Spun Fun

                               SPUN FUN 

I wonder about nonsense and things that are askew,
Like, if you strangled a Smurff would it's face turn Blue?
And is Rudolf's nose really as bright red as they say?
I mean, would you recognise him if you saw him in May?
 
Sentences we use are strange and wonderful to decide,
Why do we say stairs are indoors and steps are outside?
We're always looking for something that’s left us bereft
If you lost your left arm would your right arm be left?
 
I watch sports on TV the player's struggling in a ruck,
I mean, I get enough exercise just pushing my luck!
Why don't cemeteries explain the prices they're giving?
They just moan and blame it all on the cost of living!
 
Science and its wonders and the knowledge they spark.
If they are so cleaver, answer me, "what’s the speed of dark"?
But my brain starts to throb and the questions grow dim.
And the fool inside me says, good night to me and him.

Seosamh, wow! I can't believe I forgot to thank you for the nice and silly poem you entered in my contest. A late late late CONGRATULATIONS. Thank you for the smirks and smiles your poem gave me while reading it. Hope you can forgive me, it is not like me to stoop low and diss all who support me or my contest. Even if I get no response, everyone still matters, and I try my best... Love love LINDA...
