Old And New Get A Clue!


 New and old.
Truth be told.
No fountain of gold,
That may take hold.

Stuck like mold.
That's not bold.
Could make you fold.
If you're sold.

Sold on what?
The butt of a mutt?
Nah, not that rut.
Mind going putt putt?

But none are new.
Maybe new to you.
Yep, it's true.
Through and through.

But that you knew.
You had a clue.
Just out it flew,
You and your clue.

Old come nagging.
Down they're sagging.
Causing some lagging.
Maybe some red flagging.

What was that?
Still lost due to the cat?
Insecurity chewing the fat?
Get it where you're at?

Nothing new.
New to you.
No new is due.
That is true.

Someone had it.
Someone thought the shit.
Someone had a fit.
Someone bought into it.

Someone did not.
Someone tossed the lot.
Someone avoided a clot.
Someone just fought.

Same old insecurities at play even if a new year has come to play. Which someone are you? If you're here then I'm guessing the later that came due. On insecurities I'll take a pass. I'm too much of a crazy little rhyming ass.

Enjoy your winter, smash a printer.

  6. Time to throw out some things in the new year
    including those insecurities that hold us at bay
    out with the old, in with the new
    and maybe more happiness will be here to stay

  17. Out with the old, and in with the new,
    And that includes insecurities, too.
    No time to worry, no time to waste,
    'Cause time's a-flying; gotta make haste.
    But one big question I've got, you see...
    When "getting rid of the old," why ya lookin' at ME?

    1. You caught our glance?

  18. Letting insecurities pass
    is a plan with real class
    One we should all follow en masse.

  27. I'm taking a pass on insecurities, too, Pat! I'm feeling pretty good about life ~ well except for the big unknown, our president elect. 2017 is off to a great start, and I am feeling great about my writing. Hope all is well with you and the cats! Sending you a big hug, and them whatever is their favorite belly or ear scratch! Take care!

  30. I don't need any New insecurities, I'm fine with the ones I have. If I start feeling any anxiety I just think of my friend's mother in law. She was very upset that she was told by her doctor that she was healthy. 2 days later she said she was dying and needed to go to the hospital
