STONER LOGIC

 

Stoner logic

dictates

that I try

to create verse

 

when the muse

is asleep

and the little mice

have free rein

to scavenge my thoughts

 

so a few good crumbs

get pilfered in the deal

and I am left 

with the chewed at remains

 

but the metaphors are twisted

and I find the effort

at allegory stifling

 

Rebuked by laziness; the inertia becomes

my registered trademark

and the copyright

is vehemently protected

 

I get nothing done

but I manage

to get in my buzz

 

and the music

continues to rock and soul

and I just let it pass

 

but not everybody 

is sold on that persona

and they insist

I jot these lines down

 

And so for those

I dedicate these stanzas

and only hope they’re not

too bitterly disappointed.

This is one fine bit of writing - slc
