How does one value a fool?
Their measure of worth is not quite understood;
Irreplaceable on the world which they pace,
After all, only once will shine such a face;
Their importance cannot begin to be fathomed,
Such lofty purpose that it's lost even to its own;
So, before shouting another to be of such rot,
Consider first what a treat it must be in the lot!
A little something I thought up a while ago. It has been quite a while since I have done any kind of satire, but, rest assured, it can be done.

I don't know if it was your intention, but I found this poem amusing. I really enjoyed reading it and, at the end, it brought a smile to my face. You can turn any subject into a creative masterpiece.

:) It was intended, i just have not written anything quite like that in a while. I'm not good at expressing appreciation for gratitude, so i'll just :hug:. Though i'm glad that the satirical side isn't gone.

There is a part of me that would not deny this and another part which sees that there is potential for greater and that to say this is mere foolishness. Although that comment does a good job illustrating the first.
Notice the category is satire. The lines were written with bitter sarcasm and satire rather than sympathy and justification. Just an (un)friendly little reminder.

Hehe, I know it's a satire, you said so in your discription as well, and I love satires. My comment was satirical as well... Maybe :paranoid:.

I'm tired then...
And sure it was, i have absolutely 100% no doubt of that (What? Nothing. To which does this refer though?) :crazy:

I sit here innocently and type this. Or do I?

Pretty good. I'm kind of in one of those periods of trying to focus on too many things or, rather, not giving enough attention to anything (except poetry).
I guess some tension has been lifted or reduced, because mood swings seem to be occuring less frequently for the moment. Otherwise, i'm enjoying summer and its fading. I wonder whether i am letting anything close. At a party or whatever with the whole family i felt somewhat false because I can't tell if anyone really knows who i am. Then again, that's a perk of being detached from the world.

In other words, i can't and would not want to complain and recently i have grown closer to my mother. The proverbial bond has really been strengthened over the past few months or so. It is to the point where i am comfortable talking to her about anything. This support has probably helped lift something of stress or whatnot.

Enough of my ramble. How about you?

See? That's what I like about you. You always answer thoughtfully and with emotion!
I am doing well, I have moved this summer. It's going okay except the heat...blech. LOL
I'm glad things are going well for you!
