Rhyme of the Day

Various meanderings with a rhyme in there somewhere.

Postprandial
john_j_enright
I’m going to write a ballad
About gorging on egg salad
And chewing till it hurts
On peeps for just desserts.

Redact Me!
john_j_enright
I'm spending tomorrow in hiding
So I don't have to hear about this report,
And so I can put off deciding
Which new interpretation to support.

Avian Sounds
john_j_enright
A woodpecker’s rat-a-tat-tat,
A dove’s insistent cooing -
My busy feathered friends
Inform me what they’re doing.

I wonder, while I listen,
To chatty sparrows chirping,
Why I never hear
Any birdies burping?

Notre Dame
john_j_enright
We think we have tamed it, but fire remains
A dangerous friend, with death in her veins.

Frozapril
john_j_enright
It’s charming to see the day bring
The last snow of spring.




Right Day Wrong Number
john_j_enright


When Friday the thirteenth falls on the twelfth,
Jason doesn’t know what to do with himselfth.

Speaking of Across the Pond
john_j_enright


I don't have details yet about which day it will be playing, but Kitties In Space, in its ten-minute incarnation, will be part of this science fiction theatre festival in London, England.

It's hard to imagine... Socks and Mittens with British accents. But, why not?

Kitty cat, kitty cat, where have you been?
I've been to London to visit the Queen.
Kitty cat, kitty cat, why did you go?
I wanted to be in a fun sci-fi show!

On The Bare Branch
john_j_enright


Are wasps asleep inside all winter long?
If I climb up to visit, is it wrong?

Understatement
john_j_enright
Tell me, are people still fond
Of saying “across the pond”
When referring to the Atlantic?
That pond is pretty gigantic.

Headturning
john_j_enright
Saw an orange Lamborghini
Driving along
On a plain old city street.
It just seemed wrong.

Something that exotic
Ought to be banned
From every mundane spot
Across the land.
