Poem for Friday and County Fair Amusements


Think
By Aretha Franklin and Ted White

You better think (think) think about what you're trying to do to me
Yeah, think (think, think), let your mind go, let yourself be free

Let's go back, let's go back, let's go way on way back when
I didn't even know you, you couldn't have been too much more than ten. (just a child)

I ain't no psychiatrist, I ain't no doctor with degrees
It don't take too much high IQ's to see what you're doing to me

You better think (think) think about what you're trying to do to me
Yeah, think (think, think), let your mind go, let yourself be free

Oh freedom (freedom), freedom (freedom), freedom, yeah freedom
Freedom (freedom), freedom (freedom), freedom, ooh freedom

There ain't nothing you could ask I could answer you but I won't (I won't)
I was gonna change, but I'm not, if you keep doing things I don't

You better think (think) think about what you're trying to do to me
Yeah, think (think, think), let your mind go, let yourself be free

People walking around everyday, playing games, taking scores
Trying to make other people lose their minds. Well be careful, you're gonna lose yours.

Yeah, think (think) think about what you're trying to do to me
Yeah, think (think, think), let your mind go, let yourself be free

You need me (need me) and I need you (don't you know)
Without each other there ain't nothing we can do

Oh freedom (freedom), freedom (freedom), freedom, yeah freedom
Freedom (freedom), freedom (freedom), freedom, ooh freedom

There ain't nothing you could ask I could answer you but I won't (I won't)
I was gonna change, but I'm not, if you're doing things I don't

You better think (think) think about what you're trying to do to me
Yeah, think (think, think), let your mind go, let yourself be free

You need me (need me) and I need you (don't you know)
Without each other there ain't nothing we can do

(Think about - ah me, think about - ah me, think about - ah me, think about it)
You had better stop and think before you think, think!

Thursday was fairly quiet until evening. I organized photos, I folded laundry, I watched pretty much every Aretha Franklin video that anyone posted. Then at 4 p.m., Registeel left the area and Regirock arrived, so I went raiding with my local group, did some trades -- now I have a near-perfect lucky Tauros, for whatever that is worth -- and caught a couple of Regirocks, plus a couple of mosquito bites!

I was hoping to watch the Deadpool 2 Super Duper Cut or something fun this evening, but Paul wanted to watch the Redskins preseason game, though after a while I insisted on catching up on this week's Burden of Truth. ABC didn't even show the Aretha 20/20 special here because of the stupid game. Here are some photos of the amusements and traditions at the county fair last weekend:
