“METAMORPHOSIS!” a poem. Odin’s DAY – 06/20/2018
“IF YOU REALLY LOVE ME, YOU’LL DO EVERYTHING I SAY;
IF YOU REALLY LOVE ME, YOU’LL NEVER FLY AWAY!”
And, with that, The Bird did fly, fluttered from my palm,
And soared up, ever skyward, flew so true and calm!
It flew away and-never-came – never came again,
And, ever since, yes, ever since, so sorrowful I’ve been!
I wanted that bird! (pause) I wanted it today!
I wanted it to come back here, with some eggs to lay,
But it-never-came, and my tears, MY TEARS WILL EVER FALL,
Upon the dark and warmish pavement – here inside The Mall!
One day, as usual, I was-readying to complain,
That “My life, without my bird – It is a dreadful bane!”
And, as I wrote, with chalk and tear,
A cockroach came and stated clear:
“Do-you-need-a-friend? Well, I’m alone!
I can not fly; and I gnaw the bone!
I am rejected – by all men; my presence cursed-again, again,
But – I’m-not-so-bad, that I couldn’t pretend,
To be your bird – YOUR HEART TO MEND!”
So, I adopted a big, ol’ cock (roach),
Who like to scurry – around – and walk,
We walk hand-in-hand and sing and dance,
He’s a big cock(roach), so there’s romance,
And, you-know- I’ve-almost-forgotten-about-THAT-bird,
Who liked to poop and fly unheard,
I think I’ll keep my precious roach;
He’s a-kind – and-faithful – kind of coach! 🙂
MORAL OF THE STORY: “So IF ever IF you lose Your TWEET, and you can’t TWITTER, so you’re sad // You might find a-big-ol’-hairy-cock(roach) – to-be the best friend you ever had”!” The Mystic Poet.
