I’m having second thoughts. I can’t believe it.
Nothing is still stirring; it just won’t quit.
I know I said something was about to change
And I know something is very much in range.
But I keep holding nothing back; it’s relentless.
Which should I do? I just sit here and obsess.
Do I do something or do I do nothing I ask.
Help me out—which is the more worthy task?
I keep saying nothing’s limited; it can only go so far
Then I come up with something and raise the bar.
No one else blogging seems to have this controversy
It haunts only me and ignores my pleas for mercy.
Now all I think about is nothing all the time.
Add to that when nothing’s said it has to rhyme.
Wow, that’s a double whammy I hadn’t predicted.
I can’t imagine how things go so damn conflicted.
Then my friend Suzanne says “no soup for you!”
It may not be soup, but for sure I’m in a stew.
I thought today I’d be off in a whole new direction.
But here I sit analyzing all this self-inspection.
There’s just something I know I much rather do
But nothing’s ringing a bell. I haven’t a clue.
And while nothing has me so tightly bound.
Something is right there still sticking around.
Wait, there’s more confusion coming out
We still must learn what anything is all about.
