Creativity creates something out of nothing.

Destructivity creates nothing out of something.

It is the opposite of creativity.

What goes up must come down;

everything has a season;

even the leaves must fall.

We have trained ourselves to believe

Looking for something to watch on television

is worse than doing nothing.

and remember who sends the invitation.

I absolutely abhor wasting time;

to send myself on a fruitless

was designed to remain

forever empty of all but now

can only be fully understood

by a sufferer of acid reflux.

But now the episode is over,

and my angered heart rate has calmed.

Now is here again

and I can breathe.

What more is needed?

I issue another invitation–

only Holiness need reply,

Peace is a party for One.
