Mary suggested examining how we are connected with families, friends and others (that would take forever) or the myriad ways people connect with one another in the 21st or any previous century.
The options and opportunities are almost endless.
I read what Mary had to say, and decided it all sounded entirely too overwhelming for my stuffed-up head to take in, never mind to give out in the form of poetry.
However, as happens with my brain altogether too often, and never with my permission or my conscious participation, the first two lines of the following nonsense leapt into my mind (unbidden, as I said).
So I had to run with it (more like crawl with it, thanks to my general achiness) and you can comment or not, as you like.
Meanwhile (and I've already explained this to Mary) I may not be able to comment on others' submissions atallatall because this bit of doggerel took today's entire ration of strength and left me panting, wheezing, and yearning for a nap.
Soon, friends and fellow Toads...soon I'll be commenting, and then you'll be
Are We Missing Something?
is there a connection ’tween ark and dark?
or twill and will and billing?
how many fens can you buy for a pfennig?
(assuming the seller is willing)
what about human and humane?
well, that one should be easy,
but is it? I think not, sometimes not at all
when easy and breezy’s just sleazy
