- Elegant Giraffes - Poem by Georgios Venetopoulos

He wondered if his verse was made for mules
and chickens that craw-craw their jazzy tales;
composing dull sonnets was chased by bulls,
by elegant giraffes and racing snails.

Amid the donkeys, in his country cot,
while gulping spirits the pig-farmer writes;
his scrawl becomes a cultivated naught
and straight he quaffs one more for his insights.

The detrimental muse of his confused
absconding inspiration, though, evades
his verses that were alcohol-abused
and drinking up the Absinth liquor, fades.

Inspiring advent of a healthy burp
made pigs and chickens to comment 'superb'!
