Sunday Scribbling #202 : Ethics/Ethical

pass the peas &

pissy pots

the vermin squirm

down bourbon street

casual dalliance

the overtime brothers

in their low hung



monsters on the prowl

the vaguely allusive

the eminently


lost in the

Five and Dime

of their



bringing us


to a day of plenty

(& plenty of it)


with their mouths open

extravagantly perched

for all to see

& all to clarion

their pastoral

fashionably op-ed

Love the word "fusticants" and your neologism: "paren-ethical". One would think you don't like ethics too much, Murat.

I love the line "eschewing with their mouths open." How else does one eschew? I suppose with a toss of one's elitistly regal head and a delicate snort, but only if one is a lady.

The picture and the color and the phrase "the Five and Dime of their loose-fitting imaginations bringing us greenbacks to a day of plenty..." lead me to believe that you find ethics boards or what have you a little bit corrupt, always following the cheap party line, and unoriginal thinkers??? Not a very positive commentary of our society.

This was fun, and don't be insulted by my rambling interpretations. I might just be projecting...

I feel as thought I just took a walk in your neck of the woods.
Wishing you and yours a lovely Valentine's time~

Teresa: It starts with my own fusticating with the SS girl and their "ethics / ethical" prompt. For Valentine's Day? No projection on your part: your reads are on the money. A ranter only needs the right prompt...

Fear not, readers. No suppression here: just "removing" a repetition of the previous comment.

I think this is one of my favorites. Love love love the paren-ethical pissy pots, fusticants and eschewing with their mouths open. Lots of clanging cymbals here, trumpeting their importance - they are all peas in a pod. Rant on brother!

I enjoyed that the loose-fitting imaginations were in the Five and Dime. I saw that once, on one of those cheap mannequins lacking limbs--just a torso rising from a display table, leaving the rest to the imagination, loosely.

Dee: Glad you liked the cymbal-clashing: an easy rant target.

Sister San: I saw that rising torso, too! So much to see in the Five and Dime.
