    The Anti-Device

    Ever been cannonaded by enemies,
    torpedoed by insecurities,
    your self-image bullet riddled by fault;
    your attitude shelled and your smile in shrapnel
    like a suit of armor held together by a loose bolt ?

    When they all zero-in to land on target,
    to detonate and make you explode,
    do what I did and mentally remove
    the flush from the side of the commode.

    In the morning, I attach it to the side of my head
    and await the barrage of the day.
    The torpedoes and shells don't hurt any more
    'cause I click and flush each one away.

    At the close of the day,
    there's no backup of tension
    or need for intensive therapy.
    My Anti-device will work for you
    very well like it works for me.

    And I'm not implying that you can have mine
    or that I will make you a loan.
    Just go to your bathroom and open the door,
    and there you'll find one of your own !

    ROFLMBO!

    .

    What a concept! And the imagery of that is hilarious yet makes so much sense! Just "flush" alla that negativity away. Kinda like "shakin' the devil off" but when you "flush" it, it's gone for good!

    Humourous way of saying where all the "foolishness" of the day should go. Using mind over matter, we can place all that waste exactly where it belongs. I appreciate the message, as well as the flair in which it was posed.

    CherryBlossom – “shakin’ the devil off”’. I like the imagery of your mind because I believe that accurately portrays our often inability to rid ourselves from the devilish ravages of the day or the week and sometimes the whole year. We often harbor these ills like treasures until they poison the heart. So here’s a device to daily reorient the spirit and the outlook which when properly used should clear away all debris and provide clarity to build on concrete foundations. Hey ! Maybe I should try to market this device to Home Depot. Just an idea! Just an idea!LOL . Thanks for your wonderful enjoyment CB. Namyh

    Waz - Look at this way. The “foolishness” of the day must be put somewhere and usually we bury it inside to fester for the next day. This device is just a drop-bin for mental disposal rather than mental storage. And that’s a helpful flair all its own. Thanks Waz for your insight of mind over matter. Glad you liked the message.

    Rich – Even Tidy Bowl would like the patent for this device. It’s a modern day stress relief ritual that is easily accessible and costs less than $75 an hour on someone’s couch. This frightens the hell out of psychiatrists and that’s a funny flush for anybody’s head.LOL Thanks Rich. Namyh

    khasm – Give it a try and let us know if it helped to eliminate the stress on your chest that’s a bunch of mess. If it’s a very heavy load, you may need two devices, one on each side of the head until there is a substantial reduction. I know this will work. I've had three and I keep a backup. Thanks for stopping by Khasm with your flow.LOL Namyh
