Mister Master Laugh-a-Lot


A silly old man (or so I think of him) ,
So full of humor and laughter.
His words are so bright and effervescent,
Like sunshine on a gloomy day.

Whether I'm asking about his personal life,
Or just questions in general,
Without giving a second thought,
Gives me his truthful thought.

I assumed that adults were all sober;
But not this bowl of jolliness.
Despite the fact that he teases me,
I can't help but laugh in the midst of dismay.

'Master', as I tease him,
May or may not be altogether true,
But even in his most humorous messages,
I at least, or so I think,
Learn something.

May sunshine follow you and your family always!

Poet's Notes about The Poem

This may be the most childish poem I have written yet, but nevertheless, it was fun writing. I might not have known 'Mister Master' for as long an many here, but it is always fun communicating with him.

    this guy, mister master etc. must be a hell of a guy. wish i could be like him! ! ! !

    a childish poem? is that supposed to be BAD? and since when shouldn't a child write a childish poem? ? thanks for the poet note, young lady. as for the poem: it may not be the most polished poem i've ever read [well, how could it be? ! it is not one of MINE! ], but i found it to be sincere-sounding, and that is a nice change from some of what i run across in life.

    thought/thought?

    Without giving a second thought,
    Gives me his truthful thought. [how about SPEWS OUT WHAT HIS NEURONS HAVE WROUGHT? j

Poem of the Day

poet Emily Dickinson

"Arcturus" is his other name—
I'd rather call him "Star."
It's very mean of Science
To go and interfere!

I slew a worm the other day—
