“THE EXORCIST, RE-VISITED!” a poem a.k.a.: “No Rest For Those Without Rest In Their Degree Plan!” September 12, 2018 – Wednesday. Poetry tonight at The Holland Hotel at 6:30 P. M. AND Karaoke tonight at The Railroad Blues at about 10:00 P. M. Good luck!! 🙂
“There-are-two-options! FLAT-OUT! and SLEEPING-LIKE-THE-DEAD!”
SHE said, laying there – a-spinning her pretty, green head!!
“And YOU CAN NOT DISAGREE, WITH MY CONCLUSIONS, YOU SEE;
I KNOW TRUTH – and – It’s WHATEVER I’VE SAID!!”
“AND LIFE! IS O N L Y FOR PROGRESS & SHOWING,
HOW MUCH YOU CAN DO, EVER KNOWING;
YOU M U S T BE GREATLY CONCERNED & I’m SURE you’ll get burned,
ETERNAL-FLAMES – MUST BE KEPT, EVER GROWING!”
Father-Karras would NOT disagree,
But SUGGESTED a more moderate degree,
Of useful, kind living – some taking – some giving,
He said: “Regan, listen to me:
SOMETIMES! FLAT-OUT-IS (V E R Y) DESIRABLE,
IN SOME-INSTANCES, GREATLY ADMIRABLE,
But – WHEN-YOU-OVERDO, ALL THE TIME, YOU MIGHT RUE,
YOUR SWEET LIFE! With The Devil you’re conspire-able!?”
BUT – Regan was so darn possessed,
She heard NOT what Father Karras professed,
So! It-WAS-as-we-feared! Her fast head disappeared!*
AND N O W REGAN? SHE R E A L L Y CAN REST!! 🙂 – Whew!
- When things get going too fast for too long, molecular structures can sometimes … just … disintegrate! Ain’t that nice! “Yea, and nobody’s listening to me here either!!” The Mystic Poet. “THE POINT IS: NOBODY READS THIS FAR because they just heard their cell phone buzzing and HAD TO pick it up!” The Mystic Poet “We are NOT addicted! WE A R E ADDICTION!” 🙂 – The Mystic Poet.
