Purple's Platitudes

nothing but words …

in praxis

09 March 2014

 

 

in theory,

life should come with

batteries included …

 

in theory,

life should come with

an intelligible instruction manual,

preferably illustrated …

 

in theory,

life should come with

all necessary parts included,

none defective …

 

in theory,

life should come with

an extended warranty,

a money back guarantee,

or at least

an affordable replacement plan …

 

in theory,

life should come with

a magic wand,

three wishes,

a happy ever after …

 

but in praxis …

 

(written for Jeremy Farmer’s Weekend Medley)
