Gray Days

Folder: 
Vintage Words

 

The mirror captures the profile

perfectly. Today there are exactly

three more gray hairs on

the President's head.

.

Heavy crown day. Sleep is for

sleepers. Shhhhh. Do not think

out loud, a solution may be uttered

and no one is listening. Give in 

and be hated. Stand firm and be

hated.

.

Gray is the middle color, vascillating

between sanity and poverty. My rent

is due and will be next month too.

Brother, can you spare me a few

thousand dollars? Drunks on a high

wire means there will be a fall

eventually. Tilt, catch, balance, adjust,

tilt, tilt. Wheeee!

True Lady A style. Love when

True Lady A style. Love when you turn disaster into stark blazing, gut rumbling....TRUTH!!! Because you do it with just the right touch of sarcastic humour. 

 

Hope is a virtue. I hope for the best outcome in this.

"No", she replied, "but I have experienced it. "

I Love Sarcasm As A Posture

True, we will survive this, we have survived far worse natural disasters, this one is manufactured to get attention and to do harm as if party war is a thing to substitute for statecraft. It makes me wonder what we are not being told. Our economy's foundation as solution is a ponzi scheme. I think of dominoes when I watch the news. Sarcasm - reality demands it betimes. Hope is like trust - good if it happens, same o, if it does not. - Be well & hugz ~Lady A~

Thank You For The Read Bish

I haven't ranted in a while, thought this was the time since it affects everyone alive on the globe. The question is for how long. The Republican Party will do anything to blame the Democatic Party for the sure to follow "slow-down" of the economy. It's political and they play with people's lives. I don't want to feel just yet. it's just sad. ~lady a~
