UPON A MIDNIGHT DREARY (WHILE AVOIDING RAISING SPECTERS)

.

ACCIDENTALLY.

That is how I came across this poem written about 4 years ago for reasons I cannot remember.

.

Patrue, mi Patruissimo

-or-

Enough is Enough

.

Like schoolchildren during the Roman Empire

you don’t know it’s not going to last

though your father goes on about the end

when he’s drunk

which is always

(it seems)

  and mom is too busy

with your little brother who has ‘problems’

that good beatings don’t do a thing about

so what’s left for you to do?

I mean, really?

SKETCHES OF THE BAD FEELING

.

Your wickedness makes you as it were heavy as lead, and to tend downwards with great weight and pressure towards hell; and if God should let you go, you would immediately sink and switfly descend and plunge into the bottomless gulf, and your healthy constitution, and your own care and prudence, and best contrivance, and all your righteousness, would have no more influence to uphold you and keep you out of hell, than a spider’s web would have to stop a fallen rock

-Jonathan Edwards

THE WORLD DON’T MOVE TO THE BEAT OF JUST ONE DRUM

“It takes, Diff’rent Strokes
It takes, Diff’rent Strokes to move the world”

-Richard Cheese

 

One day maybe I’ll let you in on my in-depth analysis of the theme song from the hit television show, ‘ Diff’rent Strokes’, but, right now, I don’t think you could handle it.
