I Think This is a Poem

My head spins a narrative
Off it goes on another wild tangent
Make sure that you planned it,
’cause otherwise how will it go?

Pisces, Leo, it don’t make a difference,
If I can predict it, I’d much rather know
Whether it’s a good day, or if I’ll have a bad day
My life would be much simpler
if I could write it out.

Happy to live with what comes my way?
Nah, I’d rather not.
’cause if I can’t predict it, and I don’t think I planned it,
I might get hurt and that’s too much to bear.

        Good at spelling? Good at bearing your fallibility? Good at baring your feelings? Barring any further embarassment? This is the punnery, is it not?

        Maps are for people who only see getting lost as a bad thing. 🙂

        You’ve done this before, haven’t you? Not your first trip to the rodeo! Puns are my favourite part of language. This entire exchange delights me.
