The poems are cards.
The game is Bard.
You're dealt a pen,
Papyrus, longhand ability.

You can journalistic
or paint a picture of
beautiful confusion.
Place percussions in your lines.

Trumpets challenging guitars
to a duel. The tempo is get up
and bard dude. It suits you.
Lightweight ruse.

I canvas manga
titan tango.
Monie Love, Slick Rick.
Coming to America.

Def leopard's Hysteria
not far behind them.
The Wee Papa Girls
lost in the shuffle.

Dorchester gets all that
just Ester. Every Joker,
Jester angled up and
Molested.

Tarantulas, widows, arachnids.
Defunct TWA business.
New planes. Old webs.
The watch it is to catch Spidey.

Diplomacy is now a felony.
Macys sued and won!
Scholars of etymology yell
Retreat as rad lore is born.

    well, i read this once. at least that is more than i did when i saw the last ph poet's poem.

    you seem to use journalistic as verb. it reminds of something my mom used to tell
    her kids NOT to do........using one word form for another. maybe i am of the wrong generation
    and/or wrong social circle to appreciate the poem. but thanks for sharing. the idea of a card
    game caught my attention at first, after the interesting title (i never did see the significance of
    capital letters in fAUx.) (i actually did look more than once at parts of the poem) i HAVE
    heard of Def leopard at least.

    does this, that i copied and pasted, have anything to do with the poem?
