Pin the Tail on the Donkey-hee haw

Swirl me, twirl me, spin me ‘round
My eyes are covered, subject not found.
Direct me here, then block me there
Smiles and snickers; won’t give a care.
Hates me, baits me, friend or foe
I stop to listen but never know.
Frizzy, dizzy, can’t find the beast
Removing blind, tail’s pinned on me!

    I think some one needs to keep you on your toes my friend. And here is the perfect way a little challenge. I still have not been able to finish the carpenter and the walrus I need inspiration. Would you write a poem on the mad hatters tea party and post on soup. I will then see if I can match your work. A collab that is not a collab Love Shane xxx

    Oh, who knows when one is in a "frizzy dizzy" state of bewilderment? May have ended up tagged on pride, or trust, common sense? More than likely after all the confusion, it was knotted like a tie (choker)? Dang, you ask the darnest questions, Shane! :))

    Mikki, I liked this one immensely!! The tone and beat of this verse write are in perfect pitch and synchronicity. I got both frizzy and dizzy reading it over and over. Your touch with these writes is quite marvelous. A "7" and a FAV here from me!! Best Always, Gary

    Wow! This has so much energy that by the end my head was spinning..such effective verbage! I also love the poetic shift of silliness at the end..ha ha...someone was having fun at your expense! Just like a kid's bday party...I tell ya, Mikki..this poem stirred up some pretty profound emotions in me of the days my grandmother threw the best bday parties..Pin the tail was our fav game! Grandiose write that blessed me this day! :) all my best to u...gwendolen

    Reminds of an ancient ritual, perhaps a rebirth;alone to explore - its funny how,when the blind is lifted the Light can hurt - Thanks for spurring me - J.A.B.
