Bewilderment , USA
Welcome back Professor! I see everyone's way ahead of me on this one with some excellent work, oh well, here goes.
Displaced, somewheres along the line
of gears unmeshed and thoughts untwined
parameters most ill defined,
an absent mind, an absent mind.
'twas here it seemed not long ago
now where'd that little rascal go?
Confounded little so and so,
I do not know, I do not know.
Perhaps engrossed in waking dreams ?
Illogical as that may seem,
albeit a recurring theme,
"Come back" I scream, "Come back" I scream
into a silence most profound.
Returned from who knows where was bound.
Subconcious wheels spin 'round and 'round
The lost is found, the lost is found!
"For now" it says with subtle smirk,
(impetuous, conniving jerk)
"vacation's one of this jobs perks".
How strange that works, how strange that works.
