Mumbo Gumbo

Mumbo Gumbo

A Poem by barleygirl
"

beware mumbled whispers . . .

"


Sweet baby sneezes (or whatever appeases)
her bitsy bloomers bang billowy breezes
mind trapezes, that’s where her expertise is
a swingin’ sizzle sure to spawn wheezes.

Look at this Canuck, an unlikely schmuck
wagging his tail trying to get it unstuck
thunderstruck ducks all in a cluster pluck
one more suck and he’ll be moonstruck.

With a britches hitch she belts perfect pitch
crooning a voodoo kiss to evoke his twitch
splayed without a stitch, a sight to bewitch
his mumbo glitch: the name of an ex-b***h.

After such a bad call she’s no longer in thrall
fraught with forfeits are his boudoir pitfalls
her fevered frenzy stalls and his flagpole falls
another inert entry for her collection of balls.

I don't know what you've been on, Margie, but, shouldn't this mellifluous mayhem of monorhymes be subject to some form of censorship..... or is it just my lascivious mind? As the old song goes. "Memories are made of this" ***Wink! Wink!*** (((Hugs)))

PS just seen the photo. I was right, after all!! LOL

I came to the title hungry. I left feeling horny. I’m raising the flagpole and charging up the mons for all men.

Jk, nice write, Barleygirl

I believe this is a write for mature audience but I marvel at the choice of words "boudoir pitfalls". Very charmingly done, in an otherwise very deceptively lurid piece.

Such a rhythmic magic speaks through your sighs here. Your words truly dance in the most playful patterns of light and dark and all else desired. Keep the magic door open wide. :)

laughing ... an in-your-face-write. i love the title. this hits hard from the beginning and never really lets up as it builds. this reads like a playful game of peek-a-boo with a sarcastic climax. something refreshingly different with good word play. wasn't sure where it was going. sounds like some viagra is needed in there somewhere - "his mumbo glitch: the name of an ex-b***h.". powerfully creative. think i'll sit with my legs crossed for the rest of the day ...

The rhyming in this one is absolutely contagious! I found myself searching for other words that would rhyme with "canuck, schmuck, and unstuck!" Have to read Ethan's poem now. Boudoir pitfalls? Laughing here. This is just a hoot! Lydi**

dear Margie... how clever to create your very own humour... reminds me of art class where you can paint from a model or from memory.
Life is full of titilating experiences... however, only a few gifted poets can express feelings the way you do. truly, Pat
