Poem one.. April one.. 2014


Will see how this one a day of April fooling goes. Wasn’t sure if I’d riff ‘cause last week the poemin’ racket got me down. As I explained via the Facebook:

“Over the Holidays I mentioned I was trying to quit smoking. Went smoke free for almost a month…and then began to backslide…I also mentioned, on blog postings, that I was thinking about doing the poem a day in April idiocy.

“In Purgatory they serve allegories during Happy
And in Purgatory, the length of Happy Hour has
yet to be determined…”

add three or four more pitiful verses, and time the exercise at an hour and forty five minutes and what do you get….seven, 7 class a fu$k*n’ cigarettes smoked…twice the number than the preceding 48 hours… I’f I longhand the poesy, I stoke the stroke …

Until  finished(?) with all the third rate word slinging, I didn’t even know I had smoke more than one. I’m done.”


I’m spry yet retired. I reside in the inner city of a major metropolitan area of the United States. I read politics. I watch baseball. I hum along with the tune. I June swoon, and moon the bad poem. Post here, are old and new. Opinions are my very own, except when wrong.

Comments? Cool!
