HOW do I miss these things?!!!

Last year, I came to the St Brigid party rather late. So this year it was in my diary. No danger of missing it!
Except, um, I did. (Because I was really busy and social on Saturday, and managed not to turn my pc on all day. Day off, so overrated.)
No, wait, not overrated at all! Yesterday was NOT my day off, but I was really struggling to be productive. Lots of going round in circles, lots of “meh”. Progress has been made, but it’s sort of hard to tell. Why could this be?
Turns out, it was SUPER INTERNATIONAL PYJAMA DAY! Now how could I fight global vibes like that? All wrong, I tell you. All wrong.
Sigh.
Clearly I am not equipped to take these things too seriously (and next year must prepare, complete with choosing poem, well in advance). So this nonsense-lover gives you a little bit of homespun nonsense. (With thanks to Orata for being the first to have the courage to post her own work.)
God in Wonderland
The Mock Turtle sheds another tear, and
Time sulks through another era.
Not to be outdone
God makes another universe
(Thinking, no doubt, it could be worse)
And wonders who has won,
And who will give the comfits out
And what he thought he was about
Not to keep it simple,
For the Dodo announces, looking pained,
Comfort can never be regained,
But God may keep the thimble.

  1. Thank you for posting both your own poem (yay!) and the news about international pyjama day! I’ve come late to that particular party, been bedridden all day today with some mysterious, crappy illness. Bleah. But I’m trying to think of it as a pyjama day celebration.
