'Useless'..... [human Uselessness; Psychology; Useless Advice? ; Humor/Humour? ; Sort Of Short]

Rating: 3.3

'Useless' can be a nasty word; it can make one feel just like a turd.
But, if you think about it, that's ABSURD. [It' just a word! ! ] …. 'Useless'
I suppose, at times, it's said in jest, or at a bothered mind's behest.
But you'd better never (it) believe, ‘cause if you do, you may be apt to grieve,
AND wish you‘d never ever been born, AND think of …..Mom and Dad with scorn.

You may be bald, deaf, or even toothless,
but NO ONE ever is …..COMPLETELY useless!
WELL ……NO, I'll NOT say …….some things that I 'could'.
They might hurt YOU and YOU. That'd be NO GOOD!
So keep deluding yourselves. Yes! YOU-be-RUTHLESS!
AND keep telling yourselves 'I'M NOT USELESS! '

I believe in minimalism; so I strive to use less words as possible in my writing.

You didn't tickle, but honestly gave a tilt! So very true.... never ever tell anyone that he is useless as that very word is USELESS......! Even if someone tells it, don't believe it or take it to heart...... Yes, Bri, there is always 'method in your madness'!

I could make a cheap shot and say this useful, but then that would just be useless wouldn't it? Still this was actually a delightful comeback, obviously the person who made the comment was not familiar with your ability to bend the lexicon in a very strategically way much to their dismay. And it is just a word, only a word that bites, whiles yours attack, but in a good way. It got to my funny bones, even the caps lock.
