To be

How the hell would I know
what is going on?
I'm merely made of atoms
singing their own song
or maybe something deeper
but nothing known to me
my place is just to ponder
and simply briefly be

And some days just to be - without the pondering.

I don't find 84 years and 10 months very brief. Good thing, I stopped pondering a while back. Eat, drink, be merry, and sleep. That's a sufficient philosophy in my present life. My 98-year-old, French Canuck, and very classy sister, in Montreal, would add, with twinkling eyes, "Et n'oublie pas de chier!"

I hope you're laughing, Andrew. Your WORDS are always very interesting.
