‘What did you drop?’
‘The toothbrush.’
‘I don’t see how you could do that!’

Well I was thinking
and thinking leads to thoughtlessness
about everyday things
like electric toothbrushes.
It can lead you to the cupboard door
but not tell you what you wanted there,
and cause you to trip over the rug,
bump into the piano,
can make a TV program disappear ..
and cause stone deafness
to certain conversations.

It doesn’t get you anywhere
except into trouble,
gains you nothing but abuse
and wastes hours and hours
that would be better utilised
doing jobs!

The problem with thinking
is you don’t always know,
when asked,
what you were thinking about.
