a tale of tails, tenacity, and tedium, as told by me, usually barefoot and bellowing

The Skull and The Lady

The skull asked
As the lady turned
How came you here?
I will not be spurned 

It's rude to peer
Up a lady's dress
Unless you ask
You meatless mess

The eyeless skull exclaimed
I did not would not look
Without
Being ashamed

The pastel paint
Blushed
And apologized 
then she hushed

Why are we here?
I am dead
You glow with beauty
Where's the common thread?

The owner of here 
Without consent
Placed beauty by a skull
Contradiction to the extreme extent

Enjoy our time
We'll never know
What pieces she keeps
Or what she will throw

There is much truth in this, and to be heeded. Is the image in a museum?

Ha, love it. The things you come up with when you are on a roll. I feel the freedom to want to express yourself in every word you put down And the hungry need also. Cherish this time as a free thinking poet, dear. These are the best days of your life. xox
