Connections: March 23.17

Did you ever have the feeling

that you were being watched?

That you’d best not sneak that pastry

or leave that crossword botched?

You can summon up its form

with secret incantation

and here’s the concrete proof

it’s not your imagination.

Thanks again to the S. W. Berg Photo Archives

and to the D.J. Berg Whimsy Archives.

Connections: October 31

2014-10 - 02 - Lit jack-o-lanternYou know these guys?

Sure you do!

They’re the comic team

watching you.

One is Conscience, the other, Time.

You can’t escape their mocking mime.

Close the window, pull the drape,

but they’re still there to grin and gape.

Morning, noon, and in the night,

they

relentless

ply their blight.

So what to do? How live ever after?

How endure their sadistic laughter?

How return their jibes with jeers?

Reach in the bowl for a Three Musketeers.

More thanks to the S.W. Berg Photo Archives curator, shown in the reflection, staring down the ghouls.
