    My brain is as foggy as London town.
    I got up, but my brain shut down.

    I picked up a paper, and I said,
    "Now don't lose this." Then my brain went dead.

    I got on a freeway. It was the wrong one.
    So now my trip had become a long one.

    Made a list, but of course couldn't find it.
    Told myself: Oh, I don't mind it. (Liar)

    Here's my shoe. Now where's its mate?
    And where, good grief, is my partial plate?

    And where are my keys? And those library books?
    Thank goodness I've kept my stunning good looks.

    How appropriate! Did this just come to you or have you been drinking?

    I always wonder about the creative process...

    Of course, we always wonder about you!

    Very good, thanks,

    Thanks for the kind words. No, I hadn't been drinking, FindMind. But they say some poets like Coleridge used cocaine to stimulate his imagination.

    Wouldn't work for me. Two drinks and I'd be asleep. Anyway I wrote the verse because someone (Greenbean?) started a post and requested verses. For some reason the post vanished after a few hours.

    Thank you, GG. Always nice to be appreciated. Do you coin that "levity/brevity" line yourself?

    Carla, happy to hear your hand is better. Your country living post reminded me of visiting my Uncle's farm when I was a kid.

    Excellent verse, my dear Rockgor.
    I truly hope you'll write some more.

    Is your brain as foggy as west LA;
    at the coast on the Pacific Highway?

    Were you meaning to drive to Reseda,
    but ended up in Pasadena?

    Was the list you made for the Burbank Wal-Mart?
    or for library books on modern art?

    Check the freezer for your missing shoe.
    Your partial plate? I haven't a clue.

    Your keys and books are in the car.
    Everything else? It can't be far.

    I hope your fog clears, anyway,
    like Catalina Island on a windy day.

    Well done rockgor,
    Please write some more!
    You're doing well
    with a scrambled braincell

    (glad you kept your stunning good looks - think mine's with your missing shoe)

    I admire those who are adept with verse...


    I'm NOT a poet
    & don't I know it!

    How nice that we have other light versifiers here.

    Ken, I'm impressed w/ your knowledge of LA's geography. Been here?

    As I said above, there was a poem/verse thread but it quickly evaporated. Don't know if we have enuff people to keep one going or not.

    Whaddya think?

    continuing the three blind mice tune:

    We're all so silly
    our brains are willy nilly

    We can't find our way
    we don't know the words to say

    so we keep on trying and every day
    we try to remember what to say
    and even though we may lose our way,

    We're still so silly
    brains are willy-nilly

    (laughter is good for the soul and body)

    I've got one uncle in Pasadena and another in Santa Monica. I've also got cousins in Northridge and one somewhere west of Oxnard.

    I've been to LA a number of times, visiting these relatives and doing the tourist thing. My last trip to LA was a road trip in 2002 from Albuquerque with my father, who had driven from Minnesota.

    I find LA fascinating. I read an interesting book about Beverly Hills not too long ago, by David Weddle (can't remember the title, though).

    I saw the poetry thread the other day, but my mind was completely blank; I couldn't think of a single couplet.

    I would be up for keeping a poetry thread going, though.

    kind words, folks.

    Let's have some more silly verses.

    Rap?! Do they have rap in Australia, Wamps?

    It's everywhere, it's everywhere...

    more than one of our local Mexican restaurants shows music videos in spanish as the staff are mostly in early 20s...

    so it is mostly rap, whether from Peru, Mexico, wherever... have seen rap on Link TV in other languages as well. But all the movements, poses, etc. are identical... amazing how much influence US exerts.

    The Brain Fog Song

    To the tune of “Oh What a Beautiful Morning”:

    There’s a cold, dank, gray fog on my brain cells,
    There’s a cold, dank, gray fog on my brain cells,
    The synapses struggle, the neurons do too,
    But for all of their efforts, I haven‘t a clue.

    Oh what a frustrating morning,
    Oh what a frustrating day,
    I’ve got a frustrated feeling,
    I wasn’t always this way.
