“A ROMANTIC TURN!” a poem November 22,2018 – Thursday = Thanksgiving!
“God” has tricked us – REALLY GOOD!
You sexy thang! – my scrumptious “pud!”
YOU MAKE-A ALL MY DREAMS COME TRUE;
I JUST-A HAVE-TO CLING-‘ROUND-YOU!!
‘Cause-you-feel-so-good, so comfy – and nice,
GOD HAS TRICKED US! – ‘cause-we’re “FILLED WITH LICE!”
I need your “sug!”* I need your spice!
And NOW – I’m sure (pause) ta-get-your advice!
We-got-‘nough-GERMS! to sink Missouri!
Despite all that! I’M IN A HURRY,
To make you mine – to take you home,
To dress you DOWN – and – “apply-the-comb!”
And spruce and groom you EVERY DAY,
GOD HAS TRICKED US! to work away,
Lady, I (pause) a-NEED YOU NOW,
“It’ll ALL WORK OUT,” says GOD – “Some how!!!”
We’ll spend-ALL-OUR-TIME, kissing and hugging,
Doing-UNSPEAKABLE-ACTS – we’ll-call-it-“fugging!”
I AM undone – I have no brain,
When GOD has-tricked-us – to go insane!
I MUST encircle-you – your shoulders STRONG,
Your body THICK – I AM – King Kong,
A fiery BEAST! – IN LUST with YOU,
GOD HAS TRICKED US! IT’S NOTHING NEW!
This same old trick – HAS WORKED FOR AGES!
LOVE AND ROMANCE – TURN THE PAGES!
Invading-angels’-privacy? – I-think-you/we-are-all-wet!
You’re filled with A POWER-TRIP – which-rivals Peter, The-Great!
But, REMEMBER: despots! They (eventually) suffer-the-same-fate:
And WHAT’S THAT FATE? (You-might-ask!) You might-ask of me!
Well, CORRUPTION! (pause) for,
“Absolute-power! (pause) doth-corrupt-eventu-al-ly!”
Sure! “You-gotta-have-LAWS!” thus saith The Lord,
A zillion commandments? Are we all on board?
But THE LAW OF LOVE, THE LAW OF ONE, MUST-BE-FOUND-IN-YOUR- HEART, MY WAYWARD SON!**
“GOD!”-(L. O. L.) has-placed – These PROGRAMS IN OUR HEADs,
To do STRANGE THINGS (pause) in our beds!
AND – in The Heads of CODERS, who slave for-FACEBOOK!
Becoming-ZOMBIES! Who’ll BLEEP-and-won’t (take-a) look,
‘Cause ALGORITHMS-ARE-UPON-US, (pause)
Like a hurricane which hits the shore;
We’ll-keep-trying-to LEGISLATE MORALITY –
And we’ll fail –
- pronounced SHUG!
** – or daughter!!
