a way to explore thoughts, usually first thing in the morning.

three may

i do so enjoy
the thought of delivering
witty & memorable smackdowns
to the nasty, self-indulgent
anklebiters of my world,
the small-minded, self-indulgent
champions of their own opinions
who do nothing but declare
how righteous their own decisions
would be
they were the ones in charge.
clearly such people deserve
to be put in their place
with my pithy & barbed words.
but somehow,
and quite unpleasantly,
the idea has been jabbed
into my brain
that i should first deliver 
my verbal acts of justice
into a mirror
that before i unleash
on those who so clearly deserve
such pummeling;
and that thought
leaves my voice
and my words
