I find myself today bereft of time
The words refuse to respond to my call
Much as I would prefer to make this rhyme
I fear I've set myself up for a fall

The trick'ry I've employed to hide this verse
Has not fooled you (because you're reading this)
Kudos, my friend; though you may swear and curse
My composition will not disburse bliss

And so, I think that I should now foreswear
Continuation of this futile thing
I'll leave you now and offer up a prayer
Today's remainder better things will bring

      Not really, but: did you get the joke?

      • For a quick minute I was afraid I was back in the legal field where that phraseology is far too common (and annoying). 😊 The legal industry is well known for destroying trees.

          Blast. You responded too quickly, and now I’m unable to curate my previous comment appropriately. I agree: the legal profession excels at killing trees. And personally, I for one can’t abide THEIR LOVE OF ALL CAPITALS WHICH I’M SURE THEY EMPLOY BECAUSE THEY BELIEVE THAT IMPARTS MORE IMPORTANCE TO THE WORDS BUT THE REALITY IS THAT THEY’RE STUCK IN SOME KIND OF ARCHAIC ARCHIPELAGO AND CAN’T CHANGE…

    [Comment respectfully redacted, saving you the time.] You intentionally or not, dropped a think piece on me. I was, fresh from reviewing a work [an inappropriate word for it, but I am rushed this morning] by an eecummings wannabe and launched into an distasteful sarcastic comment. Forgive me, for I almost sinned. Hail Mary, full of grace…

  3. Hmm… How?

    My usual process – I see a post in my Reader, I open it on the author’s website, and view it that way. However, today, for some strange reason, I opened it in my Reader and was confused as to why it wasn’t blank. (Hehehe) THEN, I opened it here… and it was.

    Explain yourself.

  4. Oh, I’ve figured it out! Forgot that the Reader ignores all formatting.

  5. A sad story indeed!
    Sadly this story is going to be a real one.
    But then humans enjoy by crying while going through these sad stories based on emotions.
    They fail to realise that they have no more tears 😭 left to spill from their eyes because they are already dead.
    Lessons learnt – nil
    Moral of the story- no lessons to learnπŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚

    OMG. This is the post I always wanted to write. Can I copy you? (I imagine you will no be able to sue me for copyright infringement.)

      Of course you can copy me, Paco; mimicry is the sincerest form of flattery. (I do, however, wonder whether you fully grok the jest; I’d very much like to see your interpretation of a ‘blank page’…)

    You spin off mysteries from your fingertips, Pendantry. You are a mystical being full of light. (Or farts.)
