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.

      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.
