Elementary

Elementary dear Watson …
The fisherman stood upon the rock
and next minute he vanished
no safety gear or swimming skills

His family will be distressed
but he took risks he couldn’t best
Why do we think we are immortal
when life is a temporary portal

Taking senseless risks by driving
too fast, experimenting with meds,
life is fragile get into your heads
get smart and take responsible care

      1. Thank you. I’m always a little concerned about being called interesting since my teens when I was told I had an interesting face and later discovered the person who told me this was laughing behind my back at the bobble on my lower lip! I’m hopeful there are no untoward bobbles on my blog!!

  1. My mother-In-Law smoked 2-3 packs of cigarettes a day. She had cancer and had a breast removed. She continued to smoke 2-3 packs a day. Like she was defying, perhaps even daring, the inevitable. I suppose the same could be said for people jumping out of a perfectly good airplane.
