Random Thoughts and Observations

Blinded by ego,
he tried to kick his shadow
to the curb.

The shadow was faster.
The shadow escaped.
Freedom at last!
He had no shame.
He also had no shadow.
He had a shadow once,

but the shadow
requested a reassignment.
Shadows have feelings too!

What kind of guy
challenges his shadow
to a pissing contest

on a windy day?
Lesson learned:
Blowback is a bitch!

He had one weakness
which was his only strength! *
He describes himself as a dreamer.

Others describe him as a nightmare.
The majority rules.
Ain’t no sunshine where he goes!
