~ Silly Lines~
My main line muse ran away on this sunny this day –
My confuser got confused - rhythms upside down -
My pen went dry – rhymes on strike -
Thesaurus got away.
Searched for foot lines on the face of a blue lined moon
Then looked around for yards and yards of a water line;
Ran a tag line at the park breaking through the line
While my hash line ran away with a silver spoon.
Drank some tasty lime punch line – my giggles burped -
Found a copper penny lost, sitting on the red A-line -
Crossed a plot line - story screamed - angry zip line
Couldn’t find the frayed drag line – I got usurped!
Went to a bar almost bought all the current date lines
Hollow words of neck lines – what a bunch of air lines;
Took the bus – had to duck – bruising my head line
Tripped then fell - almost drown in the deep stream line.
Gained some weight – oh, oh, no – belt line now a little snug;
A little late –find myself running behind the time line;
Invitation RSVP - dancing in the party line;
Sporting polka-dots - a new inclined spot line - I shrug.
I see police come to arrest some crooked lines
Riding on the bee line with a honey of a ticket;
A standing line almost faints sweating in the sun
Doubts rise up - questions sneer - reservations of fine lines.
My muse returned from her day, fainted on the spot,
Had to duck while choruses of lines ran run-amuck;
Told me all of this was just plain asinine
Not too late to get it straight - back into line tatter tot.
Fragile words shattered when dropping a line!
