“CONSIDER THIS?” a poem May 30, 2019 (The ORIGINAL Memorial Day!) (Thursday, as we prepare for karaoke at Ole Crystal Bar this evening . . . )

Is there YET! any reason to think anything’s gettin’ better?

Or-a-reason-to-think-something’s-worse? Why-not-just-LET-“HER,”

Rest! You-know! HER! = “The-notion-that-something’s-BAD-&-must-be-changed,”

Especially when we’re all so confoundedly maladjusted – and happily deranged,

AND SO UNINFORMED! Do we really have ANY “real information?”

Haven’t we just been “fed” “tradition,” the kind offered by this
“POORLY-CONCEIVED? ‘WEIGH’-STATION?”

Consider-this: If nothing’s getting better (?), then nothing’s getting worse,
And the next vehicle you ride in – is BOTH a-luxury-car-AND-a-hearse,
And we’re “tooling” along, waiting for our next meal sleep and f – – – !

Come-on, rest here, here beside me – and-I’ll-give-you-a-little-tuck!
I’ll tuck you into bed, and I’ll-assure-you that ALL-IS-FINE,
And that-whatever you-reach-for is: “MINE! MINE! MINE!”

The carnival is “blazin’;” the girls are really pretty;
The boys-are-all “smart and accomplished,” and I think it is a pity,
That we “put so much stock” in the “evidence?” we see,
When-our-conclusions-are-probably-based – mostly-on-stu-pid-i-ty!

And, YES! This-poem-is-“stupid” too and has no rhyme-or-reason, right?
So, why-are-reading-IT – and-why’re-you-so-upset-[with-it]?
Perhaps, there’s-a-bit-of-“light!?” 🙂 – No! It just couldn’t be!
