Tailor Bell

Good Godzilla - Poem by Tailor Bell

I wish all day
That I was small
I turn to fast
And things just fall, away

Build up courage
To come to town
My clumsy ways
Just make the locals frown

Caught in a pool
Of rejection
Electric apprehension
Checkers my day

Float back toward the tidal pool
The city in chaos
From Gamera and robot-me

Always try to not be rude
Avoid my feet
As I walk so carefully
Like good-Godzilla

    ...rarely one might be tempted to call anything 'giant', or anything about giants, or a Godzilla for this matter, justifiedly as being cute. Maybe just with your nice little poem comes the unknown exemption... (Report) Reply

    Tailor, you did well to put yourself inside this big clumsy guy. Are we talking entanglements in power cables here? 'electric apprehension' or taser(?) guns in the hands of the police? Another really entertaining piece of writing. Yeh, you should be in comedy! ! jim (End count - last line - 'to speak with control'. I thought this was such an emotional affair you couldn't speak, but it was to mission 'control'?) (Report) Reply

    The first stanza could stand alone, but the rest of it makes the whole - and hey, don't forget poor Geethra! Just watched Godzilla, the original and U.S. versions, the other night. (Report) Reply
