I want to write a poem
about the man I turned into
writing words
not to be read aloud
but silently
as you decipher the concealed meaning
with nothing within the rhyme
freestyle is what Iím about
not meant to be an epic
not in the least
by the time I am finished
with my brutal non-oratory
thoughts and passions
I may well
expire from finally putting myself
at rest
when the last line is writ
on the computer
not paper
leaving the trees
for those poets who follow
after me
donít plan to write me into a
more pleasant fellow
whot you see is whot you get
if I was hard-hitting and uncompromising
in my former lines of poetry
canít change that
its who I am
there may be ejaculation-splattered lines
in my thoughts
I see a poem which will cause me to sob
a step above
the man I used to write about
I sense not melancholy
but up-lifting lines
eh . . .
after all is said and done
and all the words have been writ
think Iíll settle back
and light one up

and you did it your waaay....  You have stayed true to yourself. Your soapbox has gathered many a crowd and comment. You have manned up to deeds less than manly and shared your growing pains. You never pulled punches...unless you want to count those last line kickers of yours, in that case, you punch like a boxer. Merry Christmas my friend. ~L

Ahhh . . . Lori. Lori. Lori. You managed to "catch" me on my last line "kicker" even within this poem, where I was maybe less than truthful. I want to thank you so very much for your continued support through the years we have known each other. I say again . . . Thank you. Merry, Merry Christmas to you too, my friend.

I'm with you Jerry. But if anybody asks...we didn't inhale.

Best for the holidays Jerry. Give Zoe a biscuit and tell her it's from me.

Loving Linny Jean is poetry.

I think you may be right, Jo. Lori seems to be right on about many things. Thank you for being here.

Funny Ari, about the no inhaling, if "that" man could say that we surely can too.

Yep, I'll feed her that biscuit for you for sure! She'll appreciate it.
