Earth Day Edition...
Earth Alert RF-16:
Progress always comes too late.
One chap had spent a goodly portion of his life reading about,
and hanging around the edges of activities such as this,
finally had his own day of reckoning, and he loudly announced,
“The reason this kinda stuff seems so vague and hard to describe
is quite simple – it doesn’t actually exist.”
I heard tell of this one old chap so rich,
(and nervous, I presume),
that he kept a whole other brain on retainer –
just in case!
I heard this one man say that now that he was almost the kinda guy he always
dreamed of being, that he’d about stopped dreaming. (He added that this was
not actually as strange as it sounds, even to him.)
On this one planet, where on alternate days everything was either
real and simple, or
allegorical and complex,
an unknown doctor at their medical convention
introduced a proposal for the organization to privately commend,
“Human Speech As Medicine’s Supreme Ally.”
He supported his idea by saying, “If man could not
speak we could not diagnosis our patients’ ills.”
Some agreed with this and some did not, so he pressed on by noting,
“If we could not talk our patients could not tell
us what their problems are.” There was more discussion, and some still agreed and some did not, so the doctor added this, “If man did not have speech, billing would be impossible,” and there was no more discussion.
There is a special place on Earth.
The place cannot be adequately described by anyone,
other than to say this:
The place is somewhere other than where
the thoughts in your head
talk to you about it.
