Day One #NaPoWriMo2019 Poem Two

By Alex McGehee

 

Tweet, tweet. Is it an April fools joke,

A whole global month dedicated to poetry?

Fool me freely if it be so,

I would rather be a fool writing poetry

Than any thing less foolish that excluded poetry.

How to?

Write a poem a day,

Bring a friend,

Or a stranger on the street,

The information highway of the internet.

A poem each day, and what is a poem,

But words which you feel

Are beautiful

Beautiful words.

Day One #NaPoWriMo2019 Poem One

By Alex McGehee

 

Wow! This is a lot of garbage! So many left overs!

 

I’m like a giant project bear-osaurous-ragon

that leaves heaps of flesh and bones

as it tears through its kidnapped plunder persons,

feasting as it wishes by its whims,

with no thought to waste,

or scarcity of resource.

I am a horder,

a monster,

a project whore

of waste and squalor.

Prolific,

In excess.
