A Party - Poem by Ben Gieske

I’m having a party
Inviting Pinocchio, Little Roo, and you.
We will celebrate
With whatever cake I can bake
And great, big vanilla shakes.

I’ll invite some others too,
Lots & lots of others - not just a few.
I’m hoping you’ll come for some fun
We’ll write some funny clerihews.

    It's just my point of view
    But I hate clerihew
    Though I love little Roo
    So I will party with you.

    I love your Party poem.

    Ben Furrows his Brow

    Ben Gieske’s at it once again
    Ladling from his verbal fountain
    Whether humor or surreality
    A poetic treat we'll surely see.

    Looking forward to the celebration
    Will be there without hesitation,
    Opps, just saw the date,
    Looks like I am a little too late!

    (couldn't resist)

    Loved your poem

    Broken-winged failings in Chicago?
    She looked like a million dollars
    How could I forget?
    In her softness redeemed
    When heated arguments in Spanish
    For years I couldn't let her go it seems
    Taking one another to new vistas of perception
    The sea turned bitter
    The world's cold
    Fiscal control
    Rothschild family
    Presiding over the yang energy of money
    Exuberance in my soul like Balzac prose
    Amateurs remain mediocre can't take it to another
    Life is lush at the banquet
    Was travelling with my friend
    But even the greatest of friendships
    can turn sour in the end
    Make my way through the world
    Career development
    People coming into my life
    The anthologies are written
    Dreaming of the time when I can visit the Orient
    When Falun Gong practitioners are no longer murdered
    Launderette makeovers in culture
    Like highly extreme constant thoughts in control
    Hold up the banner within the manor
    A glory like St Georges day
    A trip to Stone Henge
    Restless my heart working through
    Travel guides
    The picture painted all vivid
    My body light and breezy
