Peculiar Poetry

Poetry with and without reason and rhyme.
Strange is what I strive for.
Expect lyrics and limericks, free verse and format.
Be prepared for bubbly and boiled, terrifying and horrifying.
Keep an eye out for those that provoke your thoughts, and some that bear no thought at all.
Many written for class, and others without much of it.
Feel free. There are no boundaries. Just think.
Consider, Ponder, Wonder, Imagine.
Argue, Oppose, Debate, Defend.
Perhaps you will be offended.
That's good.
Think about that.
Learn more of what you think.
How you think.
Take what you can from what you hate.
I don't seek to preach.
I only speak my mind.
A mind most peculiar.

17. "The Woman Who Was There" (Couplet)

Inspired by "Antigonish" (aka "The Little Man Who Wasn't There") written by William Hughes Mearns

(This is basically the same structure as the original, and because of that I seriously encourage you to read "Anigonish" before you read my spoof of it. Mr. Mearns deserves all the creative credit. Also, my poem will make more sense. ;P) 

 

 

As I turned toward the stair 

I saw a woman standing there! 

And she was there again today,

Oh how I wish she'd go away! 

 

She climbed the steps last night at three, 

And stood in place to gawk at me 

But then she sprinted down the hall, 

I just can't stand it—not at all!

Go away, go away, don't you come back anymore! 

Go away, go away, and please don't slam the door... 

 

Last night, I was upon the stair, 

And unlike me, she was there,

And she was there again today 

Tonight, I'll make her go away...
