The leachate of ones' thoughts distilled from piles of manure,
may yet retain a certain "air" that some would deem impure.
Though roses it is rumored by all names would smell as sweet,
the stench of some of what I write could knock you off your feet!

Not everything, now mind you, in all fairness I must say,
for sometimes if the wind's just right it blows the other way.
A vision of some lush green grass beneath a sky of blue,
by-products of a fertile mind composted just for you.

But, other times in air becalmed odiferous scents arise,
an olfactory bombardment bringing teardrops to the eyes.
" What kind of freakin' lunatic could write such bombs?" yuh'd think,
" may the good lord please have mercy, Mother Mary, that plumb STINKS!"

Well, let me tell you something, while you're left gasping for air,
to pungently pontificate, I furthermore declare.
" As beauty is beholdin' to the eyes with which it's viewed,
if I were you I'd grab my nose and hold on tightly dude!"

"Cuz I'm just gettin started at perfectin' this here art,
and so the smell of sweet success remains a world apart!"

Very funny and, oh, so well written.  But, then again, I am not a critic!

Your semantical antics and breadth of language never cease to amaze and delight this reader. This one was a pure pleasure to read aloud, though visually, there was a problem with the 3rd line, 3rd quatrain.

iliana,
Thank you. "All in fun and fun for all", oh wait, I think I just misquoted! Oh well.
Doc
Alicat,
You are much too kind. 3rd line, 3rd stanza corrected. I quote, "semantical antics", this, to me, is a compliment of the highest order. Hope to see you around the "shop".

Hilarious piece, Doc! Your humor is always a delight! As for your writings, well, I haven't found a stinker yet!

Hark! Oh what scent doth reach thy nose?
Tis by Doctor Moose this here rose
For it doth smell sweet these fine lines
More pungent than a vintage wine

With a glass raised in salute.

Doc,
   When I saw your name, I just had to stop in and see what you are up to!   Droppping the fertilizer and planting some seed, I see.
Should be a good crop next year, but it'd be hard to beat this one!

Sadelite,
Thanks. Me fields, they is fertiled, and me seeds( I doth think ) smell not much like the myrtle, not so pleasing their stink, yet behooves one to mention, when such scents should arise, it might be my intention, to open some eyes.
Doc
muted,
Hey! Keep it down will ya?! Thanks so much, glad you liked.
