My favorites are the free birds that - well, you know... You know? Whereas I'm all like, 'How do I stick a whatsit into the round binkadink, wrapped in floojipples? Maybe a shibboing would do it?' I'm amazed that some of those splendid creatures don't get much attention, or sometimes are dismissed as colorless. Sure, their plumes lack the glossy sheen of kept pets in shiny cages, but, really, they should all be spreading their wings- -whoosh- up- past the- -swish- into loop-de-loops, soaring into spins through -zip- -zoom- with me holding on for dear life, thick emotions coursing / heart pounding / anticipating - more, more, give me more -please- of that raw worm you're chewing up with such gusto, relish, perhaps, for a hotdog. I'd gladly be a swine, rooting at the rank, wet guano they casually drop from the heavens.
d’Verse Open Link Night
For OLN at d’Verse, I’d like to share this blank verse poem I wrote one year ago in Dec. ’21.
Let’s write poetry together!
When it comes to partnership, some humans can make their lives alone – it’s possible. But creatively, it’s more like painting: you can’t just use the same colours in every painting. It’s just not an option. You can’t take the same photograph every time and live with art forms with no differences.–Ben Harper (b. 1969)
Would you like to create poetry with me and have a completed poem of yours featured here at the Skeptic’s Kaddish? I am very excited to have launched the ‘Poetry Partners’ initiative and am looking forward to meeting and creating with you… Check it out!

Lol, I get the feeling of a strong “love-lovelessness, lovey dovey ” for these people-bombing diving birds.
binkadink (sounds hilarious)
Full of versatility, carefree monogomous
Fresh and salt water consumer
Shibboing boing boing.

😊, that’s right, a giggle or a smile with a laugh in between; these are the raw materials and ingredients of a wonderful prayer recipe.😊😂
You threw in some onomatopoeia, some sniglets, and a good dose of humor!!

Funny poem, David. And it’s true we take these amazing creatures for granted most of the time.

I adored the diction and the descriptions, the funny words that you included are especially dear to me because I could recognize myself talking like that, day to day, about several things.

Birdie birdie in the sky
why you poo poo in my eye?
I’m a big boy, I don’t cry –
I’m just glad that cows don’t fly.
🐮 Danial 🐮 ~ very funny!
I think a shibboing would definitely do it, good sir! 😀 This reminds me of a classmate who had bullied me for years. On our senior trip to an amusement park near Salt Lake City, Utah (where there’s a healthy sea gull population), this bully crawled off the bus and was immediately splattered on the head with sea gull droppings. It was exquisite revenge from the heavens for all those years of being bullied by this guy. So, this poem brings back happy memories for me! 😀
💩 Mike 💩 ~ hahaha!
