It was suggested to me today that recently my posts have had a dark side to them, and I was asked (with concern) if perhaps, there was an underlying reason for that..I assured my loving brother that all is well within the inner me, and that sometimes the poems I post are not current at all, but a random selection from the dusty archives. You know, eenie meenie, etc. So here is one on a bit of a lighter note.. I hope you like it.

Wildly wonderful wishes for a walloping Wednesday, (when I read that, Elmer Fudd comes to mind)   ” bdah, bdah, That’s All Folks”

Jake.

NO WAY AROUND IT

 Spheres and orbs, and circles, round,

throughout, the universe abound.

0

 Sun and moon and earth around,

this human’s mind, it does astound.

0

 Clocks and coins, and jeweled crowns,

handcuffs on the wrist, surround.

0

 Wheels and tires, go round and round,

for us to get, where we are bound.

0

 The carousel’s horses, go up and down,

the string, upon a yoyo’s wound.

0

 Traffic lights to slow us down,

speakers, to provide us sound.

0

 Inner tubes, so we won’t drown,

the rotary, in center town.

0

 The bright red nose, of the circus clown,

and the Jack o’ lantern, with a frown.

0

 The great oak’s acorn, on the ground,

and sweet citrus, on a tree is found.

0

 But, the skull atop, the human mound,

is that which does, the most confound.

0

For no finer example, will there be found,

but, sadly atop, mankind it’s bound.

000
