We’re BESIDE OURSELVES; without a prayer🙃🙃

“I LIKE WATERY EGGS TOO!” a poem a.k.a.: “The Only HEARER Her-ere!” Monday: December 24, 2018

We’re just a bunch of baggage! Big-ol’-Christ-MESS-eds,
Out-of-our-minds! AND – “Off our heads!”
We’re BESIDE OURSELVES; without a prayer,
And, a lotta us – just wanna-GET OUTTA-HERE!
‘Cause things ain’t so good – and we need things changed,
And most folks I know – are DEMENTED – and-(pretty)-deranged!
And, especially at Christmas, people ‘re “dropping-by-the-score!”
AND I DON’T KNOW (pause) IF I CAN TAKE MUCH MORE,
Of GOVERNMENT CLOSURES – and TRAFFIC – and MENTAL ILLNESS,
And all those “holiday commercials(?)” about-the-need-for-pharmaceutical-pill-ness!
And, about all I can do – to keep my mind “OFF-OF-IT,”
Is: keep-the-TV-football-games-a-playin” or-else-I’ll-have-a-fit!
I-DIDN’T-GET-ALL-MY-(X-mas)-CARDS-OUT-or-good-enough-presents-to-boot!
I’m just in misery! I-need-some -hooch-up-my-snoot!

But, y-know: If-I-relax-a-moment-
N-go-in-the-bathroom-
N-look-
N-the-mirror,
And smile-&-say: “I LOVE YOU!”- even-IF- I’m-the-ONLY-HEARER,
I guess things are kinda OK – Yea, maybe not as bad as I thought,
And – I’ll just sit here – and-read – and-hope-I-don’t-die-on-The-Pot!*

* – like “they” say Elvis did(?) Gosh, I miss Elvis! Oh, My God – here I go again! I know – I’ll just dress up like Elvis – and go door-to-door, asking for X-mas treats – or something! Who says Halloween has to only come once a year!

Life is like a bunch of roses. Some sparkle like raindrops. Some fade when there's no sun. Some just fade away in time. Some dance in many colors. Some drop with hanging wings. Some make you fall in love. The beauty is in the eye of the beholder. Life you can be sure of, you will not get out ALIVE.(sorry about that)
