Stroke of Genius

Stroke of Genius

A Poem by John Stussy
"

I seriously am mentally aroused. :D

"

 


It’s completely amazing,

This intoxicating

Mental feeling

Of the cogs in my brain

Spinning and turning.

Shall I paint a masterpiece?

Or maybe compose a ballet.

What the hell,

I’ll choreograph it as well.

What if I take it upon myself

To try to find a cure for cancer?

Even a way to end world hunger?

Oh what, dear God what

Should I do with my burst of ingenuity?

Ah yes! I know!

I will draw up a political plan

To pull America back onto its feet.

Mayhap I shall diminish the crime rate

By ninety percent!

Or what if I start a business?

I can become a CEO

And make millions in minutes to blow away.

Might I make an attempt

To design a new engine,

One that puts even Galt’s to the test?

Hmmm. Maybe I can even

Map out the stars…

The stars!! I remember! This is brilliant Sir Stussy, I think that you should aspire for it all, I know you can do it, haha, this is well evident. In all you do, I would that you'd never forsake poetry, for in it you share who you are with the rest of us who want to find out.
this is a great poem, Made me want to go out and make/build something....or return to my blueprints for my munitions cache in Ghana. World Dictator must start somewheres, yes? haha, great work, awesome one!

It's all there , John - and don't let anyone tell you it's unattainable either!! Try it all out - pick what feeds your soul, your heart and your mind - and go for it with all you've got - the last line holds the answer and the key - always shoot for the stars - even if they seem perpectually out of reach - for the journey is worth way more than the destination someone once said - and it holds true. excellent write my friend.

This is actually a very good piece here, excellent in fact.
I really enjoyed it.

For starters, check out fairtax.org and find inspiration there.... what a nation we would be. Run with that and I'd vote you into office, give you drafting paper, build a theatre for you to cast your play and give you pencils to draw up your engine and even a ship to take your ideas to take your food to the hungry around the world......

Well done!!!
