- In The Middle Of Nowhere: : Humour

Rating: 2.8
I live in the middle of nowhere, where nowhere's all around
And in the middle of nowhere, there are many nowhere sounds
Colourful birds in the middle of nowhere screech and squawk and trill
A choir of frogs sing in chorus in the centre of nowheresville

Sometimes I go to somewhere, where somewhere's all around
And in the middle of somewhere there are many somewhere sounds
Cars in the middle of somewhere screech their tyres and blare their horns
Jackhammers hammer, sirens wail singing the cacophonous somewhere song

Then I love to get back to nowhere, where nowhere's all around
Because in the middle of nowhere, there's something all around
Peace and harmony and stillness are everywhere I see
Right in the middle of nowhere is where I like to be

(Sydney, Australia - 2010)

Oh! I omitted to mention. Among my poems is "A Road in the Middle of Nowhere". A serious one. May I invite you to read. Thank you.

Your play with words is excellent. On the hand it is really serious poetry, quite philosophical, but you play with words make it humorous. All the five stars, dear poet.

Fantastic poem: simple, yet quite ingenious! Formally very beautiful too.
