BLOODY GENIUS ๐Ÿ‘ป

When the trauma of the day – AND YOUR INCOMPETENCE – have really “set in,”
And intrigue and frustration (pause) knock you ‘cross your chin,

“WHEN TO TURN OUT THE [N]IGHTS!” a poem a.k.a.: “Breaking The Circuit!” May 13, 2019 (Monday)

You can scream and cry – or simply yell: “FOUL,”
Or – laugh! Turn-off-your-“devices,” – and “throw in the towel!”

For (you-know) NO MATTER WHAT YOU DO, YOU’LL-STILL “LOSE,”
And, if you’re not much interested in – drinking a lot of booze,
Just LAY YOUR TINY HEAD DOWN – on a pillow! AND SNOOZE!
Honey! (pause) You’ve-ALREADY (pause) “paid all your dues!”

Sleep with the knowledge, that “THE COMPETENT & GIFTED,”
Are TWO OUNCES shy – of-being totally-“shifted,”
From a-real-high-I.Q. – to-the-stretch-of-a-rubber-band!
2 ounces drained – from anyone’s Thyroid Gland,
Will-put-them-in-THEIR-PLACE, in-a-rocking-chair,
And, all day, at the wall – THEY CAN BLANKLY STARE,
Not remembering at all – how wise and competent they WERE!
You’ll barely hear the sound – of their brain stem going “purr!”

PURR-FECTION! and SMARTNESS! and CAPABILITY – are-all-nouns,
And, in humility, we’d better recognize: “We’re ALL a bunch o’ clowns!”
Clowns! in-Outer-Space, spinning around,
Thinking that OUR COMPETENCE – is something we have found!

BUT! We’re-only EVER REALLY “relatively-SMART,’
&-anyone-around-here-we-might-compare-ourselves-to-is: “a-pretty-weak-piece-of-art!”
SO, YOU MIGHT WANNA BE A LITTLE HUMBLE – and delicate with your friends,
And, IF you’ve acted pompously to others, you MIGHT wanna make amends!
