October

Its too hot in the Sun and too cool in the shade.

Is this the best October day God made?

Far be it from me to mock your beliefs if you have any.

Beliefs are two a penny.

Will I vote blasphemy should not be a crime?

Is that a waste of time?

I do not favour insults and put downs.

In the circus watch the clowns.

I met Joe and my brother today and saw no snow.

Pending the penultimate, here I go.

Am I a poet or a holy show?

I don’t know.

Statement

The truth when perfectly stated is irrefutable.

Is that disputable?

Who says, you?

What am I to do?

Is one and one two?

Does the truth lie only in facts?

What about people’s acts?

Do you say motive matters, so do I.

May the truth lie in a lie?

A lie is the mirror opposite of the truth, as Shakespeare might say, forsooth.

So therefore yes.

When the truth is spoken is anybody’s guess.

I know I am not Plato, Plato is dead.

I speak instead.

Delay

I delay over a cup of coffee or a pint or a kiss.

I’m in no hurry when I’m experiencing bliss.

Delay seems to be a habit of mine.

Slowly I drink wine.

I admit I prevaricate and procrastinate.

In other words delay, if you want something from me, wait.

I admit I disappoint myself, I am not proud.

Will I do anything before I wear a shroud?

Relativity

Explaining relativity to Einstein I stumbled and broke my toe.

He said the law of gravity is old hat, you should know.

I said about quantum mechanics you were wrong.

He said no one knows everything, this conversation is terminated, so long.

Mute

A spokesman remained mute.

He didn’t even say don’t shoot.

Why was he elected?

Is he a dead man resurrected?

When he dies will someone say how do they know?

He never even said I told you so.

What is he there for, why does he exist?

When he dies will he be missed?

He never did anything right or wrong.

He was there anyway, so long.

Did he ever do more than take up space?

My fellow member of the human race.

Subconscious Mind

Is the subconscious mind a dirty trick played on us to make us sick?

And think we are thick?

Is it the excuse we use when other people we abuse?

Is it insane and mad and bad and nothing to make us glad?

Should your friendly local psychopath take a bath?

I ask mainly for information and to throw psychiatrists into consternation.

People who don’t believe in psychiatrists most need one, they are in denial.

So said a joker with a smile.

Can you pay their fee, can you afford?

They pretend they are not bored.

Take your ego trip if you must, you and your money turn into dust.

If you’re mad, never mind.

You got yourself into a bind.

Look the other way and find.

Peace of mind.
