One Single Impression: Paradox

Paradox Trilogy

Oh you paradox
try to put you in a box
--make mine out of pine?

Ashes to ashes
once for every gal or guy
--surely will not die?

I die quickly then
brightly burns the fire for me
--awake! dream will end!

...................................

Trials and Tribulations

Paradox was lost
how and why did it happen
Paradise is not

Paradox still lost?
see very brilliant pupil
grins - his Sad Report

Paradox not lost
pupil very brilliant not
shiny H'vn at last

..................................

A Paradox or Few

If came saw ate went
then quickies I like to have
--I like all quickies?

- - - - -

My neighbor I love
my neighbor steals lies covets
--love my neighbor still?

- - - - -

Never wrong am I
except just this one time when
I said never wrong

Each one of these was so wonderfully thoughtful and yet so much fun. Did you hear me giggling?

Yes Jim, it does come across with the brilliant and not so brilliant. But the trilogy is so fun I couldn't pick out just one to comment on. How's that for a paradox :)
