PEACOCK FEATHERS MAKE THE BEST FEATHER DUSTERS!” a poem a.k.a.: “Aren’t There Enough Things Around Here To Be Scared Of?” February 13, 2019 (Wednesday) KARAOKE NIGHT at The Railroad Blues? Alpine, Texas, U. S. A. “We may all turn into pumpkins around midnight!” The Mystic Poet!
FRIDAY, The 13th – comes again – this month: TODAY! Wed-nes-day!
Watch-to-handle-mirrors-carefully! and-not-to-wear-TOO-MUCH – gray!
Peacock Feathers? Oh, beware! If-you-bring-them-in-your-home,
Unless, of course, you’re-in-Northern-Regions, where-They’re-OK!-IF-you-say-“OHM!”
Black cats? Oh! NO-NO NO-NO! Unless-you-are-a-witch! 🙂 – or a warlock!
Yet-EVEN-Glenda, The-“Good”-Witch-of-The-North – can-sometimes be – (pause) [Contrary!]
Get-an-astrological reading – or – throw the runes, at least one time each year,
And NEVER – EVER walk backwards – unless-it’s getting near,
To-the-end-of-The-Month! Oh, &-don’t-forget: THE-LORD’S-PRAYER, said each day!
To keep “all of your spiritual bases covered!” It is THE SAFEST WAY!
It’s funny though! The-“smartest”-people-I-know! Have got these things they do –
OR DON’T – or-want-you-to-know: THE-THINGS-THAT-ARE-GOOD-4-U!
But, just remember, for each belief! There’s one that counters it too;
Who’s to say WHAT’S GOOD OR BAD – or how to apply the screw!
And-when you BELIEVE – it’s TIME – to impose your be-lief set –
On other people! You should know, I-BEEN-THERE! and-you can bet,
I’ve-been-twisted – turned! and thrown – upon-my-superstitious-fanny,
Trying to appease “the wise,” [AND SPIRITUAL!!!] who want to be my nanny! (pause)
NANNYs and MAMMYs have got their beliefs, that-they-learned while growing up,
To KEEP-‘EM’-SAFE and all secure – from-“evil-eye”-and-“poisoned-cup!”
And you can adopt whatever you wish – TO FILL-UP YOUR LIFE WITH FEAR,
Based on the super-sti-tions – That others hold so dear,
Or – you can tell EVERYONE, who-thinks-they-KNOW-of-what-you-should-beware,
That they need a [PEACOCK]-feather-“where-the-sun-don’t-shine!”
I THINK THAT’S ONLY FAIR! 🙂 – FEAR! Lord-y, but it IS widespread!
