[civil strife]

worldwide pest control
how does your garden

washtubbed apple dumplings
all they little darlin's
smashmouth gumbo
carousing the plush
rimbaud in abyssinia
exiled by desire
for left
and over
child bride
hyena bride
slavish bride
he to her and backwards
this triumphant morn
the worldwide pests pest on
a vigorous melange
of carefree doom
they matter not as
we matter more
perhaps even most.
the hannahs of the world
press on, we shrivel,
the party answers
with their jumbo paper
clips, & the princes
with their henrys
& their bones
ask the creeper
one more time
just who be
the creepiest -
me or thee?

Well, I dare not say I'm the creepiest, lest I get eaten by a hyena groom or wiped out by worldwide pest control.

Isn't Abyssinia a wonderful word?? I think our country should change its name to abyssinia...

T: I'm for the change - change the flag, while we're at it, for sure - but I don't think Rimbaud would have exiled himself to this Abyssinia.

You sho ain't the creepiest.

At various times, I think my children felt that for a brief, small second as I firmly said, "No."

haha - Rimbaud is creepy thinks I but you two are pretty funny! Does Hannah get her prayers answered? Are we the pests? Abyssina is too hard to spell, could we still be USA? (United States of Abyssinia)

Dee: Rimbaud certainly had his creepy and skanky sides, but there's still something there that calls, and for me, it's mostly that silence in Africa.
