Social Butterfly

I'm back on dry land once again
Opportunity awaits me like a rat in a drain
We're all hunting honey with money to burn
Just a short time to show you
The tricks that we've learned

Sweet Painted Lady-Elton John

"Up On The Roof" - Drifters

 

"When this old world starts getting me down
And people are just too much for me to face
I climb way up to the top of the stairs
And all my cares just drift right into space
On the roof, it's peaceful as can be
And there the world below can't bother me"

Now I know you’re not the only starfish in the sea

There's a man with a gun over there
Telling me I got to beware

 

C'mon there are commercials for supplemental antidepressants (that means they don't replace, they are ADDED TO existing medications) on the T.V..  A naturally occurring event, The Pandemic, is blamed for the design and implementation failings of 'The Economy', a manufactured reality, that is changeable and adaptable.

...Oh well, it's Wednesday...guess it's time to get over it.
