THE SNEERING GOBLIN

'SPOTTING THE SNIDES'


Sniggers, smirks and sneers.
The snide ones, they're all around. 
They stare, mockingly. 

They laugh at your dreams, 
Taunt all of your hopes and plans,
Snort at your efforts.

If you let them in
If the snide's your co-pilot?
Your plane, it will crash.

Thing is: they who sneer?ย 
They've a fragile sense of self: 
Their pain throbs deeply.

The joy and beauty
Of your building and trying
Is their grim poison. 

Made foul by self-hate
They want to give you their pain. 
They're rancid goblins.

You cannot help them
So take away their power
By ignoring them.

So, to summarise
With quick and simple advice: 
I just say: Fuck 'em.

      1. Haha… only if it’s strawberry flavoured. ;
        And yes… grandmother was a real tough old stick. They don’t make ’em like her any more… I wish we still owned her motorbike. ๐Ÿ˜‰

      2. She wrote it. ๐Ÿ˜‰
        Haha, seriously though, she was from a big family of mavericks… the bike was from the 1930s but she kept the thing for decades. I always wanted a ride in the sidecar but it wasn’t meant to be. ๐Ÿ˜‰ Ah well… maybe I should buy my own one day. and go on “A Bike Trip for Grandma”. ๐Ÿ˜€

      3. Whoops… well, it’s been over 20 years for me… haha, yes, I was the proverbial Rebel Without a Clue, I’m sure: cycling up and down those Cotswold hills with sheer reckless abandon… not sure the little basket on the front helped my image, though. ๐Ÿ˜ฎ

      4. Haha, yes… it’s a bit of a creative brainstorm tonight(!) [Assuming one can still say ‘brainstorm’…. I must use the internet more…]
        Of course, I know a lot of kids TV because as a boy the TV was my 3rd parent (1st, really, but I keep that quiet…)

      5. I know… thinking back, it’s half-way to barbarianism. ๐Ÿ˜‰ Of course, if there was nothing on TV I’d always have my Rubik’s Cube… which I’d throw across the room before I cried in frustration… such a happy young thing, I was. ๐Ÿ˜‰

      6. Haha… Saturday evening isn’t the same without Gladiators. ๐Ÿ˜‰
        With regard to the C-Maze, did you have a favourite zone? I hear it’s a psychological indicator. ๐Ÿ˜‰

      7. Haha… I wonder what that says about us? We’re living in the past? *rolls eyes* Just because I’m still racking out in a shell-suit, does not mean I’m still living in 90’s! :-p

  1. I appreciated your words. Sadly my own on the topic were in minimalism, but I share them with you. And feel free to delete this comment, as I need no fame-phishing… ๐Ÿ˜‰
