Different Kind of Power

from Drawing Noise

Different Kind of Power

The cuteness is making me nauseous,

but that's ok, I'm not cautious

of these pandas playing with bamboo

and any fun sure to ensue.

There are those blind to the nature

of the cute kind,

and fail to see the bleakness

of confusing adorable for weakness.

But as strong as bamboo

can be the cute that will do

its part as it fills a heart with a

joy, negativity seeks to destroy.

I see strength in this scene,

though my first reaction seemed mean.

But I was only joking about the joy evoking 

from viewing what the pandas are doing.”
