VISIONARY FANTASY LETDOWN

VISIONARY FANTASY LETDOWN

Formed a vision nice

Was put on let-down ice…

What I saw

Stuck in my craw,

Imagination didn’t suffice!

Comparing the video feed

With imaginary deed…

Mine fell short

In substance/comport,

Disappointment was guaranteed!

With those super actors compared,

I’m nowhere close to there!

My ego went SPLATT!

I’m done with that,

So don’t bother stopping to stare.

READY…AIM…! (Part of a Series)

ROLLING REHAB REBELLION

Via his loaner wheelchair

He sampled the outside air…

Autumn wood smell

Suited him well,

But nobody knew he was there!

He wheeled out not realizing

His absence would be surprising…

Missed the Chaplain

Visiting then,

Disappointed, did blind moralizing.

–Jonathan Caswell

HE DIDN’T SEE IT!

HE DIDN’T SEE IT!

He went and did it again,

Reposted another man’s trend….

That was copyrighted,

Somehow oversighted

He can’t understand why then…

The signs are not bigger still,

And the “reblog” button is killed…

He’s had less trouble

With commercial site scuffle,

They’re sharing, but deny any thrill.

NINE CANS IN THE CUPBOARD

NINE CANS IN THE CUPBOARD

(As opposed to “Pennies in the Fountain”)

Nine cans in the cupboard

Of cat food sit waiting…

For adoption papers

And celebrating!

A litter pan in the bathroom

With a slightly used scoop…

Waiting for the “joy” of

Cleaning kitty poop!

Finances are wanting

For even a “shelter” cat…

When in an apartment,

There’s little chance of getting around that!

NOT FEELING SO BAD….

NOT FEELING SO BAD…

 

As a Poet he’s not feeling so bad,

The low readership he had….

Grew nice, sturdy bones

In several time zones,

This world-wide distribution makes him glad!

NO PET PARENTING, ALAS!

NO PET PARENTING, ALAS!

 

November of last year

We lost our Tippie Cat dear…

Wanted to adopt

But have been stopped,

It’s gotten too expensive, we fear.

Our¬†Apartment Complex’s new rules,

Have taken our ability to choose…

Requiring deposits

And carriers in closets,

Correct documentation, or tenancy lose!

It pains us to not have a cat,

No way we can afford all that….

One rules page to three

And financially,

We gotta stay where we are, and that’s that!
