Dear bodacious people

Whether friend or foe

  There are highs and lows

In this perplexing world

Plastic selfies in a twirl

Hey, showing true grit

 Could help our morrows

Even shelve our sorrows

Ridiculous for ridiculous sake

What’s it gonna take

 Tweedle dee and tweedle dum

Nothing’s good about ho-hum

    Between your references to Batman and Robin, along with references to Alice in Wonderland, I am digging this post!

    Hey Eugenia, Namaste 🙂

    How are you? Your pen flows in remarkable ways weaving me into your ditty. It feels a pleasant fit: the seamstress that you are 🙂

    A quick question: what happened to Friendship 1 to 6?

    At the reading the Poetess was bodacious – audacious in a way I considered admirable. She revealed herself in a fifteen line sonnet. The crowd gasped at such a thing! lol 🙂

    Hoping all is well – have a wonderful afternoon.

    Namaste 🙂

      Dewin, I am always delighted by your comments. It makes the writing of whacky poetry worthwhile. Friendship 7 was named by the astronaut, John Glenn, as it was common practice the astronauts named their personal capsules. The 7 represents his fellow Mercury members.

        Whilst I am always delighted to be here Eugenia, thank you: and here not just for the pleasant company, the whacky poetry, or the headlining knowledge, but also for the splash of Bourbon you throw into my coffee cup on every visit 🙂

        Regards the naming of the capsule: I find that fascinating and had no idea NASA might operate like this. It makes perfect sense and inspires all to be so unified in friendship in much the same: after-all we all live on the one spaceship hurtling through space called Earth heading for a destination unknown…a future we’ll all get to a little quicker being friends with one another 🙂

        Enjoy your afternoon and evening. Thank you for coffee and a splash: but now I really ought to dash 🙂

        Ciao Eugenia. Namaste 🙂

      Yes, I found this to be very interesting. I’ve not heard much about Estonia.

        Neither had I until I edited a book and some plays by a famous author/musician/producer who is from that country,

    Enjoyed your take on the prompt Eugenia and how you wove it into the quote. “I will try again tomorrow” are wonderful words.

    When John Glenn orbited the earth, I was 14 months old. Definitely, too little to remember the historical event. I remember Ross Perot running for president. Did you know he passed away on the 20th of this month? I always liked watching the Sonny & Cher TV program as a kid. It made me sad when they split. They weren’t necessarily a brilliant mewsical duo but I liked them anyhow. Thanks for hosting the fun and I’m sorry for the late visit. It’s just been one a hectic week. Oh, yeah, great poem!

      Wow! I didn’t know about Ross Perot – how sad. I liked Sonny and Cher too and agree with you about their music as a duo. But they were entertaining and fun to watch. Thank for the visit.
