Lying

Post by creativesoul » September 11th, 2019, 3:41 pm

I am on a jury
Yes it’s all a big mystery
Cannot talk to me

I guess - I am thinking
That if I could have remembered
What the lie was or the one I used to cover up the other one
So I did not stop lying out of virtue

I was too stupid to lie

I wish I had sometimes
Trying to be good

I was still bad
Back to the courthouse
Applebee’s is the only place for miles around
Parking is a Bitch
reason is over rated, as is logic and common sense-i much prefer the passions of a crazy old woman, cats and dogs and jungle foliage- tropic rain-and a defined sense of who brings the stars up at night and the sun up in the morning---

Yes you gotta be be smart to lie.
Sometimes it takes several of them,
deployed in the right, timely sequence.
"Oh what a tangled web we weave"...
That old saying has a point..

On the other hand...
you could just go into politics,
get an office in Whopper City,
and lie your ass off.

I know
I am so happy to say that the young man that was living a lie with an older woman
Is quite happy tonight
Going to jail is not gonna happen for him
Yay I helped

I really need some pain relief
It’s 111 out and my body has had enough

I wish I could do some of the things many humans can do

got the summons once
Federal court, Concord NH..
Federal Court!
high profile murder?
racketeering?
(will I need to wear a bag over my head?)
espionage??
.

.
no
insurance litigation
defendant in one state
plaintiff in another
BO - RRING....
judge asks prospective jurors:
anyone of you ever work
for an insurance company?
*DING*
late 1970s
National Grange Mutual
on the carpet
more than once
for insubordination...
I raise my hand
step forward, he says
I tell my story
he smiles
thank you, he says
you may go
.
I'm not an outlier. I just haven't found my distribution yet.

You CAN do what many
humans can do, but that
might be a mixed blessing...

As always..

I'm sorry you're in pain. At least some cooler weather (should) be on the way pretty soon..
