Frilled words that seek to ornament
why must you always interfere ?
To spill my guts was my intent
so let me make just one thing clear .

I do not relish baubled phrase ,
profess no love of wordy flights ,
though write as if were all the rage ,
perplexed , I blame you for this plight .

Insinuating nuance to
plain paper words that I would speak .
It seems no matter what I do
the end result is tongue in cheek .

It's madness I purport , and pray ,
nay vow , that I shall overcome !
To Jabberwocks I'll not fall prey ,
nor Tweedle-Dee or Tweedle-Dum !

For there is much I wish to say ,
without you getting in my way !

And oh, my, if our words don't get in the way of our relationships, our tongues get in front of our eye-teeth and we can't see what we're saying.  Not an original thought, here, on my part.


Enjoyed reading your poem.

Doc

Thanks , but sometimes it's a one-sided affair . Seems like I'm starting out to write one thing and end up with something comletely different .Therefore , this poem .
Doc
ethome ,
You're welcome . It was my pleasure .
Doc
VAS ,
Thanks , happens to me all the time . i can understand it when I'm talking , but when they get away from me when I'm writing then it's time to tell them off !

Oh .. fiddle-faddle
Words that play
Some that up
and scamper away ...
If upon a page of blue
you happen upon
a slew of mine too
PLEASE ... whip a quip
of self-same glee
and send the rascals
back to ME ! !


Now look what you've done !
I'll probably not find a sane thought this night !  

LOVED this jocular moment !

Alison,
Thanks for dredging this one up. "Nay"?, not too much anymore, but oh for the days
when I could get words to listen to me.

I'm so glad she brought this up again.  It gave me a good chuckle.

God bless,

I responded once before, being under another sun
so glad was I to see, this is under another run!

sandgrain (Rae),
Thanks, it's not often someone goes tip-toeing around the archives and picks one of mine out. This one I really enjoyed writing, and seeing again for a variety of reasons. First in mind would be Marges' poetic reply, unfortunately, another friend I never got the chance to meet. The fact that there are people who have picked up on the humor that I have tried to bring here while being somewhat of a self styled recluse has made all the difference in the world to me. I thank Ron for making it possible, and all of you for putting up with me.
Doc

Sunshine,
Please see above, I think you know how I feel about this place. Thanks again.
Doc
