Discordant Symphony

Cacophonous morning conversation
competes in mind-numbing decibels
over the din of hairdryers,
showers, electric razors,
Pop-Tarts jettisoning
from the toaster,
and the
tortuous

s

of
the
coffee
pot.
Monosyllabic mumbo-jumbo, the
Twenty-First century equivalent
of Neanderthal’s primal grunt,
has become a recognized
American dialect essential
to our very survival.
Auditory mayhem, as
dehumanizing and
abhorrent as any
crime, follows
closely our
tintinnabular
awakening.

The world is too much with us…. Indeed!
