"A Warped Mind is a Terrible Thing to Waste!'

"Waist Not - Want Not!"

In the immortal words of Oliver Twist -

"Please Sir - can I have More?"

Jean Luc Piquard ...

'MAKE IT SO!"







Sound and Sense

© - Tom Hyland - 08-19-09


Some sounds make Sense -
Some Donít!
Some Senses sense Sound -
Others Wonít!

Your eye canít Smell -
Your nose canít Hear -
Your ear canít Taste -
Oh dear - oh dear - oh Dear!

Would I give you a ĎBum Steer?í

As the bell did toll, or Peal -
She did her banana - Peel -
Her Squealing bounced off the Ceiling -
Isnít a cry of Glee Appealing?

While the dealer was Dealing -
His tactile sense was Feeling -
His cut finger was Healing -
ĎCause his corpuscles were Congealing!

Is your Crazy Glue working? Sealing?

Is your sense of sound - Sound?
Or - do you have trouble Hearing?
Is a lack of sense - Nonsense?
Does praying require Kneeling?

If a tree falls in the Woods -
And no one is Present -
Does the thudding sound Reverberate?
Is it harsh - or Pleasant?

By now - are your senses Reeling?

ĎVeryí - en Espanol - es - Muy -
I - in Francais - is - Moi -
An exclamation is - My Oh My!
Ours is not - to reason Why!

Ithyphallic has two diverse meanings:
1. relating to or composed in the meter used in hymns
to the ancient Greek god, Bacchus -
2. in sculpture, painting, or other art, having or showing an erect penis.

An obvious reaction to admiring Venus!


In Closing - let me say This - about That -

Is there Sound - in Sense?
Is there Sense - in Sound?
How much does it Cost - in Cents -
To Replace - Nonsense with - Common Sense?

Common Sense? Didn't Thomas Paine write about this over 200 years ago? Shoud be manditory reading for some...every year. (oh, not you included :o) Another great read, friend Tom...

Think that is where we are at the moment as common sense went out some time ago I'm afraid...

Be always safe,

LOL. How much indeed. What does one do when they feel like 2 cents waiting for change? J'nia

Can man get constipated by drinking Crazy Glue?

Reviewed by Lori Moore 8/19/2009
Nonsense can be replaced with a degree through the use of cents, but I'm not sure cents can buy common sense. Very nice.
