Boy, oh Boy

(Poem Smudged in Muddy Fingerprints & Bright Green Crayon)

I tugged.
I shrugged.
I ate a bug.

I toad the line.
I clawed
and climbed.

I peed.
I fleed.
I need

a lawyer.

  5. Oh De..
    this reminds me
    today of ‘Tom Sawyer’..
    if my mother is Internet
    savvy i will be deleted too..
    from the older folks home..;)

    “Though his mind is not for rent
    Don’t put him down as arrogant
    His reserve, a quiet defense
    Riding out the day’s events
    The river

    What you say about his company
    Is what you say about society
    Catch the mist, catch the myth
    Catch the mystery, catch the drift

    Exit the warrior
    Today’s Tom Sawyer
    He gets high on you
    And the energy you trade
    He gets right on to
    the friction
    of the day”

    And yeah..
    words of
    profits are prophets
    written on Concert
    Hall Walls in selected
    Lyrics by
    no distance
    time or space..
    in Rush eYes
    of Big Boy Blue..
    Yes and ELO too..

    It’s not easy BEinG
    Tom Sawyer PoetRY

    A fun piece that rocks the prompt. I have heard of “tow the line”, do your share, shoulder to the wheel, but never heard of “toad the line”–is the boy lassoing bull frogs? Smile.

  7. X says:

    Ha. I hate to say it, but I dont think that a lawyer
    could even save you from mama. Not if she is like
    my mama. Fun piece.
