The Line Is Drawn

.

“I think it’s the duty

of the comedian

to find out where

the line is drawn

and cross it deliberately.”

.

~ George Carlin

Elfje:         (Cinquain)

laugh

bad jokes

silly faux pas

clowns, sidemen and slapstick

funny

Lune:    5 / 3 / 5

blooming spring blossoms

pollen falls

air to thick to breathe

Poem:

.

Visa V

rare is the bean that flavors vanilla
most exclusive to the court of Victoria
grown from the orchid flower, not the Iris
they add egg to their cream in Paris

it is the sugar not the chocolate
eight ball in the side pocket
never kind enough to mother dear
breakfast of champions a bagel schmear

funny how the poem writes
it’s limits knows no heights
every word exhibits its own emotion
subtle innuendo or crazy comotion

the poem waits patiently to be written
knowing that the writer has been bitten
the topic as usual, life, love or death
do yourself a favor, don’t hold your breath

life being lived in a no man’s land
lovers walking hand in hand
death is usually unplanned

now the poem has covered all of the topics
time to get my hands out of my pockets.

From A Vernal Wood

.

.

“One impulse from a vernal wood

May teach you more of man,

Of moral evil and of good,

Than all the sages can.”

Poem:

.

alas, that man no longer learns
what Nature so gladly teaches
how survival of the fittest turns
a slow evolution of our features

nature has been displaced by city jungles
man’s attitude influenced by race and religion
majority of concerns regard daily struggles
billions ignorant about nuclear fission

pollution encroaches upon Walden’s pond
oceans clogged by plastic litter
stupid believes the cure is a government bond
or maybe the magic of a presidential twitter

Chicago’s sounds come from gunshots
birds gave up singing long ago
San Francisco’s sanctuary is tied in knots
innocent victims and narcotics dough

Paris riots over global warming
religious radicals causing much woe
Los Angeles is draining the Colorado
extremist need to go with the flow

today is your chance to cure the burn
breath deep, breath slow
find a bad habit to overturn
learn from nature which way to go
