You- CAN spend all your time on the phone and a-sleeping;
“A GOOD STATE!?” a poem August 26, 2019 (Monday)
That-MIGHT-seem like-a good id-e-a!]
But, I dunno! The body (and mind? and spirit?) might suffer! And other stuff might start to be-a,
Little down! (pause)
And then your life might go down-a-the-drain!
Is THAT now what you really want?
Can’t too much lounging – turn out to be quite the strain!?
You’d think that lounging – would always relax you,
So you can be peaceful & calm,
But without some balance, you might just BLOW! (pause)
Like an ATO-MIC BOMB!
And, then, who’s gonna piece you back together again,
To have peace? (pause)
For, “Lying-in-Pieces,” (pause)
But I “LOVE-YOU-TO-PIECES!” How can you say that?
I want to sleep lots be-on-the-phone and tap, tap!
I think it-is healthy, and it’s what I want to do!
I want to talk! and – s – – – – s – – – – s – – – -!
That’s what (s)he said; then (s)he went up to Heaven,
With all of The Saints! and her boyfriend Kevin!*
And they lounged-and-called-and-cooed FOREVER, ’til all cows did fly!
Things are lighter in Heaven! So, please don’t-you cry!
- – In Celtic or Gaelic, this name means: “gentle” or “attractive!”
