Me, Poet


 Thinking in terms

of “character” traits

does W envy the V

for her Waist?

since plainly

V Vainly

watches her slants,

the W tried

but W can’t..

And what about M?

does it Make her Mad?

that N’s always Noshing,

but Never gets fat?

as all letters know

M Moder-ates Much,

whatever M “ate”

was Merely enough…

The same goes for B

who’s Bothered by P

since B is as Basic

to meals as can B

He Broils

He Bakes

But Blasted

P Poaches

winning the Battle

of Bulge

with aPProaches

and gloating–

P Pairs,

and Pigs out

on blankets

wraPPed around aPPs


around frank–

—it’s no wonder

that speech is


with such letter envy

and such letter hating!

Clearly impelling

a global truncating

–of petulant words

that need separating,

’til finally one day

we’ll boot acronyms, too

reverting to grunts

as cavemen would do.
