My wandering thoughts

Would you think I'm nuts
If I thought outside the box
Or would you take flight
At my humorous plight
Einstein,I pretended to be
Full of knowledge ,an mystery
Undoubtedly I'm way too busy
So ,I took another hobby
Now I'm a Merlyn Monroe
Submitting no qualifications to show
Except lipstick an hips intact
Beseeching  for my role
It's these cold,savage pieces
That drove me to home
The chilling,yet curious scenes that
Transformed me into, Sherlock Holmes
Please keep these heroes in the books
I am  no hero,maybe a crook
Mastered the level of being me
Idle an comfy completely

    I too am a firm believer in thinking outside the box and I too believe it will take legions of such thinkers to figure out my simple salad…But then again what do I know about salads???Oh and then again there are those times one must think inside the box as well…Case in point…The simple solution to y2k nobody could solve…
