Lingo Banal


Lingo Banal 1

If I didn’t have something to write
I wouldn’t write a poem to say
I don’t have anything to write though
I might write a poem to say that
I wouldn’t write such a poem.

Lingo Banal 2 (an offal dectina refrain)

Love,
I shan’t
Nibble your
Giblets or ears
Of corn. The stringy
Bits get stuck in my teeth.
Ah….coffee would be nice. Sit
Next to me on the chintz settee
And we’ll dine on choc-o-late dipped mints.
Love………I shan’t nibble your giblets or ears.

    So I am climbing up the offal dectina refrain
    with a coffee in my hand and corn stuck in my teeth
    and the last line I say is;
    I wouldn't write such a poem then again
    I might write a poem to say that.
    Loved the word play. (Report) Reply

    Very interesting construction. If you changed the name to, Dingo Banal , Then I
    would have something to bark about. (Report) Reply

    Don't fancy nibbling giblets either, but the choc-o-late dipped mints will do for me - mmmmm nice! ! (Report) Reply

poet Ralph Waldo Emerson

Knows he who tills this lonely field
To reap its scanty corn,
What mystic fruit his acres yield
At midnight and at morn?

In the long sunny afternoon,
