“We About Lost Our Minds”

“Gummed Up” ©️C.P. Hickey 2019

“We About Lost Our Minds”

Trying as might,

Crawdads and doodads.

Believing poor sight,

Wiper blades move fast.

Seething from sight.

Who does? Who has?

Wrong is now right.

A taciturn morass.

Seeing one’s plight,

A blinding illusion.

A ritual rite,

A land of confusion.

Losing the fight,

Abstract pollution.

Born into plight,

A harbored delusion.

Life is hard for everybody, everybody.”_Thus spoke Ghostnutstra_11_7_17
