I don't recall exactly how I came to write this, but I was obviously having one of Those Days, and it seemed clear to me that civilization was unraveling.


Nitwits wrangle,

English mangle

all the live-long day.

 

Wasting time and

wasting money

in their nitwit way.

 

Max the plastic,

blather, spastic

till their final breath.

 

Clack the keys

until they freeze

in online mental death.

 

LW

Nitwits are everywhere and for that I am grateful. Free amusement and fodder for thoughts and writings. Patrick

Isn't it the truth? The English spoken on the news is appalling and the scroll along the bottom has some "beauts" when it comes to spelling. I have to laugh or I'll have a breakdown.

I read this twice, after the first reading I put it away for a while to let it settle in. After the second reading, I think the last verse struck me as saying, "Call 1-888- right now, or go online at 'am i crazy.com,'? to take our free test."

Just rambling here while I wait for the meds to kick in.

Cheers,
Dan
