Melodrama ain’t mellow….

FFolkes,

“A test of what is real is that it is hard and rough.
Joys are found in it, not pleasure.
What is pleasant belongs to dreams.”

Whites Tavern 1630

White’s Tavern, Belfast, Ireland est. 1630 a.d….

Just a few moments ago, I was gifted with a bit of bitter ironic humor, directed, naturally, at myself. I had to laugh at me for having the following thought, to wit: “Discipline used to be easier….” Bwahahahaha! It is only when I reach this degree of stupid the true bozoid nature of reality becomes clear, and my temporary insanity pops like the bubble it is.

Discipline isn’t supposed to be easy, whether it’s for one’s self, or for another. If it were easy, everybody would be able to do it, for everybody prefers ‘easy’ to ‘hard’…. which, of course, is a complete denial of reality, where we find the hard way is ALWAYS the easy way, and, vice versa…..

Now, in the past, I might use such an event as the basis for a rant/discussion about human nature…. but, I’m not really in a mood to dissect such a complex subject into discussable parts (yes, I just made up another word; sue me….), so, instead, I’ll go on to the next section, then beyond, with no more concern for propriety than I’ve ever shown. Not only that, but, if you wish to wade through this mess to the end, you have to choice but to come along for the ride, such as it is. You see, this is all I could come up with for this section. S’okay, though, the remaining three came out just fine. You’ll see….

Shall we Pearl?

Platitudes for Attitudes

Platitudes shake us, attitudes break us.
Life can be a real pain, y’know?
Still, if we don’t fight where it takes us,
it’s a pretty straight row to hoe..

A lot of what we see and hear
isn’t always in the best of taste.
Life at large can be one long frisson of fear.
Making an effort often seems a huge waste.

Pundits, dogma dogs, myrmidons, oligarchs & pimps;
assholes and predators every one.
Twisted, sick, anti-humans; anomalous, ignorant wimps.
Logic says, every time, lobotomize ’em, & be done.

Illusions, delusions, confusions, a dedicated data dump,
bilious, divisive, spicy with hatred and fears.
Inflation, immigration, promises from the clownish Trump
Leaving even our basest survival heavy with tears.

Ancient sages left signs on the path to peace,
for those with wit to see.
No need for undue effort, no quest for golden fleece.
All we ever need to do, is be.

I TOLD y’all to be careful! Oh, no, I guess I didn’t. Oh, well; I hope y’all are okay. Tell you what, I’ll give you some time to recover before we try this again. I’ll be back in a day or so with some more…. hmm. Not sure what to call it, so, I’ll leave it at “more”…. I’ll be back with more ‘more’. In the meantime, rest, recover, & prepare for another round of exploring consensual reality with a relative madman…. Ta, then, luvs….

Y’all take care out there,
and May the Metaphorse be with you;
Blessed Be, dearest Carole, Mark,Theresa, & Richy
and everyone else, too…

When I works, I works hard.
When I sits, I sits loose.
When I thinks, I falls asleep.

Which is Why….

Sometimes I sits and thinks,
and sometimes,
I just sits.
