I’m not asking you to:
Scale the walls
of creepy castles
Dive into a medieval moat
Slice anybody’s throat
Send complex smoke signals
Ride into the savage storm
shooting scarlet arrows
Battle blood-curdling cyclops
Wrestle wild aurochs
Banish ghouls or ghosts
I’m not asking you
to be brave, a saint, a hero

Why would I?
When you’re not even able
to return a fucking phone call

  1. You sucked me in, then dropped the bomb! Nice touch. Sometimes we INFJs do that, eh? Wooohooahhhhahhhh! So evil (as I slyly grin). I don’t know the emoji for a sly grin, lol!

    1. Haha this came to me in the night, the first 2 lines and the last 2…so I always knew I was going to drop the bomb with this one πŸ˜‰ I just had to “pad it out” a little lol
      Thanks Dara 😈
      From 1 INFJ to another, I think the emoji for a sly grin is 😏

  2. People that don’t reply is a pet peeve of mine. It’s so rude. I’m not just talking about texts but FB etc. Talking of FB, I’ve closed my account because of all the knuckle dragging, moronic, far right posts that keep appearing.

    Anyway, don’t stand for any of his nonsense, sweetheart.

    1. Oh gosh yes, I hate it too! And people who only reply to part of your messages, conveniently ignoring bits of it because they don’t like to give a straight answer. Urgh!
      FB is the pits!! I haven’t closed my account yet (because I just made a FB page associated with this blog) but I don’t use it anymore. I can’t keep reading about boring and mundane and downright stupid statuses anymore. The interesting people who are on FB never use it…so you’re left with the dregs of humanity…no thanks!
      And don’t worry, I don’t stand for any nonsense β€” life is too short! πŸ˜‰

      1. Yeah I wrote a poem about Facebook. The only thing I liked about it was looking at all the upcycling and crafting pages.

        Glad you have your head on straight, it would infuriate me too, being ignored. I’d rather they just be direct and say they don’t want to talk anymore.

  3. Aaaaand ‘BANG!’, a swift kick in the bollocks after a sense of curiosity has been established! Well done! πŸ˜„ I expect that those who read this and find themselves being directly addressed will be chuckling nervously at their folly.

      1. Haha…you’ve been reading through the latest posts πŸ˜‰
        Can I just add, for general information, that I may have an addictive personality but I do try to keep a lid on it, I don’t succumb to everything I feel like succumbing to, far from 😜
        I love that you’ve used the Gollum quote β€” Lord of the Rings is my *everything* 😊
        Thank you, for your visit and for making me laugh as I’m getting ready for sleep…2.12am…I’d better get a move on 😴

    1. Some explaining, definitely…and probably a bit of grovelling too πŸ˜€
      Thank you Norm, I’m fighting the fight on behalf of all of us who just won’t accept pure rudeness and an utter lack of manners πŸ˜‰

    1. Thank you Charlie! I’m so pleased to have approval from that talented wacky brain of yours πŸ˜‰ And, great song again, I’m wondering if you’ve guessed I’m a bit of a rock chick at heart? πŸ˜‰
