Pandora at it again ~ ©️

“PANDORA’S BOX(es) REVISITED!” a poem for Monday – 29 July 2019

“Pandora’s Box”* has demons, the worst you’ll ever find:

Fears! Hate! & Jealousy! They’re all-things-of-The-Mind!

Plus, Disdain and-lots-of-Carelessness-with-feelings-&-dispositions;

DEMONS! FLYING EVERYWHERE, ON IN-FILTRATING MISSIONS!

AND-WITH-ENOUGH-ANGST TO-MAKE-YOU-SCREAM;

IT IS FOR HOPE THAT WE ALL DREAM,

TO MAKE THOSE MONSTERS GO AWAY;

THE MIND!! HOPES – FOR ANOTHER DAY,

AND-A- BETTER WAY – AND COMFORT TOO!

BUT-THE-MIND-WILL-NEVER-BRING-IT-HERE-TO-YOU!

PANDORA! PANDORA! WHAT HAVE YOU DONE?

(ALL THESE DEMONS-AREN’T TOO MUCH FUN!)

RELAX, MY DEAR, AND EASE YOUR MIND;

IT IS “IN LOVE” THAT YOU WILL FIND,

RELIEF FROM THIS-HERE “BAD” COMMOTION;

LOVE’S A SALVE, A SOOTHING LOTION!

‘TIS OF-THE-HEART WHERE HOPE RESIDES;

IF-THE-MIND-WILL-PAUSE, THE HEART JUST GLIDES!

YOU-SEE, I AM – WITH-DEMONS INVESTED,

& ALSO YOU – WITH-WHOM I ‘ M “NESTED!”

EACH OF US: (ARE) “PANDORA’S BOX,”

& WE HAVE MINDS, JUST JAMMED WITH “POX!”

WE FOCUS-SO-MUCH ON ALL OUR FEARS,

TO-MAKE-US-ENGAGE IN MANY TEARS,

UNTIL RELAXING-LOVE SMILES BRIGHT,

& HOPE & COURAGE COME-INTO-SIGHT!

HOPE’S SO EASY, IF-YOU’LL RE-LAX,

AND DISREGARD “THE PARALLAX!”

WE TWO BOXES, HAPPY-CAN-BE-,

IF WE RELAX, THEN LOVE WE’LL SEE!

THEN, THE-LIGHT-OF-HOPE – WILL-DISPEL ALL “THESE,”

MISCHIEVOUS DEMONS! (IN-LOVE, WORRIES-CEASE!)

POSTNOTE[S]: &-Y’-KNOW, THERE’RE-DEMONS YOU DON’T THINK ABOUT, [LIKE] SELF-CRITICISM-LOATHING-&-HATE, * AND-DEPENDENCIES-OVER-WORKING-OVER-SPENDING-&-THINKING-YOU-CAN-NEVER BE LATE! * AND “RELIGIOUS PRIDE,” THINKING WHAT YOU DO’S BETTER THAN THE REST, * & LOOKING ON SOMEONE’S PAPER, THINKING THAT’S THE ONLY WAY TO PASS A TEST, * A TEST NOT REALLY THAT IMPORTANT, BUT YOU’RE TAUGHT EDUCATION’S SACROSANCT! * AND LETTING MEAN PEOPLE GET TO YOU, BECAUSE “YOUR CHAIN” THEY’VE YANKED! * AND – JUST PLAIN BEING MEAN, TO KIDS – OR CATS – OR OLD MEN WITH HATS! * OR CUTTING IN LINE BECAUSE YOU’RE IN A HURRY, * BECAUSE YOUR “BOSS” HAS ONLY GIVEN YOU HALF AN HOUR FOR LUNCH!-OR: EATING CURRY, * BECAUSE SOMEONE ELSE THINKS IT’S A GOOD IDEA! * OR GOING VEGAN! SO LET ME MAKE A PLEA-A * JUST SO YOU’LL KNOW, THERE’S NO ADVICE SO FINE, * THAT IT NULLIFIES WHAT YOU LIKE TO DO, LIKE TO DRINK A LITTLE BEER OR WINE!

A little alcohol’s probably OK, but it’s-a-sure-thing somebody’s-gonna-say:

“Abstinence is The Best Policy – FOR-BASICALLY-ALL-THINGS!?”

And – it’s probably NOT ESSENTIAL (in marriage) to have diamond rings,

BUT IF YOU WANT ONE, that-too-is-probably-OK,

As long as if someone REALLY wants it, you can just give it away!

  • – Pandora’s box is an artifact in Greek mythology connected with the myth of Pandora in Hesiod’s Works and Days.[1] The container mentioned in the original story was actually a large storage jar but the word was later mistranslated as “box”.In modern times an idiom has grown from it meaning “Any source of great and unexpected troubles”,[2] or alternatively “A present which seems valuable but which in reality is a curse”.[3] Later depictions of the fatal container have been varied, while some literary and artistic treatments have focused more on the contents of the idiomatic box than on Pandora herself.
