The Fine Art of Moping.



Walk slowly, put your weight on one leg
Imagine a list of things to do
Imagine it can't be done
When you brush your teeth, linger at the sink
Think
Eat your food till there's three bites left then stop
Write poetry instead and wish for dessert
Pace fidget relax
Break your own heart with failures
Wear down your soul with loneliness
Go to bed early without washing your face
Wake up late and annoyed
Slow motion lather and rinse
Indecide what to wear, wear black anyway
Walk to work, slowly, and don't swing your arms

The Fine Art of Moping by sumalangitnawa is, as you can see, your personal guide to the fine art of ...Moping. You may be able to add some elements to this poets guide, but it seems they may have all been covered, "write poetry instead" of eating the last three bites of food "and wish for dessert." Oh, and how about this one, "Indecide what to wear, wear black anyway." hilariously selected by jsenn ( Featured by devart )

Yeah, I consider myself to be an amateur moper and am constantly improving myself, so this comes mighty handy. :D On the serious side, it's a great poem, with a brilliant selection of words. Though it's not perfect (and that's just according to my subjective standards), it's going to my faves.

Hahahaha...oh yes, the fine art of moping...shuffling of feet with no purpose..your description is right on the money. I love the whimsical approach. Parts were sad too, but Joy is right...it's like a study on the art of moping...a case analysis if you will.... Excellent work. :) (Smile)

don't swing your arms... that's great. sort of reminds me of those "how to be goth in less than an hour" thingies.

hahaha, this is so fantastic. I smiled until "pace figit relax" and then I started laughing. I laughed until "don't swing your arms" oh gosh, cause it had, at that point become deliberate. A study on the art of moping.....oh, gosh, I can't stop laughing, and the study continues in the reader's mind. You are an absolute wonder!!! :) (Smile)

Very very nice work!
"...Indecide what to wear, wear black anyway..."
The fact that you said indecide makes it all that much more true to the title....Loving this!
