“Be yourself; everyone else is already taken.”-Oscar Wilde
Word of the week–preternatural (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
