Magic 8 Ball Lyrics

I’ve got a horseshoe hanging right above my door
I had a black cat but she doesn’t live here anymore
I look for romance, I search for clues and
The mystery I want to solve is you

I cross my fingers every time that you walk by
(- that you walk by)
I put the whammy on you with my hypnotic eye
But you’re oblivious, don’t take me serious
So there’s one last thing that I can try

My magic 8 ball tells me just what I should do
(- what I should do)
I wanna ask it whether I should be in love with you
Will it tell me yes or no?
(- yes or no?)
Will it tell me stop or go?
I close my eyes, hold my breath and it says…

Decidedly so, decidedly so, decidedly so
Decidedly so, decidedly so, decidedly so
My four-leaf clover is going right into the trash
My rabbit’s foot my voodoo doll will follow fast
I’ll step on every crack, you know I won’t look back
Because now my lucky streak is gonna last

Reading Challenge

I’m doing the 2019 Goodreads Challenge and of the 101 books I’ve

said I’m going to read, I’ve got 8 in so far and reading my ninth now.

 

Giordano Bruno: Philosopher/Heretic

In A Word

 

Today I went out and  on my walk and I looked for words-

Some words were obvious, some were abstract, some were in a jumble, some were colorful others looked like words but probably weren’t what they appeared to be.

Come to think about it, words are just like people.

Splish Splash Bloonk

Complicated

Write a new post in response to today’s one-word prompt.

On the surface, things never look complicated.

Do you know why that is?

Because they’re not.

Things only get complicated when you pitch a stone or drop a dead body through that

smooth uncomplicated surface and mess it up.

A week or so ago, I sort of took myself off of Facebook. I kept the account open because my blog links go there automatically and I like the photo album set ups.

I was asked ‘why’ a lot.

My decisions wasn’t a complicated one- I’d rather have people like  something I created rather then like something I repeated.

Still, that one action on my part broke the seemingly smooth uncomplicated surface of the way we have all agreed to communicate.

So what is it about those smooth calm surfaces that brings out the Devil in us, that makes us drag that corpse to it’s edge or above it and drop it in.

Do we like the watching the splash? Do we like hearing that ‘ bloonk’ sound?

Is this a hard question to answer…

or a complicated one?
