well?

There was an accident at Morlee Court
someone could have died
though
they didn’t
but
if they had
how long would it be
until their ghost
started haunting the place?
Is there training for that
after you’re dead?
and
what’s the wage?
or
do you have to pay
to learn how to haunt folks?
my cousin never mentioned
anything about it
and
he was dead
for almost 3 minutes
but
maybe that’s not long enough
to make training worthwhile
who knows?
I know
I don’t want to die
anywhere near Morlee Court
because
it’s not the kind of place
I would ever want to haunt

Why not consider the circumstances?

.

.

I mean it. What possible reason could you have for not doing so?

This weekend you there in America will be celebrating Independence day, eating hot dogs, watching fireworks, getting weepy about people defending freedom, but I think it wouldn’t be difficult for you, say waking up before everyone else (the first rays of the sun dancing on the morning dew) and finding a comfy spot (soft over stuffed pillows, a cat snuggled up against your leg purring softly) with your laptop or iPad, and a beverage (caffeinated or not whichever you prefer, it’s up to you, makes no difference to me), and really read carefully (perhaps even taking notes) all of the circumstances I have laid out for you. There have been others who have done it, or so they have claimed, so, you wouldn’t be the first, but you would be in a very select group of people, and that’s kind of cool. Just thinking that only you and some guy in Pittsburgh, and a lady in Glendale are the only one’s to ever have accomplished a complete examination of the circumstances, wow, that’s neat. So do it, go click on the name with the thing and start reading. Go on.

You don’t have to be celebrating the Independence of the greatest country the world has ever known to enjoy the circumstances, why heck, you could even be a subject of the Queen. Your shackles should not impede your ability to read, as long as the despotic regime you live under hasn’t yet banned reading completely.

Are you absolutely sure?

.

reason

.

What if there wasn’t though? Any reason that is. That would be weird.

Maybe it’s like that song ‘Short People’, how it says they got no reason, and maybe ‘short people’ are really everyone no matter their size. But why Randy Newman (that’s who wrote the song ‘Short People’) would feel the need to obscure that the song is about everyone having, as he puts it, “NO reason”, I cannot say exactly. I’m not sure that he had a reason, I guess if he thought about it he could remember if he did, though, he wrote the song a while back, so, it might be impossible for him to recall if he had any reason (at all). Maybe I’ll write and ask him.

The Forgotten History

of

Box Tied With String

.

My memory is damn good, but I was there, boots on the ground when the balloon went up. Anyway, never mind that, the title of this post, if you didn’t know, or you’re a foreigner, comes from Abraham Lincoln, also known as Honest Abe, The Rail-Splitter, Uncle Abe, The Great Emancipator, and so forth, and so on, and yada yada, and yadda yadda, etc., etcetera ....forever and ever. Don’t get me wrong, I like the guy, he freed the slaves for God’s sake, or Christ’s, or yours, or mine, or, does it matter? I’m just quoting the poets like…, wait a minute, quoting the poets! That’s good, I like that, quote the poets, oh, yeah, I don’t know why I, me, that is, did not think of this earlier, maybe someone else has, hold on…no, no it does not seem as if anyone else has…, so, later, when I am asked, and I will be asked, believe you me, “What are you doing”? I will answer, “Just quoting the poets”. Ha ha. That’s good. Like, OK, like, let’s say you, you see a pal of yours just screwing around, you know, doing what to all appearances looks suspiciously like jack shit, well, you could then say to them, “Hey, quit quoting the poets, and get back to work”! Ha! That’s funny. Ha, ha! What? You don’t think it’s funny? Oh, yeah? Why don’t you go quote the poets! Ha, ha, ha, ha, what a total burn!!

The Forgotten History

of

Box Tied With String

.

There was a contest of some sort. I know that. Contestants had to do something, but I have no recollection of what, wait, I think they had to leave a comment explaining how Box Tied With String changed their life, yes, that’s it, and then, then I, quite arbitrarily I’m sure, picked first, second, and third place winners who were then sent hand made postcards like the one you see here. Boy, was that ever fun. Box Tied With String really made a difference in people’s lives. That’s for sure.
