The Bashful Barbudo - Poem by David Hart


'The Bashful Barbudo' by David Hart

With bravado, during a bayamo,
A bashful barbudo
with a propensity for dissentiousness
Flits bottomward, toward a sand encrusted crusado

A crusado, mayhap, wellaway once possessed by
A seafaring hildalgo skittering
Over cirulean crests

What wry musing must the esurient bashful
barbudo mull
While it wends it way to the wayworn crusado?

Once and now tantalized, the fearnought barbudo,
Now disappointed over a once thought commestible
Now ponders
An omen? An augur? A delitescent apocalypse-of doom, or
Delight?

Oh, bashful barbudo, unmew this encrusted crusado: expugate it!
Expurgate it form its extant niche

Release its' recondite spectres anon, without cunctation
What tales may it portend with a tactile congress?

Wend not to your shoals yet; shun the skates importuning
Now before a malevolent maelstrom wrests the soothsayer's crusado
Away

Vocabulary: barbudo-species polydactylus virginicus; crusado-Spanish coin;
esurient-hungry, greedy
