More Ranting, in poem form

C’mon, guys! Get angry and enter the A Mused Poetry Contest by this Friday. I promise that it’s fun!!

Assphorisms

Roses are red, ’cause they’re all full of thorns
That pricked you and caused you to bleed.
Violets are blue ’cause they’re feelin’ fed up
With being around all the weeds.

The bluebird of happiness doesn’t exist,
‘Cause Fate shot it, and served it with rice.
‘Fact, the only bird he and Karma will give
Is the one that isn’t so nice.

Think positive. Right; like my thoughts are the why
For pandemics; bankruptcies; death.
Moments that might take our breath all away
Are mostly just taking our breath.

The one thing I’ve got, right down to an art
Is lack of an income; cash flow.
Money can’t buy up my happiness, see,
So my mood ought to perk up tenfold.

My momma said there would be days like today
But not any days like the rest.
She couldn’t have known ’bout the last ten twenty forty years
When she said I should give it my best.

In conclusion, I’ve seen that the problem is all
The people we’ve voted to lead.
It might also be my life consequences
……
Nope. It’s th’ gov’ment, indeed.

    That looks like a tasty cup of smiling coffee. I can just see the bluebird of happiness on rice being on the menu. Nice rant.

    ‘As democracy is perfected, the office of the president represents, more and more closely, the inner soul of the people. We move toward a lofty ideal. On some great and glorious day, the plain folks of the land will reach their heart’s desire at last, and the White House will be adorned by a downright moron.’ HL Mnecken 1922

      Great quote. 🙂 I don’t think it’s very polite toward our current leadership, but still a great quote…

        Apologies for the typo on Mencken earlier but my favorite of his is: ‘For every problem, there is a solution that is simple, neat, and wrong.’ And for a laugh, https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bathtub_hoax Has to be a future prompt in there somewhere 🙂

    ok here’s my follow up rant to a snow storm post earlier in the week

    Snow Sucks
    Ice is even worse
    especially when
    you fall on your arse
    well just the love handle, hip and calf
    I hate to shovel
    Takes the breath out of me
    Anxiety creeps in and guilt grabs a hold of me
    as my 12 years younger wife riddled with back, foot and wrist pain
    picks up my slack
    snow
    And ice go away
    bugger off and annoy
    the oafish jerk that feigned concern
    when I fell and offered no assistance
    Men, bah we suck
    Women…Y’all Rock
