More things found floating around in my head

Sort of a sequel to my earlier post...

Some old empty bottles
A yak you can rent
Some forks that are tarnished
A letter unsent

A rusty old pitchfork
Impaled through a lung
A ladder with only
The bottommost rung

An old contact lens
On a filthy dead bird
A Mercedes-Benz
And an elephant turd

All floating around
In my crazy old head
It may someday escape
Probably after I'm dead

Beautiful *sniff* just beautiful!
You have no idea how long I've been searching for an elephant to rent! LOL

metalmom said...

Or a yak turd!

My bad--I went dyslexic for a sec in my brain!!(old age)

Janna said...

Metalmom: Perhaps we can work out an agreement where you rent the elephant turd on weekends...

Marilyn said...

This has more of a formal tone to it than your earlier work. Nice imagery.

Matt-Man said...

Watch out for the dead bird it might have been killed by West Nile Virus...

Mr. Fabulous said...

You can't RENT a yak. You have to LEASE it.

*hands Janna the silver polish*

Janna said...

Marilyn: I'm nothing if not picturesque.

Matt-Man: So I shouldn't have eaten it?

Mr. Fab: I dunno, the rental guy looked legit to me...

Turnbaby: Thanks... I can sell this and make a payment on the yak.
