Thank you, but no thank you!

The title finicky is awarded mostly to people who are particular about what they want in life. Be it their personal space, their food or apparel or the way others should behave, as per their point of view.

I have known a few of these people. Most are old people, who for some reason become fixed in their ideas. They will reject the food specially prepared for them because it is a micro millimeter away from their perception of how it should look and taste. The same principles are usually applied to their other requirements in life. This problem can be a form of OCDor can be just a desire to be…

    Riffing Cathy to Infinity, Finicky

    It is raining, cats and clowns here in Jackson.
    I wish I had an umbrella here at my disposal.
    Bolt of lightning, clap of thunder, in was on!
    I was hoping for thunder snow; got a squall.

    When it comes to weather, I’m a finicky guy.
    When it comes to ice cream, hand cranked.
    When push comes to shove, I wonder why…
    Come April, how are you with being pranked?

    This deal’s all about my Birthday, you know;
    these random poems with no motive clear.
    Trenchant title intact, easy come, easy go;
    no room (or cognition) for emotion, I fear.

    Does your melancholy ever wear a smile?
    When caught in the cracks, do you lean?
    The ways I see you weather a daily trial,
    boasting broadest smile I have ever seen.

    I sit with spinners, counting words aloud,
    speaking of coffee as their elixir of life.
    They design their vests, wear them proud,
    They cut with a spoon, stir with a knife.

    I saw Cathy’s poem, “Little Baby” and… well, you know how I am when I get started.
