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.

I Am A Dreamer

“Yes: I am a dreamer.

For a dreamer is

one who can only

find his way by

moonlight,

and his punishment

is that he sees

the dawn before

the rest of the world.”

.

~  Oscar Wilde

Elfje:            (Cinquain)

.

dawn

suns up

the cock crows

the milking is done

morning

.

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

.

living in a dream

the world as we want it

peaceful contentment

.

Poem:

.

love, battle, peace, confrontation
from morbid depression to ecstatic elation
the rollercoaster of relationships for many
the emotional distance between a teenager and twenty

face to face, behind the back
taking turns when going on the attack
never heard of the word compromise
keeping score, there are never any ties

rare is the ego that knows how to listen
feelings stuffed in a self imposed prison
could have, should have dominates the mind
time lost is something you will never find

steps to restore one to sane thinking
an alcoholics resolve to stop drinking
they say you can’t change horses mid-stream
but changing one’s life is more than a dream

sober children make for happy mothers
willing to be honest with self and others
a healthy relationship is not about me
a loving Higher Power will set you free
