zigzag thoughts

the lines turn to zigzag;
make a sad song
on my broken record
it plays on and on

if Adam had covered Eve
I wouldn't have existed
neither you, but we do

that leaf can vellicate our skins
but do we ever learn to save the bell?

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Vellicate: 

  • tickle: touch (a body part) lightly so as to excite the surface nerves and cause uneasiness, laughter, or spasmodic movements
  • pinch: irritate as if by a nip, pinch, or tear; "smooth surfaces can vellicate the teeth"; "the pain is as if sharp points pinch your back"

What interesting words you use. My thoughts are definitely zig-zaggy - scatterbrain, that's me.

You never know what will come of a garden. Nice usage of vallicate.

You have vellicated my interest concerning your stance on whether orr not you support blaming Eve for the downfall of mankind as the misogynistic text suggests.
If you recall, the two were not cast out because of eating the fruit, but to keep them away from the Tree of Knowledge...and this worked out quite well because look at how many Centuries it has taken mankind to overcome the mythology and gravitate towards an empirical scientific cosmology.
How do you plead?
