Tuesday Chatter Weekly – March 12, 2018


Nothing so completely baffles one who is full of trick and duplicity himself, than straightforward and simple integrity in another. – Charles Caleb Cotton

Word of the weekduplicity-(noun)-deceitfulness, double-dealing

Synonyms-deceit, deception, underhandedness, dishonesty, fraud, trickery, skulduggery, subterfuge, treachery, chicanery

The audacity of duplicity

A game of show and tell with its gimmickry

Sheeple question the tricky task of its stupidity

Schemes and chicanery behind closed doors

There ain’t no sunshine in a bureau drawer

If one had one’s druthers of living with dignity

They would validate the infinity of serendipity

The aha moment of acting wickedly is ho-hum

 It’s like walking the walk to a different drum

You know, like trying to walk and chew gum

Sometimes nowhere to hide, nowhere to run

Best enjoy those buttercups in the sun

  1. We caught some of that blizzard in ’93, too, remember? I came in from out of town the night before and it was misty and raining. By morning, it was snow, and lots of it. And remember how we were getting thunder, anyway? That was weird.

  2. Eugenia,

    We got hit with 22″ of snow with the Blizzard of 1993. That was an interesting and weird experience right out of the blue. Totally blew us away! I will never forget it as long as I live.

    These two lines from your poem speak to me the most…

    It’s like walking the walk to a different drum
    You know, like trying to walk and chew gum

    That about sums up my life. 🙂 Have a colorific week!

    • Thank you, Cathy. I’m glad you understand my whacky sense of humor.

      I lived in FL in 1993, however, I moved to NJ in 1996 and was faced with the Blizzard of 1996. I believe I was one of the few that thought it was fun. lol


  3. Hmm. Interesting quote. I guess someone full of trickery expects everyone else to be like him, thus find people with integrity rather baffling. Your witty poems always make me smile and I always find a little wise lesson tucked away in there.

  4. I am going on a limb here, and remembering times when Mother Nature was duplicitous: 60, and shirtsleeves, one afternoon, and a foot of snow, the next day. I followed snow, all the way from our home on the Navajo Nation, to the outskirts of Tucson. Yes, that included all of Phoenix. (1984).

    • Mom nature is having her way of being unpredictable. Wow, snow in Phoenix! The forecasts in our area are so far off, we don’t know what to expect. I learned to dress in layers years ago.
