the use of nature to fend off demons

Post by david » March 26th, 2015, 4:57 pm

i want to cut you up
for cutting me up
at the traffic lights

but anger management
kicks in
smiles all round

lesson 35
the next time you see a bee land
get down on one knee
and threaten to touch him
he will raise a foreleg to fend you off
slowly carefully shake it
like you shake the paw of a dog


lesson 36
take a magnifying glass
to an ant's head
instead of your boot
stare into its eyes
thank god he's not
pissed off at the world
and a thousand times the size

enjoyed this, david

I have this daughter and she's like frikkin Dr. Doolittle
she reads the minds of insects
in minute detail she understands tiny things
it's really cool
you made me think of her

thank you!

Very creative description of externally-assisted internal consciousness shift. Yeah, good.

I do like your lessons. Let us always remember.
