+ Fav Poet


Inexpert at rhyme 
or singing in time
I bray like a laryngitic donkey
my artwork's inept 
I'm ham-fisted except
when doodling things that are wonky

Of style I'm bereft 
my feet are both left
splayed in an opposite direction;
'tis little wonder
I blindfully blunder
into despair and abject dejection

My mind is a bog 
of gunk and cheap grog
my gray matter's shrinking, I fear
today is a haze 
yesterday a maze
and everything's clearly unclear

My dress sense is eish 
and fits not my niche
nor do my shorts, come to that
my flip-flops are worn 
my t-shirts all torn
one boob is fat, one is flat!

Despite many a flaw
I'm not an eyesore
though ungainly and lacking in style
with my stunning good looks
I easily hooked
your soon-to-be-ex with my smile

    Well, a lady that knows herself and has accepted it! A great achievement to reach that level of self-knowledge and self-confidence that little matters what others think. However, beneath the concrete exterior my eye spies a...soft interior!

    love this one. I had read it recently and enjoying it again . btw, do you think it would be ok to use Wounded Thunder in that native american contest? I honestly don't know how to write of things I know little of and at least I can do humor,but I know some native americans are sensitive and I don't want to offend anyone. maybe I will enter it. I have a really good serious one but it's an oldie here at Soup and probably she wants a new entry!

    Your soon-to-be-ex... you're quite the devious one! I appreciate your boldness and how you don't pull any punches... but just show us the real YOU! Everything's perfectly clear that you have naught to fear... you are just simply being yourself. Even if that means you are times obscene and prank like one of Santa's bad elves.... he he he... couldn't resist.
