George Held -------- Adages to live by

Geo’s New Adages (monostichs)

Impute unto others what you deny in yourself.

A pinch of strychnine saves clothesline.

An addled mind is the devil’s play station.

No good weed goes unpuffed.

An ounce of projection is worth a pound of endure.

Lenny Bruce wise and Ezra Pound foolish


  1. Hahaha lol

    A 140 count tweet is worth a thousand words...

  2. A surefire friend takes years to develop . . .

  3. Only a true poet could juxtapose Lenny Bruce wise and Ezra Pound foolish--so far out and yet spot on! Tom Livingston
