The Dynamite Poem!
I want to write a dynamite poem,
one that'll blow their brains out,
one that'll leave them open-mouthed,
not breathing in, not breathing out,
just suspended in time, utterly phased...
Yeah, I want to write a dynamite poem,
one that'll send ripples across the world,
one that'll be read by the next generation,
compelling them to sit up and take notice,
like they were forcibly positioned that way.
Just one little, brand new, dynamite poem,
one that'll make all poets green with envy,
one that'll make them want to write better,
something really, ever so powerful... yeah...
Something that'll be read out loud in Heaven,
God listening intently, angels' wings slumped,
with heads nodding in vigorous agreement,
with halleluyahs and hosannas following...
Lord! Just one dynamite poem, that'll do me...
yeah, I'm not greedy, that'll do me just fine...
