My Honey

This was a poetry challenge - a twisted valentine My Honey (Valentine Challenge) Dandelions and sweetbreads are paltry proof when all year long he acts aloof. He hunts all day this clumsy brute and barrels home his horn a toot bloody carcass around his shoulders, he bludgeoned it with a jumbo boulder In this black cave I’m stuck all day while beasts outside devour their prey. With my cro-magnon cupid’s in trouble, no match for us, go shoot another couple. Happy St. Valentine’s Day ©Kathryn McLoughlin Collins January 25, 2012

Oh, now that's a hoot and a half! Liked this one a lot. Had me really chuckling. I wrote one similar called, "A Love Letter." Nice to meet you! Cheers, Cyndi

Hey, THERE you are. thanks for commenting to me, so I would remember about you being here. And when you comment to a comment here at the box, usually they won't see that comment (most people think it's a useless function) Just click on their name and one of their poems. To find a specific name, type it in at the top (search heading). To see who is currently posting, use "New poems-by poet" To soupmail someone with questions (like me!) click on the tiny bowl by my name! LOVE your poem. Andrea

I thought this was both cute and funny. I was fishing in the deep brine of the Soup when I pulled this one up and it was a delightful catch. Thanks for the smile. Rockman :-)

Hi Carol -- I doubt you are the only one around here who doesn't know the terms or forms. Been writing a long time and I don't either except a few. I'm glad you enjoy my poetry. love, Kathy
