Mopery

... in memory of Ogden Nash

"Go Away!" and "Let me sleep!"
"You Dunderhead! You dope!
"I will not go to work today.
I'll stay abed and mope!"

"I won't call in -
I'll tell no one -
I mope and moan
'til the day is done!"

    My head in my pillow -
    my sheet pulled tight -
    to tickle my feet
    is to imperil your life!

"I feel rotten and tired
my soul needs a purge
turn and leave
and say not a word!"

"Bring no cold bucket!
Nor flaming hot tongs
No bumping bass!
Or loud country songs!"

    My head in my pillow -
    my sheet pulled tight -
    it's wrong to wake me
    even if it's not night!

"I'll dream the dreams
of an unhappy man -
of gloom and doom
and I'll mope while I can."

"I want to wallow
in morbidity black
and snore resounding
flat on my back!"

    My head on my pillow
    my blanket around
    I'll mope, bitch, and moan
    in slumber profound.

"Who are you
to cheer me up?
Let me drink to the dregs
my morbid cup!"

"In my mopery black
I want to wallow
and snore in a place
where none can follow!"

    My face in my pillow
    my sheet o'er my head
    splash me with water
    and you'll wind up dead!

"Gloom, despair, and
anguish has appeal
I want to think on bad things
and let my thoughts unreel."

"If you haven't guessed it
yet you dunderheaded dope
I'm in a really bad mood
just let me sleep and mope!"

    My face in my pillow
    my blanket awry
    don't peek in
    you'll regret the sight.

My face in my pillow
my ass to the wind
leave me alone
and prove you're my friend.

    It is my sad duty to report that my Brother Bob passed away from a heart attack on 1/31/13. I know he had many followers on Live Journal. I thought…

  • I spoke to Lutron today

    I spoke to lutron today. That would be the person, not the corporation. He was on his way to D & D. I haven't done that in more…

  • Another day another dollar. I need a rate increase.

    I have been cat-waxing all day. I really need to write some more on my NaNoWriMo novel. It is a take off on Laurell K. Hamilton's Anita Blake…
