Sometimes nonsense makes sense



The muse reminds….


Not all that rises to the top is desirable


Words have meaning

Words have value

Wasted words settle on the surface

Much like….










Is a missile that seeks to derail logic




I remind the muse is highly overrated


Beer without foam is stale


A latte without froth is just warm milk


Whey makes some mighty fine Swiss cheese


Chaff helps feed a hungry cow


Slag is an eco hero…it reduces CO2 emissions during cement manufacture





Helps the world go ‘round while laughing at itself


I tell the muse who has since left the building

Plotting and scheming his next assault


This round I win….I think

Thanks for the adroit commentary on my nemesis. I will endeavor to devour nonsense regularly in order to keep myself regular--I think.

Win? Lose? Whose keeping score? The enjoyment is in the nonsensical logic of it all.

Humor is sometimes raucous and other times full of elegance, and either way it always works. Your renderings are tokens of creative power, and they help us out of this insanely serious state of mind we live in. You win. Tower of Power. I rest my case.
