Dopey Minds Just Monkeying Around: A Satirical Poem

Val enjoys writing his own style of what resembles poetry, just hoping to catch someone's heart on the same page.


In the mighty realm of our mind

every thought counts as a cause

if thoughts were easy to rewind

we'd see why life is full of flaws.

With our mind monkeying around

wishing and doubting at same time

nothing takes root in fertile ground

so far from anything looking sublime.

In the likes of some pinball machine

our mind is rarely moving in any order

thoughts randomly bouncing off each pin

enclosed within a narrow frame as a border.

So many clouded by smoke of dope

and others dulled by their daily booze

as if they are feeling at end of their rope

with wasted mind what's more there to lose.

Reluctant between love and fear

far below the threshold of our sight

feeling most secure in its parking gear

not slightly aware of its tremendous might.
