Come toto

Tin man is stuck in the sun with no sunoco,

4 loco no joke, oh,

hot coco,

and a story slow,

about oil,


Well let's walk the yellow brick road off into oz watching a wizards show, slow boiled,

in a pot, my shorts... Earlier were soiled,

from a previous rhyme in time as I sat in shame and toiled,

a ghost at most, costume foiled,

the wicked witch had tricks, pretty slick...but water worked quick... Burnt that bitch right off the stick, smooth booze bounce I've pounced and now lion has you coiled,

up in heartless acts is the fact, straw you,man cracks, gas can smiled,

fueling the force navigating this course... But of course the movie gave away the happy ending... Spoiled,


dreaming source,

from a code sent in Morse,

~3 short 3 long 3 short~

goego, I appreciate the embedded links, all three poems together form a wave of overwhelming gloom. A nod to the ignorant and greedy as they are swept under. Frightening poems revealing the shame, dishonour and degradation that comes from not paying attention to the things that matter. Painful glimpse of a dreaded dystopian nightmare. In view of recent world events it could be just another day in the life. Ouch! Regards, snakeslane

Hi goego.

You've given us today a poem that must be read a couple of times or more before an understanding is there.

Judy Garland (sigh) memories of a wonderful era.

TOTO was the wonderful finishing touch to this hub.

Take care my friend.

goego, after another read I agree with Ghaelach, Come toto takes on a whole new light. I think the links tripped me. Now seems kind of funny, and wistful, almost hopeful. Good move embedding a full length movie. You should get some Hub love for duration! Clever write, love the sing song voice, voted up.

@ G, this in a way sums up my addictions, My addiction to alcohol, my addiction to fast cars and women, but most importantly my addiction to oil...

@ oft, it's our world,

@ Sss, This is sure to blow your mind...
