Poems

Problem Of Comparison

1.
I had this stone in my kidney:
Even when stoned
None said ‘Look at Benny
I wish to God I had
A stone as large as his.
2.
My house sits on a goldmine
And my lawn is
fine; but still shame is mine,
See what the neighbor has:
The greenest you ever saw.

A Chameleon’s Epitaph

Here lies one
Who changed
colors
Once too often;
It was red needed:
He turned green
Instead.
The lawn mower rode on.
ii
Rest we commend for this chameleon
Quick-change artist; steadfast in bout
No slander did his tongue ever darken;
But a legion of flies did: a bitter rout
With such tongue was foregone conclusion.

For Better Or Verse

Yestuhday someone harried me so!
Oh boy,
I let the fellow have it
Between the ears,
A poem for him
spoken with malice
And much venom.
Oh boy,

Foul, filthy cussed words-
E’ery cursed word
In right place,
Oh boy,
And they sang true.
Now I could do much worse
And write it down for you.
Benny
