TO GRANDMA

Sooner or later
every poet
writes a poem
about his grandmother.

Not me.

I never
wrote a poem
about my grandmother.

 
 
 
 
 
14,OOO,OO2,007

 
The way I figure it,
from what I read in
my astronomy books,

The year is 14,000,002,007.

They just shorten it
to make it easier
to sign your checks.





Excessive Expressive

 
I was going to write a one line poem
But now I’ve gone too far.



POST MODERN VIEW
OF THE HOLIEST OF HOLIES
or The Bare Truth



Pantheism
Is the ancient idea
that the universe
is part of God
and therefore
God can be found
in all creation.

Whereas
Pantyism,
I gather,
is the belief
that the Devine
can only be found
in a woman's unmentionables .
 
 
Editor's Note:   This concept was recently found scrawled in a frat boy’s Philosophy 101 notebook, along with a primitive sketch of the “sacred vestments”



The Empirical Express

The train
of thought chugs
slowly into the station.

The station is deserted.
Everyone has a car,
today

THE LONG AND THE SHORT OF IT


An irresistible force
meets an unmovable object.

No pleasantries are exchanged.



ANTI-DARWINISM

Survival
of the Nitwittiest.

 

  

RELATIVE RIGHT

Two wrongs
don't make a right,
but three lefts do.



LITERARY CRITICISM #l

Every buddy's a critic today
And that includes
My four year old son Mike.

When giving him
A most detailed explanation
To a most simple question
He listens,
Thinks it over,
And then replies:

"Is that for real, Peter, or is that just one
of your crazy poems?"
