Stupid - Poem by Stevie Taite

I'm pretty dumb but my muse is much brighter
It seems that the strangest of things can excite her
If she gets dusty I give her a shaking
But it was just flour from where she's been baking.
When she is sad she's a dour alcoholic
She slumps in a corner and wines for her tonic
When she is happy she's contagious like giggles
She flounces around with her hair in cute pig tails.
She rarely gets caught as she steels through my senses
And fashions her fancies with
their consequences.
I'm glad she feels safe but I wish she'd stay put
I could sure use her help with this 'stupid' I've got.


Poet's Notes about The Poem

I'm not completely stupid but I lack a good memory and have a shallow capacity for the really important stuff that goes on in the world! I am learning quite a bit through people's poems though!

    You do very well, I love reading your work, your muse must be shining very brightly, ,

    Very few people (if any) can take on board all that goes on in this world, good, bad, (some very bad) , and indifferent.
