Sometimes nonsense makes sense


Nonsense

 

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….

 

Froth

Foam

Chaff

Whey

Slag

 

Nonsense

 

Is a missile that seeks to derail logic

 

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

 

 

Nonsense

 

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.
