for ld, since she asked, my poems, karandava revisited


mixed feelings

i saw the goose
in the water
he was really far.
the rock felt just right in my hand
i knew i couldn't hit him
but i did
i hope he's ok.


if i were a gopher

if i were a gopher
i'd dig tunnels under that pig,
so many that he'd soon
sink into the ground.
it's for is own good,
low-flying fighter pilots
won't see him.

thanks, cody and chitta. wow, i've never been called a genius before, cody. one of the poems is really true, i have hit so many things with rocks! often, not the right things, like birds. i just keep thinking, well,there's no danger, i hit the last one, and this one's even farther out in the water.

you hit me with your tractor beam from 300 miles out!

i am a gray goose too. the other guy told me the rock didn't hurt much.

these are perfect donkey poems.
