The Accidental Contestant

My reply may quick; betray
but, it is yours that morphs to grey;

I'm beside myself, and not from any lice !

I loathe to be me, is what's true
so, the only thing that I can do;

is pick two seats, and calmly sit down twice.


A plethoric myriad of thoughts
escapes my brain like small robots

coercing all pedestrians to pause;

good thing for them, the lights glowed, red
for over half, changed their minds, instead;

that break alone saved barrels full of gauze !


The orb is slick with indigo
before sunlight, we'll have to go.

or, run the risk of stalling at the gate;

our own dimension will emphatically
highlight all our integrity;

be mindful as you fill your dinner plate !


Obstreperously, we're weighed at birth
our job's to live up to our worth,

bow down to me, if you don't know the rules !

Decidedly, they are not fair,
for each one broken, you gain a pair;

overdo things, and they'll seat you with the fools !

What did you think of the rhythm or pattern or pacing?
How was the beginning/ending of the poem?

But what were you referring to? fry. I guess it's towards some oddity of life. Without more details, we may never unearth the origin.

You know, be born without much money in a small town or inner city, work menial jobs all your life, smoke, drink then conveniently die at 65.

Good work

before the brooch pin, before the salve, fixed me in this parenthesis:
Horses fluent in the wind. A place, a time gone out of mind."

Let confusion reign, there in the words are hidden thoughts that even to your eyes bring a question, later can you do a little edit to add some reason for this ramble.
I sometimes write something along this type, but then put to the notepad and edit until reason grants me an audience.
I shall await it's return lol with delicate notes of a format of reason, Yours Ian.T

There are a million reasons to believe in yourself,
So find more reasons to believe in others..

...I believe i grasp very well of what you speak.
Thanx, for the read, and repast;
