Weekly Scribblings - What would it be?



Did you ever wish you could trade bodies
For bigger body parts or for smaller ones 
Nobody wants ours the old wrinkled ones 
Or other blemished or disabled ones 

So we should be happy with what we've got 
"It's the only place we have to live in"** 
But just think of the pleasure we could have 
Like driving of a new car--love that smell 

So that's what we have, thinking and wishing 
"It's the only place we have to live in"

**Note: words of  Jim Rohn who "was an American  entrepreneur, author, and motivational speaker . . . "

I love this take on the prompt, said with a hint of regret I'm guessing. "Due to biological difficulties, we can't book accommodation elsewhere"

Good write, Jim. Yes, we're stuck with the shape we're in!

A thing of the past Dr Jim, but a real satisfaction! When it happened before it was cause of celebration but very infrequently though!

Nothing wrong with flights of fancy.
