Dreaming

Dreaming-In-Your-Dreams-.jpg
I once dreamed of flying
Up in the sky
The wind beneath my wings
Seeing the world from above
Like a bird
Without care or worry

I once dreamed of diving
Down in the sea
Water floating all around me
Seeing the world through waves
Like a fish
Without care or worry

I once dreamed of crawling
Inside the earth
Dirt surrounding me
Seeing the world from its depths
Like a worm
Without care or worry

When I awake from my dreams
I feel the wind
I drink the sea
and I walk the earth
Like a man
Worrying about what the meaning of life is

I hope you liked this poem.

Have a nice Friday!

One thing led to another…

SpecialSaturday #5

At dinner, I was telling my brother about this bit in a stand-up show by Brian Regan that is one of my favourites. It’s this bit about writers using the phrase ‘and one thing led to another’. Brian is saying how that phrase is just lazy writing. It is the writer’s job to tell the reader how this led to that.
He gives a genius example:
Adolf Hitler was rejected as a young man in his application to art school
one thing led to another…
and the United states dropped two atomic bombs on the sovereign nation of Japan.

You can see the clip here:

My brother being the genius that he is came up with his own example:
Harry woke up in the closet under the stairs
one thing led to another…
and Harry killed Voldemort.

So I decided to come up with some examples myself.

God created the heaven and the earth
one thing led to another…
and Jesus died.

Bill Clinton did have sexual relations with that woman
one thing led to another…
and Trump became president.

Bilbo went on an adventure
one thing led to another…
and Frodo destroyed the ring.

Once upon a time there was a princess
one thing led to another…
and they lived happily ever after.

Gutenberg discovered the printing press
one thing led to another…
and fifty shades of grey was published.

A monkey walked on two legs
one thing led to another…
and I am writing this post on my computer.

I hope you enjoyed this post. If you come up with some ‘one thing led to another’ examples write them in the comments.

Have a nice Saturday.
