All Shook Up

All Shook Up

A Chapter by Dave Brown



Heartbreak hotel

Had a cancellation

Mack the knife

Withdrew his reservation

Because the wayward wind

Had become all shook up

And wouldn’t go

Through the green door

To walk in the rain

with Billy Elliot

"Mack the knife withdrew his reservation" . . . very clever! I almost felt a knife sliding out of my gut flesh. You do a superb job of dragging in a dozen different references to make the reader scratch his/her head . . . Billy Elliot led me to Google (you'll be satisfied to know, I'm sure) . . . but nothing at Googs illuminated for me the reason BE's in this poem!?!?! I think my synapses are breaking down while you're are being poetically built up! (((HUGS))) Fondly, Margie
