-looking for work is hard work-
-looking for work is hard work-
Her mind was a flashlight broken.
We waited all year
Our plans were all set,
We waited in line
To board that big jet.
A tall woman walked over,
And asked for ID-
I sarcastically asked
Are you talking to me?
The taste of that carpet
Was dog crap I’m sure–
Next holiday season
I’ll be more mature!
If you plan to come and sit?
Shall I bore you with my rhetoric
Or dazzle you with wit?
Should you enjoy my company
Shall you visit me again
If you invite me to return
Will you appear insane?
Should I hold back on intros
Or should I call your name?
Should I hold close my secret desires
And say you never came?
For it is with my eyes wide shut
That I must say to you
I’ve wrapped you in my latest web
As all black widows do~~~
growing old together…
holding hands as one watches the other die…
Was It Love?
Oh, but can the pain of a burden so heavy as deceit
Be cleared away so easily
With the mere touch of a soft hand to a wet cheek
Or the mere whisper of a sensuous word to a closed ear?
A burden of such magnitude,
A burden of such deformed placement,
A burden of such seemingly occult origin
Must be a burden of an offensive and doomed destination.
To say it will resolve itself,
To say it can be at all resolved
Is to say that you believe in more than miracles –
It is to say that witchcraft and sorcery are at the root of your being
Or has lov been falsely used and accused
A victimized self created deceit
In and of itself
throughout the duration of its unbeing.
to have perfect pitch
is as the saying goes a
stitch in time saves nine
I went through the alphabet and wrote the first word that came to mind in alphabetical order then I put them into a poem. I think it’s pretty funny. Read it and reply…

As an alternative to dinner
we decided on the barracuda
which turned out to be a real catastrophe.
Without a full dramatization
of the eventful season we had, simply put,
we have been forever faithful to the cause.
Albeit gruesome or gross,
there were no concerns of harmful fish bones,
and we were jubilant when we
looked into the kaleidoscope
to find a lemon yellow redfish
with the personality of a maniac.
Much to our delight when took the fish to Norway we were
pleasantly surprised at the opulent and fanciful ways of the people.
We were extremely precise in our movements
around this quirky little town
not wanting to attract any resentful stares
while parading around in our shameful ways with our fish.
Our tantalizing habits drew much scorn
which was an unfortunate way impress others.
But our victory was won when we
walked into the room
and heard a xylophone play in the distance and
had to resist our yearning to
overpower the townspeople with more zany written rhetoric.
Playing hopscotch is my favorite game
To play outside with my friends
We jump, we hop, we toss our rock
Until one of us wins!
Ok everyone, I recently became a member of a poetry “club” and today I decided to enter a contest sponsored by one of the members.
The title of the contest is “Only Homo’s Allowed”
The word homo is from the Greek word meaning same and according to Wikipedia a homophone is a word that is pronounced the same as another word but differs in meaning, and may differ in spelling. The words may be spelled the same, such as rose (flower) and rose (past tense of “rise”), or differently, such as carat, caret, and carrot, or to, two, and too
Ok, here are the instructions:
“What I want is at least 10 lines or more
Any form is acceptable. But funny is always better
You must include as many Homophones as you can, If
buy chance you include a word that could have been a
Homophone and missed it, you will be N/A
There will be one first, second and third place only
Thank you and good Luck”
So here goes nothing…(let me know what you think)
