(81) Nature Boy - Poem by David S Dennis

A busker on a unicycle
Dances with the birds
As teaming hordes of grey brained apes
Wend their way to work

He juggles socks to their delight
N couldn’t give a rats
If the price of oil is up or down
Or the wheat board has collapsed

And every now and then
I feel I’d like to be that fool
To bare my soul to nature
While the pigeons burble “cool”

    Nature Boy has a real atmosphere to it and a strong sense of rebellion. Top marks.

    Hmm, I've wished the same thing from time to time. Failing that, the sight of 'foolery' makes for the best moment in a day sometimes. '...teaming hordes of grey brained apes', apt description. I'd rather live in a hovel than sell my soul to finance a McMansion. Lots of food for thought in this seeming piece of fluff. Esther : ] (Report)Reply
