A Lesson in Charades


How could I have been so blind
The obvious showed in the obvious places
yet I chose to sit back
enjoy the show and ignore the signs
stay blind like a good little pet on a leash
All the answers to the endless questions
that never sub-sided
Every rumor I tried to uncover proved true
Almost a year to the date
It's been one long game of charades
and now I see I'm a loser for a reason
Russell the loser, nice to meet you
or pleasure to tease you
I guess I'll just try to pass the time
at least make a rhyme
instead of feeling like
chalk lines on the concrete, easy to erase
Memories I kept so close, feel like lies
and I, so easy to replace
guess the cycle has to repeat
Why can't I break the cycle
it's like the future of me
will end and cease
once fate seizes the enemy called me
or is just a stroke of luck
from my guardian angel
trying to do me a favor...

Poem of the Day

poet James Whitcomb Riley

When the frost is on the punkin and the fodder's in the shock
And you hear the kyouck and gobble of the struttin' turkey cock
And the clackin' of the guineys, and the cluckin' of the hens
