elegant giraffes


He wondered if his verse was made for fools
and cretins that splish-splash alongside whales
composing dull sonnets was chased by bulls 
- by elegant giraffes and racing snails.

Amid the chickens in his country cot,
while gulping bourbon the pig-farmer writes
his scribble verse turns to an artless blot
and straight he gulps one more for his insights

Oh, detrimental muse of his confused,
absconding inspiration that evades
his talent which was alcohol-abused,
and like the content of each bottle, fades:

......Inspiring advent of a healthy burp
made pigs and chickens to comment "superb"!

    I have to wonder what your thoughts were when you wrote this Giorgio. I think it is more brilliant then it appears.

    Please, do not fave this poem. I do not consider it among my better ones. It was just a humorous exercise on sonnet writing, quite some time ago. I do not want it on the Top 100 list. Thank you.

    I've just corrected the last stanza's syntax. It is not among my better poems, but I wanted to make Judy smile. Thank you.
