Tuesday Chatter Weekly – February 5, 2018

“Be yourself; everyone else is already taken.”-Oscar Wilde

Word of the weekpreternatural (adjective)-beyond what is normal or natural. Synonyms-extraordinary, exceptional, unusual, uncommon, remarkable, phenomenal, abnormal, accountable, strange.

Words that rhyme or nearly rhyme-lateral, collateral, natural, masterful, pastoral, mackerel, unilateral.

Methinks it’s happenstance that preternatural events

 Are an intellectual exercise for the sixth sense

The dangling tapestry over the randomness of life

Creates a woven song with lilting murmurs of the fife

Twinkle twinkle little stars watch out for flying cars

The hoi polloi lost their GPS on their way to Mars

Do we put an ear to the ground to hear that sound

An orchestrated performance bound to astound

No matter where we reside, we’re homeward bound

But our world is full of toodle-loos and sad goodbyes

While sheeple take the low road amidst sighs and lies

     Their copy/paste recipes missing a slice of the pie

Perhaps, it will behoove us to nurture the sixth sense

Seeing the unseen may find common sense

It was just yesteryear we knew the why’s and the whence

  1. Another Tuesday cracker Eugenia. I think some of my golf shots may have landed on the moon 🙂 Still laughing at the thought of the hoi poloi and their GPS on the way to Mars.

  2. Eugenia,

    A cleverly written poem, as usual. Oh to be talented like this, I wish! 😉 Thinking about your On This Day in History regarding UK women’s right to vote granted if over the age of 30. Really, when you think about it that’s not a bad age for anyone. I read years ago that judgment isn’t totally formed until the age of 25 and yet we give kids the right vote at 18 and drive at 15. Of course, these laws can’t be changed easily without a lot of people going berserk. *roll eyes* Thanks for hosting Tuesday Chatter.

    • I’m delighted you like my poem, Cathy. It seems we’re made to grow up too fast, yet, it could be a nudge in the right direction. Depending on upbringing and education, our younger generations can be capable of making intelligent decisions. Then, there is the other side of the coin where even adults can’t make good decisions. Thank you for visiting Tuesday Chatter.
