Red Wolf Poems – Wordle # 30 (with a twist) – November 8, 2014

I elaborate the ritual and
Tolerate your shallow make-up.
… Just incinerate these candles glowing – and
Then perforate these slack silver letters…
I exasperate demands for love
And create my potions with great care.

By the fireplace sit, drink my magic wine
Known as Love Potion Number 9.

(c) G.s.k. ’14

Wordleing – Malengine Malediction – November 4, 2014

Malengine Malediction

Now, curtsey when you meet the master –
Follow the game rules and don’t despair,
The aftermath will bring you the answer
To the question you ne’er asked.

“Malengine malediction” (you’ll hear the master wail)
“Swear ne’er go near the zombie mash!
And when stalking the castle keep –
The ghoul must walk next to the old bat …”

“The most important rule to know,
Which you must always remember,
Don’t debase the scrawny black cat,
For she’s your magic succubus!”

“When the werewolf and the ogre wail …
Throw your shoe at them … but I swear,
T’is better to honor, the gargoyle in his lair
And the Jabberwocky’s sacred tree.”

Once the game is over my dear,
Curtsey once again and then,
We’ll eat hot flambéed plum pudding
And open all our gifts …

We’ll have such lovely holiday fun!
A right rum scary Halloween …
uhm … I mean …
We’ll have a merry Christmas day!

The Visit

In a kitchen bright with chromium shelves,
A plethora of pans and a conveyor belt,
The blast of the oven freed a vortex of smells –
Of apples, onions and cinnamon too.

The receptionist stood at the kitchen door
Tapping his foot in disgust and dismay
He sought out someone to clean up the hall
(A mad tourist had smeared vaseline everywhere).

In the bedlam of the kitchen he went ignored,
Everyone was busy doing this or that …
He let out such a wail of ire and bile
He surprised a young mermaid, swimming nearby.

The chef in his cap glowered balefully
At the man who’d made his orange souffle fall
Pivotal for the evening meal it’d been …
Now he’d have to start over again.

The vaseline gone, the souffle risen high,
The hotel was ready for their special guest …
Everyone wore their uniforms with pride …
As the Michelin gourmet sat awarding his stars.

Yes, the Michelin map now has a new five-star hotel
Near a hillside that overlooks the Zuiderzee,
The gourmet raves at the wonders of their orange souffle
And the bright clean sheen of the reception hall.
