The Plight of McGoo


Grandeur    ©2007  Ron Dahle


Poor McGoo, I tried to get him to write a fresh ISM and he won’t. He is hiding in his hole underground and feels that every time he starts to emerge he gets kicked back into his hole and stomped on, he says at times he is almost ready to say screw it and give up.  You see it is a funny world he lives in. He has been accused of not being in touch with the realities of life. That may be true, but one must look at life the way he does. McGoo’s world is one of vibrant energy, beauty, love, truthfulness, compassion and harmony. No wonder he is so hard to buy into, as there is precious little of any of these characteristics in most people. When he hears people say he is not in touch with reality all he can feel is sorrow, for he knows that the truth of the matter is that “so called” reality is not in touch with him, what a shame! He has problems apologizing for being truthful, having compassion, looking for the good in things, finding beauty (wherever it is hiding), and seeking love. Try as he may, he can’t find the problem with these traits, however he realizes that the world isn’t ready for him yet, so he is seeking the refuge of his hole wanting oh so bad to emerge and be taken as real for he knows who he is and the greatness of his heart and soul, wanting only to share them. True it is a foolish dream when ones main goals in life are finding love and sharing. And that is a shame! And such is the plight of McGoo.

    McGoo has been around for quite awhile, but I’m new to gettin’ to know McGoo. Out of touch, seems to mean: Not going with the flow. There’s a lot of propaganda in the world and many people willing to be brain washed.

    I think the isms are for McGoo, and the words he uses to express his isms are for people to enjoy. From what a person writes, people take what they want.

    I’m not the best example of anything, but no one is. If a person can’t be a sheep, they may as well do what pleases ’em.

    And heavens forbid anyone ever equating me to a sheep. Not in this life anyways. Have a great day Vonda.
