It's blithering NOISY!
|"THE DAILY POEM"
CONTEST ENTRY for March 29th, 2018 ... (I lost!) ...
PROMPT: It’s turned into a lovely, sunny day here today, but still windy, and I’ve been listening to our wind chimes as I write. In light of that, I’d love to read some poems about the sounds of spring. Any number of lines and any form.
It's SPRING n' now's the time of year when new life starts to grow
when joyous sounds abound around most everywhere I go
BUT ... hibernating noisy people's hearts are filled with joy
cuz Springtime means they now can play with all their noisy toys
Them custom muffler'd motorcycles - sure do gotta say
it wouldn't be the same without 'em on a sunny day
The Harley's, they're the most ear-piercing on my old man's ears
especially when VROOMING up through all their noisy gears
Roll down your windows all you young'uns, as you're driving past
I love to listen to your "music" … turn it up FULL BLAST
Boom boxes BOOMING, bloody HIP HOP all the damn day long
Whoever told that JUSTIN BIEBER he could sing a "SONG"?
Let's CRANK that RAP CRAP … HEAVY METAL … SCREAMING GUITAR SOLOS
Fire up them back yard swimmin' pools - kids yellin' "MARCO … POLO!"
TURN ON them air condish'ners folks … TWELVE THOUSAND BTU's
Invite your drunken buddies for a back yard BAR-B-QUE
An' you homeowners - EVERY SUNDAY - take CARE of them LAWNS
Let's MOW 'em, EDGE 'em … BLOW THAT GRASS 'til EVERY BLADE is GONE
Then everybody let your YAPPY DOGS OUTSIDE to BARK
Bored young folks set your FIREWORKS off PAST MIDNIGHT in the PARK
Hot rods n' street bikes VROOMING up n' down my once-quiet street
Without this DAMN CACOPHONY, Spring wouldn't be complete
SOMEWHERE ... a gentle breeze is blowin' down a country road ...
an' if you listen, you can hear the croakin' of a toad ...
an' birdies chirping as they work to build their summer nests ...
The SOUNDS of all GOD'S CREATURES as they go about their quests
SOMEWHERE ... folks KNOW SILENCE ... and it fills their EARS with JOY
But there's no joy in MY EARS ... cuz it's SPRINGTIME! (boy, oh boy ... ) ... .. ..
By the way ... I lost ... ...
