THAN A SILLY DREAM – and – IT’S A BORE!

The ONLY reason we’re fighting-this-war,

And keeping Boredom behind The Door (?)

Is-because-we’re-engaged in STIMULATION,

Creating ever-new sensation:

Give and Take – QUID PRO QUO,

Property Rights! Don’t-cha-know!

WE LOVE CHAOS – AND ORDER TOO,

It gives us all some-thing more to do!

And – WITHOUT-”SOMETHING,” Re -a – li -ty, (pause)

Comes-into-”view!” IT’S NOTHING! See?

We’re the “gears,” that run the machine,

That doesn’t exist! Do you know what I mean?

So, there’s nothing to win – and nothing to lose,

And – YOU’LL FORGET THIS POEM – IT’S “YESTERDAY’S NEWS!” 🙂
