Hot Fresh And Toasted

I walked into the Subway,
Meatball Marinara, he blocked the door.
BMT, he snarled at me,
“Man, what you come here for?”

I growled, “It ain’t your business, Dude.
Now get out of my way.”
The Chicken and Bacon Ranch
was on my mind that day.
Get toasted!

Kneel for the New Year

Sing to me sweet New Year, show your sultry ways.
I chime away your minutes, while you chime away my days.

The Seagull’s Gone

Here I sit-- the same ol’ place--
but the seagull, he’s long gone.
Sometimes it seems things never change
but the seagull, he’s done flown,
flown away, no more to wait
Please fly with the seagull

Poetry Club Widget

For starters: I don't expect anyone to add the Blogsboro Poetry Club Widget to their websiite or blog. Most of our blogs are already far too cluttered. But, if you want to do so... Well the link will put you on the path.

More importantly, the Blogsboro Poetry Club Widget is yet another tool to help all the members of the club connect with more readers no matter what style or genre in which you pen your verse. You can even change the appearance of the widget so that it blends in or stands out with any page you place it on.

Besides your own blog or website there are lots of other places you can stick your widget. The widget can be added to your iGoogle homepage, Facebook, MySpace, Blogger, TypePad, WordPress, LiveJournal, Tagged and even sent to a friend. The Blogsboro Poetry Club Widget can be added to FreeWebs, NetVibes, PageFlakes, Hi5, Piczo, Orkut and Ning. Because it comes in both .html and Flash coding the Blogsboro Poetry Club Widget can be used almost anywhere on the web.

And the farther the widget goes the more your audience grows.

Now scroll on down the front page to find great poetry.

Winter Magic

Snow drifts all through the late night storm thin ice coats form, from cold rains’ freeze that wraps the trees. A world of white will soon emerge Winter Magic continued...

You'd stand there arms crossed
in front, gathering your waist
with floured hands, a pause
from oven to table, your silhouette
perfectly framed in stained glass,..

The Great Gravy Boat

Roman sailed the gravy seas
in his magic gravy boat.
No matter how the storm winds tossed
his boat would stay afloat.
Around the world and back again,
Roman chose to risk it

Piano Man

Pencil fingers stretch across a keyboard ocean
to tickle obstinate rough edges
of this earthly spinning globe
while his melodies all chip-chopped
with words gasp for breath
in a moody cigarette fog


Every Now and Then

I walked down by the river and I wandered off the path and I took my empty Coke can and I tossed it in the grass Yeah, I know I shouldn’t do that ‘cause littering’s a sin but I only do that sort of thing just every now and then. It’s really not so bad to only do it now and then. More..

Dear Angus, Where Are You Tonight?

A Thickburger came to visit.
A Fish Supreme came too.
They turned me on to Angus,
there’s nothing she’d not do.

“Too thick, too thick!” the Whoppers say,
“Call Arby, we’re coming to kick beef today.”

Curly Fry, she called her trashy,
said, “Angus, she’s a cow.”
But the wondrous things dear Angus did--
can’t talk about them now.

And Hardee played his guitar,
Ode To An Apple Pie,
while Thickburger and Fish Supreme
set ‘round getting high.
