Springs Better Half
When It Implodes!
>> View all 1,432
My mind was going into a ravenous rampage
Malevolent metaphors would blister the page
Did that sniveling diva of disguise
Hope to smear me with her lies
Always acting like a twaddling twit
Getting herself embroiled in a snit
But wait, if I answer in kind I'll be just like her
Though the name calling helps to calm my fur
I'd best count to ten and think things over
There is surely a wiser way to reproach her
Lay out the truth use no illusions
Let others draw their own conclusions
I won't lower my demeanor to her sphere
I'll do better if I lift her up in prayer
Yeah I know people prefer an all out mud and gore
Yep, the same people who shout for an end to war
Makes me wonder if peace will ever occur
When we're in a cycle of taking on every him or her

|Eileen, anyone who tries to smear you would be the biggest fool. You are one of the strongest, most grounded people on AD. The problem with smear campaigns is that the person being smeared usually comes out clean, but the person smearing will never, ever be able to get the stench off their hands. And they will leave their smelly mark all over the place. So worry not, this is how, what goes around comes around.
Peace to you.

|It can be so tempting to get into the mud as you have shown in this write; but, the solution that is best for all is always the answer of light. Great write.|

|(lol, Phil)Seems we're all suffering from short fuses these days. Have you noticed the general lack of courtesy? Wonder what's going on while we're so busy wrestling with each other? The root of anger is fear and there's enough anxiety out there to make me want to go out and buy drug company stock. You have the right attitude, Eileen. Write out those malevolent metaphors(privately) on paper then throw it away-good therapy-then as you have said, say a prayer for the misguided. A good thought keeps us from spreading ill will. I usually go off like a firecracker but then there's peace after the storm, lol. If you don't release anger, it affects the heart in a bad way. Great write...

|Oh yes I agree Eileen! It's sad that we
have to resort to these type of tactics.
I know there are no answers there.

|Good thoughts here Eileen!
I was especially tickled with several choices of words: "ravenous rampage, diva of disguise, mud and gore," and my favorite had to be:
Man oh man did that ever conjure up images of some of the English Lit teachers I suffered under.
Good job and
Oodles of blessings to you and yours,

When attacked, the best thing to do is not to launch a counter-attack; I've had to learn that one. Extar prayers are being said for you today. :) An excellent write, well done!
(((HUGS))) and love, Karla.
