Sums It Up…..


It might seem strange

but this is true

I have no thoughts

to offer you

It seems to me

so hard to find

a single idea

in my mind

Maybe last night

someone came

and scurried off

with my brain

if you see them

please let me know

‘Cos I’m trying hard

not to let it show

So? Do I need one?

let me ponder

as my brain

goes on it’s wander

Two and two

does that make….  5?

‘tis near enough

maybe I’ll survive…..!!

  1. You read my mind:-) thats totally true and I am still on holidays…
    hope I can add up 2 + 2=4 by this weekend. Thank you for visits.


  2. Hi hun! 🙂

    I don’t usually get a hangover with JD – wine, yes, every time – so I was OK, but JD is an expensive drink so I usually buy Clark’s 1866 bourbon and enjoy a bottle that lasts a few days as I drink for the taste, not the effect, so I stop after a couple of glasses!

    I used to be a Rocker and a heavy drinker, but these days I’m more sedate!

    I don’t watch a lot of TV – I prefer Mr Basil Rathbone’s portrayal of the Character, but I guess that’s because I had good memories of living with my grandparents on the farm, the only place I was ever safe!

    Hmmm… OK – Consider this curve ball: Pat and Neil have been fighting again and Pat had to spend some time in bed with a ‘water infection’.

    Here’s hoping no bruises were involved…

    No more alcohol for me now hun – I’m kind of sedate these days! 🙂

    Love and squishy hugs!



    • Hmm, a water infection eh?.. sounds like ‘heavy’ water to me.. ..
      thanks for dropping by, Sir Prenin, I’ll be over your way soon..just trying to compose a little poem…which keeps fighting back!! xx


  3. Can’t wait for the new poem – I have writers block at the moment!!! 🙂

    God Bless!



  4. Hi Pen! 🙂

    Yes, I’m feeling much better! 🙂

    I’m with you on the milk – I buy 10 litres of UHT milk in case the weather or a bad episode means I can’t go shopping.

    I’ve enjoyed my racing, but I love chatting with everyone on WordPress – you are all the highlight of my day!!! 🙂

    I have my lottery ticket and my dream – let’s hope we BOTH win!!! LoL!!!

    Love and squishy hugs!

    • thanks Andro,

      and are hopefully having a great Wednesday too…xx (I always try to be good, as I know that I should *cough* )


  6. Did you write this with me in mind? My brain isn’t working as fast these days as it usually does. It can be quite scary and nerve wracking to be talking to a co-worker and suddenly can’t remember their name. Yeah, I have had my share of brain farts lately. In fact I had a couple this afternoon…. almost blew my ball cap off. 🙂


  7. Hi Pen.
    Just adding my name to the long list of people who enjoyed this post.
    If we could only find this magical place that all our brains seem to wander off to on a regular basis. It could either be the most wonderful place in the world or the most scariest.
    Great post.


  8. Five it is…. 😉
    Love this one,
    Thanks Pen!


  9. I smiled all the way through this poem – it’s got such great humour in it and a fantastic flow 😀

    And, as for the maths…well, that’s my kind of answer with or without a brain! lol
