Looney Tune

Max is mad at Molly
Samantha’s sore at Seth 
Freida’s freaking out at Frodo
While  Hobbits hold their breath

Jack jokes about poor Jill
She hits him with her pail
Humpty cracks open Dumpty
For drinking all his ale

Mickey Mouse and Minnie
They both make quite a scene
Playful Pluto gave her paw
and stroked her jumping bean

Rub is furious with Dub Dub
She has another man in his tub
His bubble has been bursted
So he scrubs Dub with a club

Cats in cradles cows and moons
Forks running away with spoons
Coyote catches the Road Runner
 In the end we’re all Looney Tunes

Nothing makes us happy
Sticks and stones me oh my
Kryptonic grade destruction 
Broken Superman can’t fly

The Beatles Battled Yoko Ono
Because she broke up the band
They sang ‘Give Peace a Chance”
a dream they didn’t understand

So I walk down to the River
John the Baptist please begin
Separate me from human nature
Cause I’m tired of our sin

I really love this, you must know you are one of the best. I try, sometimes pretty good, but takes me a lot of time. This is one more really good poetry and fun. Do you publish? Will be out of it for a bit but will enjoy coming back in a week.

Hi Linda, yes I have written three books. The second book is now in second print. The third book is done but I need an illustrator to do the artwork. Welcome to the soup.:0)

Delightful … ly cruel cartoons a reflection of equally foppish, vicious human nature. Last stanza sums it all up (correctly). Excellent, Richard! A real winner. Best wishes, Gershon

Richard, I am rereading this one. Can't seem to find one I have not read already. I left a short reply to a reply of yours on another poem that I wish had won the contest it was entered in. If this was for a contest, I sure think it should have won!

Hi Richard, the word has indeed went looney tunes. I think some people have always been looney tunes. You just have to look at some of the world leaders. In the end all we shall have is Faith in ourselves and our friends. Love the content. This is an excellent piece. If i am off the mark Richard, you know how it is, we all look at a poem differently. This, has to be a fave. I can look at this poem in a few different ways and it works for each one. Your friend always....Mike.

I think you missed the point Rajat. Either way thanks for stopping by.

Interesting piece. You surely had those toons doing the unthinkable. I didn't expect the serious ending. It caught me off guard. However, what other ending is there for the mess we are in? Hugs

What a fabulous write, Richard. I thoroughly enjoyed reading this. I always kind of felt sorry for the Coyote. Great last stanza. T.J

I sometimes wonder if we did the right thing letting our kids watch those cartoons, the Road Runner certainly seemed a bit disconcerting.Did we set a negative pattern? This is a kind of a malady of the modern world, unfortunately. Toddlers are generally engrossed by television cartoons, some of which do carry disturbing humor and violent action’s and messages. Your poem magnificently highlights the adverse mental programming that us humans are subliminally subjected to. A fave for me Rick, Bravo....Maria hugs

Personally I don’t think it did me any harm watching them. I feel much worse for what kids are watching today. Hugs Rick

Wow! Richard, This is such a deep write that's filled with much wisdom. You took some familiar characters and wrote a good piece. Your last line summed it all just right. Excellent write :-) Alexis

Richard, a very clever write indeed. Filled with wit and wisdom. There is a bit of humor in your truth, but also sadness abides. You effectively capture both. Your pen, once again, does not disappoint!

An incredible provocative write Richard. Seeking peace in our chaotic world indeed takes us back to the nursery rhymes we learned as children. When research is done one comes to realize that many came from sorrows of the times....like Ring around the rosey. Excellent my friend! : ) xxoo

The history of Nursery rhymes is indeed interesting. I enjoyed this response to my piece.

Cartoons have been dealing with every day life issues in a humourous and satirical way! It seems exaggerated or caricatured but it is actually a real rendition of our very life.. A profound fun, a joy to read. Thank you for sharing Richard. Stay safe and blessed.
