Oscar

A Poem by Einstein Noodle
"

i have been having fun names; they are: Albert, Jenny, Antoinette, and now Oscar. No offence is intended for any "person" ... and they are not names of anyone i know. ;) ...just saying! :)

"
Oscar

perhaps the "Grouch" at 
first thought

but no ...  i think not

gold teeth make him fierce
desirable and too ....

sought after 
to be the grouch

imaging would be concrete 
were it not for soft shimmering
malleable shell

Bomb Shells .......... undress
confess such adoration 

Men stutter their manhood
stolen long ago

Oscar ... no slouch, nor grouch
but mean just the same.

It's sad that things such as the Oscar have been relegated to the dustbin. There was a time when they actually meant something; but like the Nobel Peace Prize, politics often come into play which have absolutely nothing to do with the original intent of the award. My preferences are not geared by awards nor the critics. In fact, I tend to prefer the things they don't.

Like most have reviewed, the line about men stuttering their manhood is a stand out.

I don't watch the Oscars but when a movie or actor/actress win an award and I enjoyed the show or performance I feel a small joy for the winner.

Indeed so sought after that such awards in my country often are pre-arranged or in other words bought. Not so sure about the Oscars though. But the sheen is wearing off slowly but surely...

We have lost our values. Indeed we never really had them as such glitz was a false sheen upon a morally corrupt society that attended church each Sunday but was immoral the rest of the week.

The great times of true entertainment and creativity are gone where legends used to be made and true values of the society upheld. Now everything goes with lowly politics and hidden agendas of the powers that be behind the scenes. It used to be a show to inspire other generations but it is sadly a showmanship of egos. An excellent one , sir...:)...........

Well, I almost got it right, my first thought from Oscar, was Oscar Schindler from the movie Schindlers list, which won quite a few Oscars if I recall. Poor junkless Oscar :)
Great piece E, loved it.

Rarely pay much attention to this ceremony nowadays, exulted people exalting themselves...or maybe I'm that proverbial 'Grouch' E?
