Today on tinkered thinking, we have been drinking
and wandering on down with a mind that is shrinking.
As the cup fills,
we take more swills,
to ensure there is more room to pour.
But what for?
A full house has all it’s cards spoken for
so no one else need come through the door.
But what if we need space for just one more?
A story, an idea, advice filled with lore?
A crammed cranium, oozing at the ears
is bound to be riddled, clogged, and stuck up with fears.
Metaphors like draino, light poisons to shine our mental veneer,
to clear out the clogs and give our minds space to hear,
some new concept, a realization to ring true and clear.
Guzzle and swig in the name of the unknown,
to toast to old ashen ideas, now withered to bone.
Make way for the new
it comes in any hue. . .
Choose your trend,
to ride round the next bend,
our plans are bound for utopia!
And of all the blathering big babies you might turn an ear
Nevermind the babbling voice on the phone, in your pocket, so near.
There’s no telling what dear darlings in your mind such voice might flush clear,
So be a dear and steer clear, not a sheep, black, white, purple, but still loaded with fear.
For it’s me fair friend that preservers to dare,
with perfuse, diffuse, distributed feelings of care,
for you fellow stranger, traveler rough and rare.
I’ll sing till my tongue grows silver and sharp
waging war with a rhetorical harp,
so that when you dear friend
have a thirst to mend,
and again you wander on down to the watering hole
I’ll have waiting for you every day a full bowl
To drink with ears and eyes
from my web of words that tries
to teach you
How to tinker your drinking
so you’ll never drink without thinking
some kool-aide from a scheming spin-king.
So gather round thinkers and listen
Another episode has arisen.
