THERE ARE NEVER ENOUGH PEAS


Dadabot sits down to watch tv one summer’s eve.  He’s not sure whether he was just willed into being or arrived on a spaceship from somewhere, but either way, he is confused by the advert breaks – thanks to http://wanderingeileen.wordpress.com/2011/06/12/601/ for inspiring this!

He of frugal protocol rhubarb delicious

An accident had at home

THERE

And he did but pretend nonchalance

All the while cows laughed.

Fungal toe infection clutches

Standard operating procedure

Part of asking questions urgently

Beautiful ladies, handmaidens of Venus

Swim, dance, sing and.

Perfect match another hygienic somewhat.

ARE

There is never enough time

Peas are shown, green, grown,

Fresh, frozen, five a day

Seeing that birds eyes are taken they see no more.

Freeze your elvish wrinkles, swish.

Peas freeze,

Knees on yours again.  Pout.

Eat more peas.

Count how many peas so that

Fat you are not.

And free

NEVER

Points mean prizes and peas are points.

Lots of points.

Points need protecting with he.

To be free.

ENOUGH

Questioning quality pervades eyelashes,

Long.ones and

the asks when ambient treacle

Rescues pandas sobbing.

PEAS

  2. This I thought was creatively brilliant! All the while I read it, I heard a voice speaking, “How many more times are you going to judge me?” This is probably a weird comment but I thought your writing here is very beautiful with the way you posed everyday existence!
