More Useful

.

“The poet

must be

more useful

than any

other member

of his tribe.”

.

Comte de Lautréamont

Elfje: (Cinquain)

.

tribe
his kin
your own folk
our band with pride
clan

Tanka: 5,7,5 7,7 syllables

scent was in the air
met a pie man goin’ where
to the county fair

one a penny hot crossed bun
a pun can be so much fun

.

Poem:

.

it was a full moon, what a scare
heard noises but nothing was there
men in wolves clothing were howling
the old wives faces were scowling

the shining brought out the lunatic
tricks to be played on the local dipstick
lore propagated by the areas monsters
what evils lurk in the deep ponds waters

souls revisiting on all hallows eve
reminders for those left to greave
could the cow jump over the moon
lovers taking the time to spoon

the moon is such a wonderful topic
except for those who are totally myopic

Gone Mad

.

“Have I gone mad?

I’m afraid so,

but let me tell

you something,

the best people

usually are.”

.

~ Lewis Carroll

.

Elfje:            (Cinquain)

.

mad

mind slipped

away from reality

irresponsible inappropriate social behaviors

crazy

.

Senryu:      5-7-5 ( Haiku with people and their emotions/feelings as a topic)

.

heart felt petty love

the verge of insanity

the reason to love

.

Poem:

.

memories invade the silence
the noise keeps the mind out of balance
could have, should have, what if
just too close to the edge of the cliff

the brain chemistry is out of whack
another manic depressive paranoiac
diagnosed with an eccentric personality disorder
thoughts replayed by a broken tape recorder

fits all the criteria for a disease
always getting worse by degrees
fatal to the victim before their time
often ahead of or when in their prime

the fortunate are prescribed a magic potion
an elixir that does not destroy the emotion
the mind fights back and becomes immune
new cocktails needed before the next full moon

lives lived in constant confusion
what is real and what is a delusion
the lucky become great artist or poets
institutions for those on the scale the lowest

drawing the fine line between crazy and genius
victims coming from a population that is heterogeneous
the mind is a terrible thing to waste
or was it the soul that has been misplaced

prayers that science may find a solution
man could disappear waiting for evolution
the Great Creator may have His reasons
why every person is fighting their own demons

in the meantime try to be civilized
most people are not as advertised
