The Moon Stalker (A Science Poem, Of Sorts) - Poem by Chuck Audette

The moon stalker surges
with twice daily urges
creeps from the deep
watch his spring not the neap
an ocean in motion
so put down that lotion
you're within his reach
as you tan at the beach
he may tickle your toes
but then grows whilst you doze
watch your sun-burned back
for your friend will attack -
Et tu, beware the tides of march...

    Chuck,
    Perhaps, I got it wrong ...
    but, eventually you did Caesar?

    I had to look up 'neap' and now appreciate the line 'watch his spring not the neap' very much! A truly pleasing poem, Chuck, with your trademark wit in full evidence. Est : ] (Report) Reply

    Puns about plots and now plays (geddit?) on Shakespere. Can I have some of your clever pills please? Oh, and have a 9.
    Hugs
