When Dr. Suess gets lost


The alluring Swishingphad
wishes and swishes into Xeerynbad
causing an 18 Szirj pile up
with an overturned Wyndstrup

“What the hell are you doing?!”
“Swishingpharism is only for the Flooing!”
cried the mucked up Wyndstrup
“You are not able to keep up!”

Oh fickle Swishingphad
leaving Xeerynbad fuming mad
rejects and abandons me
your fading sparkle is all I see

“Get out, get out you quagmapoo!”
“fluxing and muxing is all you do!”
in a panic, the Szirjes wail
“You are always doomed to fail!”

I don;t understand this poem, I am sorry to admit, but the conversation strikes a chord with me--upsetting!!! I love the art.

LOL. that's ok. I've been in a weird mood lately. it's inspired by the recent break-up of a 4 year relationship, but it ended out (to me, anyway) sounding like a social commentary on midlife dating. it might have been easier to say, "sex makes you stupid." the Szirjes and Wyndstrup are just voices in my head.

Thanks, Mary! the art was a photo of ripples in water that i edited in Gimp. in the original photo, i saw a face that looked like it was laughing at me,

I'm so sorry that you had a break-up. That's difficult!!! Can be very painful! :-(

Thanks for coming round to visit. Speaking of visiting, if yr in the area of Detroit, I ahve a place (at least for now) where you could stay a few days for free and visit with me and see Detroit. We may be bankrupt, but there's still lots of cool stuff to see here.

oooh, I would love to come visit!! unfortunately, I'm pretty broke, too. but, I'll keep working on a way to get up there. I have an aunt in Milwaukee, so it may happen one day. it would be so much fun to finally meet after all these years :D

Detroit, in spite of its bankruptcy, is a fun place to visit and I'd love to have you come.
