“THE BLOB 2!” a poem. a.k.a.: “How I Fell In Love With The Blob AND We Lived Happily Ever After!” Sunday: November 18, 2018
THE BLOB showed up HERE! My-bathroom!! IT-was-really-messed!
“Well, YEA! I-sorry-’bout-that, BUT-I-always-try-my-best!
Would you just PLEASE consider – LOVING ME TODAY?
No-one ever loves me! I’m-such-a-SLIMY-GROSS-ARRAY,
Of-This-&-That-of-Love-&-Hate (pause) &-Fear, with-confident-STRAIN,
I’m-pretty-sure – amidst-ALL-THIS-OOZING, I’ve got a healthy brain!”
And SO – I loved my Blob-by friend; I loved her on and on,
And-hoped that she would not consume – her-admiring bon vivant!
And, as we-grew more com-for’able (pause) I noticed subtle change,
She DID transform, before me eyes – from gelatin-to- some-mange,
And, eventually, She DID wear some clothes, to cover private parts,
And, also, eventually – She DID-NOT – always – smell of farts!!
And! The-atmosphere – in our GOOD HOME,
Was more pristine!! And! She-did-NOT-roam,
As much at night – to eat The Neighbors,
She stayed more HERE, with-TV – and-household labors!
AND THEN ONE DAY, NOT-SO LONG-AGO,
She lost her filthy, stained, gelatinous glow!!
I guess! The intensely-radiated curse up-on,
HER! Was-neutralized-by-LOVE – from this – per-son,
For, perhaps, my LOVE – had quenched Her fear,
Of never-ever-finding – no-love – ‘round here!! 🙂 -Kisses!
AND-SHE’s-ALWAYS-BEEN – Yes! – so-bloody-pretty TO ME,
That, FOREVER-NOW – we’ll be-so – darn – hap-py!!
