Best Daver Austin Poems

+ Fav Poet



it’s raining non stop
humidity out-of-sight
those maddening raindrops!

not a real downpour
but just this steady drizzle
only good for the crops

sticky is the word
such that when i get up
the chair comes with me

it’s a frog’s delight…
noah’s sensing the great flood…
the whole world at sea..

owl and pussy cat
in their slimy pea green boat
drifting endlessly!

these depressing thoughts –
the sun will never come out –
have me feeling yuck!

then i watch the news
“twister levels many blocks”
and i’m thunderstruck!

    oooh. That was the perfect ending for this set, Daver. So you are getting very wet. that's what i heard about my wonderful midwest. But for now I am happy to be here in Utah instead. Good seeing you today, my friend
