A Poem by M.E.Lyle

This is neither a poem nor a story. Perhaps it is simply a commentary.

in the not too distant future,
Long after I am gone,
        something will come along
                    that is neither hatched nor born (bourne)
What a dilemma will there be,
     Not knowing which public facilities to use.
Shall they go to the hatchling's, or the borner's?
                      Heads will be shaking, fingers Pointing
Haters hating, lovers loving, and all what-not going on till...
Somebody passes a law.
          A LAW?
                                 But, what sort of LAW?
     A law, that is a law for all, not just a few, but ALL.
Some will be mad, indeed.
 Some will be sad...agreed,
                But as for me, I...I will be freed,
Not to be sad,
         Not to be Mad, 
                          But to be glad
 Not to have to worry about hatchling, nor borners,

Author's Note

OK, I admit it, I've gone off my rocker. I know a nice little nursing home just down the road. Maybe I should pay it a visit.

Very different and unique. Thoughts pouring onto the pages and driving into crevices. Excellent...:)............

Love the format, appreciate the thoughts even if i don't wholly understand nor want to. You've laid a puzzle that not even lateral thinking gives me a solution!

' Heads will be shaking, fingers Pointing
Haters hating, lovers loving, and all what-not going on till... ~~~ Somebody passes a law... '

An alien.. a thought .. an alien thought; a dream.. a something.. a dreamy nothing .. a click of the fingers>?

Whose to know the future. If you can think of it, then, it will be. Some bright spark said that a few years ago and now man goes to the moon and dives deeper than cathedral spires in the oceans.

You haven't gone off your rocker.. noR got on one, you've created a thought that might or not fabricate itself into Something or Nothing. Sad you might not be here to see it... but then, who knows!
