Connections: March 25.18

Face to the wind

I look ahead

goodbye to the old

now the new instead.

It’s a digital thing

unlike my old grand

a sign of the time

like the gnarl of my hand.

But I admit I’m befuddled

in this alien realm:

am I at a piano

or the Enterprise helm?

Character sketch

I will change you
re-arrange you
lift you up
to be like me
because I know
how you should be

your house isn’t right
your hair is a fright
your glasses out-moded
your clothing corroded
your life a mess
I come, Graymalkin!

I will save you from yourself
make you
cleaner
pressed
dressed
coiffed
in my image

How good of me
to enlighten you
righten you
tell you what your problem is.
What? I have a problem?
Boohooboohoo.
I thought you knew
how sensitive I am.
You’ve gone and
hurt my feelings.
Now you have to call me
patch things up
because I know
what your problem is
and
I will tell you.

I will kick you
when you’re down.

I owe this to you.
You’re welcome.
