' ' ' ' ' ' ' HIS GEEKNESS

He thought
of himself

as a Greek God

but women...didn't
...think anything of him.

He was invisible
to them

or if they did think
about him

they thought
of him

as the supreme
Geek God.

Geekness personified
laughing out loud

that he for ever thought he could
chat them up.

Or horrified...that it was they
he attempted to come on to!

They did not fancy
a Geek's wet dream.

'I am a nice person! '
'I am a nice person! '
he repeately repeated
to himself

but even his reflection
wasn't connivinced.

Even his shadow
was embarrassed to be seen
walking with him

climbing up the walls
trying to break free.

He thoughtd he was
Sunday's child

but even his mother

he was Wednesday's.

And she was forever sorry
to have given birth

to him
always prefering

her dashing doctor
younger son.

'The geek...
(he repeated
the Freudian slip)
'...shall inherit
the earth! '

But only when
no one else

wants it.

Poem of the Day

poet Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

I heard the bells on Christmas day
Their old familiar carols play,
And wild and sweet the words repeat
Of peace on earth, good will to men.
