April is poetry month


O Gnarly tree
O Gnarly tree
I feel just like
You look to me.

You flinch beside one
Straight and true
I wonder what hap-
pened to you.

The same amount
of soil and sun
Why are you the
Unlucky one?

O Gnarly tree
O Gnarly tree
It all seems so
unfair to me.

Great pic, and a nice ditty
to start off my day. I don't know
where I've been, but I didn't
realize April was Poetry Month.

O Gnarly Tree,
I feel as thee,
from the pain in my knee
to my lack of espre'
while lacking the key
to do a damned thing about it.

Hey thanks, you stimulated me
to write something, and God
knows it takes a lot to stimulate me.

It is grand that darling Douglas
is writing more poetry. He has a
poet's soul that has to share room
with a rogue composer, and engineer,
a playwright, a mechanical, and
a musician.

I get a lot of my material from reading this blog. Palmer is a scream and a curmudgeon of the first order.

Doug was a fan of mine years before
anyone else figured out that comedy
and drama are two sides of the same
hand. He encouraged me to continue
writing seriously as well as satire.

Years ago Doug was the only one
who sent me handmade cards on
Christmas. The first couple of times
it was unique and creative. Then I
figured out he's just a cheapskate.

He can stay in one of my rooms
any time he's on a road trip. Did
I tell you that I created RAMADA INNS?

How many goddamn times do you have to tell us that, Georgie?

I am very fond of his drawing of
two ravens. He posts it on a regular
basis, whenever he is in a dark mood.

He came to one of my concerts
at the Seattle Center back in the
day. He offered me his autograph.
I thought he was just another
wingnut, or someone who had
seen two many Marx Brothers movies.

He came to one of my concerts too
back in the day, and then took me
out and bought me some beers;
told me that I was talented and that
I should hang in there; had me
sign my album cover for SIDE
BURNS.
