The Do Or Die Not Gonna Fly!


 Done and go.
Go and done.
That we know.
That beats none.

None to beat.
None to claim.
Oh, how sweet.
Oh, how tame.

Or maybe not.
That mind goes.
Adds to the plot.
Adds to the woes.

Around we go.
Around and through.
A brand new show.
A brand new view.

Not that new.
Not that old.
It's got you.
You've been told.

Mind to matter.
Matter to mind.
Up on a platter.
Struck with a bind.

Given and taken.
Taken and took.
Can't go a flakin.
Need that there book.

Miss a bit.
Miss a lot.
That's some shit.
It's not so hot.

The do is done.
The die is here.
I can't have fun.
I can't have cheer.

Note the middle.
It was lost.
Hey diddle diddle.
You got bossed.

Ever listen to those voices in your head? The ones that cause you dread? They go all do or die. Guess what? Miss a day, death most likely won't fly. Do and try. That can fly. Will get it done and have fun. Unless fun is jumping in front of a train. Then you may need that brain pain. It will keep you from becoming a flattened mass. Trust me, not much do or die with writing near my little rhyming ass.

Later all, have a nice fall.

  2. The Do Or Die Not Gonna Fly!
    Many will often have a try
    Voices one hears
    Not at the ears
    In the head that sound dry

  16. Around we go
    because we love to show
    how smart we be
    at our sea
    except for those
    who don't knows
    how to talk or write
    cause they ain't bright
    that's why they play
    in litter boxes all day.

    1. And those so blind
      They think they're one of a kind
      Stuck with no sight
      Dim in the light
      Then they tramp in dog poop
      Thrown for a loop
      Down granny goes
      Poop in her toes

  18. Do or die doesn't work for me, either, when it comes to writing. If I write, great! If not... who cares? (Is that blasphemy...?)

    1. Nah, the more we write and learn and get into it
      The more that makes sense as here we sit
      For the world won't end
      If our writing schedule we amend

  19. This was a comforting post today, Pat! It's true, most things don't kill you. Terry was telling me today, though, that people have died trying to take selfies of themselves with an oncoming train behind them. Duh! The older I get, the more important fun becomes. Take care!

  20. I do hear voices in my head.
    Usually when I go to bed.
    By morning I've forgot what they said.
    Couldn't have been important.

  24. You're blog is beautiful and such fun. You're comments and commenters are as entertaining as your poetry. Awesome job with it.

    When doubt sings, wing it.
    It's just one of those things.

    Happy IWSG Day!
