“My Hero’s – Olde Foole” – Shadorma and Double Tetractys – May17, 2015

My hero’s
not a superman
a wizard
or a mage
he says he’s just an olde foole …
like a sphinx I think!

bard
poet
song writer
a sweet sweet voice
and with a heart as big as Alaska
he was born an Air Force brat just like me
so I tell you
my hero’s
Olde Foole –
friend!

I’ve never been a hero worshipper – and I’m not now, but if I had to choose a hero, and it seems I do for the Mindlovemisery’s Menagerie’s Tale Weaver prompt I could do worse than choosing my dear friend, Ye Olde Foole.

Also written for B&P’s Shadorma and Beyond – shadorma (a non-rhyming six-line poem in 3/5/3/3/7/5) – Tetractys 1, 2, 3, 4, 10 syllables (total of 20)

    A wonderful tribute, Bastet! Yes – he’s very worthy of the title. (Ya hear that, Olde Foole?)
    Great work! 😀
