AND NOW ANOTHER: HUMOROUS DEFINITION — (OR IS THAT):
ANOTHER DEFINITION OF THINGS APPARENTLY PERTINENT TO HUMOR (!?!):
SATIRE: A GAMBIT IN THE SEEKING OF APPROVAL
TO COMPENSATE FOR ONE’S LACK OF ORIGINALITY.
QUERY: WHAT IS THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN DEVOTION TO SOME ALREADY ESTABLISHED IDEAS, AND CRITICISM OF SAME? —
— OPERATIONALLY, NONE,
FOR IN NEITHER INSTANCE WERE YOU A CREATIVE FORCE.
As THEY LOOKED UP AT THE ALLEGED HERO THEY WERE ABOUT TO CRUCIFY, ONE CITIZEN SAID TO HIS NEIGHBOR: “I AM UNCERTAIN AS TO WHETHER I SHOULD BE IN SUPPORT OF THIS ACTION, OR CONDEMNING IT.”, AND HIS FRIEND REPLIED: “IT’S NO MATTER, TO THE LIKES OF US -WHAT IS TO BE PLAYED OUT, WILL BE PLAYED OUT. Now LET US GO HOME.”
THE CORE MYTH OF ONE CULT TELLS OF THE DAY A SPACE SHIP LANDED, AND FROM IT STEPPE’) A GROUP OF ALIENS WHO INTRODUCED THEMSELVES AS THE FIVE BLIND BOYS OF ALPHA BETA,
AND AS HE REACHED OUT TO SHAKE THEIR HAND IN WELCOME,
THE KING OF EARTH SAID: “AH, YOU SING GOSPEL MUSIC.”,
AND THE TALLEST OF THE FIVE REMOVED HIS SHADES AND REPLIED: “DON’T MIND IF I DO.”, AND BIT OFF THE MONARCH’S HEAD,
WHICH THE CULT MEMBERS SAY JUST GOES TO PROVE.
THOUGH THE MAJORITY SCOFF AT SPLINTER GROUPS AND FACTIONAL ACTIVITY, THEY MISS THE FACT THAT ALLEGIANCE TO ANY IDEA OR MOVEMENT,
(RELIGIOUS, NATIONALISTIC, OR OTHERWISE), NO MATTER HOW LARGE AND WIDELY RESPECTED, IS STILL A FORM OF CULTISM,
AMONG WOLVES,
THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN THE ACCEPTABLE HONORING OF A WISE, HEROIC LEADER, AND THE UNTOWARD DEVOTION TO SOME IRRATIONAL MAD DOG
IS IN THE NUMBER OF FOLLOWERS THE WOODS PROVIDES FOR EACH —
— AND SO TOO, IS THIS SCENARIO PLAYED OUT IN THE NEURAL WILDS OF EACH MAN’S MIND.
THE MYSTERIOUS STRANGER WHO SO IMPRESSED THE VILLAGERS, LEFT THEM WITH BUT THIS ONE MESSAGE:
“To BACTERIA, THERE IS NO, UP, DOWN, LEFT OR RIGHT.”

IN REGARD TO THE EVER-INCREASING DEPTH AND COMPLEXITY OF THE MORE EDUCATED AND SOPHISTICATED,
THE MORE CONSCIOUS ARE NOTHING, IF NOT SHALLOW AND TRANSPARENT.
THE DISABILITY, OR AT LEAST, DIS-INCLINATION, OF ORDINARY MINDS TO SEE THE OBVIOUS
IS WHAT KEEPS THEM BOTH RUNNING, AND ORDINARY,
AND LIFE FINALLY ASKED ONE GUY:
“OKAY — WHAT’LL IT BE:
Do YOU WANT TO BE SANE, OR ENLIGHTENED?”,
AND THE GUY THOUGHT ABOUT IT FOR A WHILE, THEN ASKED: “OKAY — WHICH PRODUCES THE MOST STRESS?”
96005-7
IS THERE A NEURAL NEED FOR ELECTRIC BLANKETS?!?
WHO WITH LIBRARIES, NEED TO THINK?!,
AND WHO WITH GALLERIES, NEED TO PAINT?!,
AND WHO WITH FINE MINDS, QUITE EQUAL TO ANY, NEED WORRY THEMSELVES ABOUT SUCH AS THIS?!
ANOTHER COMFORTER FOR THE CHILLY BEDS OF COMMON BRAINS,

A DIRECT MAN’S WAY To ISTANBUL
INVESTIGATE AND TALK ABOUT EVERY OTHER PLACE ON THE PLANET BUT THERE -AND — THERE YOU ARE!
LEGEND SAYS THERE WAS ONCE A MYSTERY SCHOOL
HIDDEN DEEP INSIDE AN OBSCURE, INACCESSIBLE MOUNTAIN RANGE, AND THAT ALL WHO SOUGHT ENTRY-THERETO, AND KNOWLEDGE-THEREFROM WERE THROWN FROM ITS HIGHEST PEAK.
IT IS NOT FOR REASONS INSIGNIFICANT
THAT LIONS, WOLVES, AND ORDINARY MEN FEEL SO DEEPLY, PATRIOTIC AND TERRITORIALY DEFENSIVE
ALL-IN-ALL:’TIS PROPER FOR MOST TO – STAY WHERE THEY ARE,
THE PERCEPTION OF PERSECUTION UNCLOTHED IN ANOTHER PSYCHOLOGICAL REALITY
ONE MAN FINALLY CONCLUDED:
“IF THERE IS A CONSPIRACY AGAINST ME, THEN I’M HEADING IT -AND IF I’M HEADING IT, LIFE PUT ME LIP TO IT.”
SOME DEAD PEOPLE WERE TALKING AND ONE OF THEM ASKED THE OTHERS: “DO YOU EVER FEELING GUILTY ABOUT NOT BEING ALIVE?”
AFTER A CONSIDERABLE PASSAGE OF TIME, AND A GREAT DEAL OF EFFORT, ONE MAN WAS ABLE TO LOCATE A REAL, LIVING MYSTIC,
AND AFTER LENGTHY AND COMPLEX NEGOTIATIONS,
MANAGED TO ARRANGE A MEETING WITH HIM,
AND ONCE PRESENTED TO THE WISE ONE, THE MAN ASKED THIS QUESTION: “IS IT DIFFICULT TO BECOME ENLIGHTENED WITHOUT GOING CRAZY?”, AND THE MYSTIC REPLIED: “YEAH….I GUESS.”
ALTHOUGH IT MAY NOT SO TRUE — OR EVEN BE TRUE:
ON THE-HIGHWAY-OF-LIFE,
IT IS THOSE DRIVING JUNKERS WHO MOST FEAR ADDITIONAL DINGS.
…(AND THE MYSTIC ADDED: “IF YOU CAN UNDERSTAND THIS ONE,
THEN BY GOD,YOU CAN UNDERSTAND WHAT I DID IN THE ABOVE STORY,)
IN ANOTHER UNIVERSE,
ON A PLANET POPULATED ENTIRELY BY WORDS, TWO WERE TALKING AND THE FIRST ONE SAID:
“WHAT DO YOU SUPPOSE IS THE TRUE PURPOSE OF MEN?”
AFTER HAVING WHAT WAS VERY LIKELY, “A COUPLE TOO MANY” AT THE BAR, LIFE BEGAN BOUNCING AROUND IN A THREATENING MANNER
RIGHT UP IN MAN’S FACE,
AND SAID TO LOCAL CONDITIONS, STANDING JUST BEHIND HIM:
“HOLD ME BACK NOW! — HOLD ME BACK ‘FORE I DECK THIS SUCKER!”
HAVING INSTANTLY LOST THE VERBAL BATTLE
THE MOMENT HE REPLIED TG THAT FIRST QUESTION ASKED OF HIM IN THE GARDEN, (HIS RESPONSE WHICH, COST VAN ALL-THAT-HE-POSSESSED TO THAT POINT),
ADAM HAD LITTLE CHOICE BUT TO CONCOCT SOME STORY OF A FORCE OUTSIDE HIMSELF WHOSE NEFARIOUS CHICANERY WAS ACTUALLY RESPONSIBLE FOR HIS FUCK-UP & DOWNFALL.
“DEAR GOD”, SAID THE POET,
“IN HOW MANY WAYS CAN THY BLESSED NAME BE SPELLED?”, TO WHICH THE SUPREME ONE REPLIED:
“HOW MANY WAYS CAN MAN SPELL, ‘EXCUSES’?!”,
(WHICH WAS NOT THEY SORT OF RESPONSE THE SCRIBE HAD EXPECTED.)
ONE DAY A COUPLE OF FOXES WERE LAZING ABOUT IN THE GRASS, AND ONE OF THEM SAID:
“YOU EVER NOTICE THAT YOU HAVE ONE TYPE OF DREAM IF YOU’VE EATEN MEAT, AND ANOTHER TYPE IF YOU’VE BEN EATING VEGETATION?
AND THE OTHER FOX TURNED AND LOOKED AT HIM CURIOUSLY AND REPLIED:
“WHAT ARE YOU – TRYING TO BECOME A MYSTIC?!”,
AND THE FIRST ONE SAID: “I WAS JUST WONDERING.”, AND THE SECOND ADDED:
“NEXT THING I KNOW YOU’LL BE QUESTIONING THE WHOLE NATURE OF DREAMING!”,
AND THE FIRST ONE SAID: “I WAS JUST WONDERING.”
WHY ORDINARY MINDS DON’T WANT To KNOW THE SECRET
THE ILLUSIONARILY SICK DON’T WANNA GET WELL! —
— TO THEM, THE WHOLE IDEA MAKES NO SENSE! —
…AND EVEN IF IT DID, IT DOESN’T STRIKE THEM AS POSSIBLE.
YES! – YET ANOTHER, SANE, ACCEPTABLE, AND PERFECTLY LOGICAL EXPLANATION OF WHY
ORDINARY MEN DO NOT HAVE ANY INTEREST IN KNOWING WHAT THE SECRET IS,
…(AND I’M SURE THIS OFFERS COMFORT AND REASSURANCE TO ALL THE SICK
THAT NOTHING OF ANY EXTRAORDINARY NATURE WILL BE
FORCIBLY REQUIRED OF THEM.)
ONE MAN WOULD HABITUALLY HOLD THE TOP OF HIS PEN BETWEEN HIS TEETH AS HE WOULD HURRIEDLY ATTEMPT TO GET DOWN IN WRITING
THE OUT-PUT OF HIS FEVERISH THINKING,
AND OFTEN, WHEN FINISHED,
DUE TO THE CONTINUING EXCITEMENT OF HIS MIND, AND HIS PRESS FOR TIME, INSTEAD OF RETURNING THE INSTRUMENT TO ITS CAP IN HIS MOUTH, HE’D STICK IT IN HIS EYE,
A MAN ONCE WONDERED: “IF LIFE COULD LAUGH — WOULD IT LAUGH AT MAN PLAYING OUT HIS NORMAL ROLES, OR AT HIM TRYING TO FIGURE THINGS OUT?!?
A MAN WROTE THE WHAM BAM DOCTOR AND ASKED:
“ARE WE BALANCED WHEN OUR ABILITIES EQUAL OUR INABILITIES?”, AND THE DOCTOR REPLIED:
“I WILL BE GLAD TO ANSWER THAT QUESTION, BUT FIRST I WANT YOU TO GO ASK AN ELEPHANT WHY HE CAN’T TAP DANCE, OR WORK CROSS WORD PUZZLES.”
THERE WAS ONCE A LAND WHEREIN THE CREATURES MOST TALENTED WERE THOSE WITH THE CAPACITY AND INCLINATION TO ALWAYS FEEL THEY WERE NOT SUFFICIENTLY SO.
JUST AS HOW ALL TRAVEL’S STOPPED,
WHEN THE END IS REACHED OF A CUL DE SAC, NONE WILL EVEN THAT FAR GO,
WHO KNOWLEDGE OF THE HIGHWAY HAVE,
THUS CONTINUES,
ON PROBLEM DAYS,
SCENES OF INTELLECTUALS PONDERING THE POSSIBILITY THAT: “THEY ARE HAPPIEST WHO KNOW LEAST.”,
A NON-WARMING THOUGHT EVEN TO THOSE DESPERATELY CHILLED,

A WARRIOR’S OFF-THE-BOOKS MEDICAL TIP
THE CURE FOR STRESS IS SHOCK.
A MAN WROTE TO-THE-TIGHTLY STRUNG DOCTOR AND SAID:,
“BUT FOR THE FEW, IS NOT SHOCK THE CURE FOR EVERYTHING?!”, AND TO HELP PROVE HIS POINT,
HE PRETENDED THAT THE DOCTOR REPLIED WITH A HIGHLY INSULTING REMARK HAVING NOTHING TO DO WITH THE MATTER AT HAND.
LINKS IN THE CHAIN OF SPECIOUS CONFLICT
THEORISTS DISLIKE EXPERIMENTERS, CARTOGRAPHERS, EXPLORERS,
AND DREAMERS, THOSE AWAKE.
THIS IS HOW IT’S INTENDED TO BE
THIS IS HOW THE ROUTINE PARADE KEEPS MOVING.

TODAY’S FAIRY TALE
IN THE YEAR 2000, ON ONE WORLD
WAS HELD A REUNION OF ALL THE LIVING AND THE DEAD
WHO’D DISCOVERED THE SECRET,
AND THE GATHERING WAS GIVEN THE NAME: “CAN You BELIEVE IT?!”

THE END.
THERE WAS ONCE A WORLD ON WHICH ALL THE CREATURES WERE BORN PURPLE, BUT AS LOCAL CONDITIONS DICTATED THAT THEY SHOULD DEVELOP FURTHER, IT CAUSED ALL THE HEALTHY ONES TO BELIEVE THEY SHOULD BE GREEN,
IT IS THE SIMPLE WHO PICTURE MAN’S INITIAL ENCOUNTER WITH GOD TO HAVE BEEN A NEGATIVE ONE,
LJ
A MAN ASKED A MYSTIC:
“AS REGARDS THE MATTER OF A TRANSCENDENTAL STATE OF CONSCIOUSNESS, WHY DO YOUR KIND GENERALLY SPEAK OF IT AS A ‘SPIRITUAL’ EXPERIENCE, (WHICH SEEMS INHERENTLY AND INESCAPABLY VAGUE AND IMPRECISE), RATHER THAN IN TERMS OF A MENTAL ONE,
WHICH COULD LEND ITSELF TO MORE EXACT DESCRIPTIONS?!”,
AND THE MYSTIC REPLIED:
“I AGREE, BUT THEN I MUST ASK YOU:
WHAT THE HELL’S WRONG WITH YOU PEOPLE’S HEARING CAPACITY?!”
As HE WOULD BOUNCE ALONG FROM MOUNTAIN TOP TO MOUNTAIN TOP, ONE MAN WOULD OFTEN SING TO HIMSELF:
“THE CHECK’S IN THE MAIL,
MY PECKER’S IN MY POCKET,
I CAN PLUG INTO LIFE,
MY MIND IS THE SOCKET.”,
AND THEN ONE DAY IT ALL SNOWED HIM UNDER.
\\AND ON THE OTHER SIDE OF THE POOL, A COUPLE OF GENTLEMEN WERE COMPARING THE AMOUNTS OF INSURANCE THAT THEY’D REALIZED FROM THE DESTRUCTION OF THEIR BUSINESSES, AND THE ONE WITH THE LEAST ASKED THE ONE WHO’D GOTTEN THE MOST: “BUT HOW DO YOU START AN AVALANCHE?!”
IS IT BETTER TO BELIEVE THAT LIFE IS A HARMLESS SPORT,
OR A SERIOUS CONTEST? —
.,.OR COULD IT EVEN BE PREFERABLE TO JUST LEAVE LIFE THE HELL ALONE, AND DON’T BELIEVE THAT IT’S ANYTHING IN PARTICULAR?!
…AND ONE MAN’S MIND SNOOTILY REPLIED.
“I’M SORRY — I SIMPLY NOT BUILT THAT WAY.”
THERE WAS ONCE A WORLD ON WHICH EVERYONE BELIEVED THEY KNEW WHAT WAS GOING ON -,,,WELL, NOT EVERYONE, “EVERYONE”,
FOR THERE WERE A FEW WHO ULTIMATELY CONCLUDED THAT
THE ACCEPTED COMMON VIEW DID NOT FULLY COVER THE REALITY OF IT ALL, AND THEY BEGAN TO PRIVATELY SCRAMBLE TO FILL IN THE MISSING PARTS,
THERE WAS ONCE A WORLD ON WHICH EVERYONE BELIEVED THEY KNEW WHAT WAS GOING ON — AND THAT’S THE WAY IT’S MOSTLY S’POSED TO BE.
SIMPLE PEOPLE FEEL THE LEAST STRESS, BUT ALSO HAVE AND ACCOMPLISH LEAST, WHILE THE MORE SOPHISTICATED HAVE MORE, DO MORE, BUT EXPERIENCE MORE STRESS, SO IT WOULD SEEM THE QUESTION IS: WHAT TO DO? — WHAT TO DO?!,
(BUT DON’T BOTHER ASKING IT OF A GIRAFFE, A DRUNK OR A MYSTIC — …WELL…NOT IF YOU’RE EXPECTING A SERIOUS REPLY.)

THE IMPLEMENTS OF THE MENTAL WARS
TRANSCENDENTAL THINKING EVENTUALLY RUNS OUT OF AMMO,
FROM HIS HIDDEN, PROTECTED POSITION HE CAME, PRESENTING HIMSELF TO HIMSELF, WITH THE DECLARATION: “I AM READY TO SURRENDER AND TURN MYSELF IN.” –
…WHAT MORE CAN AN ENLIGHTENED MIND DO?!”
AFTER HAVING DONE A GOOD DEED FOR A GENIE,
A CERTAIN MAN WAS OFFERED HIS CHOICE OF REWARDS: EITHER TO BE HAPPY, OR TO BE RATHER DUMB, AND THE MAN THOUGHT: “THAT’S A CHOICE?!”

The stress men feel in beinG a alive is in their thinking about being alive.

WITHIN A LAND THAT HAS NO BOUNDARIES REBELLION IS BUT AN ILLUSION.

BEHIND ALL SECRET, MYSTICAL LODGES ARE TWO CEMETERIES IN WHICH THEIR DEPARTED ARE BURIED;
(THERE IS ALSO A THIRD ONE FOR THOSE WHO WON’T STAY DEAD.)
