Wrong Timing

In a hellish nightmare
Saw you standing there

With eyes glowing like fireballs
Brewing on a heavy and dangerous squall

Lightning reveals your silhouette
Your hand shakes as you lit your cigarette

What madness goes through your head this time?
Don`t know why really,you`re just a wasted dime

Not that I care that much about it
If it just wasn`t so annoying listening to your fit

There`s one thing about it though
The timing is wrong for your game show

Your rants normally comes around by full moon
Anyway..what can we expect from a baboon?

Ranting and venting is your game
Pretty much the story of your life,and how you get your fame

If you need a friend,someone to blame
Just say so,don`t act like a moron to get your fame

    Hello Arlid, just got back on line on the first day of this year. Had to close up last year and make sure I finished everything that was left hanging during 2013 :)... I know you are not back... However this would not be a good year if I did not stop by... HAPPY 2014... WISHING YOU THE BEST... Fly happy.... Always and forever... LINDA

    Quite an intriguing write, Arild and yes, I suppose sometimes the timing and how one rants can grate on people's nerves... enjoyed reading this and it's always a pleasure to hear from you. I hope you are having a fine week! Hugs as well to you and the lovely family! :)

    SORRY ARILD COULD NOT ACCESS POEMS ABOVE THIS ONE TO COMMENT DUE TO SITE NOT SHOWING VALIDATION KEY LUV .. I KNOW A FEW 'BABOONS' WHO ALSO ACT MORONIC AT TIMES .. EXCELLENT SYNOPSIS TO REVEAL THIS PERSONALITY LUV ..

    Reads like a double barreled load of double 00 buckshot! Though I'm pledged to drink lightly from the judgement well, I wouldn't mind borrowing a few of these lines at opportune moments :-) Thanks for visiting my stuff, Ernest.
