Crackpot Cranial Chaos

Crackpot Cranial Chaos

A Poem by The Iron Horseman
"

A little piece of craziness that will, hopefully, make you smile.

"

Silky, slippery serpents slither slickly through stinking slime,

Flickering forked tongues tasting tangy fodder, flavours fading faintly on acrid ancient air,

As rapidly retreating rodents race recklessly round rocky runnels,

Wherein wistful, wicked werewolves whistle windy waltzes,

While working wonders with wild women,

And desperate, drunken dogs dig diabolically deep ditches,

To trap terrified terrapins in wet, white, woven withies,

Then crack canines crunching calcified carapaces for freedom from famine's fangs.


Eloquently elegiac elephants exercise exhaustingly in tiny turquoise tank tops over tangerine tutus,

While twining their trunks in time to toe-tapping tunes,

As voracious vegetarian voles vanquish vapid vixens in violent confrontations combining classic combat combustibles

With fearsome ferocious fire-power to absolutely annihilate those anarchistic, atavistic animals,

Until jaded, joking jackanapes jig through juicy, jiggling jellies to prevent posturing, puling, parasitic postulants

Harming hungry, harried housewives with hopeless, hapless husbands who appear asininely incapable of injurious intervention, When suddenly, silently, sensory storms wrack the writer's ruined, crazed, crumbling cortex,

Crushing creative complexity forever, forlorn, frantically, finally finished.

The Iron Horseman
I plead temporary insanity on this one!
Well, alright, maybe it's not that temporary.

Just some fun with alliteration and assonance.

This is a literary feat of skill,strength and wit my friend. “Alliteration and assonance” finally gone mad- in a very good way! The title and first line of this poem totally freaked me out-aaah “slippery serpents slither slickly”- absolutely abhorrently amoral. Technical perfection combined with Carrolinian humor and sarcasm- what could ever be better?. Absolutely love and admire this intricate poetic work. Superb write Iron Horseman- You Rock!

You are welcome.
Alliteration is my jam. This was an alphabet soup of a poem, and I slurped it up. Good work!

Thank you for a very original review! I'm glad you enjoyed it.
The best aspect of how you’ve balanced your rambling wordplay – you give respite from a rash of bigger more complex words by using some more simple words in a row, here & there. The other thing I adore, of course, is that your lines make sense, telling a story, not just a senseless word jam. Also, a perfect number of words included in an alliterative line, then switching it up, so as not to get too monotonous on one word sound for too long. There’s more than meets the eye to these radical riffs! (((HUGS))) Fondly, Margie
