Fix it or Nix it


Is it true?

Oh, if I only knew

But nary a clue

A flimsy cue

Thoughts askew

Can you absolutely know it’s true?

So much is doubtful

Undo the word thoughtful

Mix it with spiteful

There’s no absolute

Time to reboot

How do you react, what happens, when you believe that thought?

Take time me thinks

Can’t trust broken links

Best ignore the finks

If only one eye winks

I need a mixed drink

Who would you be without that thought?

Hey, this is my best side

Don’t wanna be cock-eyed

 Taking chaos in my stride

  A long ride or a short ride

Common sense be my guide

    Love-love-LOVE this! Although my own thoughts weren’t expressed poetically, they are much the same responses as yours to each of Katie’s “Four Questions.” Common sense indeed! My best guide too. Very clever, Eugenia.

    I enjoyed this one. Take life as it comes, and stay flexible for changes. We would be no-where or now-here without a philosophy, and this is yours.

    Thanks for joining in!

    Yes, common sense though not always common is always wise to follow.
