OH! The THINKS I Won't Think!

December 22, 2014

I won't think of 

       a THINK

That's what I won't do

 I won't think up a think until

          I've thunk it through

Oh! The THINKS I won't think

     I won't even think why

          If I try

          I just might

                                      Let a think pass me by

I won't think about Cuba

     Or think about drones

               I wont think about why

                              folks can't talk without phones


No I won't even stop

to think about race

          or if chokeholds are legal......or Michael Brown's face


          About Roger Goodell

                   and the whole NFL

                   Or if women can tell

                                                       If they're rats

                                                       or just mice

                  I won't think about Ray

                  If I think about rice

                  Although Jerry is nice!


     I won't think about planes




                                  the sky

I won't think about ISIS

I think you know why


          I won't think about Putin

or what's in his brain

When he thinks we don't know

      Moscow's not in Ukraine


I won't think a long time

     About booty or base

Or the way that Bill Cosby


       fallen from grace

I won't think  

No I won't. No I won't. No I won't!

        If I said that I don't ....then it means that I don't!!!

Not shouldn't...I wouldn't

I simply can't say

There's a statute of something on thinking today

Oh, I wish I could think

        of a THINK not so phony

Or think of a way to 

       keep secrets from Sony (shhhh)

But since I'm not thinking

                                     I'll call it baloney.


I won't think about Congress or Oscar Pistorious

               OH! What a day!

Isn't NOT THINKING glorious!

           No THINKS about mudslides

           or vortexing poles

or Fitbits or whatzits? or

           car-eating holes

No selfies or Buzzfeeds

      or Benders or Snaps

              If you stop all that thinking 

you'll get a good nap! zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz


Don't think about hackers or airplane hijackers

 or Sons of Anarchy with billionaire backers

          Think NOT about thinking

          It's the best THINK of all

Some people stop thinking the minute you call


OH! the THINKs I won't think

You would think it would bore me

                      But why should I think

                                When the news does it for me!
