Fools

Fools

A Chapter by Ana Papaya
"

.

"


A rather harmless lunatic
armed with bread and butter stick
brandished each with wave and flick
as though a magic wand

from his mouth rang gibberish
casting spells to fill his wish
a trout or other tasty fish
from over yonder pond

and with a puff of smoke appeared
a lady with a reddish beard
none too pleased and now he feared
her soon come rant and rave

YOU did this to me, you t**d!
this beard is rightly utterly absurd
and if I've no hope to ever be cured
then at least come give me a shave!


the rather harmless lunatic
armed with bread and butter stick
tried once again with wave and flick
as though a magic wand

a puff of smoke again appeared
with cautious steps he edged in near
waved a hand the air to clear
hoping the beard had gone

indeed it was and there she was
a lass so pretty kicking much a fuss
at the wannabe wizard she tossed a cuss
then began to roll and laugh

she's a little bit loony too, you see
a happy ending, would you believe
they skipped away chasing dust in a breeze
just a couple of fools in love

Sounds like Year One at Hogwarts! Lol. Trying to master the magic wand, messing up badly but making all well in the end. A red beard on a lady would be just terrible, though, so I can't blame her for her rant. Your rhyme here just flows so well and the tale is creative and full of whimsy. Such a fun read, Ana!

Love the authentic way you depict love in your poem, not elegant or mushy or sacred, but just the real way we humans engage & shove & love. We hurt, we alter each other, we grow & laugh about stuff later (the stuff we lost our humor about, at first). If only we could relax & laugh about it all sooner (((HUGS))) Fondly, Margie

Thank you for liking this !
Nonsense.
Sheer nonsense.
And the most beautiful variety I've seen.

10/10 Goldblums.
