What Is The Question ? ? ?

to know some

of the questions

than all of

the answers.”

first crop is ready to pick
enough sun and rain

Poem:

.

there is this kitten from hell
all he does is very loudly yell
a needy cat all he wants is attention
the energy level is from another dimension

the cat in the mirror is his newest toy
full steam ahead, no need to be coy
such a little thing with such a loud purr
so much life in that small ball of fur

always in trouble, too much curiosity
to the family he is a source of jocosity
no, no, let go of that curtain
looks like he’ll need all nine lives that is for certain

will we still love him when he becomes a cat ? ? ?
probably, as long as he doesn’t become a bureaucrat

At or Through

“Consider the difference

between the first and

third person in poetry

[…]

It’s like the difference

between looking at a person

and looking through their eyes.”

viewpoint

an opinion

happy, happy cat

immersed in his own world

cool, like really hip

Poem:

.

there was a man, he wasn’t from Limerick
his manners and attitude were prehistoric
couldn’t tell if he was drunk or not
brain cells burned, he was a crackpot

did he drink until he was crazy
was his brain always that hazy
or was he crazy and drank too much
alcohol was his emotional crutch

Judge finally said enough is enough
tired of putting up with all the funny stuff
attend some meetings or go to jail
easy decision so he got out on bail

found the rooms, did as he was told
followed the suggestions his life to remold
silly turned out to be his sense of humor
cleaned up he did not appear to be an ex boozer

this was a man whose first life was satirical
given a second life that proved to be a miracle
became a good example by attending meetings
enjoying his new life with sincere honest feelings

his message was one of hope for everyone
if he could do it, it can be done by anyone
