Stream of Consciousness for Blogophilia 28.6


Constipated soul
Doesn’t live life
As a well written story
If only….

Real life ruins the mellow
Mellow the ruins life real

Unencumbered by reality

The rag doll just
Thrown into a corner
Forgotten and broken

Real life’s ruins
Constipated joy
Incapable of release

Did the Ancients
Have a cure?
Hidden in their tombs

The Ancient Egyptians
Knowledgeable about most ills
Physical and emotional

But all that wisdom is lost
Backed up in the bowels of time
spirit, crushed

  1. Ha ha! It’s like comparing the world to intestines… i don;t know but that amused me a bit….

  2. Or as the Joker put it; “What this town needs is an enema.”

  3. Sad, it seems there is very little wisdom left….. and the little that is, quite fleeting. A most excellent, resonant poem! 😉

    So sorry for not noticing your post before. Sometimes I could just kick myself! I am sure the ancients had a remedy for all that ails humanity. 8 points Earthling! 🙂

    I like the way you prove that the politicians are full of it Sue… 🙂 ..
    I love the way you write this type of verse girl… powerful and to the point…
    with a comparison that touches on the one thing that links us all together no matter who you my be, rich man poor man beggar man thief… we are all connected to the bodily functions that keep us alive….
    so why not life itself your say!!… I have to agree wholeheartedly Sue…
