NOT FUNNY! (for Lyn)


The storm seemed
to run out of breath

rested on a roof a bit

and catching me
observing it

gathered itself up
found its second wind

and flew at me
in a fury.

It snatched my hat
and ran off with it

thinking it
was funny.



I didn’t think it was
funny.

    Tell me why...oh, why oh why-o
    did I just seem to know-o
    there would be a poem
    Lurking, lurking, just waiting
    for the sudden breeze
    to blow it in... (Report) Reply
