a game within poems

the opening intro anyways… fade out

 

…and so we’ll spin the wheel what should happen.
will ya win smiles or a slapping.
spin spin spin – with your grin
lets see what you’ve to win
the wheel has stopped -what’s to happen?

I stand in the aisle
choosing tween 10 cents more or less
theirs…mine…which pile?
so I bought blue cheese dressing
soon enough salads caressing.

oh what an ar-tiste!   break out the lemons
our sarcasm ‘s increased with amateurish art noodling.
tell ’em audience with  cheers or boos
just what shall become of you
or is it silence you’ll be sendin?

let’s play again then
fake it til you make it yeah?
let’s play it again then.

wheel spinning sound f/x

.and so we’ll spin the wheel what should happen.
will ya win smiles or a slapping.
spin spin spin with your grin
lets see what you’ve to win
the wheel has stopped -what’s to happen?

oh hello, Jello
making mountains Aerosol
hair skin and nails!
no, it’s sugar you big twerp
who’d eat plain gelatine…burp

and again the sin
audience are you groanin?
the best art sells so to fertilizers
are you a critic are you the wiser?
course you are  says my grin.

wheel spinning f/x

.and so we’ll spin the wheel what should happen.
will ya win smiles or a slapping.
spin spin spin with your grin
lets see what you’ve to win
the wheel has stopped -what’s to happen?

meet you at check out
code for loose about the store
five minutes you shout….
we all know this is disaster
hurry up pay you’ll leave faster.

golden words into the bin
watch the crumbled papers circling
yep high  high art thought provokin!
code for what the hell is so and so smoking
is it silence for this chagrin?

next time we shall seek
the worst of the week
laugh with us or cry
poetry my oh my  oh my
celebrate art with a wink.

  2. The music makes the audience listen. If they like the tune they may hear the words. Maybe it’s like a pretty plate of food looks appetizing; though, sometimes, the food that looks like, well, you-know, tastes the best.
