Inder the Unfluence

Starkle, starkle, little twink, "Who the hell are you?" I think. I'm not under what you'd call The alcofluence of incohol. I'm just a little slort of sheep, I'm not drunk like thinkle peep. It's true: I don't know quite who is me yet, (The drunker I stand here the longer I get!) So give me one more fink to drill my cup, 'Cause I got all day sober to Sunday up. *Inspired by "Spoonerisms"

I truly enjoyed this, Chan, and I think you have such a knack for spoonerisms and word play! Very witty in my opinion -- I should try to set aside more time to read more poems here... hopefully one day!

Thanks, Keith. It's by far one of my weakest pieces, but it breaks up the monotony of heaviness most of my poems seem to carry lol. Thanks for dropping by and for the compliments :)

This is one mess of a poem and a really creative one at that. Nice to read your work again and to see you're up and about!

Please tell me that this is a fun write my friend. If its not, I honestly thought it was really below average of what I would usually expect from a talent such as yourself and definitely you know how much I admire your work my friend. This is just my honest review. However, it made me smile. : ). I will be reviewing some more of your poems because it has been quite awhile since I've checked in on you. So do expect more honest reviews from me. I hope you have been keeping well, warm greetings sent to you from Trinidad.

Definitely just a fun piece, M. It's not up to par but it was written in a vein of silliness. I very much appreciate your honesty; I would expect no less from you. Your Ky friend, ~Chan :)

I appreciate the compliment, Paul :)

The thing about a poem like this is you've got to be awfully sober to write it. For that matter, read it. Peace. :) Injoyed. And thank you for the placement in your contest. Was a fun one.

Chan, woe! Wondering how it will all end. I can feel the doozy you find yourself in. Sometimes, you need to seek within yourself. well said..... Hugs* SKAT

Thanks, Skat. It's really just supposed to be humorous play on words; nothing serious. I love a good "spoonerism" and get a kick out of malapropisms. I must have been drunk when I wrote it though because I just found it this morning; forgot all about it lol ;)
