Maladjusted

Maladjusted

A Chapter by Dave Brown
"

mal-adjust-ed

"

  Bent and rusted

  Worn

           and

                  weary

A lifetime finished

  Can no longer be

                Trusted

No gription

                 No grab

 The whole thing is

                  Busted

   And can’t be even

    Slightly adjusted

We are talking here about either a 1965 Volkswagen or an aging human body. I think the latter is the more likely candidate. This sucker has really shot his bolt. Can't be readjusted even slightly. Worse, he's even lost his gription. I would probably be even more appalled if I knew what gription is. Don't spring these Canadian words on me, Dave.

LOL sometimes a bad footing just has to break before the train runs us over I keep a can of WD40 around for just such disasters (taste awful) but you don't notice the pain as much after a good swig:/

Disagreeing with Ana Papaya . . . she's not old enuf to know how it feels when we become set in our ways, rigid, unwilling to change & everything novel is subject to suspicion. After all those years of "adjusting" (adapting, conforming) . . . it's a celebration of our long difficult years on this planet when we can finally be maladjusted without apology & feeling no inclination to do anything differently just becuz others guilt-trip us into thinking we need to adjust! (((HUGS))) Fondly, Margie
