I split myself in two


Sometimes,you will be astounded to read, I get bored.

As a middle aged puddle splasher  boredom is actually quite difficult to achieve.

So I split myself in two.


I’m not a complete fool.

I’m a wholewit not a halfwit.

As soon as I did it – I  realised – out of the two of us  – I didn’t know which was the real me.

Two’s a crowd


I was only one of them at any one time.

Whichever one I was. I really didn’t like the other one.

That guy had problems.

I just didn’t like the way he did things.

You know when you get that feeling about someone?

I didn’t tell him but I tried to undermine everything he did.

I enjoyed it when things didn’t go right for him.

I liked seeing him suffer.


Then I remembered that day I was bored.

It was me all along.

The Swap


I tried being the other guy for a bit.

I found the other me was even worse.

We did agree on one thing.

The old me – we both hated.

The other guy was an idiot.

I’ve turned into a complete blonker.

However, I still use the wisdom of Solomon. 

Why this blonkers blog? 

I just happened to think of an old poem I wrote, and turned it into this post.

Quite a feat as I don’t remember anything usually.

I split myself in two,played the one against the other

to try and see who would win,

Then,when I discovered, that we were one another,

I had to start all over again.

  1. Liking the thought that you both hated the old you and thought the other guy was an idiot.
    Great stuff 😀
    Is there an application for membership or some sort of initiation to join the middle aged puddle splashers club?
