Behind The Hedge Brings The Edge!

What could it be? Could it be a tree? What's behind the hedge? Maybe a ledge. You could fall off. That may make you scoff. But what's really back there? Don't you have to know at your lair?

What is it?
What will happen?
Holy shit!
You start flappin.

Or another.
Or a new word.
Maybe your mother,
All is absurd.

You didn't see.
You didn't guess.
How can that be.
Look at that dress.

It's so shiny.
It's so new.
Wow, it went tiny.
Can that be true?

You wait and watch.
Or watch and wait.
Grab that scotch.
Await the fate.

You finally see.
You finally gasp.
It came to be.
You loosen your grasp.

But you're still sitting.
Maybe even lying.
Maybe the gym you're hitting,
And a TV you're spying.

Poses galore.
Poses and more.
Poses of lore?
Whoops, no encore.

In the middle.
Leaned on back.
Lying with a fiddle,
Gutter gets no flack.

But what aren't you?
Not on the edge.
No matter the view,
That's behind the hedge.

Is the cat wrong? Do you sit on the edge of your seat like a ding dong? You actually sit up from the couch or recliner and watch the TV like a hobo eyes food at a diner? Do you really go to the edge? Is that an honest pledge? That would make humans move in mass. They seem far too lazy for that to my little rhyming ass.

Later all, have a nice fall.

  3. Behind The Hedge Brings The Edge!
    And not too far off from the ledge
    Was able to see
    Through the tree
    Being thankful for the privilege

  8. I watch very little TV.
    But when I do I sit on the sofa
    As relaxed as I can be.

    1. Relaxing is the way

  9. I rarely sit down when I watch tv. I'm usually listening as I'm doing other things. But when I do, like for Game of Thrones, my world ceases to exist. I'm completely drawn into what I'm watching on the tv (or at a movie). I'm on the chesterfield with an afghan, and if something is scary, I'm peaking through my fingers. I may jump off my seat if startled. Laid back I am not! LOL Have a good one!

  12. I sit back and get comfortable when I watch TV. I've never been an edge-of-the-seat kind of person, not literally.

  13. I have no TV
    There's no edging for me
    I type camped on the floor
    Guess that makes me a bore
    Perhaps I should try the edge
    Like Sister Sledge
    But I'd rather not
    I like my carpeted spot.

  16. What if you go over the hedge? Do you end up in the animated movie of the same name? I'd love to meet Hammy the Squirrel. We have a lot in common.

  17. Halloween brings lots of scares
    Blood and guts and fall down stairs
    Vampires aren't my favorite friends
    Shivers down my spine it sends
    Scares me to the very edge
    Some even jump right off the ledge

  21. I'm too old to sit on the ledge of anything. My chubby body needs full support.

  22. I'm a writer, of course I sit on the ledge, always wondering what to write, what to submit, how to chose exactly the right words.

    Confusing sometimes; but life is never boring behind the hedges.
