WHAT FOOLS WE HUMANS BE
by Mike Patrick

What fools we humans be,
wasting time fishing for compliments
from our omnipotent thrones.
Looking down, superciliously,
at the harried lives
of the prodigious, docile mass
as it buzzes in agitation below us.
We ask them to ignore the glaring speckles
in our fallow imaginations;
and the lame preconceptions
of the importance
of our journeys through this life.

This is as short as I cold make it without it sounding ridiculous. Okay, so it sounds ridiculous, big deal.

  1. Wordles are such torture for me that the only way is to make them as short as possible. Yours is brilliant!

  2. and I can’t believe how prolific you’ve been today. Sandy must be wishing poetry had never been invented!

    WOW…That is all I can say.

  4. No more ridiculous than my bizarre long form poems,lol! Good job Mike, I love the unusual! Poetry is art, and art does not always have to make sense, it just is what it is.

  5. Marianne says:

    Well done, Mike! “Fishing for compliments” … what an excellent idea. I never thought of using fish in that context. I only saw the fishy swimming in the sea.
