Right! (A Nonsense Poem)

just right

Nonsense  Poem


“Ready!” said the red injun,
Reading from his righteous book::
“Reason being that with raisin bread,
Rye.” the red rainman wryly said:
“Is simply silly and unsuitable!”
Aghast in angst Agnes did reply:
“If right is rigorously to be reaped then
corrections cordially we must coordinate
Alas, my royal red injun friend..
Juicy justice seeks the jury today!
Asking raisins for the rising sun
and rye inside the wiry moon!”

“Hot Hottentots hosted
a cold cod chowder dinner,
And big beginnings were thus being born!
Tho, smelly was the small smorgasburg…
However we of the judicial jury
Rightly write this our ritual writ
Staing that :
Red injuns have no rightful reasons
to wryly deny rye in raisin bread!”
Thus the jury justified its sentence.

“Sensible seemed the jury’s sentence!” the journalist said

And I?

Aye, I hid away the high racks of rye
and raisined bread with good reason
and said:

“Rights? Oh yeah there are rights and rites,
and some are really alright
and sometimes things are just right…

    • It was more than anything else an exersie in putting words that more or less rhyme together…it’s called alliteration…the poem was nonsense, not much to understand actually… 🙂


        • lol…don’t know how this post has gone as far as others are concerned…but it was an exercise…practically speaking and indian decideds with his lady friend that you can’t make raisin bread with rye flour…it’s taken before a jury who writes ou teir sentnce using th 4 words of the week…stating that you cna use rye flour if one wants to…a comment was given iby a journalist and my reply is if it right…then it right. Just nonsense…I would have liked to see someone try to give a serious explanation to it … hahaha…


          • I think you create …. fantastic nonsense. I have learned to to read and understand poetry through your short ones. Still have problems with the long ones, probably because I have to think a bit harder. *smile
            Have a nice Sunday.
