A Little Deter If You Ruffle Fur!

People sure can kick up a stink. You humans do it with a wink. I'm not talking about gas. That can easily pass. May flare up a nostril or two. But that shall pass too. Right. On with it. No need to hiss and spit.

Look at you.
You have a new view.
A different way of thinking.
Did I just see blinking?

Not the good kind.
More like the, "are you out of your mind?"
Yep, I saw that indeed.
More are even following the lead.

Got a new idea that may work.
Now that could be a perk.
Could give you lots of fun.
It may or may not be done.

But whoops, there it is.
The crazy look biz.
You are just plain nuts.
No, you don't have guts.

Sit back and relax.
Work and pay tax.
Don't be crazy with any of that.
You may just end up with scat.

I mean it may be a good notion.
It may even cause a commotion.
But it probably won't do a thing.
So go have the same old fling.

You can't afford to waste time.
You won't always be in your prime.
Get a 9-5 and work it.
Then do the same old shit.

I don't mean to offend.
But you can't buck the trend.
That just isn't the way to be happy.
You'll end up always sappy.

Wait until you retire.
Then the idea you can admire.
You may very while expire,
But there will be no walking on a wire.

That is a neat idea though.
I just wanted you to know.
You are better off listening to me.
Nix any such notions and just let it be.

Hmm, just proves better off keeping new ideas to yourself. Don't want chicken shit humans putting them back on the shelf. Or maybe lazy shit ones. Of each there are tons. Ever have an idea crushed by a so called friend? They were though just trying to be helpful in the end. Pffft to such a pass. I'll do what I want with my little rhyming ass.

Experience spring, have a fling.

    1. Yes, I had an idea/dream that was crushed
      by a so-called-friend.

      It is better to keep some ideas to yourself as some might steal them as well and that is not so swell! Especially at work when no credit comes due!

  4. From a life looking backwards, you better make choices that suit you. You don't get to do it over again.

    I used to be a cat lady. Then I got kicked off the island. I'm a lady with dogs now.

  6. Ideas are good to have
    Of something new to do
    But putting them into practice
    Can cause one a bit of rue.

  7. My ex-fiancee (the second one) was able to find the negative side of everything. I could have won a million dollars in a lottery (not that I actually buy lottery tickets) and she would have said "Well, people are going to be bugging you to give them money, and you'll probably die before you get to spend all of it, and then there are all those taxes..." Whoever coined the phrase "rain on my parade" must have known someone like her.

  22. My firm belief
    Is that curiosity is grand
    Can't handle those
    Whose new thoughts never land

    I used to hate, with a passion, meetings that always started off with our supervisors saying, "We're just brainstorming. Tell us what you think. No such thing as a bad idea."
    Yeah. Right. Until one made a suggestion and it was slapped to the ground in record time. Grrr...

    1. Never land at all
