A Poem

Sell me the "Truth" and I tell you a

Riddle,

Outward looking, everything seems ok in the

Middle.

Potatoes crowding the couch are simply misplaced, never

Lazy,

I always knew that claiming I'm normal would sound

Crazy.

Say you've lost your appetite and I didn't hesitate to

Re-plate it,

The "burn notice," got us all fired up, we wonder whom

Cre-made it.

Things didn't go up in smoke till we got lost in the

Weeds,

Breaking news Live, on the broad shoulders of a cast that got lost in the

Feeds.

Rescue all of these "day dreamers," let's spring them from the

Night,

It was "a shot in the dark" that brought everything to

Light.

This is the day you give in to everything that you still

Fight,

We are strong enough to not say Yes but our "Will"

Might.

Gave up the search for the forbidden fruit and decided to fetch a

Snake,

With all the extra hands we've asked for how could we not catch a

Break.

Share a Laugh at my expense completely oblivious to the

Amount,

Time to get my numbers up while they assume I'm down for the

Count.

Promoting a change of space within these close

Quarters,

I've reconstructed enough walls to defensively not oppose

Borders.

Hats off to those who would preferably wear a thinking

Cap,

I am who I am, but who am I to be thinking

That?
