I'm just playing around with the phrases of "bein' as how" and seein' as how." It's really crazy.


Seein’ as how! what does that mean?
I hear it said and it must be keen.
Does it go well with Bein’ as how?
Is it OK to say that now?
Is “How” the name of a certain guy?
Or is it twins? Oh me, oh my.
Why would their folks give them this name?
Were they trying to gather great fame?
Is it a guy we should emulate
with vision as a special trait?
Are we to try to look like him
from our head to every limb?
Or are we to see things from his view
so we’ll know the right thing to do?
Does he help us see wrong from right
from early morning ‘til late at night?
We must “see as how”, I’m sure it’s true
if we “be as how” in all we do.
We can be until we’ve seen
does anyone know what I mean?

Well, Larry, seein' as how you ask't, what my Daddy would say
about your poem is like 'You're crazy as a loon, boy." I heard
him say it a lot, when he wasn't saying, "Oh, the dog's hind leg."

It ain't makin' sense, like a Rubik's cube with all sides with the same color, trying to get it to click together...that's crazy enough for you?
This is a funny way to start my Monday, thanks.
