Some side effects I had after reading some humorous, crazy poems! No offense to the authors.

Flying a Brain

After watching the first movie of Spider Man, ever since I wished to fly like Peter Parker. Many times I tied my wrists with white ropes, some attached to my ass, just in case of a bad fall. I swung myself from Sydney Tower, and I wished, to Bondi Beach to have a lobster.

Normally I would not pass the first avenue after the swing without somebody having to pick up my bones and limbs and carrying them off on a stretcher.

Today when I thought I was about to reach Darling Harbor, a sudden loud cheer rose from Luna Park. I got distracted and soon I found I hit a hundred of strings like a web!

It had a brain tired up at each string’s end. Like a kite flying freely in the sky. I thought it was so cool, and it was much better than scattering pieces of my body on the streets.

I then started to tie the rope on my brain and walked it like a dog, flew it like a kite, without swinging. I felt I could think better, act saner when my brain was not in the thick skull. But people thought I was very crazy. Because sometimes I dropped my brain by laughing too much and it had to be picked up by someone else, as I did not even know I had lost my marble.

I thought if there was anything here go wrong, it would all because of some lunatic’s fault. But it was fun and creative. So why not?

That is SOME magic rope, tying your ass and your brain, some would argue that on me, not much difference--excellent, Derina!

Ha ha! You are one of the authors that prompted me to write this crazy stuff. As Hully said I should do this more often. Hey hey. I might soon become as blood, as crazy, or as imaginative as you guys. The magic rope, for sure. Peter Parker was my favor Marvel hero. (As I am a fan of spiders) Inspired by him too.

You must do this more often, Derina! A great imaginative piece!

Ha! I was hastening in posting it in the first place, as it was out of my character. But I thought this is writing world, I should splurge on it. Thank you for your encourage I would do this more often.

You had me laughing out loud with this one Derina. You are full of delightful surprises. Sometimes it is great fun to write nonsense, and great fun to read, too.

Thank you for that. I agreed. I was backing off to post this one as it was out of my character. But I gave it a go. As some writings were too funny, I could not stop laughing all day long, and my colleagues had to pick up my marble, but I could not say to them why, so I wrote it it is. I'm glad that it made you laugh too. I am certainly getting more humors infused in me after reading humorous writings here. It did bring some laughter in our pressured life.

Excellent work Derina, I can see that you will soon qualify to be a full time resident here over looking the harbour at Luna Park. If not I believe the Zoo will soon have a vacancy!

Thank you. I had been to Luna Park twice. Zoo once. I think Zoo would do better for me. As I like to ride kangaroo and fight with koala...keep an eye for me on the vancancy

Scattered body parts all over doing things with web-like rope, is this Frankenstein's Monster with Spiderman's DNA implanted, to some capacity?

I hope it is. I could have chosen Gene Engineer as my career had I not gone to chase butterflies at the end of my Uni and married. Everything could just only use imagination now.
