Thought of spit but featured snot

Thought of spit but featured snot

A Poem by Jack...
"

the craziness just doesn't end

"

Thought of spit but featured snot

 

Checkered flags and dirty rags

ovals at the speed of pen

Engines roar the second floor

straight as any curve can bend

Laughing gas, or that you pass

fills the room with nostril noise

Pirate ships and salsa dips

spies are at the ready, poised

Poetry, the open sea

romantic, no I think this not

Sniffle, sneeze, if you please

thought of spit but featured snot

Screaming words, have you heard

it’s over man, it's almost done

Tell the truth, bring the proof

quintuplets only add up one

Take your glass, raise it fast

kool-aid on the tables served

Crossing guards disguise the bard

he hit the kids, he never swerved

Headlines bold, the story told

this the fate of evil twins

One was this and one was that

and one was something else again

Hummingbirds forget the words

twisted branches kill the leaves

Smoke filled clouds form the shrouds

flying deadly with disease

Round the track, no looking back

using words to fuel the crime

Hit the spot, collect the snot

we're spitting at the finish line

Thanks so much Rose. Now you can see why they call me a romantic. :)
This had me rolling in the proverbial aisles, my friend. I love the tempo and the meter, and of course the imagery and concept were extremely well done! I love the metaphorical significance of this one!

*peeking timidly around the doorjamb*...
Jack? Is that really you? LOL...this is HILARIOUS!!!!
This is no waltz...This is a crazy whirling dervish, spinning out of control... I'm out of breath just watching...and giggling so hard I just might wet myself, here.
What happened, my romantic friend? Too much time under that moon the other night...
OH, check quickly...you aren't growing hair between your toes, are you?
Fantastic write, my freind, cunningly crafted. But I do have one question...
Where did you get that ridiculous picture???????????????

It was just a photo I picked. :) Thanks Angel, the moon does have an affect on me.
I too was intrigued to see what this was all about. Anarchistic humour sprang to mind –but the little grey cells started to work overtime; as it brought back memories of this (childhood) recipe for whipping up some fake snot.

What you need;

Light corn syrup - unflavoured gelatine - measuring cup - water - microwave oven or stove - permission from your family to cook in the kitchen, or family help.

How to make;

Heat 1/2 cup water just until it boils. Remove the heat. Sprinkle in 3 envelopes of unflavoured gelatine. Let it soften a few minutes and stir with a fork. Add enough corn syrup to make 1 cup of thick glop. Stir with the fork and lift out the long strands of gunk. As it cools, you'll need to add more water, spoonful by spoonful.

Then it’s ‘Snotty-time’! (I've just revealed my sad side)

Bravo for humorous prose … bring on the pepper dust for an encore!

Thanks so much my friend. I might have to write that recipe down.
I saw the title before coming by today, and it captured my interest, for I was simply wondering, if the word "snot" did had the same meaning in Dutch as it has in English, and I was right. LOL, that made me smile just entering this one, then the picture made me giggle, in a positive way,
For your poem, wow, in your rhythm I taste some ironic anger, (love to see that from you too for a change... LOL) and some annoyance. "Poetry, the open sea romantic, no I think this not Sniffle, sneeze, if you please thought of spit but featured snot " did it totally for me, for you cracking me up with this one my dear friend... A blast, hilarious, and so cleverly written, I can't get enough from it! It's good to have you in the Cafe my friend, on any variety! well done!
