A Streak of Mischief

Posted on May 25, 2011


My old shipmate, Adona the Beautiful !

A Streak of Mischief

Today I am Peking Man,
my fossils cause a stir
tomorrow I’ll be Napoleon
my hand above Mon Coeur.
I might just try Mickey Mouse
and woo my Minnie dear
or even visit Kermit’s house
and bring a crate of beer.

I could perform a noble deed
and stubbornly persevere;
I thought of charging on a steed
to rescue Guinevere
My people all would love me
and want me for their king
for all the splendid poetry
and ballads I would sing.

It’s dazzling what a Celtic lad
can conjure up in space
I’ll be another Galahad
and save the Human race!
There are no walls that can withstand
the onslaught of my pen
I can mock the mightiest,
the princelings amongst men.

Our finest thoughts are pure and free
and lead to true nobility
unfettered like a howling gale
you all can tell a stirring tale
The status quo is just a myth
it festers in your head
it will breed and conquer you
until your dreams are dead.

We all are equal in our skins
a fact worth more than gold
and that is where it all begins
and visions can unfold.
And every morning nice and bright
in the mirror shines the light.
You cannot stop the rising sun
not even with the biggest gun.

The Truth is here!… to poke some fun
A streak of mischief on the run
He smiles at me and I wave back
happily, he has the knack
he makes me feel I have a bud
who knows I am… an okay spud.
And every morning nice and bright
in the mirror shines his light…

(Him and I are really tight
his poetry sucks but that’s all right…)

One response to “A Streak of Mischief”

  1. I’m pretty sure that Kermit prefers Ovaltine, mostly.  Although word on the street is that Miss Piggy hits the hard stuff, just sayin’.   Fun poem!  Creative and joyful is always a good combination!
