MEAN OLD AL BUNDY BLUES

Folder: 
MEANDERTHAL MAN

 

It really sucks

when you lose

a great idea

 

it happened to me

as recently as last night

 

I was at

a Jono Manson concert

at the TLA

beer necessitated

a trip to the Men’s room

 

I saw interesting writing

above the urinal

and the creative juices

began to flow

 

but I had no pen

so I couldn’t write

a brilliant piece

forming and shaping

inside my head

 

It was a classic;

one of my best

 

unfortunately,

I couldn’t remember it

and spent the entire day

trying to retrace my thoughts

and recapture the idea

 

and what’s worse

is that I spent the day

riding around humming “Psycho Dad”

 

 

it’s one of those rotten days

you just have to endure

and hope to recover

 

and so I’ll sit on my laurels

and proclaim it to be

the best poem I’ve never written
