What you think you thought I said
Was something else I said instead
You said you know what you had heard
Before I even said a word

I suspect that you were misled
My thoughts I think were just misread
I think your thoughts are just absurd
I didn’t say what you inferred

What you say I said I don’t recall
I think what you say wasn’t said at all
Your thoughts I think are undeterred
From what you think you thought you heard


About oldmainer

I am a retired manager living in Southern Maine and a would be writer of poetry, narratives, short stories, and random opinions, and that's how Oldmainer was born. Recently, I decided to try an experiment. I added photography to the mix, using only a cheap cell phone with a limited camera and the editing software that came with it, and added the blog site Inklings at to showcase the results. So, feel free to use whatever you find interesting or worthy, but please honor the terms of my copyright when and if you do. They may not be much, but they are still a piece of me. I appreciate your checking me out and hope that you find something that will encourage a return visit. Thanks for stopping by.
