Work Poems: Running Around Screaming


Came across the acronym RAS, looked
it up, time dilation - I stood transfixed by
the delight of what I came across:

Rat Sarcoma – who wants to talk about it that
much, a rat optometrist?

Radio Astronomy Service – listening to the
whispers of the universe, the Big Bang’s
background heat softly diffusing over time

Rundfunk-Anstalt Südtirol – how romantic,
German radio in Southern Tyrol, the lovely
German language with the schwissing sounds
of the sea

Redundant Acronym Syndrome - indeed!
it is a danger we encounter everywhere,
language becomes incomprehensible with
al these acronyms around

Restroom Association of Singapore – oh wow,
traveling to foreign countries, so exotic, never
been to Singapore – never been anywhere,
only in the country of my birth

Running and Screaming – I do it all the time,
my colleagues warn me of nervous breakdowns,

Running Around Screaming – lovely, like when
I practice my yodeling at home and everybody
runs away

Returned Activated Sludge – ugh, waste disposal
documents I translated

Registered Addiction Specialist – I hope the
specialist enjoys his addictions, just as I
enjoy mine

Run and Shoot – playing cowboys and crooks
with my brothers when we were still small

Rebellion Against School – only because of
ubiquitous homework, an evil invention, parents
hate school even more, every time projects I did
for my kids receive bad marks

Recursive Acronym Syndrome – lovable isn’t it,
this is why I’m sitting here – paid to look up Acronyms!

Poem of the Day

poet Sir Walter Scott

The moon's on the lake, and the mist's on the brae,
And the Clan has a name that is nameless by day;
Then gather, gather, gather Grigalach!
Gather, gather, gather Grigalach!
