I added a little to this play of words. This is about the people out there who can't see anything good in anyone, and spend their lifes shooting poison arrows of gossip in all directions.


To many thoughts invading
peace of mind evading.
Irratic fanatic seeing in pattterns
staying clear of all that matters.

Cactus head
needles shead
upon the world
in tounge absurd.

seeing in all directions
lacking some in predictions.
Thought contraction
mind in fraction.

Cactus head
needles shead
upon the world
in tounge absurd.

Grey matter in disarray pattern
an infinite puzzle to piece together.
A lost mind a speeding freight train
caught in a vortex of pain.

Cactus head
needles shead
upon the world
in tounge absurd.

This is when you tell them to sit on their own head. Patrick

Elisabeth, "Cactus Heads" are uniformed people with little perspectives -- anyone can hate and be critical -- it takes a wise person to extend the hand of love and compassion -- may peace and love be always with you my friend -- Jon Michael

When you come across people like in your writing, just keep walking by because it is not worth stopping to hear their complaining.

Be always safe,

I like it and yes there are far too many nasty people feeding on the misfortunes of others.
Reviewed by Paul Judges 6/3/2010
Very well composed, Elisabeth
