do you ever have the feeling

that your life is a tragic illusion

and no matter what the value of your contribution

you will never get attribution

and the band plays on

but you can’t remember the words to the song

because your short term memory is gone

so you fake it and merely hum along

and no one seems to notice

here in the land of the lotus

that the edge will soon give way

and the middle will succumb into the land of the dumb


pardon the intrusions

we hate to shatter your illusion

welcome to the

state of confusion

One response to “STATE OF CONFUSION

  1. I guess we are neighbo(u)rs, what with living in the same state and all.
    This is Wednesday, and the “Coffee, Tea or Me” is an incessant call.
    It’s not that I need the Trip, nor really the Sip.
    It’s just that I need to get out of these walls.

    How about you, Ol’ Soldieroo?
    It’s just after Eight.
    Do you wanna too?

    Write Soonest,
