FUTURE MADMAN

FUTURE MADMAN

A Poem by rutherford
"

Past, present, and future walk into a bar...it was tense.

"
Your morning visit
with news and coffee
Past and Present
Three of you
here and now
but always
distractions
shadows at the door
It's Future--eternal party crasher
“Wait, I’ll be with you in a second.”
“Not a chance,” snickers Future
running down the street
like a Halloween prankster
laughing like mad.

very clever word play....the future i believe will have us in a straight jacket...

distractions and shadows...present and past fighting over our spirit...will leave our emotions bouncing off walls in a rubber room.

i want to TP my over sensitivity...because it will drive me mad.

i so relate to this piece.

Quiet interesting to read. Sometimes, the first ray of the day takes the spirits to the past with some old memories of life to re-play the words in the head.. in a hope to make the rest of the time bright but, everyone`s failed at it till they don`t make it happened with pleasure and faith. Nice imagery!

I like the fact that this poem has been written in a simple language but owns a three dimensional effect on the reader very clever and brilliantly written.

I love this. So much to learn and to ponder upon.

He's the friend I never meet and when I think I have I find he's someone else. I do enjoy your poems each are like finding hidden gems. It's been awhile. I am glad I had the opportunity to partake of this.

Love this - It's Future--eternal party crasher... Yes, he hovers nearby, but is maddeningly out of reach. :)

Interestingly put in the lines...
but I come to expect that in your writes...
this came out just as fast...
as it leaves us with the dilemma of thought...
yet seems Future...
steals the show in the aspect of things...

Future always seems a distraction. Working to stay in the moment

We will all get there...what's the hurry right...
Very clever concept, we're always preoccupied with the past and future at the present moment in time, ha

Thanks Frieda
Can I just say you are one of my favourite poets, on here. From your subject matter to the clever, yet light touch you use developing your concept. I read this and I felt my brain expand, in a good way.

That's hundred from me.
