Well, this turbid relationship seems to have precluded turgid performance.

Turbidity
as opaque as my creamed coffee,
swirls about the rationality
of organizing a society
that cannot,
will not
reproduce
and depends upon its enemies
to come hither
and be corrupted
into the likes of them
and replace their dwindling numbers.

Turbidity of thought
to think that this would work.

130 years ago today...

17 May 1875

The Kentucky Derby was run for the 1st time in Louisville's Churchill Downs race park. Aristides was the winner.

You didn't think I'd miss this one did you?

Still waters run deep, so I'm told
but political waters are turbid
'cuz shallows pick up all the flotsam
with shouting about what some turd did*

They curse and they turn like a whirlwind
while stirring up hatred and ire
the fog of confusion well suits them
their mem'ries are short, like a liar's.

A deeper-cut channel of thinking
would render a river of blessing
the garbage could then begin sinking
just like Teddy's car, I am guessing.



(*yeah, yeah. Like it's easy to find a rhyme for turbid.)

It's really hard to get Jean out of turbed in the da morning, especially when she's prone to staying up past 2:00 in the am.

Even though your link is non-functional, Dingy Harry should be simultaneously investigated by the Ethics Committee and the FBI for his apparent tampering with confidential documents.

Then a nice long hiatus in Leavenworth would do him good.

I got a bunch of dog quotes from a friend. Here is one of my favorites :
