Just for fun

Dawn breaks and the sun shines down
More mind musings of a rabid clown
Tangent avenues leading nowhere fast,
Lead to a place that will leave you aghast
Sound and fury signifying nothing, zip
Going nowhere, an involuntary trip
He's the lead actor in a two-act play
Act one is ideas, act two trying to say
Something entertaining for you to read,
It's a race to the bottom with him in the lead
Downhill writing racer out over his skies,
Inverted face plant at ninety degrees
Wide World of Sports cameras are rolling
As he bites the ground and keeps on going
Ideas trailing as he's sliding in the snow,
The agony of defeat awaits further below
He's the grinning jester at the gates of dawn
That he has any talent, hey, just go along!

Couldn't disagree more, Mike, but excellent all the same.

Thank you, Hull--I'm an easy self-target!

Have you considered writing a book Mike? With all your works, you just may have much of it done already. It would be an interesting composition.

Thanks for thinking so well of my stuff, Penny; I'm on disability and can't have much income; having said that, I'd like to be published, but...
