E PLURIBUS MEUM–(after taking too many Facebook quizzes)

an old one that still applies:

 

E  PLURIBUS MEUM

(after taking too many Facebook quizzes)

Of course King David

had lots in common with Ophelia.

Both liked to sing.

Both had difficult boyfriends

involved in dark plots.  Both

had trouble handling loss.

And Ophelia and the King

had a kind of I-Love-

Lucy approach to life–

plunge right in.

It doesn’t matter if

you don’t have the right clothes.

But John Locke?

Well now, he pulls me all

together, with his belief

that everyone starts clean

and accumulates layers

of life, like laughs or

petticoats, or kingdoms

and complicated wives.
