This a throwback from 2005. This poem is silly and complete and utter nonsense… and I LOVE IT! This was one of the first experimental poems that I tried. The title was randomly given to me, and I was supposed to come up with a poem. Some of the poems I have written recently are based off of titles similar in nature to this one. The idea was to overcome my writer’s block. Boy, oh boy, did it work! Thank you Robin, that 10 years ago (WOW!!) you started this tradition. The legacy lives on! :o)
In the land of the wild and free
The animals live in harmony
Going about their day peacefully
Safe from the horrible Gerlumperly.
Then one day the birds fly away
The animals all stop their play
This fear they feel deep inside
Causes the bravest to run and hide.
This monster that swings from the trees
Destroys everything that he sees.
Now the land is as bare as a bone
And Gerlumperly’s left all alone.
So he sits on a branch and he cries
For no matter how hard that he tries
He’ll be lonely until the end
Because he scares away all of his friends.
