Nonsense (Poetry)

The nonsense that is in my head

Won't do you any harm,

The things that I neglect to say

Should cause you no alarm.

My thoughts meander recklessly,

Mindful banter fecklessly

Just going on inside of me,

Despite my outer calm!


Don't tell me what to think or feel,

My mind is not made up!

The decision making in my head

Will not come quick enough!

Words are muddled, yesterday

Should be tomorrow, any day!

But not right now, it's true to say

That one day I may stop!


I could explain it better

But you'd have no work to do,

If you really wish to know me

Then confusion must ensue!

Logically my reasoning

Will pepper salt with seasoning

And while my hearts emotions sing

My head is laughing too!

      Salt and pepper laughter has got me hot on the trail

      Of some merry song and all I could come up with

      Is a song of sane and earthy joy

      A laugh with life rather than at it

      Love the merriment of your take… and mine is

      A laughing solid soul with benefits

      This is awesome! It reads with the sing-songy brilliance of Dr. Seuss. I had fun reading this poem. Kudos to you, Jennifer!
