You’re invited to the comment fest

The following is a poem I wrote for Art of Pouring My Art Out.  The subject is this weekend’s comment fest going on at his blog to try to get as many comments as possible on one post. Last I checked the total was well over 17,000.   Art is hoping for at least 20,000 comments.
Stop on by and leave a “hi”

Artful Perceptions

We have a difference of opinion
If you think I am a minion
I am my own boss
Unless I’ve been hitting the sauce
So let’s be on equal footing
I’ll need whipped cream on my pudding

Don’t give me salsa for my chips
I want sour cream and Lipton onion dips
Will there be food, I could be famished
Maybe a burger or ham sandwich?

Will there be alcoholic drinks?
I’ll get as stoned as the Egyptian sphinx
How about a Waldorf salad?
I don’t want any apples added

I think I’ve covered the party menu
Bossy me, did I offend you?
If there’s no food,
I’ll still take part
These are just suggestions, Art

Just one more thing and then I’ll go
Maybe a few more things, you never know
I’ve been wondering, I’ve been thinking
About the party slowly shrinking
As the weekend moves along
There’ll be thinning of the throng

Even the loyal minions will tire
But think of all that you’ll acquire
Maybe a new record, if not no matter
The sky won’t fall, the earth won’t shatter

You’ll think of another absorbing task
For all your minions you would ask
And they will do anything for you
Even though you have a loose screw

Take heart it’s okay to be a little crazy
A few petals short of a daisy
Nutty, fruitcake, loco, out to lunch
A few bananas short of a bunch
Wacko, gonzo, mad as a March hare
Oh, I’m just joking, really, I swear

You make me laugh, you’re entertaining
Despite my wisecracks and complaining
I wish you luck on the latest endeavor
You have guile, real skill, you’re very clever

You’ll do well with your comment fest
And your minions will do their best
It’ll be a fun weekend activity
I’ll show up at the festivity

I’ll polish my keyboard, dust the screen
Roll up my sleeves, get plenty of caffeine
I’ve had enough rhyming, my friend
So, let’s just call this the end


When I was a kid I wanted to be an "atomic" scientist. Not anything my mother expected of me. Well, I became a scientist, just not an atomic one.

Odyssey of a Novice Writer

Aspiring novelist. Avid reader of fiction. Reviewer of books. By day, my undercover identity is that of meek, mild-mannered legal assistant, Kate Loveton, working in the confines of a stuffy corporate law office; by night, however, I'm a super hero: Kate Loveton, Aspiring Novelist and Spinner of Tales. My favorite words are 'Once upon a time... ' Won't you join me on my journey as I attempt to turn a hobby into something more?
