60,000 Thoughts – (Six Sentence Story #156)
Sixty thousand thoughts every day,
So many of them, unrequited.
Effervescent energy at play,
Pop in, and out again, excited.
Every once in a while, one will reign
And will need a little thinking through,
Unlike the bubbles in pink champagne
That only last a second, or two.
Not all remaining are quite so great,
Keep those that are … post, rugged rigour.
Following that pros and cons debate,
Discard those that fail, with much vigour.
They have no value, just take up room;
Where, more fertile thoughts could better bloom.
