Poem of the Day!


LAMENT, FOR COCOA

The scum has come.
My cocoa's cold.
The cup is numb,
And I grow old.

It seems an age
Since from the pot
It bubbled, beige
And boiling hot.

To hot to be
Too quickly quaffed
Accordingly,
I found a draft

And in it placed
The boiling brew
And took a taste
Of toast or two.

Alas, time flies,
As oft time will
My cocoa lies
Dull brown and still

How wearisome!
In likelihood
The scum, once come,
is come for good.

Bravo.
Well done. I'm partial to Haiku, but this works for me.

So what else is in the cocoa?

There once was a man from Nantucket
Whose **** was so long he could **** it
And he said with a grin
As he wiped of his chin,
If my ear was a **** I would **** it.


Now that is poetry inspired by the Muse herself!

Here's another that may be appropriate for many of our internet posts:


The Moving Finger writes; and, having writ,
Moves on: nor all your Piety nor Wit
Shall lure it back to cancel half a Line,
Nor all your Tears wash out a Word of it
