Is it Friday again already? Not having had a vacation in several years, I may never return to normal human work again! Then again, I haven’t been overly successful monetizing my brain, or my body for that matter, so perhaps maintaining the status quo for now would be appropriate.
I think the heat may finally be starting to get to me a tad. I WAS wonderfully prolific yesterday in the poetry realm but they are all rather peculiar. That said, I’m still somewhat fond of all of them in a quasi- damaged, not entirely health way.
I believe today’s release is a theme that’s been touched on before in a more serious context. Regardless, it’s one that I believe in strongly and is worthy of a revisit. Plus I really like some of the lines.
“Busted Eggshells”, May 31, 2018
Shattered ambitions can still be reborn
Put from mind the bitter outsider’s scorn
Fit the biggest pieces back together
Broken dreams are hardly gone forever
Scrape your fresh corpse from off the jagged rocks
First shoo off the gulls and that one cute fox
You may not recover all of the scraps
But the framework vision sure needs not lapse
That graceful Humpty Dumpty’s engineers
Likely should have chosen other careers.
I mean come on, it sounds to me like they just didn’t try all that hard to put him back together. I’m sensing some sort of inside plot. Hamlet-style y’all.
For the record, the first draft was way weirder still than the finished product. At least I omitted the carrion birds.:)
Friday Wisdom; be blessed, don’t get too messed, remember to stay dressed. At least in public anyway.
A broken mind held together by cellophane and some tack.
