Nothing...Rhymes - Poem by Dónall Dempsey

An orange
door hinge

rusting on
a broken blue old door.

Times gone past
all is lost

    Alas, if indeed your happiness hinges
    and a lack of rhyme thus impinges
    for if it's rhyme that you a door
    use foreign words to get some more
    and oddball phrases bring you far
    for what's a door when left a jar?

    I'm all Outta love,
    I'm no good without ya!

    And therefore, nothing is right anymore. Simply put, but direct, on target!
