A TALE FULL OF SOUND AND HURRY

SOUND THINKING

Rhyme is passe and trite —
I never choose it….
Except for when I write
Poems that use it.

BEMUSED, BOTHERED AND BEWILDERED

Time doth pass in flight
So fast, I think I’ll lose it….
Except for when I write,
And, lost in thought, bemuse it.

    In anticipation of someone pointing out that the unabridged sentence of my title from Shakespeare’s Macbeth is “It is a tale Told by an idiot, full of sound and fury, Signifying nothing.”: mistermuse denies that he’s an idiot (he’s just somewhat unbalanced).

    I had a really funny comment but then… I lost my thought but what of it. I guess it went cold. I agree. Perhaps you should laugh. But the laughs on me. I guess Bewitched Bothered and Bewildered am I.

    I appreciate your Hart-felt comment, Don (for the benefit of the musically Hart-less, Don’s comment borrowed lyrics from BEWITCHED, BOTHERED AND BEWILDERED, one of Lorenz Hart’s hit songs in PAL JOEY (1940).

    Mick Jagger once sang “Time is on my side.” Wonder if he still thinks that way?

    Mick also sang “Time Waits For No One”:

    But I prefer this one (same title, different song, written 30 years or so earlier):
