about

Morphodite - one under the influence of Morpheus, Greek God of dreams/dreaming (Morphine, etc...) i.e. a fool, dreamer, idiot, etc...

This is a word that has been commonly used in my family for as long as I can remember... so much so that I casually used it in a song. It has come to my attention, however, that the more common definition of this word is:
slang for hermaphrodite. Oops.
I am not a hermaphrodite. Not that there's anything wrong with that.

What if all you are is...?

Morphodite - a follower of Morpheus, Greek God of dreams/dreaming (Morphine, etc...) i.e. a fool, dreamer, idiot, etc...

This is a word that has been commonly used in my family for as long as I can remember... so much so that I casually used it in a song. It has come to my attention, however, that the more common definition of this word is: slang for hermaphrodite. Oops.
I am not a hermaphrodite. Not that there's anything wrong with that.

Well you wake up in the morning feeling chipper and unvincible - its friday and you've got the weekend off...
One more day of work and you can disappropriate your time to something more productive, perhaps cleaning out your garage.
Your day is ineventful and your evening is unconsequential: eating taco salad in your second favorite chair...
Tomorrow will be saturday and there's so much on TV - you just can't help but be incited at the passion in the air.

But what if all you are is just a sub-par, junior, member of a silly, little, pugilistic tribe?
A horribly inconsequential, little fly upon the wall, struggling through its wretched life to blindly procreate and die?
Heedlessly consuming all the feculent regurgitations mindlessly presented on TV...
Then vomiting that same, miasmic, dull, misinformation into tepid conversation with some morphodite - like me.

Your weekend passes quickly - packed with titillating hours of social media and junk food and reality tv...
Your avatar is winning - so you're posting and you're tweeting to the world - how great your life is and how jealous they should be.
Your newsfeed offers photos of catastrophes and crises that are unfolding in places you don't know or care exist;
But you're busy pushing papers, crunching numbers and statistics and you don't have time to worry about the headlines that you missed.

But what if all you are is just a sub-par, junior, member of a silly, little, pugilistic tribe?
A horribly inconsequential, little fly upon the wall, struggling through its wretched life to blindly procreate and die?
Heedlessly consuming all the feculent regurgitations mindlessly presented on tv...
Then vomiting that same miasmic, dull, misinformation into tepid conversation with some morphodite - like me.
