Take Your Pick

LEFT: A modern take-off of the "Keep Calm" poster, from Flowers & Fleurons

RIGHT: The original wartime (WWII) poster, British of course

Ah.That's better.
Now the sun has entered my home sign, Pisces, I feel in my element again.
The element of fluid, paradoxical, nonlinear water,
where the squid frolic and play!
Or kill and dismay.
Or whatever they may...

Oh, happy day!

Yes, and I declare it the season of bad poetry and non/sense too, the creation of which is a human right. Or need. Or something.
And more delightfully on display as people become giddy here in the far northern hemisphere now that the days are getting longer.

Hey! I'm in silly rhymin' scheme mode lately, too. When I can't fall back asleep in the wee hours, my mind riffs on rhymin' things that take off from whatever random word comes to mind. Much to the dismay of my sleeping buddy, sometimes i can't resist muttering or giggling them out loud. Too much fun. One of these days, i will try to find out my birthtime and then commission our mutural pal, astrologista to do a natal chart for me. Hmmm... the veriword is "carties", I've already got like fifty words and images floating around.
Happy spring and birth times!

Can't I keep calm and change things? I would prefer to keep calm and change things.

Where the Squid Kill and Dismay, a thriller by Stephen King. :)

STEF: Happy Upcoming Birthday to you!

MARGARET: Absolutely, you can!
It's a mix-it-up, both/and kinda world, eh?

I kind of want to see the crown exploding on the variant. Yes, I know, what would Freud say.

SPARKER: You are so right! An exploding (or otherwise dynamic change in) the crown would have really illustrated the change in pov.
