Can't Put the Pen Down…

Ear Worm

My brain is like a two year old
who’s learned a brand new trick
and the song that it’s repeating
is going to make me sick.

It’s not that it’s a bad song
or one that’s not deserving
of airplay, but three days straight
is getting quite unnerving.

Every time I stop to think
my brain’s new song is playing,
my health’s begun to suffer
and my sanity is fraying.

It seems the only chance of peace
is taking drastic action
and teaching brain another song
as some form of distraction.

And though I know my one track brain
will just switch songs, at best.
At this point I believe a change
is as good as a rest.


Earworm, Earworm,
measuring my sanity.
You and your repeating tune
are going to drive me mad.

Earworm, Earworm,
measuring my sanity
This is the result, it seems,
when melodies go bad.


Dilly Dilly Dumpling Free

I rose this morn with a silly song
wending through my noggin’.
It echoed ‘round, lobe to lobe,
my memory all a’joggin’.

and Dilly Dilly Dumpling Free
was the absurd refrain.
Dilly Dilly Dumpling Free
bouncing ‘round my brain.

Now I like dill and dumplings too
as much as anyone
But can’t imagine why I’d think
to put them in a song!

and Dilly Dilly Dumpling Free
was the crazy chorus
Dilly Dilly Dumpling Free
the words do nothing for us

but confuse the questions, like
why are the dumplings free?
and why can’t I recall the verse
or what it means to me?

Oh Dilly Dilly Dumpling Free
I’m doomed to sing the rhyme
Dilly Dilly Dumpling Free
if I sing it enough times

Dilly Dilly Dumpling Free
you’ll catch the contagion
Dilly Dilly Dumpling Free
in your imagination.

Dilly Dilly Dumpling Free
tomorrow, the ditty spreads
and Dilly Dilly Dumpling Free
will be echoing in your heads!
