Last week, we crowned Island Rider, Queen of the Haiku! Her social commentary on the heavy loads our homeless carry smack into fading shades of graying shadows, was just too powerful a punch. Even for the always favorite Blazng, who gut checked us with her ever plastered SMILE! (Anyone thinks she's just drunk, or is it the pound of plastered on make-up and rat poison that makes her smile stick so?)
I don't know if it was her utter excitement for the WIN or she, too, thinks I'm HOT, but this week Island Rider has decided to honor me with an entire theme in my name. (HELLO?!?!? Is there anything more pesky than a silly gay boy with his bone on? Hardly...HaHa!!!)
For her, I have two
Fire's on the mountain
Burns the flesh that taunts my soul
Jesus cries within
FIRE! FIRE! Brain's on FIRE!
Doused with water; didn't work
Demons rule the roost
This second 'ku actually comes from a poem I wrote about a year and a half ago.
Drag'n On My Heels:
Fire! FIRE! My brain's on Fire!!
Find the town crier...MY DAMN BRAIN IS ON FIRE!
Gun'n my engine; running free, running clear
Always keeps up, always stays near
Dragon's on the loose; I'm start'n ta tire
Bogged down in the mud; filthy with mire
Head's caught in flames of the funeral pyre!
The Dragon, she keeps coming, matches in hand
Comes with her demons, that make up her band
So heated up, I'm almost ablaze,
Choking and stricken within a smoldering haze
Can't find my way out of this illogical maze
Ring Ring; "911, what's your emergency?"
"Hello! My damn brain is on FIRE!"
You tell me, "Hold on. Cool water's on the way"
I scratch and I scream; I keep you at bay
"Oil and water; not a good mix
Where's that damn dragon...I'm needing a fix?!?"
Fight fire with fire!
That's what they say
Go down with the ship?
I don't wanna pay!
Can't foot the bill?
Best pray for God's WILL!!
Sorry, not my most funny of posts, but like most crap in life, if you flush it; it will swirl...just pray there's no residue left sit'n in the bowl! If there is, though...keep on FLUSH'N!
