Favorite Poet



“Must be going crazy—

my favorite poet lately

has been me!



― Wayne Kaumualii Westlake



Elfje:     (Cinquain)

best there is

could never  do without





Lightening and thunder

God’s ultimate fireworks show

highlights each season




bugs rule the world
waiting for the bug man
the eco system to be imperiled
we know it is just another scam

the roach can survive a nuclear attack
live three days without it’s head
can see where its going in the pitch black
they will be here long after man is dead

the best bugs give us silk and honey
mosquitoes and fire ants the biggest pest
centipedes give us a run for our money
their goal is the whole wide world to infest

certain aboriginals do the larva eat
some pay good money for chocolate covered ants
I’m not quite certain I’d call them a treat
I will not go out of my way to give them a chance

no itching or scratching
it only makes things worse
just think of the millions now hatching
believe, Nature’s plan is not a curse

protect all life (maybe) as holy
and it is still fine to feed the fish
to eliminate the moths who make us holey
believe me, my favorite sound is still …. squish

ME and the Boss
