If wishes were fishes

wake up and see
religion throughout
history has been
a destructive force
for the human mind

In the midst of life
we are in death (think it was Shakespeare?)
but so very true
try as we may
we are not going
to live forever :(

I have loved
few songs as much
as "Any Dream Will Do"
and am glad
that finally
I managed to post
this so resonant song
of the times
not just in America
but everywhere

IMO rose coloured glasses
lead to bumping
into things
and never finding
the beauty of
what's in fact
in front of their eyes

So sohy if this is a bad day for a nurse then reconsider @) you could be making much more money as a scammer...and b) you won't ever have to put up with annoying invalids etc. and those nurse type things that upset you, like, say, laying out a dead patient for the mortuary, again :D

Computing Daughter stepped in and f****ed up my computer (obviously this intervention would improve my posts:bang :) ... just when I wanted to poetically apologise to Sohy for my snarky post re nursing etc. and scammers..

I wish that
when I'm old
even older
that the younger
posters give those
of us who have lived
and learned
a modicum of
respect

Scientology

A lucid dream
is a ray of light
tucked away
in the grey cells
until ready
to let the ever
ready mind
know the truth

Mania maybe
is a kind of happiness?

my long suit.
Happy to be
alive.

Clinging together
gives I suppose
a degree of
solidarity
But it also includes
the mythic principle
that we are
all the same
Fortunately this
has been
shown
over many years
to be untrue
Mostly with the
stand alones
of the Art world :notworthy:
