The Deer in the Snow, and other Poemish Words

Do the Right Thing?

Have you ever sustained a stain

By going against the grain

You thought you did right

To put up the fight

Then they derailed your train

It really messed with your brain

Threatens to drive you insane

You thought that your back

Was safe from attack

Your trust they cannot regain

Now freedom you’ll never obtain

Like Abel ambushed by Cain

You know you’ll survive

You’ll come out alive

But can you ignore all the pain?

The deer in the snow 

The deer in the snow
Know where to go

But I find myself back there again

The bees though they roam
Know where to find home

But I lose track of time now and then

The trees put down roots
Then produce fruits

But I keep drifting back to Phnom Penh

Trouble, an ode to Eloid*

Ya got trouble
Right here in Sheboygan
With a capital T and that rhymes with E
And that stands for Eloid!

Yessir, ya got trouble
Right here in Bloomington
With a capital T and that rhymes with P
And that stands for pool!

Wrestling in that pool
That pool of Jell-o
Making a mess, part of Eloidfest
Behind his own scene

Next thing he’s on Springer
And he’s an art teacher
But he’s uptight so they don’t treat him right
And he gets booed!

I say we got trouble
Right here in Hollywood
A celebutant, worked in a restaurant
Emcees punk shows

Hosted his own show
Making strange videos
With a capital V and that rhymes with E
And that stands for Eloid!

*Eloid is an underground music emcee and performance artist now residing in Hollywood, California.

A concrete poem, new Daisybrain words, and a prediction about who the next three US presidents will be:
