More Cleverly

.

“Writing is learning

to say nothing,

more cleverly

each day.”

.

~ William Allingham

Elfje:            (Cinquain)

.

innuendo

nasty insinuation

bearer of misinformation

who started the rumor

gossip

.

Tanka:             5-7-5, 7-7

.

quick to parse your word

ever looking for excuse

to misinterpret

 

negative side of the coin

sabotaging the meaning

 

.

Poem:

.

had a wonderful dream
the start of my best poem yet
can’t remember shit

was it set beside a babbling stream
was it a place where we all met
thinking I’m going to throw a fit

was it to include a unique scheme
were you playing Russian roulette
time to sing john james jingleheimer schmidt

was I riding on a sunbeam
need to tie my brain to the ethernet
sorrow deserves another banana split

need to collect my thoughts on a particle beam
bad habit, old age, I forget
maybe tomorrow, I’ll remember shit

The Most Powerful Drug

 

I am, by calling,

a dealer in words;

and words are,

of course,

the most powerful drug

used by mankind.”

.

Rudyard Kipling

.

 

Elfje:         (Cinquain)

.

drug

chemical influence

brain neurons interrupted

abnormal escape from reality

dope

.

Lune:    5 / 3 / 5

.

reading the fake news

politics

opinions galore

.

Poem:

.

April showers brings May pollen
the early worm evades the robin
nature both gives and takes away
man gifted by a beautiful bouquet

can we ruin it all with plastic pollution
are there consequences for fooling evolution
when man has expired there will be no more time
there will be no winners to punish the crime

hopefully we’ll find where the soul resides
nature will overcome those pesticides
the philosophers will discover what it is
everyone will know all of the answers to all of the quizzes

chortle, love, do the next right thing
pray, prepare to welcome another spring
