Sham I Am–WalterMarks’ dVerse re-blog


Poetry and Prose

Jilly is tending the Dverse Lounge tonight. She has requested that we write a repetitive poem. With the November elections at hand, I have had lots of “one on one‘ time with political phone surveys of late. I am venting a little here, but not in regard to any political candidate or affiliation.

Politicians on my phone
Droning surveys monotone:

“Would you let us
in your life
To bring whirled peas
And end all strife.”

I will not let you
in my life
Though smooth
Your words cut like a knife
I do not like the taste of spam
I will not let you Sham I Am

“Would you join us on the mall,
In D.C. when we rally all?
Support our platform
Shtick by shtick?”

I will not join you
on the mall.
I’d sooner nail you
to the wall;
I will not be your biggest fan

About Nan Mykel

At 79, I was just about to stop keeping a journal, but that felt like accepting that growth was finished. I don't want to be finished, yet! I'm 80 now, and struggling to communicate with you, if you'll come and set awhile. P.S. My how time flies! I'm 83 now.
