A collaboration over too much coffee.

Anti anti-drug-diatribe

Hey khuto dreaming
droolingly of a robust lathi
Wonder if you could withstand
a collective kick from caferati
If you do, perhaps a deluge
of vowels could emerge, smartie!

What we consume greedily
and what we emit whole heartedly
May be chemicals, or words
or ideas, belchingly or fartedly
Our addiction is our problem
singly doubly, mixed or partedly!

So march yourself kindly back
to the blog or rat-tat-a-tat board
And if it is words or ideas
you cannot learn to silently hoard
Please imbibe more and more coffee
- a frothing cup we can afford !

hey girls at college with me
[grandmas now] used to treat me
like a jukebox [ a slot machine]
would demand a poem, so became
and expert doggerel churner.
Will write another soon....

Thanks Max!! Like Libbie Fudim said:
"Love me or hate me, but spare me your indifference..."

indifference like an icy mountain
sits on all of us, we could hardly
pull ourselves out from underneath
its monumental lethargy -
so lets pull one another out...

cheers !
