Furmonger

Furmonger

A Poem by barleygirl
"

just a little fantasy of mine . . .

"

Throughout my trek I been a fur monger
a furry patch makes the longing stronger
not a bit picky when furries lack a launder
on a natty patch my hands always wander.

The moon plumps up and I start to prowl
lookin’ fer some fur for to make me howl
say a little prayer to the great horny owl
comb the wilderness for a fully furred jowl.

Gotta have me some blistering firewood
in yonder boondocks it’s well understood
one lad stocks the whole neighborhood
they say satisfaction is the likelihood.

Grab the party line and give him a jingle
grab my work gloves as I go out to mingle
strapping mountain boy fresh from a dingle
a big stack of wood imparts a moist tingle.

He sheds his shirt and I’m weak at the knees
chest hair so dense it dithers in the breeze
torn jeans give glimpses of a furry tease
wonderin’ if he’ll swap for my firewood fees.

When we finish stacking we’re soaking wet
gotta love the feel of fur in a swirl of sweat
how he stocked my stove I will never forget
mere thought of a log and my appetite whets.

Für Margie.

Reading your latest poetic pursuit
Laced with veiled innuendo.
Who would have thought that being hirsute
Like your beloved pet dogs would end so
Far away from my initial canine concept
As you tickled my mind , (and his ardour )
But in stocking your stove, I can quite accept
That subterfuge made it harder
That this new furry friend
Achieved your end.
With home and carnal heating combined
So with your sublime
Sly monorhyme
You've succeeded in blowing my mind.

(((Hugs))) Norm

This is a great piece, I love anything written in the vernacular and this poem certainly has the feel of an authentic, distinctive voice. Your use of rhyme is at times sublime, particularly in the first stanza. I would say however, a few of the rhymes feel a touch forced, but it's only really noticeable on 'likelihood' and 'fees'. Those lines could maybe do with a little rework. But all that aside, you paint a thoroughly sensual picture, blurring the lines between the pursuit of animals and the urges that link two individuals! A great piece!

great flow, wording and expression. this one quite stands out if not in words then in howling reveal. so risqué. how great that two distinct heaters can be stoked by the same "wood"... :)

Ah, obviously about a favourite comfort blankie and the warmth of a log fire and how invigorating wood collecting can be.
As for the moist, well that will hinder the burning of the wood Margie.:)

You are such a naughty, wonderful girl! Sitting on the carpet, side of the last of the log fire, realising that a few of your US words have a different connotation to ours! Lines like this should go on a list of alltime best ninety shades of perverted puns, '.. say a little prayer to the great horny owl comb the wilderness for a fully furred jowl..

A classic, eloquent, epic ribald rhyme to incite and excite all hirsutists (?) ! Chaucer would have loved your piquant humor Margie. Throwing wood takes on a lusty lilt of language in your vivid poem ( or song?). Very lighthearted, musical and funny as heck. You make the Boondocks a happy place for sure. Hope those young woodsmen can keep the home fires blazing for ((you)) all winter my friend. Wait, is that singed hair I smell?......ha!

Norman said what i would have...the innuendo is so clever in this somewhat "allegorical" piece...
no pun intended...there is certainly warmth here, no, more like blistering heat.
nicely done, Margie.
