Cartoon Caricature


Played out like a caricature
Dancing a duet of two steps
Wondrous fleeting of footing
Designing play doh concepts

Yet happy toes tap, parading
Stiff heal of proper posture
Atop the world over
Held of high grand stature

A gem of secrets hidden
Like a jewel in the rough
Delicate of the eye, it shines
Of strength, it proves, so tough

Masculine of muscle form
Drawn too, with utter weakness
Staggering on feline feet
Into arms open fortress

Interlaced with finger embrace
Cradled in a cartoon dance
Bated breath of passions bud
Birthing that, of silly romance

Not unlike, child of love
Preoccupied, pleased of play
Thine heart of earth's purest mud
To hand mold, as moistened clay

Squeeze not, this delicate matter
Handle please, with utmost care
Forming just like plastercine
Us, a cartoon caricature pair

Poem of the Day

poet John Clare

I love to see the old heath's withered brake
Mingle its crimpled leaves with furze and ling,
While the old heron from the lonely lake
Starts slow and flaps its melancholy wing,
