Its how a person is that matters not how they look.

Looks are superficial, read a book.

Not just the cover, that tells you nothing at all.

The whole experience matters, the world is not small.

Hollywood and Facebook cause mental illness and distress.

The happiness industry so called is a mess.

This is an age of image, the image is supreme.

We live in a dream.

Singers who can’t sing, actors who can’t act.

The world of the untrue fact.

The false has taken over, don’t believe a word.

You know the real thing when you see it, seldom seen and heard.

Some people have both, some people have it all.

Then they kill themselves, the myth conquers all.

Find a person who is real, find one of those.

The king wears no clothes.

Write A Poem

You don’t try to write a poem, you let it come to you.

That’s what to do.

You may need to wait, so wait.

When it comes don’t hesitate.

Write it then or forget.

It may be your best line yet.

The end needs more waiting time.

So I find.

Not always, there is no rule.

Contrary to what you were told at school.

Read over, simplify.

Do or die.

It really is that simple, believe me.

Practise makes perfect, wait and see.

Betting Coup

A racing dog was very good, the owners knew.

This is the story of a betting coup.

They put it in a race, drugged it so it would not run fast, it more or less came last.

Weeks later they entered it for another race, the odds were very high.

My friend bet on it, so did two others at the same time to not change the odds, the dog flew by.

It won. They tested it for drugs, there werent any.

Why did the dog do so badly before they asked, they did not like losing a penny.

It was his first race, he was not used to it, they said.

They took large winnings home, the bookies lost instead.

That’s the only time my friend ever bet.

He tells that story yet.

I prefer betting on a near dead cert.

I don’t want to be hurt.

If you’re not fast you’re last someone said.

I’ll go to bed.

The Ultimate Reality

The ultimate reality is here.

Drink beer.

What did you expect?

You were correct.

What do you want, pie in the sky?

Or a pizza by and by?

Don’t make me cry.

Maybe, I don’t know.

Don’t say I told you so.

I’m dying to find out.

What its all about.

I’ll give you a shout when I do.

Between me and you.

Be brave, it doesn’t matter.

You could live in Stoneybatter.

It looks good to me.

I’ll wait and see.

I don’t want to gild the lily.

That would be silly.

This poem is important, mull over it like wine.

It might make sense to you in time.

The ultimate reality is as yet unknown.

Need I tell you on the phone?

You are not alone.

The Future

May I put forward the idea that the future has not arrived?

I could say something clever but that might be contrived.

The future is a well kept secret.

You will know the future when you meet it.

Winter is okay when you heat it.

Conversation makes the world go round and sometimes makes you dizzy.

I could say more but I’m busy.

Christmas Card

I got a Christmas card today from someone who is going away.

I sent none so far, not one.

I may get around to it if I do it.

I had my card made last year, its here.

I meant to make a new one but it blurred.

Something occurred.

It looks absurd.

Someone spoke that line, its Christmas time.

My brother gets some credit here.

Good cheer!

Quotable #70: Indifference

Learn Fun Facts


“Indifference to all the actions and passions of mankind was not supposed to be such a distinguished quality at that time, I think. I have known it very fashionable indeed. I have seen it displayed with such success that I have encountered some fine ladies and gentlemen who might as well have been born caterpillars.” — Charles Dickens, David Copperfield, 1850

“I don’t worry about what other people think of me. It’s one of the things I most admired about my dad growing up. He didn’t give a hoot what others thought. He was who he was. It’s one of the qualities that has kept me most sane.” — Chris Kyle

“The highest indifference is when indeed you ignore you are ignoring someone.” — Luigina Sgarro

“I hate feeling hate but feeling nothing feels worse.” — Brian Spellman, Cartoonist’s Book Camp, 2014

“They say philosophers and wise men are…
