  • David Wakeling

    I read this twice but cannot see the purpose.It's certainly not poetry

  • L. B. Mek

    (these desperate fools n their opinionated idiocy
    keyboard warriors, puking hate
    just to be afforded
    a shard of recognition
    by attempting to incite wroth
    doing it all, while claiming
    that gang warfare righteous fallacy
    in their judgementally warped religious zealotry)
    ignore the noise, dear poet
    this is wonderfully succinct and incisive
    cuts straight through, to that plague
    of weary we accumulate
    'to be or not to be'
    Shakespeare understood, so empathetically
    is it for nothing, we so strived
    in our youth
    is our reward this hollow, silence
    we've had to embrace
    to save, what's left of our sanity...
    in each next step we take
    or blank canvas, we tattoo
    we dare to ask, boldly!
    and on...
    we fight our great fight, daily
    smiling, at that mocking twilight

      Not in the least L.B. Thanks kindly. We have not been properly introduced so it doesn't really count and they have not gone over my other posts so have no context other than this singular experience.
      The heavens declare the glory of the Almighty and we are all part of that creation, some having worse days than others. All will be well.
      As for Shakespeare, well, then we are in good company regarding such queries. Here's to smiling at today's mocking twilight!

      Feels just like me on odd days.....

      Was going to comment 'Oh my. Never a dull moment for you, it seems.' but decided to forbear....

      • crypticbard

        Lol... never dull indeed! Your forbearance is well regarded but hardly called for DD. It's been an odd several days. Thanks mate.

        • Doggerel Dave

          Glad you feel that way.

          Ahh, so you have just 3 brain cells too - as I have! lol.

            In life it's all we ever really need!

            I somehow get the feeling that you've had a peak at my latest MRI. I thought it was there, but nothing showed up. Thank you my friend, I don't feel so alone.

            • crypticbard

              Most welcome friend. Thanks a bunch.

              this is so much like something I have incorporated into the manuscript of my next book 'A Handful of Ghosts' .. but far too far removed for you to ever try to do me for plagiarism .. Neville

                Nah, you're alright N... there are only so many words and thoughts in the language. Cheers.
