Has anybody seen my mouse?
I opened his box for half a minute,
Just to make sure he was really in it,
There is a world outside the one you know,
To which for curiousness 'Ell can't compare--
It is the place where "wilful-missings" go,
Whisker droppings in the sink,
moustache trimmed just so.
Spots of water on the mirror,
always in a rush to go.
Slowly the poison the whole blood stream fills.
It is not the effort nor the failure tires.
The waste remains, the waste remains and kills.
It is not your system or clear sight that mills
Do you remember your first special kiss?
That one sweet kiss melted your beautiful soul.
Do you long for that kiss to happen again?
Close your eyes, picture that moment in time..
Let us cease our idle chatter,
Let the tears bedew our cheek,
For a man from Tallangatta
Has been missing for a week.
[In Memoriam of Islamabad Tragedy]
In a typeset that just shrieked “40”
there were other boring stats about
An eclipse of the heart,
rips the soul apart.
Nostalgic promises, never to behold.
Standing alone at the alter,
