Beneath the moon of midnight sky
A romantic night it should be
But I had some drinks ... two turned to three
And three turned into thirteen

So, of course, I had to relieve myself
I walked off into the bush
And when I came back ... what did I lack?
A hint ... they cover my tush

In noticing this, I had to go off
On a naked and drunken rant
My love didn't mind ... my figure was fine
Even without my pants

People can say whatever they may
Like hindsight is awful clear
But I disagree ... take it from me
Hindsight is clearly rear

You may ask why I took them off to begin with
I can't remember ... what else can I say?
My shirt was off before I'd left for the bush
Maybe I reckoned the pants, there should stay

But alas, I went off to hunt the ole pants
My bum looking back in kind
For when I told my dear, we'd watch the sky
Twasn't mooning I'd had in mind

For Lisa's 'I love you to the moon and back' contest

    Ok, I must admit that upon reading your title, I didn't have 'mooning' in mind-- pretty fun way of playing with the topic here-- A very engaging write that is brilliant as the full moon, haha. You should've included werewolves, haha...As for the spike in views, thanks for the clarification, haha now I can take you off my suspect' list. kidding! Yeah, I saw how some other Soupers had that spike too. Most likely a crazy glitch?

    Caleb, this is a very clever piece. Your sense of humor is the best. I also like the comments people have left you. Nakedness can get some people uptight, butt it's not so bad.

    This is really beautiful... I mean the pen. ~ A.O

    Well I'll be damned...too bad the only pantless men outside around here are the seniors who like to enjoy the beach in nothing more than a speedo! Ugh! Is your moon as white as Mother Moon? haha very funny.....why is it that men who indulge under the naked moon end up naked themselves? A mystery to me...

    HA HA HA HA! This is my second read...Not only is your poem a delight (I am referring to your actual literary skill and not to the vision know! ;) but the comments that I've read are also so so interesting. are a dear! Thanks for the lovely comment on my haiku! Made me smile!

    Good morning Caleb, lol...I'm closing my eye on your surprise... how did you know I needed this chuckle. the moon and moon BACK again... you got some kind of mind. I like what you did here. I think you should change the title 2 " To: be mooned by Caleb" heheheh i can't get enough. I can go on and on with a comment. but it won't be fair. We both know I'm the only one wearing pants while reading your poem. I'm glad we don't have to call in the rehabs. A few drinks under the moon is all right. and if the figure is nice, and you love ranting, i think we should have a few drinks together. Like, maybe we will start off with two and turn it into three And then into thirteen.... lol~ Of course no romance allowed. I just want to see what you mean by a sleek figure... he he. I'm just kidding. thank you for the bun bun..i meant fun fun poem. Good luck in the contest...Linda

    Caleb, your descriptions are so right on, I'm imagining wandering aimlessly looking for pants, in a drunken stupor. At least you were outside not using a closet for the loo. You make me smile.

    to the moon and back? your begging for attention!
