A riff off of Giggle's lovely poem. Comments/Guffaws?
I Didn't, But Katydid (written while eating potato chips)
I sat and layed™ as the world cliched
but the clouds gone by wouldn't paint the sky
the train whistle sound went on "all day-ed"
though it tried, it just couldn't pass me by
The tree frogs (six) fell and broke the larynxes
the cloud angels laughed into their wings
the kaytidids nixed, went on strike, - those minxes!
and the ebb and flow left some rings!
A piano fortéd all the live long day
it was hardly ever soothing
the moist haze hardly merits praise
and the sunset needs removing
All in all for a quiet day I'd rather take another than this one
all forms they say fade into gray so I'm sure they'll hardly miss one.
Thanks Sandy for the inspiration.
I wanted to say "tree frogs (at sixes)" but most of the audience would not know the rhyming slang...
at sixes and sevens
far from heaven.
So I left it as a head count.

I am glad you shared this
I got a kick out of it...
I know, I have been writing to cliche` and stuff
but my melancholy mood has kept me there
so I robotically write the words
either I have a lot of friends or people do like it...hmmmmm
as for you
I absolutely will take credit for inspiring this great piece from you
and would you kindly pass those chips, I have a craving....

No guffaws, but genuine laughter. Charming and I love the cloud angels!

not good for me
but pass me some chips
some smooth ... high calorie dips
and *slips 2 chips between her lips*
*Qaucking up*... as gives me the pringles.

Some how I get the impression that this was more fun to write than it was to read
but it was still fun to read
I wrote you a poem, about romance even

"Train whistle blowing makes a sleepy noise" what were thinking when they wrote that, it's a frightening noise.
