Poor Hugh (Senryu)

by Ingrid de Klerck   Oct 19, 2015

Watch the old boy drool.
His house stacked with candy, yet
no teeth left to eat.


(Sorry for the long link, but I was informed the one I had here before did not work anymore.)

    I think the person who down voted your poem probably did so because they thought the link was an eyesore. Honestly, it is a bit of one, but the words and the article go so well together... it's quite honestly beautiful. This was supposed to be a funny poem, but before it made me laugh it made me think... If you purchase so much of a product, eventually you'll tire of it. That is the key to happiness and maintenance is moderation.

    I can't express enough how impeccable this piece is.

    Wonderful write,

    Hello Ingrid,

    this is certainly a, laugh out loud poem. I mean how do you hammer a nail in without a hammer!

    I am glad I checked the link out as it made me go, ah yes, I see!

    A poet without a voice to speak or pen to write of a world stepped in wonder.

    In one word my dear Ingrid 'Inspirational'

    Take care,

    (((hugs))) xx

      Thank you guys for your thoughtful comments:)

      Men like Hugh, who treat women like disposable objects of lust make a mockery out of the sacred relationship between a man and a woman.
