Fixing Insanity - Poem by Tailor Bell

There I was hammering nails again
into the highway
When Marge walked up from behind
'Hey benchworm...making a fort, eh? '
That Marge she really
cooks my goose
It was three blind mice
all day long
thinking about honkin'
the juice, the old 'arooooogahh'
Hot as frying pan dodges,
wicked cornball stings fresh from
Ulysses S. Grant
then graduated decline of warm floods
Whittling stew bits
takes all kinds of time
So disassembly and debt
basically
prevent change
and cracker quackers...DUCK!
Thank goodness for the sane
and exchange

    There is an Alice in Wonderland unexpectedness about this journey into the mind - where geese and ducks cohabit with Marge and Arooooogahh! A thoroughly frabjous poem. love, Allie xxxxxxxxx (Report)Reply

    I don't really feel qualified to critique this poem but it is totally enjoyable and has a vivid sense of insanity about it - I laughed my Heaney off. There are so many funny little parts. Nice one Tailor. (Report)Reply

    Do you write humorous essays for the press? The sane, and the exchange! Both very important. But who defines the former? Loved 'whittling stew bits takes all kinds of time! ! Terrific. There is something ineffably unspecific about it. Plus the opening sequence is so palpable I could see you at your pointless work being approached by a very understanding and gracious lady! ! Loved it Tailor. (Report)Reply

    Got no idea what thats about, but it sounds happy and it suggests all kinds of possabilities. Somehow the idea of hammering nails into the highway, while pointless, doesn't strike me as insane - more like a good idea. Maybe I'm in need of a certificate. (Report)Reply

    Hey Tailor! I appreciate all your positive comments. They are always nice to find attached to a new poem. This poem however drove me insane reading it! . Just funning even though I am actually feeling a little crazy right now. You are a master at creative word craft. I feel like a student when ever I read your poems. (Report)Reply

    It's no mean feat to get someone laughing and scratching their head at the same time, but you've achieved it. Loved this.

    I don't even know what this poem means, but I do know it made me laugh - and laugh. So many tickling images! Such abounding, rollicking humor! I truly enjoyed this one. - Will (Report)Reply

    A tad of of abstractivity always adds some fine spice to a fine penning as this one is, Tailor...love the early dialogue, followed by the complete unfurl of the piece...
    innovative stuff, my friend'''''''''''''''''''fjr
