New Orleans Parade

To play part of clown,
Mardi Gras "must" be in town,
"Safe" to pull pants down!

Short Mardi Gras poem by William Robinson| Details |


He traveled down from Arkansas,
To New Orleans, for Mardi Gras.
"One evening of abandonment,"
That's what his trusted friends say,
"He frolicked on Fat Tuesday night,
And repented on Ash Wednesday."

Short Mardi Gras poem by Ernesto P. Santiago| Details |

After Dusk

A roaring laughter of all walks of life;
The glittering faces and the salsa beat 
Of Mardi Gras, seals the two-way lane 
With such unrelenting hope;
With maturity and humanity; 
That is shown, elegantly, after dusk.

Short Mardi Gras poem by Gabby Sabre| Details |


Fitting like second skin,
far better than what he
finds in the closet. Now 
feathered, a Mardi Gras;
floating on dance of lies.
False hopes of romance masked,
For this man's lonely schemes.

Mardi Gras

Beads fly by
Kids grab for candy
Bands play Jazz
Spangled girls
Sweat and sugar sticks to me
Laughter fills the air 

Catch the beads
The floats go by us
Look at that
What a way to welcome Lent
First one last Beginet

For the Share a Shadorma contest

Short Mardi Gras poem by PAT Adams| Details |


With a tattoo of Dallas on one breast
She decided she wanted another
After a while she made a decision
To get a tattoo of Paris on the other!

A few weeks later at the Mardi gras
With no help from panels or committees 
She decided to rip off her blouse
And show everybody her cities!

Short Mardi Gras poem by Angela Barker| Details |

Empty Streets

Craving a poboy,
a women in Michigan
hangs her head and cries,
longing for a home
that no longer exists.

Dreaming of seafood,
Mardi Gras, snowballs
and jazz bands-
A man in Oklahoma
awakes in tears.

As one lonely jazz horn
floats a requiem
over empty streets,
and a pot of gumbo simmers
in a government issued trailer.

You better come along

Music! Dancing! Beauties galore

The town will be full of all

After the King is chosen 

for the Mardi Gras Ball

March 8th, That's the day

When the King will rule the town

Close your eyes and sneak a peek

As the pants fall to the ground

So all you folks, come along

Join the crowd ... be witty

See all! Hear all! Know all!

Downtown, New Orleans City..

Mardi Gras

I love to go to Mardi Gras
And see the girls cast off their bra
As if it were their sole faux-pas
In dancing through their last hurrah

I do not know just where they went
I can not guess what charms were Lent
But I suspect the knight was spent
In screwing odds they might repent

You're sure to hear old-timers say,
"Gather ye rosebuds while ye may"
But ashes mark the end of play
The fun begins on Judgment day!

Home Is Where The Heart Is

Home Is Where The Heart Is

Oh my goodness
"Lets Party, Family Reunion"
Family of 10

Its all good, we stay close knit
Look forward to cookouts
Mardi Gras here is a big hit

Our seafood is the best, fresh from the bayou
My moms the best cook
Shrimp boulettes, jambalaya, just to name a few

Born on the bayou, its in my blood
Could never leave here
Louisiana is where I spent my girlhood

Short Mardi Gras poem by MAF Longfellow| Details |

Do You Believe In Easter?

Do You Believe In Easter?
Not colored eggs and treats.
But a crown of thorns on Jesus head.
Nails in His hands and feet.

Do You Believe In Easter?
Not Mardi Gras or ashes.
But Jesus who was crucified
And scourged with many lashes.

Do You Believe In Easter?
Not Peter Cotton Tail.
But Jesus Christ our Saviour
Who saved our souls from hell.

Do You Believe In Easter?
Not really knowing why.
Now you know the old old story.
Believe and receive everlasting life..

Short Ribs Q: Don't hate him because he's beautiful

Quirina and Quiqui Quetzal
Were a truly splendiferous pair.
They won first prize at Mardi Gras
As if nobody else was there.
This had ruffled a number of feathers
Among some who'd come very far
And spent weeks and months on elaborate costumes
While the Quetzals were "come as you are".
But they'd been down this road before,
And Quiqui had a plan.
He'd arranged to start a brawl or two
So later Quirina could brag
That he really was her "macho man",
Not just a "sissy" guy in drag.
