This Silly Old Flame (A Short Doggerel To Tickle)
This is the closing sequel of my earlier doggerel called “My Dearest Little Flickering Light", the link of which is at the end of this poem. Now let this irritating flickering light be extinguished for good. So I shall call this very short doggerel, “This Silly Old Flame”.
“Doggerel” is a noun symbolizing comic verses that are irregular in rhythm and in rhyme. Another simple meaning is “trivial or bad poetry”. And bad poetry this is, for I am no poet. It started with my first doggerel with good intention to tickle and reminiscent the past going back half a century. But the surprise respond was a sudden blackout, a very loud silence, emanated throughout the whole universe! As if someone was struck by lightning! Dead? Hope not, heaven forbids. Let peace be with you. End of story.
Now this is the silly old flame.
This Silly Old Flame
This silly old flame a lot to blame
Nothing positive but a pain and bane
It’s time you expire to rid of desire
No more foolish nonsense and despair
With one big huff and puff, blow the silly old flame out
No more disturbance no more running about
No one asking you to be here
Let this message be clear
Pray this flame never to reappear
That will be happier
That would be what I wished
Never to disturb my peace
Let me live at ease
Never to disturb my life
Let sleeping dogs lie
To be too sensitive is asking for trouble
For all your problems will be doubled
Free your mind of misery
Then your life will not be a mystery
Start from a clean slate
A life that is easier to relate
Forget about the silly old flame
It’s just a silly old game
After all it had all the time a unilateral affair
Just like the little child chasing his teddy bear
Complete silence may seem right
But not polite
Half a century’s tale is history
What a pity
Closing a chapter of silly dreams and foolish chatterings
No more hopeful wanderings
With a big huff and puff, let this silly old flame be extinguished
Let this doggerel be completely finished
Peace be with you in good time
If you still don’t understand, never mind.
Hope you have a wonderful life
Here's to you, good-bye
This silly old flame, completely extinguished
End of story, finished!
