Gone Ape

When comes the final
Taking the weight off the feet,
And life
Becomes an abligurition
That only participation
By ad hoc gamers of the hootenanny
May indulge in,
Even pan-loafy elongate rincons
Won’t flummox the grim reaper.
Walking away from the infectódromo
Is as futile
As a scrimshaw exhibit in hell.
A monkeypox
On all us apes
Of genius and of talent
When lands the latest bombshell.

Burnt-Out Flying Monkeyshines

Flying Monkey
‘Came the witching hour

The moon shadow in a scorched earth petri dish,
A dollop of creamy colcannon.
Having taken a bawling out,
The felloes of the ramshackle cart,
Hitched to a shooting star,
Now need patching up,
Their coquetting tryst a farce,
The butterfingers drop a ball of nightmares.
But better to have loved foolishly,
Than not at all, the YSL thinks.
Who feeds on fulgurant false memory?
Oh, what fresh csùfnev madeleine hell,
The postmenopausal birth,
Art in pure production lost,
An endless predator pipeline,
Profiting by the blood of dinosaurs.
No rest for the wicked witches of the west,
Soon warming waters will wash over
The yellow brick road, bringing rest.

Go, Tiger!

Tiger, Tiger

I mean, dear fatuous repat,

Who hasn’t at some point felt that?

Art is now

The compensatory lengthening of time,

The gnomon shadow

Of a pocket pork dial.

It finds futuristic us

Over the hill and far away,

In a sarít of crafternoons

Filled with tactical spoons,

Former ferocious firecrackers,

Now obsequious moist squib simperers,

A corrupted few

Living the dream

Of the incompetent many.

No See Lion

H/T: Simba’s Future. Also, hoping for no increase to selfies with captive-bred cubs…

I saw this on the BBC News App:

Whale ‘swallows’ sea lion: ‘It was a once-in-a-lifetime event’

Wildlife photographer Chase Dekker took the photos while whale watching in California.


From Wikionary: “To intrude on a conversation with disingenuous questions in an attempt to engage in unwanted debate as a form of harassment.”

From Macmillandictionary.com: “In an online conversation, repeatedly asking a person questions or making comments which suggest that you are interested in what they are talking about, but are actually intended to annoy them”

The reference is taken from “WONDERMARK: A Collaboration With The Dead” web comic #1062; “The Terrible Sea Lion

“Becky is being a real Sealion, like, no one wants to debate her wack-ass and she won’t take a hint.”
