Idol Chatter


I’m so confused, what do they want?
Those judges seem to goad and taunt
One week they ask for something new
Then criticize when you try to!

To my dawg, Randy, I’ll throw a bone
For Paula, I’ll make it my own
For Kara, I’ll be RIDIC-U-LOUS
And, for Simon, I'm meticulous 

What will I do this summer, now?
I'll miss my Idol nights, and how!
I wonder if Kara'll be back
Or if Simon will cut some slack

To the darker side this show appeals
But I love my Randy J. for REALS
And Paula just can't help but be
Her gushing self, oh my oh, me!

Till next winter, I'll have to wait
And with each teaser I'll take the bait
And sit, transfixed before the set
For the greatest Idol season yet!

    Hey, Carina!! Where's your muse? Try writing a Haiku, a senryu... at least a monoku!! : ) Hope everything is OK. How's little Sammy? My prayers still with him. Ruben.

    I don't watch the Idol except for a few minutes sometimes or see ads on the tely. It is catchy and I like it just don't make a habit of watching. The woman from England Just blew me away. The Awards the other night on CMT where a person from Idol won was interesting because she also caught my attention with that song. I really like the way you put the poem together. Sara

    Hey, Donna, I'm suffering from "Idol" withdrawal, too. Really enjoyed this write. I think Kara can take a hike, but I do love Randy. So glad Kris Allen won this year and David Cook last year. Anoop Desai was my personal fave, especially when he told Randy, "You can call me Anoop Dawg." Thanks for reminding me how much I love listening to the judges squalking! Love, Carolyn
