I have reached a conclusion: this nothingness is no longer fun.

It has definitely run its course and, well, I think it’s done.

Maybe what I should do is add a little something, not much.

A small nip of substance to ease us back in touch.

I could maybe discuss a little of this or a little of that.

Just light topics, nothing too heavy, nothing too fat.

I know for sure the weather is always a good ice-breaker.

People at parties always find it a good conversation maker.

“How ‘bout that storm we had last night with all that rain!”

See, there’s a little tidbit to toss about inside your brain.

You’d answer back and explain about the hole in your roof.

And right there and then all this talk of nothing would go poof!

Suddenly there would be lots of things we could talk about.

Nothing could stop us. Oh, it would try, I have no doubt.

But if we fought back and kept a good discussion going

The things we could talk about would start overflowing.

You can ask me if I like something and I’d say “I do.”

Then we’d keep bantering back and forth, me and you.

How’s the family?  How’s the job?  Can we do lunch?

I would answer all your questions, the entire bunch.

And so we’d be off and running; normalcy would resume.

I think that would be great.  You agree, I assume?

So there, all this nothingness be gone; we shall start anew.

I’m so excited.  Finally, at last, I’ll have something to do
