Up Shit Creek Again

Abandoned at Birth

God sleeps off insobriety
In soft folds of clouds,
His ears numbed to complaints
Of inferiors He has created,
In endless number,
With such wanton abandon.

The hills are dead and deaf;
Mountain streams, long dried out,
Unpuddle.

The saints one prays to
Decline to get involved.


- Lon Cheney


Your Editor is well and truly up Shit Creek. It's worth reading the entire thread to see the depths to which your intrepid Editor will sink in his quest for... for....?

Ohhh, no!

My newly budding career as a SERIOUS POET is now officially rooned!

I composed that poem in a few seconds while online, but just as a lark. Now it is here for all(?) to see.

I canNOT stop laffing.

Paul, you are TOOO funny!

Lon, the poem can be easily removed if you so wish. Just say the word and deposit $US20,000,000 into our Nigerian Bank account - unless you happen to actually be me, in which case we will multi-publish the piece (which will clearly be seen to show signs of genius) all over the internet.

EUREKA!

Oops. Pardon me, but I can't help feeling a sense of ebullience at having conquered the Post a Comment Demon! I may never stop now!

I shall wait and see how many times my?/your? poem gets plastered "all over the internet" to see if I really are you ... or if you really am me. If this is the sole place it appears, I guess I will have my answer.

And it's not worth the $US20,000,000 I don't have to have my *poem* removed. SCR really deserves to have it, anyway.

Yours in Identity Crisis Mode,

Our esteemed Anticorruption Monitor failed to mention that we have a very reasonable fee of $US 500,000 should our poets desire art to accompany their fine poems. Unpuddles, given they are extremely difficult to photograph, will cost an additional $US 100,000.

Dear Pat The Anonymous,

I am so glad to see SOMEONE
noticed THE best word in my pome
"Abandoned At Birth".
I do believe UNPUDDLES
was the key word that
rendered my opus eminently suitable
for Sh-t Creek Review.

As for accompanying art work ...
being an artiste myself,
(and a broke one, thanks to your esteemed and corrupt Anti-Corruption Manager, Paul), may I supply my OWN artwork?

(Just asking.)
