Absurd: Sunday Scribblings

Absurd? Sunday Scribblings wants absurd?

Dr. Seuss creatures and rat dogs in sweaters
Weird platypuses and IRS letters
Talent shows that let everyone sing
These are a few of the most absurd things

Mad little boys and their 10-year-old sisters
Pepsi One or Coke Zero and the game Twister
Saying the chicken is buffalo wings
These are a few of the most absurd things

Anonymous comments and trolls on the Net
Sub-prime lending and foreclosed homes to let
At my computer working on rhyming
These are a few of the most absurd things

When the kids fight
When the neighbor drums
When a dog's in a purse
I simply remember the most absurd things
And then I feel even worse



*My apologies to the Sound of Music's Maria.

I like the way your mind works. I might say that the rhyming did NOT make me sad. Life without absurdities would be...dull? Yes I think so.

Except Perry the Platypus. He's not weird. He's awesome (and he fights crime).
