A Poem Inspired by Another Hub I Read Recently

Before I begin, I need to address.

How exactly, we got into this mess.

Don't send me hate mail, I have no address.

Forget it I'm hungry, I'm going to mess.

I look in the mirror, and I see my face.

Its at least good enough, to get me to first base.

I have a few demons, that I have to face.

I can sing tenor, but I can't sing bass.

When I feel tired, I find somewhere to lean.

I lean on something, you know what I mean.

I'm like the old saying, and I really am lean.

Well at least half, cause I'm not really mean.

I fill up my planter, to the top with soil.

I wrap it up tight, with aluminum foil.

I do the laundry, because now it is soiled.

That did work out, my plan has been foiled.

I tie a slip knot, in a piece of string.

Put it on my finger, and make it a ring.

I hope that you follow, me as I string.

Each of you all, around in a ring.

My concentration, I hope I don't break.

Sometimes I know, I can be a flake.

I drop my planter, and I watch it break.

One of the pieces, looks like a corn flake.

I could go on all day, but then I might cry.

It might actually bring, a tear to my eye.

So I hope that you hear, these words that I cry.

I'm ending this now, simply with I.

I read another poem just earlier that inspired this silly rhyme.

If you sit for a moment and think about it there are hundreds of words that have multiple meanings depending upon how they are used in a sentence. Here are a few more that just didn't seem to work out in my poem. Camp, staple, fence, spring, shop, swing, tire, flood, and mark are just a few of the many. I could go on but that may bore you to tears, so I will end there. If you are reading this, thank you so very much, If you like this or if you hate it please leave a comment It would be greatly appreciated. I hope you have a lovely day and God bless.

      christin53, there are to many homonyms to mention, it seems that most words in the English language are. Glad you learned something new, have an awesome day.

      dmop, Very enjoyable poem. Here's to hoping that you indulge in this fun creativity again.

      Thank you for including the YouTube of "Pun-Sured Lungs"; performance poetry is interesting; I especially liked his lines that "It has been said in time that truth hurts, So many pass out before my first verse is completed."

      Well done.
