A Mynah Work: Seeds of Thought/Poetic Injustice

 

Tripper RIP June 17,2011

This is what happens when you plant catnip seeds.

 

Corn Seeds

After the frost,

Is lost.

We rubes,

Plant corn in TP tubes,

Port and starboard;

In tubes of cardboard.

 

Where does one plant parsnips?

You can plant them in the road.

Or feed them to a toad.

Poke them with a goad.

And make them wear a snood.

 

 

A mynah work: Molokai

 

An owl, would make them howl.
A hawk, would end their squawk.
They’d snag those noisome mynahs.
And turn them into dinners.

Talons, the pests would fear.
They’d pay their own airfare.
To another island rally.
And liberate the pali.

 

Sea Song

Musical pun

Is all in fun

Tune a fish!

Kabob a shish

Water the dish

And get your wish

 

 

Poetic Injustice: The spirit of the potato rises with the moon

 

Drink the white lightning.

Are your spirits brightening?

Especially when distilled.

That’s why the soil is tilled.

 

Have you tasted any?

You can be so canny.

Not that I remember.

Don’t be a dissembler.

Maybe I blacked out.

You’re no Boy Scout!

 

It will be our secret.

You will be discreet.

Well, thank the Lord for that.

No tit-for-tat.

 

With confidentiality-

Let’s begin.

Will Poitín wash away,

The stain of sin?

 

Yes, if used at baptism!

You’ll start another schism.

‘Twould have to be dilute. **

And the pastor mute!

 

** A minute impurity in Baptismal water would neither add to nor detract from the sacrament.

 

Rain, at Last

 

Raindrops pound while sleep we must.

They rinsed the leaves and touched the dust.

Sadly, all the roots still lust.

Stormy only wet the crust.
