You might wish to check your intellect at the door. This is utter nonsense. You should see the grin on my face!



If a boa constrictor picks you for a feast
Sing loudly and well: I shall be released.

When the pilot can no longer make the plane go
Start a chorus of Over the Rainbow.

The Titanic has dumped you where you cannot stand.
Turn to someone and sing I wanna hold your hand.

All along the watchtower
Men with guns hold all the power
Light my fire, then harmonize
So what if Smoke gets in your eyes.

Wouldn't life be nice, more fun
If we gave songbooks to everyone?


Note: They promised I would have my brain back by a week from Wednesday. (annual cleaning/polishing) We'll see. Everybody sing!

If nonsense be the food of sanity, play on, give me excess of it (sorry, William!). The "nonsense" you have penned here, katy, is well within the tradition of writers like Lewis Carroll. There is a method in your madness: Long may your Mad Muse bring sanity to our mad, mad world!

Oh geez... I laughed at your comment before I even got to the poem, Katy. Then, I laughed throughout the poem. Uh hunh... then I got to the real finale - (now my cat is looking at me oddly, wondering what the hell is so funny)! You, my dear, are a real hoot - THANKS! And hey, whilst you're at the cleaners, would ya mind askin' 'em what's taking so long with mine? Me thinks I really, really need to get it back.

Tell them to keep it, this is fun :-) ..........When you wrote the words, "Men with guns hold all the power" the song "Smoke on the water, fire in the sky" by Deep Purple came to my mind :-) Guess my brain is at the cleaners too :-)

Personally, Katydid, I think we never had brains to begin with. I never knew what to do with brains anyway. Around here they're just something to sit on.
