' ' ' ' ' ' ' ' ' ' ' ' ' ' ' ' ' ' ' ' Even The Grass Laughed - Poem by Dónall Dempsey

The house
wore its new lick of paint

like a kid
showing off a new pair of shoes

that nobody else
could afford.

It smiled
like a spoilt brat

until a mangy cur
slouched up

& disdainfully
urinated slowly

against its new blue
doorness.

The windows
rolled thier eyes.

The door gasped.

Even the grass laughed
sniggering silently to itself.

    What's a mangy cur? Is this in oirish speak? ? ? I'm liking the poem though, something Alice-like in its quality... and yours are ALWAYS quality! Came snooping bout your pages thinking Sofia might have sparked a poem or too... shall just have to sit patiently tapping fingers on desk until you post some. HG: -) xx (Report) Reply
