GUSHER








You think this is all
random
but even slot machines
are programmed
to spill their guts
at predetermined intervals...

the only truly random thing
is the poet
and his muse
and when that gusher
may be gettin' ready to blow

so stand back
ladies and gentlemen
because there's one now
(you can spot him by that
 tormented look in his eye)

as we move within range
it's advised that you prudently
cover your heads

we have pith helmets for sale
in the gift shop

  7. True indeed. "you can spot them by the torment in his eye." That's a great line.

  8. Tee hee... I've been on the gushing end of that myself! Those last two lines are particularly funny. Well done, it made me giggle. Hoping your torment will be milder today.
