Poets and Death

Poets and Death

35 Comments

That’s a great poem – witty as well as a bit of a bluff – making poetry out of a dire situation and thus belying your own opening statement.

Stumbling into a lion’s den definitely won’t evoke poetry in me 😛

Great images, Davy. Morning smiles with visions of a misstep in a zoo… 😊

Witty & unique if a terrifying thought! To be up close & personal with a lion…I suppose some great poetry may be found there before terror sets in.😩

Love it. Totally true too, last time I was in with the lions and broke out my pocket moleskin, the lion sat down next to me and said, “moleskins are so last year, SailorPoet, you should totally buy your journals at the five and dime. cheap sheik is in this year with all the hipsters.”

I was a little taken aback.

    Thank you Mr. S and apologies for the delayed response. It was Mrs. D’s birthday weekend so all fibres committed to her pleasure and wellbeing. Beware of Lions they tend to lull you into a sense of false security with their chatter. Never turn your back 🙂

Yes, but from the lion’s perspective, a poet stumbling into his enclosure is a celebratory occasion indeed. Dinner!
