A Chapter by Dave Brown



I caught a quick glimpse

Of something strange in the sky

Like a stagecoachy sorta thingy

Which was flying so high


Halloween was now all over

So, it wasn’t too likely a witch

I soon realized it was a duck shaped drone

Pulling an Astro van, by its trailer hitch


I watched from the front porch

As it was being pulled by

And saw a gorgeous woman

Who smiled, after catching my eye


I smiled back and she waved me up

I ran down onto the road

As the drone did a u-turn

Flying back to add me to the load


We flew quickly off to the land of Nod

Filling the van to the very last gram       

Then we played chess with the greats

While flying the Astro all round Amsterdam


On our return voyage, we were married

And settled on the tropical isle of Pataloni

Where day and (well, not all night-just married)

I write this type of poetic (?) baloney

Speaking of writing "poetic baloney" . . . I read on one of your reviews of Bad Bunny (given his penchant for doing his poetry orally) -- you admitted you tried reading your poetry aloud to your wife, but your tongue gets tangled, so your lucky wife doesn't have to listen to too much of your poetic blathering.

Now let's address the title of this soiled rag.

"Stagecoach" . . . turns out to be: "a duck shaped drone pulling an Astro van by its trailer hitch" . . . at this point I decided I've been remiss in thinking marijuana would be sufficient medicine for my numerous afflictions . . . reading this made me decide I need to go back to taking opioids becuz there's no way I'm able to take a leap from "Stagecoach" to "a duck shaped drone pulling an Astro van by its trailer hitch". Clearly I need a boost when it comes to making such outlandish poetic connections. Here's hoping we'll be enjoying your poetic baloney all thru the coming year (((HUGS))) Fondly, Margie
