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!
 
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
