The Machines Mock Us!
By BR Chitwood
Look at us!
Laptops on our Laps!
A toy for the Ages! Seeing the world turn at different and troubling angles.
In Love with the Magic!
So, what the hell, listen to this nonsense:
“Don’t fool around, Honey! I’m busy here!”
“You promised me a dinner out, Charlie!”
“No ‘dinner out’ – I’m in the middle of my intro to, Acres to Roam.”
“What did you just whisper, Sadie: ‘Dumbest book’? Don’t piss me off, Sadie, I’m on a ‘roll’ here.”
“Okay, ‘two-syllable wonder’, roll on. I’m outta here.”
“Yeah, sleep well, Sadie…I could be up all night with this intro…”
“Take as long as you want, Charlie…see you later.”
A door slams shut, but Charlie hardly notices…
So, a scene slightly sad and subjective, but, from the daily news reports and Newspaper bylines, it does appear we are in some new social territories in our ‘once’ freedom-loving country. Some of us have serious doubts about the paths we are travelling in our democracy, doubts about leadership and ‘control factors’, refugees flooding across our southern border, riots, homicides, chaotic madness interrupting our police and just a general miasmic feeling that our country is nearing some sort of negative end.
No interest here in playing ‘blame games’ – there is likely enough to filter through all political groups and tag-alongs.
Here in my humble abode, I play my own psychiatrist and patient…it just helps to write a few lines and have a system cleaning, at least, as far as it will go.
Does it work?
Maybe, for just a few moments.
A ‘hot toddy’ is much better…made with ‘Maker’s Mark’, of course
