We’re on Life’s High

“The best mind-altering drug is truth.”
Lily Tomlin

Our mind is like a sieve

What we retain

can only remain,

whether accidentally

or incidentally,

as long as we live.

As time draws nigh

and we’re on life’s high

let’s inhale the truths

and exhale the lies

  2. I’ll inhale some beer to be very clear
    It won’t make me high
    and its what I can buy
    No trash to retain
    Keeping mentally sane
    My mind is always free
    when not thinking of money!

    hahaha…Thanks Eugenia for your influence!

  3. I love Lily Tomalin – used to watch Rowan & Martin’s Laugh-In every week, loved her in The West Wing, too. We don’t get her latest comedy here, which is a shame. It looks fun from the excerpts I’ve seen. We are in the middle of Brexit polling today. Too many lies propounded and so much division. I hope we can become one nation again soon.
