Just a minute...man

A Poem by Tony Jordan
"

"My day will come..."

"


I look forward to meeting you all

Sorry if I seem rude but
You wont see me 
You wont hear me coming...
coming... 

to a town near you.

I am the descendant of the 
legendary Fat Boy; 
of the great Littleman

My sky-carriages -
Hwasong, Minuteman, Topol
and many other names.

I especially look forward 
to joining 
intimately with 
a select few of you -
to our very elements fusing

in a dance that was first performed
soon after the universe's birth 
and ever since

For those who sit 
out the initial whirl
Well...my, my...

You'll know that I've been
You'll wear my tattoos 
All over your body

see my calling card
all around and above you
in the ground and in the water
and in the food

soon

My day will come...
I look forward to meeting you all.

ok...i very scared sir ... you aren't coming my way are you?? :O
great job pointing out our plight ...since the beginning ... silence, surprise and deadly all came to play with man's first attack upon himself eh!? the sarcasm is well wielded my friend .. and word play subtle .. there are a lot of things we do in a war that wreak of phalic.. such a shame to waste the beauty of sexuality ...did you mean to change Fat Man and Little Boy on purpose? you must have ;) i think this is a strong treatise on savage history ..war is never pretty nor wanted by sane people ...only necessary in survival mode .. well done!

ps in a final glimpse at your title i just got it :} duh!

Holy S**t, Tony! Bad day at the office?

Seriously, this is not even a veiled threat but a straight up promise. Palpable, blatant and very, very frightening (with thunderbolts and lightning!).

Loved it.

You are amazing. I like how you use seriousness with humor to get the message across. I hope we don't have to be in a nuclear exchange of bad boys and fat boys...Marvelous.

Hahaha. Me too. You are welcome. Puglism and Piglism. Lol
Though it is irrelevant probably but it kinda reminds me of the current situation we have in the city I am in, of a psychopath running loose with a knife attacking young women. Your post reads to me as if that psychopath addressing us all. Lol sorry my weird mind runs amok ;P
Interesting write, Tony.

Too close for comfort Tony but very eloquently told. The way you have written about this poetically and in an indirect way is very effective. In the past we may have had some comfort that the architects of MAD were not mad but now I'm not sure. A couple of years ago I discovered that my dad had gone to visit Hiroshima at the end of the war but he never spoke about it! I wrote a story about this called 'Walking to zero' which is on my list.

Alan
