“The Blessing(s) of The SWALLOWS!” * a poem a.k.a.: “Don’t Swallow!” July 6, 2019 (Saturday)
A swallow* build its beautiful nest here one day!
At-the-door, and, of-course, I-shouted: “Hooray!”
‘Cause we-all love nature-it’s-na-a-tur-AL! / Nature is beautiful! She-is my pal!
& then came a mate; we said “This is great! / Nature, we love it, we can not wait!
For babies & feeding & fa-a-mi-lees!” We-all started praying & fell to our knees!
AND THANKED GOD – for nature! and families! and birds!
AND, THEN – THERE-WAS-A-FAMILY! And-we-have-no[t]-[the]-words!
To describe the in-ces-sant and-caco-phonous noise!
That we-had-to-put-up-with! And, lemme-tell-ya-boys:
The poo started to accumulate! under the nest!
And mum started gettin’ migraines – Dad-said: “Is-this-the-best,
IDEA? to-have all this noise and smelly, white poo!?”
And sister and brother – They-didn’t-know-what-to-do!
And THE NEIGHBORS COMPLAINED! and-The-Police came to us!
“We’re having complaints! There is bird poo and fuss!”
“BUT, NATURE,” I said; “It’s a beautiful thing!”
Un-to my ankle – AND TOOK ME AWAY!
And my family shouted for JOY – and-they-burned-the-nest-that-day!
I-didn’t-do-well-IN PRISON, after-being-butt-fucked-by-Buddha!
He’s MY BIG, BIG, BLACK FRIEND – and-He-just-LOVES-to-rub-a
Up-a-against – by backside – and he’ll often say:
“THIS HERE’S-A-NATURAL-PROCESS, My Good Buddy J!”
“Then, why-does-it-hurt? Why does it sting?”
“Don’t argue, my lover!” “But, Buddha! THAT-THING!
It-irritates-my-rectum – and I can’t poo no more,
Without screaming in agony! I think you done tore!
My sphincter! so-that I’m-in-constant-dis-tress!”
“Shut-up! Lean-forward! While-I-pull up MY DRESS!
And-lemme-[re]-introduce-you – to-this-natural-being;
I found me a swallow! * and – IT MAY BE OBSCENE!
But-let’s-just-try sticking it-up-your-ass!” &-yes, My Friends! this-2-came-to-pass:
That I ended-up with a swallow, * who was introduced to a mate!
And they lived in my rectum – I GUESS IT WAS MY FATE!
That “up-there” they-would-have a-little fam-(i)-lee!
And they pooed! and they chirped! It-was THE-END-OF-ME!
So, I died! of-“NATURAL-CAUSES,” after-crying for-DAYS!
I-THINK-I’ve-a-different-attitude-now, about-NATURE AND-ITS-WAYS!
So, I DIED!-&-went-to-Heaven and-found-out: “GOD’S A SWALLOW!” *
“Sort-of-figures,” I-thought! And, for-my-rectum, I use – aloe! **
- – footnote: This poem was originally written about sparrows! – AND – I cleaned up the poop with a white wheel BARROW!😂😃😁
** – Aloe vera ointment can treat various skin conditions! It’s NATURAL!
