Rookie (DUBLIN)

Taxi by Marie Tully


The city cabby over weight flabby
Back to back bivounce he try’s blows your stack
With his brick -a-brack Cadillac parked in a cul-de-sac
Get your own back on the poor haemophiliac
A hard nut to crack
Who’s introducing a mild heart attack?
He’s also an insomniac now a blank used to be laid back lumberjack
Who liked to read paperbacks while giving piggy backs to quarterbacks in place of aphrodisiac
He’s a praxis on his own an overtaxed abstraction
With delayed –action who’s dissatisfaction leads to a fatal attraction
With no interaction none-existing benefactor who’s autobiographical graphics ends on
Dialysis paralysis psychoanalysis… He died

Poem of the Day

poet Henry David Thoreau

Whate'er we leave to God, God does,
And blesses us;
The work we choose should be our own,
God leaves alone.

If with light head erect I sing,
