I don’t want to know what’s going on in the world.

I just want to know if I have gas for the lawnmower and if the sprinklers should be set for 7 am or 7 pm because the water company will turn off my water and we could die of thirst.

I don’t want to know what’s going on in the world.

I just want to know if I have to drop off my kids at the ball-field at 7 or 8 pm. It’s important to know for sure because perverts are everywhere.

I don’t want to know what’s going on in the world.

I just want to know if I need to fill the bird feeder or if Home Depot has the spring for our back door, because a baby-fucker might steal one of my kids.

I don’t want to know what’s going on in the world.

I just want to know if I have enough food and provisions stored in my basement and the ammo to keep out my neighbors when Satan comes….

I just want to know if I should leave early for church; it’d be nice if I was there first….

I just want to know why people keep staring at me when I’m in town, and why I always see a big blue car in our neighborhood….

I just want to know that my children will graduate high school and go to a college of their choosing.

I just want my kids to have a career that they will love and will enable them to provide for their own family, at least until Satan comes….

I just want to know why the people at my job are always talking behind my back and are jealous of me.

I wonder if they know that I know….

I just want to make sure that I time the police response when I make the fake bomb threat….

I just want to call my doctor and ask about my headache medicine; oh wait, that’s right…he’s dead.

He cut off his head this morning while chopping firewood and bled to death.

I just want to know if his wife found him yet, I left him hanging on the kids tree swing; oh wait, that’s right…she’s dead too.

I don’t want to know what’s going on in the world.

I don’t want to know what’s going on in the world.

I don’t want to know what’s going on in the world.

I just want to know why my head hurts so much every single time Satan calls me on my cell phone; every hour on the hour.; like clock-work.

Tick Tock….. Tick…. Tock….

He’s as bad as my wife; oh wait, she’s in the tub with her hair-dryer.

Dang….another phone call….

I just want to know why all of my co-workers are running around screaming, I only shot a few of them.

It hurts my head.

I don’t want to know what’s going on in the world.

I’m tired of reading and seeing stuff on TV about all the crazy people and terrible things they do to each other; like Aids and Fags and Niggers and Jews and Communists….

I just want to know why it’s taking the cops so long to get here….

My head hurts and my phone won’t quit ringing.

wpid-the-joker-2-1.jpegI can’t see whose calling because the batteries dead…it’s weird that the ringer still works though.

I don’t want to know what’s going on in the world.

I should have brought more ammo to work, I used up too much at the grocery store, I think.

“Hello…Yeah, it’s me….What? Yeah, I got most of ‘em”….Okay…..bye”

I don’t want to know what’s going on in the world.

Would you?

Oh, the damn phone again…

“What?” “Yeah…” “Okay, hold on; they’re right here”

“He wants to talk to you”

    1. Thx MK! Where in the hell have you been!? I was starting to wonder if you dropped off the earth! You know that you can’t leave me unattended for this long! I need your magnificent ego stroking ability! Hey, seriously, when you get time make sure to read my post “Being in love” and “Staying in love” I’m trying an idea and wanna see what you think. A kinda twist on a narrative and observational style. Glad you checked in, and thanks again!

      1. I have been in hell, but I am back. Been reading, not writing. Yesterday I sold a bunch of watercolors at an art trail. Made me feel much better.
        Also, I have been enjoying the direction of the love, family series. see I read!

      2. Good on the art exploitation! You are very very good. I have a little water color set, and a beginner video. I’ve had this thing for watercolors since the 4th grade when I saw a lobster fisherman painting in my school. It’s amazing how much it affected me and how I’ve remembered it for so long. I sketch quite a bit, but I want to learn how to paint like the guy on TV with the afro. I prefer watercolors because you can turn a smear into a tree or taller mountain. Lol!
