Mental Beatings


Sitting mellowed out or not upon a couch.
With a peace one has,
Or has stopped.
All are finding,
They've become bothered by incredible news.
That's meant to bother!
And confuse...
With a doing,
Anyone who wishes to dismiss it.
And anyone who wishes it to rid.

Sitting mellowed out or not upon a couch.
With a peace one has,
Or has stopped.
All are finding,
They've become bothered by incredible news.
That's meant to bother!
And confuse...
With a doing,
Anyone who wishes to dismiss it.
And anyone who wishes it to rid.

Mental doses beaming in from TV screens.
Mental beatings feeding to demean.
Mental doses beaming in from TV screens.
Mental beatings feeding to demean.

Sitting mellowed out or not upon a couch.
With a peace one has,
Or has stopped.
All are finding,
They've become bothered by incredible news.
That's meant to bother!
And confuse,
With...
Mental doses beaming in from TV screens.
Mental beatings feeding to demean.
Mental doses beaming in from TV screens.
Mental beatings feeding to demean.

Nothing but woes,
That grow...
With...
Mental doses beaming in from TV screens.
Mental beatings daily feeding to demean.
Nothing but...
Mental doses beaming in from TV screens.
Mental beatings daily feeding to demean.
Nothing but...
Mental doses beaming in from TV screens.
Mental beatings feeding to demean.
Nothing but...
Mental beatings.

And nothing but...
Mental beatings.

No nothing but...
Mental beatings.

And nothing but...
Mental beatings.

More woes to grow and grip the soul,
With...
Mental beatings.
Sold with a hold,
Those mental beatings.
Sold with a hold,
Those mental beatings.
One can't let go,
Those mental beatings.

Mental beatings.

Poem of the Day

poet Percy Bysshe Shelley

We are as clouds that veil the midnight moon;
How restlessly they speed, and gleam, and quiver,
Streaking the darkness radiantly!--yet soon
