That Touch of Punk Rock Euphoria

Heather has a Bachelor's Degree in English from Moravian College and has been freelance writing for more than 13 years.

Perceived as a rebel with next to no cause

For any type of optimism to speak of

A combined live action version of Eeyore and Piglet

Change in the weather brought on a new creation

Put away the holier than thou stockings and black nail polish

Right fist still hanging in the air as a rebellious reminder

Took a chance with a new door-to-door salesman

Brought a special treat that was meant to be private

Embraced the exclusive risk that initially went down

With some semblance of residual resistance

Wired to the back teeth after a snippet of a Bolivian substitute

After an extended cuddle on the black leather ottoman

Along with Doris Day's cinematic premiere mink for kicks

Woke up this morning with an unusual level of cheer

Mixed with a mild summer sinus congestion

A new spring in the usually downtrodden

Familiar white, blue and grey Avia sneakers

Discovered a unique kind of rhythm method

That would make Gene Kelly and Fred Astaire proud

Also with a pinch of old school dancer jealousy

Walked around the office with a cartoonish Cheshire Cat grin

An internal thermostat that bounces from hot to cold

Faster than any arcade pinball machine ever could

A body full of Banker's Club vodka and low impulse control

Ready to rip off the proverbial Band-Aid and cut loose

Time to "Rock the Casbah" and throw public perception out forever

Consequences be reasonably ignored; for now.
