Original Poems

Love is Deaf and Dumb and Blind

(It seems that he has lost his mind)
His love is deaf and dumb and blind

He does not hear what his friends say,
(He thinks they’re jealous, anyway)

And cannot put it into words
(Explaining? That is ‘for the birds’)

He will not see why she is here
(A gap two decades and a year)

His love has stripped his every sense
(The onset of mere senescence)

She’s willing now to be his bride
(But still take lovers on the side)

Of youthfulness, he’s found the fount
(a fat waist, and fat bank account)

He finds all this so strenuous
(Not seeing she’s contemptuous)

He’s deaf, dumb, blind in all of this
(and so are lust and avarice)
