Favorite Things

A Poem by Ufi Auttorri ~ UfoAuthor
"

On reader described it as "Mad love."

"
Waxing Poetic, Dyspeptic, Pathetic

Velvet black roses and snotty wet noses
Worn out shoeses and stubby black toeses
Alley cats fighting somewhere near a street
Thunder and lightning and raining in sheets

Old humans trying to remember predictions
Calamities of previous elections
Those dusty dead flowers that forever bring
Memories of bells that never will ring

When the dark dusk comes and the mists roll in
When we're feeling deliriously thin
We simply remember those miserable things
And then sit smiling at droopy, wet wings

A love unrequited with chicken and noodles
Served in weak broth with marinated poodles
Cannibals ghosts gnawing bones of the dead
Enemy skulls on a four-poster bed

Wangdoodles hopping over bent rail crossings
Loud clanging bells and old ropes tossing
Fearful winds howling and shutters a banging
Broken windshield wipers, rotten fruit hanging

These are a smidgen of things we love not
Nor wish them on other miserable sots
But we just adore them, amor le bereft
How so and why? They're all that we get.

even the broken things can be better than nothing at all...

such a clever, amusing piece this is. Yes, we have a history of calamitous elections, for sure.
and those windshield wipers just never seem to wash away the messes of life that seem to pour down on us.
