dang...great rhythm, somewhat disturbing subject....the dullards make the rules, thought you might be going political there....ha....careful keeping company with fools as well...smiles.
Step Fetch - ah such an image! Excellent imagery and a mysterious dark futility pervade this. A fun read aloud.
Feast of Fools indeed - and no one can get uninvited. Grand poem for April first.
This made me smile, MZ. Feast of Fools indeed.
Dark...I love it. I sometimes get too sugary and end up with a poetic tummy ache when speaking of spring.
Feast of Fools ~ Love this take from start to finish ~
What, you don't believe in bipartisan buffoonery? :-P
Fascinating imagery here, MZ.K
No kidding--been saying for years we have a one party system that comes in two flavors. The refrain is perfect, and so is 'step fetch'
This so musical, and the rhyme seems effortless and totally unforced, which is the sign of a great deal of effort--which has paid off, thank you very much.
Have you been watching c-span?
step fetch... I do too. some times it rewards. others, not so much!
Feast of Fools. Has to be the DC Beltway crowd, seeing as the elephants and mules are getting fed. At first, I thought THEY were on the menu!! Then my activist self woke up. And then I was hoping they WERE on the menu... oy.Great, sly, wicked. Loved it, Mama. Peace, Amy
getting political I see :-) enjoyed it
"step fetch" was an expression I had to look up -- coming from slavery days meaning subservient. The phrase: "cockcrow light to nightingale"Was fascinating.And now I'm off to be a fool in my day, and to be paid in coffin nails. (Nice!)
I love this! A lot of times I don't like old expressions in poems, but you've really used them well.
