He calls himself “fashion poet”,

One or two others know it…

In pursuits

Avoiding lawsuits,

He certainly doesn’t want to blow it!

Him being man and all,

Must carefully judge his call…

With less passion

Than stereotypical fashion,

Not being the Beast at the ball.

Gender matters to him,

Especially if women…

They’re the kind

He most has in mind,

Do they mind if he tiptoes in?

I hear in the tropics and Middle East,

Rainy season comes with the least…


To those nations

That think it a blessing but a beast.

It feels like the tropics around here,

With “endless” rain so drear…

At least, as some say,

We’re not swept away

Which is a concept that we fear.

Observations from living upstairs….

Ducks in the back yard have airs

That their temporary pond

May last beyond

Their needs or wants or cares!
