When in the course of temerity-tainted time-wasting human events it becomes imminently plausible, even mandatory, to respond with poise yet with appropriate tinges of vitriol to outlandish, extortionate criticisms of those less fortunate, one of the responsive persuasion verily shuffles up to the proverbial yet tangibly felt soapbox, grasps her/his respective, non-proverbial bootstraps by the proverbial short-hairs, gives them a resolute tug, and ushers forth impassioned streams of well-intentioned and determined expostulations which, by their very resolve-backed nature, are well suited to the occasion at hand and audience-at-large, however minuscule the orator may at that time be.

Let's just say you surf away
and often let the crap in
then one day your head of mutton
will foray to hit that button,
only to have nothing happen.

Voila! The gig’s up,
and you’d better get hacking
because you didn’t keep up
with the diligent backing.
At that point
as you sit in your joint
you’ll realize that something is lacking.

Congrats, brats – you’ll see that that’s
a sign that things went awry;
and that old hard drive
is no longer alive
Hah! Better luck tamari!

Thus when it goes capoot,
you can just hit MUTE.

When driving, just drive.
When arriving, simply arrive.
When thriving, though, share.
After all, lacking gall, it is only fair;
for as Mom once said, “don’t dare
enthrall in a wealth snare.”

At least that’s what some say
of plethora of those
which out in the fray
act as such ‘NGO’s’
who claim to do good
and some do, if you would
but others, well, nobody knows.

Talking heads will advise
oh, that bunch in Ukraine:
well, to no one’s surprise
they are causing some pain.

But to us on the couch
in zombie affectation
we hasten to slouch

Well, pardon the puerile piss outta me
if I bore you with this silly blurb:
man, (woman, too), that Jasmine Rose tea
was ever so mightily superb!

One thing we couldn’t help notice, Otis,
was that even when it was ‘cut’
with half straight green tea,
the delightful rose
and jasmine aroma
still kicked you in the butt;
it tickled both palate and nose, Homah;
best of all, we have a glut!

4 U C, one can never know
what the grate Davey

Funny, sometimes you need
to write the year down.
That’s what she said
with a slight bit ‘o dread.

I agreed
with a simmering frown.

So it wasn’t funny,
that said my Honey
as she flung lots of paper piles down.

I lamented those old receipts and invoices
when she chewed me out
‘oer my frivolous choices:
not placing the year
on those papers, I fear
was an error that certainly annoys us!

Of papers in question
could I make a suggestion
before the next shuffling foray?
Please add the year
and month, m’dear;
not just the week or day.

Today was the day in '91
that we remembered our cousin
who tried with great pains
to blow out his brains
but then lived 'oer the months
say, a dozen.

Why, pray (or don't) did he pick
this date of March 6th?
What could the reason have been?
He had a young cousin
'twas born on the 5th
but he had rarely seen him.

When we saw cousin S
he had languished, I guess
and was fitted with giant thick glasses;
as the staff at the home
didn't leave him alone
and sure didn't sit on their asses.

Now what could be said
of that RIP Ed?
He also had done himself in.
By picking this date
what were we to relate?
Oh, the feeling was dreadful as sin.

His voluminous writing
and querulous wit
were at most times so disarming;
but down deep within
was a simmering bin
that had led to his last-ditch self-harming.

Not a lot we can say
of that final E-day
when he gave up his dread last breath growl;
but he left us, it seems
all his scribbling in reams
which we'll read to the very last vowel.

The SHED said: “I AM.
And it WAS and IS.
Thence is SHED story told:

The P-man brought it to completion
for his garden tool accretion.

P framed it up and boxed it in;
press-board walls were mighty thin.

Later were some windows added,
but I'm not sure the floor was padded.

Perhaps P had some trepidation
about the addition of insulation.

I noted his progress whilst staying aloof;
near done, I guess, with P laying on roof.

A spectacle to watch, indeed,
while morning Joe enjoying;
I stayed away, as per the need
so as not to be annoying.

Yet Another Day In The Strife

Indeed this day started out okay
whilst looking like it would suck;
but instead of balls dropping
we commenced to get hopping
with 'stuff' on our minds
we unclenched our behinds
and actually had some good luck!

Then, with a slight bit 'o trepidation,
we hit the friggin' road:
Pavement white, turning back to brown;
not contrite – they are layin' it down!
Thus on our autos CaCl2 will stick,
but it is far better than an ice slick!
Our daily salt, it is not their fault,
we will rust all the way to town!

King George On That Date

George was pictured crisp and pressed
in rolled up sleeves, he looked his best.
Posed for that shot so sharply dressed
at Heritage's droll behest.

The image would go on a calendar, see?
And fair George would ultimately
show his mug so verily
and flaunt his power frequently.

I wondered as he signed those bills
sundered pens with sharpened quills
he oversaw some drubbing drills
and parsed his words to radio shills.

Yes, Heritage was a foundation
that captured George's imagination.
He zapped them info 'oer the wire
hoping, lo, to preach to the choir!

But For Us

But for us, the average Schmoes
reading betwixt the lines;
we piss and cuss and scribble prose
whilst crooks set skew our spines.
Then, as now, as has ever been,
before the lens will retract,
we brood and scowl 'oer acid pen
at how it will all impact.

Look, you have no stinkin' choice
in how the history is written;
so best not raise your bellowin' voice
lest you be the one merely smitten.

Lay down those placards of protest
oh simmering, scowling fool;
this sh** won't change at your behest

Well, Bust My Green Jeans!

I have neither heard nor seen
a thing so absurd as “Asparagus Queen”.
But alas it did pass

How demented was this phenom?

Here's an example of any given extant Asparagus Queen's pertinence to our current situation:

Gravestone timber friggin' jack
disk clone, dog bone, digging back.
1,3,4, oh go and pee
and don't give any flak!

Asparagus roots, well, they're in cahoots
with those never errant farm workers;
passing some gas, pull it up by the roots,

Not waylaid, no tag, no hash.
In the shade with this radio trash!
Indeed, how many times
have I turned that thing on,
only to find this mind's
function thus gone?

Now that is a good question,
with no need to shout it;
but here's a suggestion:
do something about it!
Next time, oh rabble,
when you hear psychobabble,
rather than trying to tout it;
don't piss or scoff; hey, just turn it off,
then you've no need to reroute it!

For of a difference it makes not one whit,
so keep up resistance:

Thinking back to why they let Lehman fail:
my, oh my – someone lost their tail!
Here, man, paean to them I wail:

Sharpened pencil, at the tip
loss prehensile, sinking ship.
Glossy stencil, mortgage flip
Garnered when she'll have pursed lip

And then one dayI talked to Tom
to see how he had weathered
this bust-ass theft of greed and glom
to which he had been tethered.

He noted that he'd ridden out
this hellish nasty caper,
and also with a frown and pout
said “I still hold their paper.”

Seeing that Tom was not elated
Davey H commiserated.

Opined Andrew:
“Opinionated – it's such a bad feature;
you're desecrated, oh, gas-spewing creature!”

Moreover, he railed on, himself opinionated:

“Snow again in the forecast, my friend,
and it will be soon blowing in;
so you'd better get working
and cut out the shirking
lest the snow be on my foreskin!”

Thus ends yet another highly impolite expatiation of the Andymeister, whose exhortations have not previously been chronicled by the grate Davey H for 100 Words entries.
And as a point of reference, Andrew's streams of irreverent carbon dioxide emissions were rarely appreciated by the snowbound frozen munchkins of this place.

Scribblin' with wandering mind mined

China mine a giant Panda
You won't mind some propaganda.
And what a grand, uh, story it was!
Give 'em a hand-a just because.

But that story was a mere distraction
from the gory lion's action
whilst zookeepers' prompt bloody gaffe
did bring sure doom to young giraffe.

But then, as per this ever-wandering pen,
we scurry from that lion's den
plod and scribble here once again:

the distracted cat laid
down his hat

“Do not,” they say, “Mix fruit and grains.”
“Screw blot.” I bray; won't take great pains.
Because that mixin' is what it takes
Yum! Blueberries fixin' with hotcakes!

So lots of things are common knowledge,
with or without flings of college,
but it won't matter what you eat,
your endless patter incomplete
and no matter what you bleat
surely, adder, the clock will beat

The foregoing food philosophy was no doubt proffered by a neatnik who, in her/his scrupulous efforts to organize a hopelessly disorganized state of affairs in the outside world, attempted to paste such meticulousness on her/his innards.

Continued: the rail regarding college,
it should entail imparting knowledge.
But is that four years' recompense
a substitute for common sense?

This one should be oh, so clear;
so listen up, my fledgling dear:
We know 'foil wrap' as 'tin foil'
though it should be noted here:
it's actually made of aluminum, goil,
and has been for many a year!

A four year stay to thee I bray
should sharpen up your schnoz;
and grant you skills you'll use today
no shills, and just because:
You'll work and earn
that's a sure requirement
for funds to burn in your 'retirement'.

And yes, 'Bhikkhu' is a REAL word.
Venerable, that Bhikkhu Bodhi!

All that is will pass away

Blank Page Somewhat Untitled

Here's yet another blank space filled:
will it get first place? 'Oer that we’re thrilled!
We'll continue this pace thus having shilled

We're compelled to tell you that's
a standard practice in the flats
and from society's gaggle of brats

But what about turkeys, chickens and ducks?

They deserve better than rides in trucks

An obstinate spammer and Internet slammer
had discovered what hitting 'SEND' meant.
'Compose' did comprise
rancid prose we despise

But rather than hurt he

I saved some 'Spam Classics',

Like fat in pastrami well-marbled;
whilst in grammar so lax
and with wretched syntax,
they're a pastiche of nonsense that's garbled!

Or is it a bit more benign?

Of the PATH taken by the holiest, 'thus-gone' arahants, and particularly the SAMASAMBHUDDHAS, it was noted by a fellow modern-day householder that, contrary to erroneous, inexplicably popular belief, such aforementioned attainments, let alone the extremely difficult sacrifices and penances required to bring them about, would not be possible, because, in her words:
“you wouldn't want to.”
The PATH and FRUITS obtained

“I venerate and do not fake it;

Bad habits, detest

Thus putting the best to the test, we gorge;

And this George I just saw

dull pink gums in his craw

So under George

Got up, slurped a cup,

Didn’t go out, couldn’t go anywhere.
Yup, had to get up, had to go take a breather,
‘cause the book I was writing
that was NOT exciting
though pages were turning
not much was I learning.
It wouldn’t go anywhere either.

Things roll along, though, albeit not so greatly;
and we sing a fuel song
amid engine’s throb-throng,

Yeah, we’re doing okay, but not, say, “fine”;

And it is all we do.
To this one might object,

But one thing’s for sure, oh, and may I implore?
As the words rearrange,

for nothing will change

But talk if you will
