Muse for Monday

Someone would like to light fire to the Internet. Is there a firefighter in the house? Ugh. Really? Perhaps, we can get one on call?

firefairyM3While we are at it, we may as well call the Coast Guard and a surgeon… and probably a detective squad, as we all know they cannot do anything singly.

Mantra has harnessed my (searching for nice word, unsuccessfully… Let’s just be honest.) abhorrence of stupid people.  The oral diarrhea is more than I can stomach on most days.

The day Mantra had me pen this gem, I got more than one strange look for my giggling in the library. What? I am entitled to laugh, too.

Apparently, suicide is a trending topic on M3 since I gave up and just decided to write about it after the stupid people kept searching for it here. Today, we are going to talk about a completely different kind of suicide, to be specific hara-kari.

Intellectual Hara-kari

Talking to you is intellectual hara-kari.
I have to sacrifice brain cells because
I cannot make them fail to fire.

So many of yours are murdered,
Bludgeoned to screaming death,
Before they are washed to the sewer

Whence most of your ideas spring.
Others fade into oblivion, used far beyond
The time they should retire.

There is no victory in those thoughts
Because they are based on mistakes, lies,
Assumptions and paranoia you conjure.

The final set cannot survive in your head.
The rational cells are drowned in an ocean
Of malfeasant, self-perpetuating ooze.

They fall to the ground mortally wounded,
Bleeding from the eardrums from hearing
Looping hours of rhetorical exposition.

You never bothered to beg, borrow or steal
A life preserver for your mind, much less
Have the wherewithal to attempt to use

Those precious sane cells to extricate yourself
From the effluviating mountains of feces
You claim create your salvation.

My humanity demands I help those less
Intelligent, fortunate and resourceful as I.
I have decided to ignore its pleas.

My brain cells fall in, steadfast veterans
Of philosophy and logic, captains of
Observation and reason.

They will not march to your suicidal defense.
They’ll not risk synapses over your decaying
Neural pathways, littered with disease,

Self-inflicted infection of inanity, stupidity,
Obstinance, entitling you to star as the victim
In the off off off (where is?) Broadway production

Of Intellectual Hara-kari.

Dead Brain Cells

Have you ever found anyone who was committing intellectual harakari? Should we just let them?

  1. I probably shouldn’t say too much about that sort of thing…
    because if anyone’s foot is permanently stuck in their mouth it’s mine!

  2. I have given up on those that cannot find brain cells to use them.

  3. It really seems as if stupidity is spreading. Perhaps it is de-evolution. In a few more generations, we may not be smart enough to even survive.

  4. TV Kills brain cells – a well known fact – so the more TV we watch the dumber we get! 🙂

    There is nothing so brain paralysing as reality TV!!! 🙁

    I tried saving some people, but gave up when I realised they were two brain cells short of a pair…

    Love and hugs!

  5. I LOVE this! Mantra, you have outdone yourself! Let the slaggers make their own choices, I say… just keep them away from me!!!
    And of course, when I join that befuddled addled clan, may ostriches, solitude and muteness be my (your?) salvation!!

    What is with that picture?!?!? EEEEEUUUUWWWW!

  6. Wow, and appropriate too, something like the black smoke spewing out of the Sistine Chapel recently.

    • You mention smoke and Sistine Chapel and I am wondering what kind of fire protection they have. My guess it the departure from white smoke in the papal election process is a bad sign or indicative of cardinals playing with matches and the wrong fuel source.

  7. BWahahahahahaha…oh this is too much.. I love it.. just love it! ♥

  8. I would love to see this as Spoken Word. Can’t you just see it, I can.
