Towels and Tiaras

Towels and Tiaras

A Poem by gombeggar

Towels and tiaras

What a sight to see

Look at that girl’s picture

In the small black bikini

 

While, the penguin is crowing

The way he always does

Shouting for ovations

For laurels and love

 

It’s a mainstay of irreverence

Such conversations really no strain

A cloudy smoke filled room

Amongst the confections, the moods and the pains

 

A slip then a click

Then a type type type type…

Hit the ‘enter’ just once

And the words go up whoosh, kinda like

 

Talking of unicorns

Libidos, popcorn and more

Chattings so unmetered

There’s no time to be bored

 

Personal daemons, personal scores

Tracking maps of tornadoes

And Jesus

Checking off numbers, but keeping bad scores

 

A lovely little family we have

Cantankerous, somewhat jovial and old

Confused and confounded

Like a growing microbial cold

 

Speaks as you want

Says as you will

When the clock turns the day

We’ll all be back sitting on our computer screens still

you know? there are reviews that make my heart stop, they come from poets who know the power of the true word

and then there are the pot shots from those yipping little dogs, do you know the ones? who pretend to be fierce but aren't anything to be afraid of at all :)

Wow, this is poor. I give you 1/100, and that's for your spelling. Poetry rating wise, I wouldn't give this the time of day ;)
