I dedicate this Poem to Jan Allison, just because I can!

This is a very very very very famous quotation, buy none other than moi!!!!!

"When one takes himself too seriously, he becomes the clown"

( that was no spelling error )

 

The form is really "Infinite Dot Universe"

 

 

Dramatic prose for the pompous asses
I throw my Platos at you
If you come any closer
I will Socrates you right in the nose
Demands, demands!!!! The clowns now have demands?
I say, rise up oh poets of the infinite dot universe
Proclaim the revolution a new
Justify our fight with words wrapped in doo doo
When I see a condescending donkey trip on his verbatim
I laughs cause I know he will fall into Satan's den
I am at eleven, usually a sober man
I carry my saber high and shout "Ekphrasis I don’t give a bloody damn"
Infinite ............................ Universe

Your word play is humorous. Sometimes structure is too serious and the need to rebel in a playful parry is welcomed. Poetry showcases emotion and undefinable humor leaves the reader with many emotions and questions...I do very much enjoy trying to figure you out. xxx

You sir, as I have said, are a genius! You are up there with Shakespeare and Gérard de Nerval. Your command of subtlety and your mastery of language is second to none! If there was such a thing as poetic elections, I surely would vote for you as our King!
