We’re BESIDE OURSELVES; without a prayer🙃🙃

“I LIKE WATERY EGGS TOO!” a poem a.k.a.: “The Only HEARER Her-ere!” Monday: December 24, 2018

We’re just a bunch of baggage! Big-ol’-Christ-MESS-eds,
Out-of-our-minds! AND – “Off our heads!”
We’re BESIDE OURSELVES; without a prayer,
And, a lotta us – just wanna-GET OUTTA-HERE!
‘Cause things ain’t so good – and we need things changed,
And most folks I know – are DEMENTED – and-(pretty)-deranged!
And, especially at Christmas, people ‘re “dropping-by-the-score!”
AND I DON’T KNOW (pause) IF I CAN TAKE MUCH MORE,
Of GOVERNMENT CLOSURES – and TRAFFIC – and MENTAL ILLNESS,
And all those “holiday commercials(?)” about-the-need-for-pharmaceutical-pill-ness!
And, about all I can do – to keep my mind “OFF-OF-IT,”
Is: keep-the-TV-football-games-a-playin” or-else-I’ll-have-a-fit!
I-DIDN’T-GET-ALL-MY-(X-mas)-CARDS-OUT-or-good-enough-presents-to-boot!
I’m just in misery! I-need-some -hooch-up-my-snoot!

But, y-know: If-I-relax-a-moment-
N-go-in-the-bathroom-
N-look-
N-the-mirror,
And smile-&-say: “I LOVE YOU!”- even-IF- I’m-the-ONLY-HEARER,
I guess things are kinda OK – Yea, maybe not as bad as I thought,
And – I’ll just sit here – and-read – and-hope-I-don’t-die-on-The-Pot!*

* – like “they” say Elvis did(?) Gosh, I miss Elvis! Oh, My God – here I go again! I know – I’ll just dress up like Elvis – and go door-to-door, asking for X-mas treats – or something! Who says Halloween has to only come once a year!
