A Dormant Poet

“Know that there

is often hidden

in us a dormant poet,

always young and alive.”

~ Alfred De Musset-Pathay 

Elfje: Cinquain



nature sleeping

frozen in time

all the world quiescent





fear made him strike out

it was mock sabre rattling

feigned anger and rage




glorious flights of fantasy
having fun ignoring reality
this world is just too damn serious
everyone trying to solve the mysterious

was it a giggle or was it a snicker
candy is dandy but liquor is quicker
only the normal claim to be normal
you must be a God to say you’re immortal

every day is a good day for a party
just ask the big pooka named Harvey
no reason is ever needed to celebrate
all that is required is a few people to congregate

it is the happier occasions we love to keep
all those things and a good nights sleep
double the fun, lets have a tag team match
just remember where they put the escape hatch

having so much fun, wish this could go on forever
if not, we’ll quote the granddaughter, “Whatever.”
