JUDGMENT DAY

OK, April 28 technically isn’t Judgment Day — it’s GREAT POETRY READING DAY. Whether it’s a day for reading great poetry, as opposed to a great day for reading poetry, I hesitate to say. In any case, I’m writing it, not reading it, so you be the poem’s judge (keeping in mind, I might add, that I live on a two-way street in the city of Recipro — should you ever find yourself in need of Reciprocity of the unsolicited praise kind):

IS THIS GREAT POETRY, OR WHAT?

The power of suggestion
Is that it begs the question.

    Thank you both. Michaeline, there’s an unwritten (or maybe it’s written) rule in humor that if you have to explain it, it’s not funny, so never explain your jokes. As I said in my April 21 post (WHAT’S SO FUNNY?): “A joke that cracks you up, I may not get” – and vice versa, as in this case. So let’s just chalk this up to different strokes for different folks, and let it go at that. 🙂 or 😦

    How about a post devoted to great poetry about Judgement Day? Even as we type, the beast slouches towards Bethlehem to be born.

      A lot of blood has gone over the dam since that WWI era poem….including the Second Coming of a World War. Now it’s the Third Coming that raises the specter of Judgment Day. I’ll keep you posted as long as the human condition remains comical.

    Judgement is coming and sooner than we all think.

    The correct response to Michaline is this one.

    Thank you — maybe there’s something to this “power of suggestion” thing after all! 🙂

    Michaeline, I thought your first comment referred to my post as a whole, not just “that little poem.” It’s funny how easy it is for people to misunderstand each other, ain’t it…but it’s not so funny that wars have been fought over misunderstandings that get people with attitudes all bent out of shape. 😦 🙂
