“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!” 🙂

Life is like a bunch of roses. Some sparkle like raindrops. Some fade when there's no sun. Some just fade away in time. Some dance in many colors. Some drop with hanging wings. Some make you fall in love. The beauty is in the eye of the beholder. Life you can be sure of, you will not get out ALIVE.(sorry about that)
