George's Last Words ~~ A Pome


The note they found
Next to George's body
Said,
Simply,
They told me
That before killing myself
I should talk to someone.
Anyone.
I thought about it,
And there really wasn't
Anyone
I wanted to talk to.
Not even myself.
So here I am.

*  *  *  *  *

Well... I thought it was funny.

Thanks for your time.

    You have the strangest sense of humor, Silver.

  2. That's too bad, talking can be very helpful, and cheaper than therapy.

    Has anyone told you that you have a twisted sense of humor? :)

    1. Several people!

      Spider-man once said "Who needs a shrink, when a guy has himself to talk to? A guy who talks to himself, that's who!"

    2. Well, I've talked myself down from the ceiling on more than one occasion, but that's just me. I didn't remember that Spiderman was so profound. :)

    3. The line I quoted was from somewhere between 1973-1977, so don't feel bad for having missed it. :)

    1. And, possibly, one of those who was "lonely by choice," if I may (perhaps) coin a phrase?

    1. There's a difference between being lonely and merely being alone, of course...

    2. Of course...I seem to resonate well to both ;)

    1. I currently have no internet connection at home, Kris. That, plus a few other variables I won't bother getting into right now, has seriously curtailed all internet activity for the nonce.

  8. Well, my dear Silver, I can't believe I'm going to say this, but I think I'd actually prefer that silly Cream of Mushroom soup can on my sidebar to this dead man's arm. Tell me what I have to do to get you to post again. I'll do anything. I promise. Just name it. Yes, I'm that desperate. lol....

  9. Hey...I caught this one...hmmm...I do love cream of mushroom soup though...especially alone with an entire sleeve of crackers and a TON of black pepper... Hope your well, Fox!

  10. A "sleeve," huh Tasha? Maybe that's what George's arm needs!
