Can’t you explain that one more time, but slower?
Look, I’m sorry, but I’m just not getting it.
Everything is just jumbled in my brainpan
And it is leaving me almost seasick as I navigate the morass
Really I got it the first time, but I just wanted to mess with you.
So smooth. The clear liquid hardly burned.
He knew this batch would sell well
It just meant dodging the Feds till he dropped off this batch
Not that he hadn’t done hundreds of times
Eventually, his luck would run out, but hopefully not before the still did
The phone was broken, but he was sick of buying new ones. He grabbed his screwdriver and contemplated how to attack the problem. It was probably beyond his ability, but he was damn good with a screwdriver. After drinking three of them it wasn’t fixed, but he didn’t care anymore.
So that proposal was due yesterday? I thought it was next week.
They told me next week. I’m sure of that.
Really, they’ve got to give us a second chance.
Everyone has days like this, Michael. I’m only human.
So what do you mean don’t bother coming to work on Monday?
So Michael, do you think I can get a reference letter hookup from you?
Bonus poem (1st draft) If you like this one better, let me know in the comments.
So that project proposal was due yesterday?
That’s right, so now our company’s existence is now in question.
Really? Why didn’t you tell me?
Everyone told you, daily. With voicemail AND email AND in person
So about that. I thought you were all being a bit pushy.
So about that, you’re fired.
The rubbish he was writing piled up around him
Rambling ideas clashing with the other balderdash
Any semblance to story was pure happenstance
So when he was just about to throw the refuse away
He stumbled onto what he was going to write.
Cool façade in place, she entered the bar
Raucous music assaulted her ears, but her eyes never waivered
Ahead was the bar, and he was at the end of it
Cozying up behind him, she inhaled his musk one last time before she struck
Killing him might have been extreme, but he deserved it
Everyone screamed, but they were drowned out by the music
Downing her pill, she joined him for eternity
When you burst through the cracks of society
Everyone thinks you need to be pruned back
Everything must go back to the “good old days”
Don’t let them tread on you. Grow strong and bloom. Let your beauty shine!
Motivation distilled into action
Obliterates sedimentary thoughts
Vitality flourishes throughout the workout
Even though the next day means you won’t want to …
Reach deep down inside of you when you feel dead
It’s there where you’re power resides
Set it loose upon your world
Everyone will fear your inner zombie
Undead and dangerous, you climb out of your energy grave
Pushing upright you shuffle off to find your brains
The desire from human contact
On the arm, shoulder, a full hug
Unties stress and allows us to feel like we belong
Critical to our wellbeing
