Charlotte's Web: A Rapture Tale

I was drinking my coffee in a resort area bathroom
When all of a sudden, something started to happen
The ceiling turned into an ocean of green
But the floor stayed the same as it had been
The walls became a deep shade of peach
And the stall was moving out of my reach.
I screamed in fear as I laughed in bliss
With no clue as to what would happen next
My body shut down when I hit the ground
With a great bluster coincidentally making no sound
I questioned then if I was sane
When all of a sudden a calamity came
A Spanish rodent with large tentacles
Began assuaging my swollen ankles
All the while singing a rapturing rhapsody
With a voice so high in soprano capacity
The tone, the tone was raging in my wires
Reviving the feel of my middle school choir.
The rodent slowly became fiercely vicious
When he found he was dying of meningitis
I buried his body in the green overhead
As I thought he would be happier dead.
I was alone now in an aberrant trip
When I developed a scheme so high in wit
The doorknob was still in working use
But slightly bent in a way so obtuse
I reached for it praying to the rodent’s Jehovah
That I would live to put use to my surviving ova
I turned the knob in hesitant suspense
Until I felt it was in proper sequence
The door swung open exposing me to air
But the earth that I saw was no longer there
Blackness swept the room I was in
Collapsing my lungs with original sin.
The rapture has come and now I am doomed
Oh what a tangled web I have loomed

Poem of the Day

poet Henry David Thoreau

My books I'd fain cast off, I cannot read,
'Twixt every page my thoughts go stray at large
Down in the meadow, where is richer feed,
And will not mind to hit their proper targe.
