The Mag - 23 Mar 2014

Have you ever imagined yourself held captive by your own lazy-elf? 

How could our very own existence ever evolved into a world of, "I don't care?" and "Just one more scotch please?"

Well, our theme photo is asking just that for our magpie today.  Thank you Tess Kincaid, at Magpie Tales.  


Safeness in Confusion

The mind's distress is our body's disarray.

Halfway through this muddled mess

Impress and tidiness, not our nature.

Nurture our motion you say from disarray.


Array within our mistress of confusion


make your darn bed,
 put away your junk
and do it today!

Ah yes, much better wouldn't you say?

Great first line!

"Yes, please" to the bottom room! This made me smile! :)

Ha ha! Yes, the second is much nicer (especially if it comes with maid service ; ) ) Thank you.

The final picture is much better. How can we persuade teenagers that it's the way to go? Witty piece!

Nice contrast!

Jinksy said...

That sounds like a plea from the heart at the poem's end!

I never make mine...

Helena said...

WoW! The last time I saw a suave bedroom like that we had to be out by 4pm as his missus got home at 5....!

Seriously though - a fabulous write, Karen, and a fabulous before and after comparison. Be an idea for me to bookmark this poem!!
