Struggling to Keep…

Published November 18, 2020 by Nan Mykel
WISDOM

…MY ENTRIES as noble as possible, without following our president’s example. Therefore, Perhaps for awhile I’ll be downright silly. So you can ignore me, that’s okay. My political focus has already cost me readers in search of escape let’s pretend. (Alas, I ought not bad mouth any straggling readers! I continue self-quarantined.)

WRITE YOU a poem every day?

After the fat lady sings, I say,

And after the ice man cometh

Maybe that path I will runneth.

___

I’d sing to my plants if I could,

But vocal chords no longer sound good.

On the other hand when I burp

The birds tend to answer my chirp.

___

Perhaps my boundaries are loose–

I’m all over the place, forsooth

And Bob’s been reincarnated,

Already inebriated.

FROM MY SNAIL MAIL:

Some states having lockdowns and not others is like selecting a spot for pissing in a swimming pool.

IN MEMORIUM

Alas, poor car, you did me no wrong.

If we forged a spiritual bond,

I broke it that February day.

Was I wool gathering or were his lights

out? No mind. Spilt milk. Misdeed done.

I never knew the freedom you brought

me until the day we parted on

Route 7.  Oh my Toyota Matrix

2003, how I miss you!  I’m sorry.

 

SILENCE

Out of juice, I have to say

this thirsty page before me lay.

The manhole cover is doing its job;

life underground remains in a fog.

 

SCRIBBLINGS

I’ve got an itty bitty

Witty ditty

Just under my arm—

No harm,

but it’s pritty gritty!

A Post to Entertain You

Published July 6, 2016 by Nan Mykel

I’ve noticed that I’m stuck in the good company of poets who only visit me when I have a poem up my sleeve or somewhere, preferably on Dverse.  How did this happen?  What happened to the great population of octogenarians  who have nothing better to do than fiddle with  computer keys. Maybe they’re playing piano keys instead? Sorry, count me out. Musician I’m not, just as I’m not  lot of things….Republican, Spanish-speaking,  extrovert, yankee….I could go on and on, literally.  But you knew that, didn’t you!  So, does that mean you’re a bored curious poet just dropping by to see what I’m up to?  If so, welcome. If not, double welcome!caterpillar                                                                                                                                                                                       Edith Smith     http://www.Butterfly-Fun-Fact.com

 

THE YELLOW AND PURPLE CATERPILLAR

                                                                                                            (I’ve already gotten myself in trouble–killer?)…

Reminds me of Phyllis Diller

(especially due to her last name)

…this killer caterpillar–not caterpillar killer (you note the difference?)

was devouring an innocent leaf one night

when he saw an owl

also on the prowl.

Our killer said nnnnnnnnnnnnf

and the owl replied WHO?

Impatient, our killer yelled nnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnf!!!

The owl on the prowl, you see,

not unlike you and me,

didn’t like sass so

bit him in the ass, leaving

only a purple caterpillar.
