Blonde Moment - Poem by Linda Ori

They call it a blonde moment -
A glitch of intelligent thought
I knew what I thought I was thinking
But before I could think, I forgot;
It has something to do with the wiring
It's tangled, and tends to short out,
Somewhere in the process of thinking
I forget what I'm thinking about;
Tomorrow I may go out shopping
And buy a new color to try
So when I don't get what you're saying
You'll think that I do, but I lie;
I'll make a big change on the outside
So people will give me a nod
I'll still be a blonde on the inside
But no one will know it - thank God!

    Uproaressly funny. Such a wonderful flow and witty ease here Linda. This amazing write betrays the blonde who the poem so perfectly describes. Surely not written during a blonde moment. Love it! (Report) Reply

    Haha...I really enjoyed that. But even though you have blonde moments, you have moments of great creativity (as seen in this well written poem) . Great poem...well thought out and well executed. Top marks!

    Poetically speaking, blondes do have more fun...you've just proven that! Good stuff, Linda!

    Very funny Linda. It's unfair that this rubbish has passed into common usage - but I'm sure it's got a lot of potential for exploitation by bright blonde's - the writer for example! Who wrote this for you? xx jim (Report) Reply
