Follow up to life's weirdness.

I have received a number of cards and letter from you readers for my last entry (along with an e-mailed copy I sent) "you like me, you really..." or better named as "life's weirdness". I feel gratified to hear so many of you responding in such droves. Well, all two of you. But...the truth is that it seemed to have struck a chord with so many of us. and my dear friend Jeff left me a message today remarking about how we are so hard on ourselves...how DARE anyone else to criticize or unlike us. I appreciate that. And Michael said you can't fool all of the people all of the time but you can fool some of the people some of the time...or something such. But it makes a lot of sense. In here (pointing to migraine headache area). Today I don't really care what people think because...(oh my god, my boss just walked in...OH MY GOOOOODDD).
The tests that I am working on for class are here and we are making great progress with the IEP versions of the computers system of reality. the model of government...Oh hi Ms. Shartz. How are you? Good thanks. I'm just working on classwork. A lot of classwork. I'm on task. heh heh (nervous).
Log off please. Back to class.

Is that the same Jeff that is Jeff LeBeau the famous movie actor? Was he the one that was in Stallion; the Sylvester Stallone story? Josh I want to meet him. Just kiddin. I didn’t know Jeff was doing so well. I’m glad that one of us is working. My night club gig fizzled. What else is new.

Dear Tony,

I wrote this poem based on your title, Stop the Noises in My Head. Tell me if you like it or if it needs work.

Stop The Noises In My Head
by
Michael Pascoe
(inspired by Tony Forkush)

Tell me, can anyone explain
All of those noises in my head?
They haunt me when I go to bed.
Just empty voices in my brain.

Those sounds are driving me insane.
They nag me of what is ahead.
Tell me, can anyone explain
All of those noises in my head?

“All you do is whine and complain
About nothing.” Who’s there I said?
Do I dare pursue what I dread?

Now I know this curse is my bane.
Please, I beg of you to explain
Why I can’t stop the noises in my head?

I can’t figure out if I should change the tenth line. Read the poem again and see if the tenth line is better this way.

Tell me, can anyone explain
All of those noises in my head?
They haunt me when I go to bed.
Just empty voices in my brain.

Those sounds are driving me insane.
They nag me of what is ahead.
Tell me, can anyone explain
All of those noises in my head?

“All you do is whine and complain
About nothing,” is all they said?
Do I dare pursue what I dread?

Now I know this curse is my bane.
Please, I beg of you to explain
Why I can’t stop the noises in my head?
