You never know who's watching

Be on your best behavior and you won't have to worry about it...

PAD #10, a different perspective (perfect for twisty me!)

The Fly on the Wall
 
I hear the plots,
The plans, the schemes.
 
I see the thoughts
Acted out, the dreams
Carried out, the masks
Fought about, the tasks
Forgot about.
 
I see the tears,
The sadness, the woe.
 
I smell the fears
Of failing to go
On sailing ahead,
And wailing of dread,
Arms flailing
 
The best thing I smell
Is happiness baking
 
Sweet good news to tell
Hear joyous noise-making
And boistrous hee haws
Midst anxious guffaws
Such curious 

Creatures

That was kinda creepy... I liked it! It made me think of The Labyrinth and the little goblins watching and waiting. I dunno why. I think I need to watch the movie again. : )

I like the first quote. Really, we should expect no less from ourselves.

AHHH! This may be one of my favorites. I'm going to pretend it doesn't include spiders though. Very cool. I always wish I could be a fly on a wall.
