A new poem

Postby fishfishquaileye » Wed Dec 19, 2012 11:44 pm

hello, I have never posted a poem here before and I am a bit nervous. obviously this is based on Leonard Cohen's work! It is called Lemon Disaster for reasons that will soon beclome oblivous!


I had a lemon disaster
a cake
with main ingredient Lemon
I run out of them
so I run out of house
to go
to Lemon Shop
but they are closed
so I went back home
and made baked beans on toast
fuck the Lemon
hate the taste anyway!


commnets welcome, but gentle please.

Wonderful poem fishy
You are probably better off without the lemon
as someone might squeeze the juices all over you and then
EAT you ;-) ;-)

:D ohh that's true, most fish would be avoiding the lemons

our fish will now be wearing a necklace made out of lemons

I imagine that would really help with the smell.

maybe we should talk of love,
of shining stars and skies above

maybe strike the perfect chord
that joins us all against discord

I never let my children fight
I try to teach them what is right

Peace to all who bear a grudge
and think its better not to budge

Of course they are older now and set in their ways
stll, quite sweet and kind to the world

what more could one ask or one's offspring? i wish i could get my daughter to quit making boxed desserts. no one is going to eat them.

they always ask if there is more they can do.. an unfortunately there is.

an endless list of laundry, cleaning, straightening up. Iam very pleased to introduce them to L. Cohen and some of my 70s favorites (Joan Armatrading?)

I am falling over the place and hitting the ground hard... when i hit i cannot get back up.. just totally paralyzed. i wonder if i should go to myjob today. the walk, the 17 steps ups to the top of the choir loft is pretty challenging. i could have my son push me up.. :lol: or just not go.

they are Catholic but very comfortable not being Catholic and who they are.
