The Answer is "Antidepressants"

A Poem

By Brynne NelsonPublished about a year ago Updated about a year ago 1 min read
Top Story - December 2022

I dreamt of cucumberous folks

Who referred to each other as “blokes.”

Yes British cucumbers,

A townful I numbered.

Such creative thoughts sleeping can coax!

Yet, weirder it quickly became:

The ‘cumbers’ relations I blame.

These pickled cowboys

Rode on crackers for joys.

Not to tell the tale would be a shame.

So cousins, both pickled and non,

Ran ‘round in my head ‘til the dawn.

I woke with a grin;

Such a dream has no twin!

What a sleep! Now, what drugs was I on?

    This unique and imaginative work paints a whimsical picture of a dream world populated by British cucumbers who refer to each other as "blokes." The poem takes a surreal turn as the author imagines pickled cowboys riding crackers, showcasing the poet's playful creativity. The poem ends with a tongue-in-cheek musing about what could have inspired such a dream, making for a charming and entertaining read. The author's vivid use of language and imaginative storytelling make this poem a joy to experience.

    As a chic on Prozac, I respect the cucumbers. Some days, I feel like a few chopped tomatoes and servings of feta cheese away from an awesome Greek Salad. 😆
