Poetry Fridays

August 17, 2007

I am almost certain that many of you have been eagerly hitting the refresh button on your web browsers frantically hoping that I had posted my new poem. Here’s the twin to last week’s stirring poem that brought a standing ovation and tear to many a reader’s eye.

The Widower
There once was a man from Sodom
A town that had hit rock-bottom
His wife turned into a pillar
A real relationship killer
But if your herd needs a salt lick he’s got ’em

[Brian, don’t feel too bad, or jealous… It’s just a gift.]

    The salt that I tasted was in the tears that I shed over this verse.

    Yes PoD I do believe there were tears. I imagine you as Salieri sitting at your computer awed, and yet resentful towards the gift that was given to someone else.

    Like Wolfgang I too am only an unworthy conduit.

    Please don’t cry.
