If There's Nonsense, Then There's Sense (A True Story)

ronald the duck, corsarius' laptop, and nonsense
i give up
i spent the past four hours writing a piece
that soon turned to a piece
of crap
words of crap, phrases of crap, heck,
i knew it was doom
when it all devolved into rap

-- put in the rhymes, put in the rhythm
it's all about the chimes and the m*th*f*ck*n' Schism --

when the commas looked like fleas
jumping from line to line,
when the question mark was Death's scythe
(deathly white, with that carnuba shine)
when the periods were puddles of roach poop,
when the a, b, c, to z
were a putrid hieroglyph soup.

slapping my face in vexation, the pimple goes pop
it hurts, but not really,
only if you slash the wound
with a pen, and use the same pen
to write a disaster waiting to

(DING! shameless rhyme!)

trying to make treasure from trash?
impossible, but only if the pus remains on the face
because you didn't wash
(if impossible has a "but",
then is it entirely possible
that impossible is

put in the rhythm, put in the rhyme
it doesn't matter if this chatter is just for
the (mean)time!

*This piece was written by Ronald the Duck. Absolutely. That's my laptop, and I seriously doubt it that you mistook the duck as the Corsarius. And yeah, that cussword is without asterisks in the final version.

Your imagination is definitely wild. But it's a whole other something to put it down into writing.

I had fun reading it, really. I think that's what happens when you rhyme and rhythm rightly. It's like a jaded limerick, or a dark Dr. Seuss poem. (And cynicism's a good thing, ok?) Reminds me of the idea that Roald Dahl has written, er, adult stories in addition to children's books. Fun! Fun! Funnnnn!

Hey Corsi. What about a Shakesperean sonnet version of this post? :D

j angelo, maybe when work clears out, tsk.

nina and yayam, thanks!

ia, "rhyme and rhythm rightly"? i thought i was doing it all wrong, hehe. i'm glad you enjoyed reading this, this 'thing' that sprouted from the frustrations of a five-hour, three-page piece that went to crapsville (i told you, it was a true story). thanks :)

abaniko, that would be way beyond my abilities, LOL. let's wait for another failed piece that might elicit a crazed poetry binge.
