Finding poetry dull
and bored out my skull
(a wasted pun this early in the write)
listless and drained
knocked on my brain
to share with the voices my plight

The head voice, Jack 
peeped through a crack
sighed:  "Our host wants to visit, the pest
have we time to entertain
one who abandoned his brain
now sporting two brain cells at best?"

Much to my chagrin
loud snickers from within
"Pretty please, a word if I may?"
"No time to chat
we're celebrating, so scat
it's International Imagin'ry Friends Day." 

Flo (soft on me)
her voice husky:
"Might as well tolerate the bore
besides", (giggle, giggle)
"I'm up for a wiggle
Nobody's lain me in two or more." 

"Two years ago
or two months, Flo?"
"Nay, two hours of abstinence I'd had to survive
scarce opportunity 
in this sparse community 
to appease and keep a body alive."

As I stepped inside 
shocked out my hide
my imaginaries had been on the breed 
my tribe once twenty
upwards of seventy
all races and colors;  no discernible creed 
I stared transfixed
at the veritable mix
males and females, neuters too, mind
all shapes and shades
an entire brigade 
a maelstrom of unhuman-kind

I stood aghast
jaw at half-mast
"Brood, your behavior is contemptuous 
you've busily mated
but you're all related 
your liaisons are highly incestuous."

"We're not blood-pumpers
we're merely humpers
products of inane fabrication 
and furthermore
you first-class bore
a figment of your 'magination."

"Two hours 40 seconds
of deprivation I reckon
too long I've endured a dry run
enough of fabrications 
and blood-y relations 
Mr Host, are you up for fun?

I'll consult my lawyer
for an eviction order 
my voices have gone perverse 
the whole lot to go
except of course Flo
the inspiration for my none-too-clean verse
