HAREM SCARE’EM AND ME!

HAREM SCARE ‘EM AND ME !

(To the tune of “THE YELLOW ROSE OF TEXAS”…A SONG)

He thought he’d like a harem–

Oh, what a great idea–

Collecting beautiful women

For each day of the year…

Have one of every hair color:

Of red-heads, two or three,

Some that change with the season

Oh what a company!

But modern girls aren’t like the ones

That lived in olden time,

They’re much more educated,

Don’t easily resign…

Their lives and their futures

To a fat cat jailer-king,

To volunteer they’d like to hear

His cash disbursement ring.

Logistics would be maddening

Even if all were convinced,

Coming from all over

When he saw the bill he winced…

He began feeling outnumbered

Cooperation thin,

Instead of coming one-by-one

They all came after him!

He couldn’t pay their wages

So all up and left,

His fine plans for his evenings–

Not a single one was kept…

And then he got the bills for

The leaving of each one,

He decided then and there

Modern harems were no fun!

I thought of the same thing myself,

Like “THE HAREM OF BIRDS”

But only beautiful bloggers–

Women, in other words…

An exclusive club with just one man

My wife would veto fast,

My flesh already wants control—

The concept sounds a blast.

But thinking realistically

My cost is way too much,

I’ll lose those friends who cannot stand

A married man’s touch…

Long-distance relationships

Are harder to maintain,

I’d just as soon give up now

Before I feel the pain!

WATER BARD PROMPT: SOME ATTEMPTED HAIKU

WATER BARD PROMPT: HAIKU

Poorly chosen words

Dripping sounds of torture fall:

Now water barded!

-J.E.C.

Pity listennng

To poetry tink-le-ling…

On a sheet of tin!

Water bard…you’ll be

Up a creek, that you will see,

Addled can’t paddle.

Saw in my back yard

A ┬ádrenched with rain water bard…

Quite heavily scarred!

Poets in the rain,

Washing words out for later…

Language laundering!*

Bard: water fairies

Subject of mythic queries,

Mythical beings.

Bard water is rich

Creatively produced itch

Many minds to fill.
