Haikus for Strange Abandoned Items

Lashed to a tree branch
The abandoned lovey waits.
Days pass, and seasons.
Cruelly shorn of clothes.
Are those her pants in the weeds?
Ah! How the world is weeping!
Cry havoc, gummies!
When the grenade exploded
A part of me died.

Lone chicken nugget.
Once crisp, now not fit for man.
You rest on rough stone.

The jalapeño!
Wedged with such ferocity.
May buttocks meet you.

The humanity!
Who would unleash such terror
Into a calm dawn?

You are so brilliant
You outshine the sun and all
The stars read your blog.

I've been praying for the nugget to return.

You inspire me to be a better person. I LOVE YOU.

If only all jalapenos met such a poetic end...AND some buttocks. This is golden.

Do tell me more about this faceless gay non-millionaire!!!

The Party Pony
A place of wondrous beauty
And all things silly.

Hail, the UNraptured chicken nugget!

Bankruptcy File said...

Good News! Now you can possess an exact copy of the original bankruptcy documents / records. Your bankruptcy court records and documents are readily available after bankruptcy discharge and you can have it in your possession within minutes of your order.

Lost gummy posse,
nuggets, jalepenos, food
Stuff best left unfound.

Oh what a joyful way to start a day!

All your poems and responses are lovely, especially the touching words of "Bankruptcy File." This person is clearly a poet, a gifted poet!

ROFL! Thanks for the laugh! What an awesome way to wrap up a Friday!

Maybe s/he thought the young lady in the tree was you and wanted to help ease the pain before you ended up like the handful of gummies splattered across the pavement.

I love how you have such a soft spot in your heart for abandoned items and stray cats. I see Sainthood in your future ;-)

my word verification: Tylato. This is what happens when you combine tylenol with a tomato
