Honey Melon


I drink round at the lid
As September peeks a weary eye
At my indecency barely hid
You buy my tie

I guess it makes me look so formal
If the hedgehog hatched his shadow
A business tie wouldn't hurt
Until I met my maker

He's a solemn maker
With honey melon eyes
From all the chaos
That churns to a satisfactory pulse

    Sounds like a life tainted by alcoholism; I detect sorrow and detachment from living. Intriguing composition, though I feel awfully saddened by it. (Report) Reply

    From the fig leaf to a tie to hide our indecency,
    we are born naked to the world and our spirit will
    return naked to our maker. Not sure if this was
    your meaning but I liked the last two lines.
    Thought provoking poem. Good write. (Report) Reply

poet Sir Walter Raleigh

EVEN such is Time, that takes in trust
Our youth, our joys, our all we have,
And pays us but with earth and dust;
