I will never pretend that I am neither gullible nor misinformed. I am one or both of those on a very consistent basis, if not constantly. All I can say in defense of myself, with all of these lacks and lapses, is that I continue to ask questions, try to learn, and hope for the patience and kindness of my teachers. And for the ability to accept new knowledge and make the changes it requires, accordingly.
Contradicting every rule
Is, sure, the hallmark of a fool
—Except in times and places where
The rules are stupid and unfair—
The problem, clearly: to define
Whose rules are foolish,
Oh brilliant!! That IS the crux of the matter, isn’t it? Way to hit the nail on the head, Miss Kathryningrid!!
The rock, paper, or scissored souls they are written on?
Brilliant poem! Love the photo too.
Good point! Thanks for visiting my blog Kathryn, I thought it was about time that I returned the favour. It’s coming near the end of our busy season so I shall have more time to check in on the blogging community. (After one of those 18 hour naps maybe!)
Great philosophy! Love the photo. . My dog says you covered up the best part of it tho. .. 🐶
There are some good – useful – rules, but plenty of stupid and unfair ones. And, you’re right – it’s often all in the perspective. XO
Fortunately, all of *my* rules are spectacularly brilliant and just! Wink-wink-wink!!!
