A Crass Faery!


As a servant girl to a King
I just had a damsel well serve me

As grapes to my royal mouth
She inserted a green sprout

My eyes were closed
in poetic mode
I queried, 'What cometh? '

She sexily whispered,
'Asssssssparagussssssss'

The demented poet declared:

Asparagus!
Atmospheric gas!
A faery's ass!
I'm fairly crass!

    well since then i received an interesting message from the author; i'm not 'author'ized to divulge its contents.
    =============================
    NOW I GET IT! partly my lack of understanding (i realize now, after rereading the poem) was due to misreading/misinterpreting his

    As a servant girl to a King
    I just had a damsel well serve me ................

    i THOUGHT I was referring to a servant girl to a King. NOW i understand that I was referring to the author [or first person character narrating the poem]. the 'author'' is comparing the damsel (an unmarried woman) to a servant girl to a King! it would have been easier for ME, the poor (i don't mean, by poor, incompetent either! ! !) reader. if Monk had put the message (he sent me) after the poem as a poet's note.
    yeah, yeah, Monk, i KNOW you think i use too much punctuation, and probably too many parentheses as well. neh, neh, neh-neh, neh! ! ! ! :)

    p.s. and to think Neela thought it was a dream! (Report) Reply
