Thought in any direction
Oh, all the signs are there.
But we can’t figure out where it is.
Just go home and come back in three or four months and maybe it’ll be big enough for us to find it.
Everything says it’s cancer, but they can’t tell him where it is?
Maybe we’ll have more luck after it grows a bit?
Is that fun or what?
There are limits to human knowledge and abilities.
People don’t like to admit that.
Want to blame someone.
The raging against the Universe.
But from that torquing earthshaking answers can belched up out of the muck.
“What if …” morphs into “this works. What’s next?”
Creative thought in the past has driven this country.
In garages, in dirt fields, in unfocused eyes
There’s velcro, memory foam mattresses, weapons against diseases – even water roller coasters flowing uphill.
Feedstock for thought:
Discomfort, need, and whimsy, too.
Too much thought? Can lead to thoughtlessness.
(Think about that if you can. Some can’t.)
Desiring the easy way out?
Those profit seeking companies and institutions: mindless of damaging thought potential?
Pick an answer between “A”, “B”, or “C”. Only these.
No room for variations or seeing around the curve: just A,B, or C.
No room for challenges, explorations, expansions, or leaping-light-years-ahead discoveries
No room for the answers mankind needs.
More than Dull: death in a mental straight jacket.
As dangerous as any cancer.
As dangerous as an earthquake for any civilization.
A danger to survival of a species, ours.
A penny for your thoughts.
(Well, maybe a bit more these days for intellectual properties.)
Thought and Profit: odd partners.
Dependent on one another
Still, thoughts move mountains.
So guess one moved one Doctor.
It was there – where he just thought to look – although there weren’t any tell-tale signs – yet.
Lucky. Usually once found, it’s too late.
No way to destroy it. Can’t fix it. But have halted it – for now.
He just thought.
And you should too.

A fleeing thought:
While support of the arts is nice, Big Bird is reduced to enjoying bird seed, and some have decided to poke around in other countries’ business, what about folding more tax money into cancer research?
Hate to see those researchers moving over seas and taking all that intellectual potential with them.
Just a thought,
Phil, the Philosopher Mouse of the Hedge.
Thought for the day? Toss those cigarettes. Oh, yeah, lungs – but they “repair” themselves some once you quit. But the bladder doesn’t – and smoking is one of only 2 ways of getting bladder cancer…which is almost impossible to detect before it’s fatal. And it’s not “might get” – it’s simply “when?” if you smoke. So give it a thought.
Second thoughts? Grab the hat, always use sunscreen, and lip balm with sunscreen. Avoid melanoma and look younger, too. Win-win! Second that!
Don’t be thoughtless.
