Two Little Monsters….

Watch Those Ears!

Watch Those Ears!

smile emoticon kolobok

Two little monsters, Must and Ought,
Command the worlds of one and all;
Havoc to many lives have brought,
Responding to their beck and call.

Fine feathered ‘Must’, highly appraised,
Offers attractive personal gain;
Our trusty loyal standards raised,
Enslavement treated with disdain.

‘Ought’, the subtle slave-driver,
Thrives on all emotional needs;
To former favours he’ll refer,
Till he becomes your living creed.

Exquisite charmers are these clones,
Master craftsmen of disguise;
Floating in and out like drones,
To the end with life’s demise.


(From: Late Harvest ’09)

  5. Oh dear – and very unwelcome house guests they can be, requiring some self-awareness in order to disentangle them from their lookalike brother, ‘responsibility’ … ! What a delightful photo. Did you take it?
