tie-dye and time lords
It’s the last post of the Blog Swap, and I had tinkered with the idea of writing a grand and glorious article to finish out the trio… but then I went to Montana, where I am currently enjoying grand and glorious mountains against which my writing pales.
You may blame the honourable John Ryan for suggesting the topic of “ungracious ranting”.
Why I Find Tie-Dye So Annoying
At first plunge, preceding the baffling stuff,
I tell you that tie-dye is ugly at best.
Applauded by summer camp leaders and such
(Because it’s the kids who take home the whole mess)
Whenever I see its bright splotches and smears
I think (besides summer camps) of a smashed earth.
Like some crazy psycho made play-doh of trees
And water and tore up his whole backyard turf.
It’s also disturbing. An insult to eyes
That ‘specially appreciate thought-over art.
Remember the summer camps that seize tie-dye
As a desperate distraction (bad choice on their part).
But the most absurd thing about tie-dye, by far,
Is the fact that all my fine rantings up top
Can also be used to support and affirm
The same loony pattern! We spin till we stop.
(This post has nothing whatsoever to do with Time Lords. I just stuck that in the title to make it more interesting.)
