Living in Fear
Couples of Varying Ages
-How crazy would you say we were?
-Scale of ten, with ten threatening to plummet through
bizarre space forever?
-That's up there!
-Well, I don't wanna brag.
-Who are the ones through sixes? Relative normals.
-Your mother and my father, being sweetly incompetent.
-Can't say that! Incompetence being another scale.
-Okay, let's leave it pure then. Nut-ness chart only.
-Now, the opposite set...?
-YOUR father and MY mother?
-They may already be in charge.
-Armies must be raised against them!
-Too late! They're great organizers. They've got all the tens
already drilling, shooting. The whole heroic smear.
-What'll we do?
-Flee to Bora Bora.
-Where’s Bora Bora anyway?
-I'll google it before the severe maniacs come to dinner.
Why aren’t the incompetents better buffers, anyway?
-They’ll do their sweet, weak bests.
-Ugh! Dreading dinner diminishes!
-It’ll get worse when the batso pair know we’ve blown their cover.
-Maybe they’ll all get divorced, and then these two’ll...!
-It’s already a horror show without homegrown sex.
That...last ...IMAGE...has permanently mishmashed my brain!
-Like some Bacon with that Scrambled?
