Popcorn Music

Pop (corn) Music Introduction It’s time to dance, time to tango There’s a Canadian on the banjo When he sees the guitar strings Jack’s mirth grows soaring wings; As he scans the rhapsody drums While busy the Banjo he strums! He strums with finger Voice doesn’t malinger! He strums with thumb He’s loud, he’s not dumb! There’s Pop Music in Poetry House Fasten belt, tighten that blouse Third Party Insurance will not help Scorched, when you start to yelp! While Archaic blows a brass horn I’m squatted munching popcorn! He blows the mad horn That the Devil can dehorn Bravura of Poetic sound Tremulous on the ground! Background Fantastic footwork by Andersen Anne Lise Compared with my hodgepodge tango style Her voluble Poetic twirls and untimely release Sent me across the floor to hurtle and fly! Supine and writhing with shyness’ disease Miss Wattle spruced my green-horned tie! As if mêlée was all but an esteemed order Sis Yvette, on her protuberant poetic drum Synchronised with Archaic’s across the Border Non-stop, the frenzied guy continues to strum Poetry flowing from the mental cam coder Raving Banjo on the mercy of Jack’s thumb! Poetry Soup is irrefutably a busy Pop House- As Cherie Thomas beats with Conductors’ stick, Wider goes Delysia Hendricks’ split blouse Furiously harping with gusto and a rare trick! To rupture of ecstasy and uproarious applause: “This kinda stuff makes this cheeky Gal tick!” You’d say he’ll suffocate where he’s trapped I mean Sir Lamoreaux in a spirally saxophone Blowing, piping poetic tremolo whilst wrapped Breathing into the constrictor’s tail a cyclone Heaving chest, yet poetic zest is not sapped! Alas! He’ll not till poetic tremor is fully done! Repeatedly blowing the Lyrical saxophone Vicky Tsiluma, intrepid Black Queen that she is, Across Kilimanjaro, waft her poetic tone With intonations of peace and human bliss In this fine cognoscenti’s vitality is borne That Lovers of Learning cannot afford to miss! Eileen Ghali with her fine and sombre heart Completed the missing link in the Poetic Pop Which she could never eschew to take part Her poetic prowess and love writ not to flop Cheerfully sang love lines on a pedestal chart, With dance sending Jack’s trousers to drop! Conclusions By sharing Poetry for free Other’s mind we start to see Lost temper, back we find In Soup we share our mind! **Dedicated to all the Soup Community members. I could have included all of you....space could not allow. I love you all! JM 16th Oct’ 2013

Hanitra!!! Thanks for the honour of promoting me to the position of DJ. I thought I was not good at anything except failing a tango with Anne & just eating popcorn. The title there is a humble acceptance of my inferiority in the business of poetry as compared to the other that I greatly admire.

A truly *masterful* piece, maestro! 'Tis no wonder you are one of my favs :) Thank you for the mention - I am honoured you would place me in such esteemed company! Kudos to you, my friend //MW

Hahaha, the master storyteller strikes again. I have to laugh at myself with the split blouse. Heaven knows, there's not much to show (lol). Yasmin should close her contest right now and declare you the winner. Lovely work, Joseph. Licia :-)

Anne, why I put yu in there as my tango partner is an appreciation of your first comment when I joined Soup. You were the first to welcome me and as such, your effort cannot go unnoticed and appreciated. I respect your tango prowess which hurtled me across the floor being a novice. This is an honour to someone I feel I'll never match!

I'm glade you were not perpetually stuck in that constrictor of an instrument. You must have given it a hell lot of a cyclone blow from its tail until it let go! I enjoy your poetry Lam. Call me a disciple of your poetic teachings. Yours truly, JM

I agree with Demetrios about the orchestra; this is a beautifully written and composed symphony. You absolutely blew me away with this opus. Superlative poem, my dear friend; excellent in all respects :)
