Twas the night before the Fourth of July
And all through the forum
It seems every poet
Had lost their decorum.

All the colors were missing
And so were the features.
The halls of the forum
Were filling with creatures!

    

Poet DeVine in her nightie
And me in my cap
Had just settled down
To the cool sounds of rap.

When, up from the rooftop
There arose such a clatter
So loud the DeVine one
Had emptied her bladder!!

From the chimney they came down
The creatures were swarming!
She screamed they were ugly
(I thought they were charming)

There were gray mice and white mice
And rats by the dozens.
I'll swear two resembled
My ex-wife's fat cousins!!

    


We set traps out and baits, too
A futile endeavor
To capture the rodent
But they were too clever.

They clawed and they chewed
On each poem in the place..
Even ate Toerag's
Though they had little taste.

By dawn they were so fat
From all of their crime
That they all overdosed
From exposure to rhyme.

They all jumped on DeVine
And, with kiss on the cheek
Said, "Happy July 4th to all
And to all a Squeak! Squeak!!!!!"




(pardon the stupidity, Dixie....or not.

More than ever..since May of 1999, you amaze me. Your talent and your wit are without exception the best here at PiP!

I salute you. Thanks for playing along, Mike.

From what you've said about me in this poem I guess it's time I put the P back in PiP! LOL

This is great!  Thanks for the laugh!  A little bit of "silliness" is good for the soul!

saying so is never a problem, Dixie. Calling someone's actions "stupid" in public would be distasteful to anyone. I doubt that you yourself would appreciate a comment like that directed at you. There are better ways to express your displeasure...and balls have nothing to do with it.

Have a nice 4th!

Mike, I didn't point the comment at anyone when I expressed my opinion about this forum in "stoopid".

There was no need for the comment at the bottom of your poem. Sorry you felt the need to single me out.
