“FIRST COURSE OF ACTION.” a poem Sept. 19, 2019 [Thor’s]
Some Malaise? Feeling “Down?”
You got A TOUCH of The Unlucky Frown?
First Course of Action:
DON’T FRET. (pause)
And going to The Doc’s may not be the [very] best bet;
Of COURSE, you CAN:
Go to a confidante, a psycho – ologist, or JIM BEAM (?)
WHY NOT HAVE A CHANGE OF PLAN;
It’s NOT obvious, for I think most people like to “join The Team,”
Many simply REACH! Reach FOR some FOOD,
SOME PILLS or, youKnow, they will simply brood,
Over current events OrGoTakeAnap;
Complaining: “I feel like death warmed over; I feel like crap.”
So, you can go for a ride in the car or Fly To The Moon,
Or say: “I’m gonna exercise,” “Start a diet.” or “Act like a bloody buffoon.”
FIRST COURSE OF ACTION? The best here maybe? It is:
“DRINK A GLASS OF WATER OR MAYBE 2, PERHAPS, WITH A LITTLE FIZZ.”
Just a little liquid. OFTEN It’s just de-hy-dration;
That’s why The Pill Doc offers a glass or two with the medication.
COULD BE The meds aren’t really effective; Just POISON; it’s The Water that’s actually CORRECTIVE. AND:
Here’s a stra-te-gy: Have a couple bottles or glasses (of water) laying ’round The House.
It’s OK if they are just left there; just have them covered, so the mouse,
Doesn’t deposit dirt and stuff in them.
Moral: FEELING DOWN?
Put DOWN some water.
