The Mystery Is?


I just played around with some titles and lines and threw them together and tried to play on words here and there. Part of reading will be trying to see if you know the movie referred to in the stanza. That should give a little more to the reader other than just lines of words. Its just for fun, not a serious piece, because Friday is Fun Day.

The mystery is,
What if I had taken the blue pill?
Is ignorance really bliss?

The mystery is,
What if my father had not been shot that night,
Would I still be Batman?

The mystery is,
If you never said Betelgeuse 3 times,
Would I really exist?

The mystery is,
When I said “I’ll be back”,
Did I ever return?

The mystery is,
When I asked you to make my day punk,
Did you?

The mystery is,
What if Sam didn’t play it again,
Would time still go by?

The mystery is,
If I frankly didn’t give a damn,
Would you still have Gone with the Wind?

The mystery is,
If in space, no one can hear you scream,
Did you?

The mystery is,
Are you talkin’ to me? Are you talkin’ to me?
Then who the fuck were you talkin’ to?

The mystery is,
If you prayed for a quick death, which you didn’t get,
Would I be Blonde?

The mystery is,
I don’t know half of you half as well as I should like, and I like less than half of you half as well as you deserve.
Would I still wear a ring?

The mystery is,
If Mickey told Mallory she was a natural,
Would they still have been born killers?
