Wordle – Dr. Surf – a rant poem -December 30, 2014

Oh this conceited android!
This stupid illeistic dude
full of peppy mischief …
(my mind begins to fizzle …
I spew … I strangle yes I gurgle -)
it tells me that my modem (IT)
has gone off-line,
crashing me into a cyber cess-pit
at the intersection
between W.P.* and Blogger.

Up pops that draftsack ‘giggling’:
“your phone line is disconnected”
(though the lights are all aglow)
with that fixed quirky smile
its ridicule is plain …
I stammer, almost scream,
envisioning roughened bricks
or heavy chains of zinc
to beat in its electronic brain …

So, here I write enraged …
before this glowing screen
linked to this closed off ghetto
made of (uni)code
in heated human exasperation …

Then up it pops up once more …
Dr. Surf ** always smiling tells me
now (maybe) I can publish
since the modem’s back on-line

I think it’s rather clear that since I got up this morning I’ve been having connection problems … this happens rather often lately and I can’t figure out what the problem is, since the phone company refuses to come out and look at their lines …  >:-(

Rondelet practice

Rondelet 1

No words come
my mind has become a blank
No words come
and I just feel so very numb
Whom do I have to thank
For this malicious and awful prank
No words come

Rondelet 2

That’s life
One of my favorite sayings, yes,
That’s life
When I want to belie the sense of strife
Sometimes thing are just a mess
But there’s no use to swear I guess
That’s life

Rondelet 3

Yes, it’s a strange conjunction
That our world is passing through
Yes, it’s a strange conjunction
Seems nothing can really function
From human affairs to the WordPress Crew
Whatever is a goddess to do
Yes, it’s a strange conjunction

Rondelet 4

Ok, now I’ve almost calmed down
written awhile and seems that all is fine
Ok, now I’ve almost calmed down
I think I’ll take a walk downtown
Maybe it’s some mysterious sign
That I’m feeling so divine
Ok, now I’ve almost calmed down


Quatern: Black and White World


Black and White World

Tired…I want a black and white world.
Without angry passionate reds!
Gone forever dark blue sadness!
Hide from me the green of envy!

A life without shades of somber grey,
Tired…I want a black and white world.
Gone those saturated contrasts,
Give me a world of neutral tones.

A world of unified belief,
Without strife, war and injured grief.
Tired…I want a black and white world.
Of common goals and forbearance.

I’m weary of this mortal coil,
And lest I soon should look away,
I feel that I must surely expire!
Tired…I want a black and white world.
