Brain weasels chatter rudely
Changing subjects midsentence.
Keeping so many thoughts deftly
Swirling in perfect balance
Is harder than it appears.
A juggling act of epic
Proportions, by vague puppeteers,
Meanspirited and choleric.
Forgetfulness a necessary
Defense against vicious lies
Meant to keep life unhealthy
Upended, disturbed otherwise.
These are cautionary tales,
To not believe each negative thing
You’re thinking, when all else fails
Even less of what you’re dreaming
Be gentle with your fragile heart
Listen to your own wise counsel
Set your despairing thoughts apart
See the truth for what it is, unsinkable
Brain weasels aren’t that smart
