poem: diet of worms

benny boy coming late
to the party &

later still to

the infallible truth

that latex

is best. were the lines

down between B-Boy

and his boss, was there

dissension in the conference

room, coffee boiling over

while the papal pabulum turns

to shoe goo, scuffling the toes?

wonder with me, lucid sisters and brothers,

just what jetpack landed in

the papal port-a-potty

for such wisdom

to light? Ma & Pa,

y'all continue on,

rockin' the rhythms of

your nights, your hanks

still been panked

by Papal B, he spent many

long lonely latex-free

nights in front

of the papal bulls,

shovels at the ready,

and with the spiffy

avalanche comes

a sweet Benny nod

to the boys in

the streets, moral

paragons beyond

the grace of

ma & pa in they

nuptial beds,

so happy

the least have

been beatified

for one and all, for

all the little missies,

the rocket scientists,

and the remaining

Neanderthals down

Vatican way.

You'd better stock up on indulgences after writing this one, bro. I can feel the hell fires that guard the sanctity of papal infallibility just waiting to singe your poet's pen (and other parts as well). I came up with a title for a poem today. I was thinking of it in other lights, but it might also work for something along these lines. "When Boy Toys Run Amok"

Peace out, bro.

Heading for the catacombs as we speak . . .

Can't wait to see the poem that goes with the title.

I think you nailed this one, every last thesis.

Anno: I felt bad picking on the boys in the streets, but how is it that they come in for Benny's twisted dispensation, while the rest of his flock - not to mention them girls at the curbs - get thrown (again) under the bus?

After the Berlin fall in '89, I thought, the next totalitarian system that must fall is the Papacy. Long time to come . . .

What a bunch of bull is some of the Catlick stuff.

San: You were ever able to nail it all down with a crushing blow. "Catlick": I likes it. (Clicks Like button.)

personal blogs are blanket blocked at the factory these days unless I ask for one to be unblocked. Maybe I will just leave this one alone for awhile. Oh my. I didn't have to do much pondering to catch the nuances here.

Straight from the mouth of papes, Dee. All the news what's fit to print, and then some.

First suspected clumsy condom use: 1000 BCE. Condom use definitely common: mid-1400's. Catholic Church catches on to condoms: 2010. Not a minute too soon. I wonder if Galileo used condoms?

Happy holiday, by the way.

Always count on you putting it all in perspective, Richard. Very good to hear from you, and glad to see that the Church is only 3000 years behind. I guess male prostitutes are a recent development as well.

I suppose heliocentrism was not the real Galilean crime; it was them damn condoms.
