Sitting upon my throne
Doing a morning chore
When I looked up from by Digest
To see her hiding 
Behind the bathroom door.

Filled with my blood 
She stood
Blinded by the light
I grabbed a wad
Too neatly
Folded it just right!

I had just been thinking 
How nice it was 
The cold outside
Would finally do them in
And wouldn’t you know
Just as I thought that
I found one, within!

So I leaned forward
One crouching step 
Side shuffling my pants across the floor
And squashed that
Flying sucker
That will suck my blood 
No more!

Hey!!! I’m Not Brilliant!

Standard


I’m not embarrassed to admit that I’m not brilliant! I’m not all that intelligently and physically endowed nor do I have a eidetic memory.
But, I am convinced that I am aware of what works and doesn’t work, know the difference between heart think and brain think, trust in physics and natures trends, am somewhat a natural engineer, artfully creative, and thirsty. 
All of these things together allow me to have a personality, protect myself and family, question all things, know morally right from wrong, and have the ability to create something from nothing with great enthusiasm. 
I’m extremely happy with this. 
I’m satisfied that many of you are more academic than me, and that I surround myself with ‘like’ personalities, maybe not exactly, but as a package, my equal.
I am also convinced that our numbers are diluted by an almost equal percentage of severely un-balanced leaky people. 
How do I explain why they are the way they are? 
I’m only guessing here, but an educated guess!  I think they are stuck (some of the essential pieces and parts are lagging behind) somewhere in the evolutionary learning curve that leads up to us! RDD

Houses Built on the Grains of Lies (comment)

Standard

Even though the truth is documented and witnessed, over half of the people insist on living within, and passing laws that credit lies, so that the heart of the weak and the pocketbook greedy may be satisfied.
As long as we live in a untruth oriented life…. our human troubles will increase outside those of nature that we may not be able to prevent. (Even the cost of raging nature can be made worse by those ignoring or lying about what can be done) Ronald Douglas Drobeck
