Smells
« on: February 04, 2008, 12:25 AM »
Smells
Smells from wells
Smells from shells
Smells from hell

Inhale
Inhale to ventilate
Inhale to titillate
Inhale to aspirate

Gasp
Gasp in volumes
Gasp in living rooms
Gasp in foggy plumes

Redolence
Redolence from socks
Redolence from jocks
Redolence from Goldilocks

Hold your nose
and hope it goes
the way of other
stinky poems and prose

Splashing through the halls, nose high in air, sniffing for an aroma most foul, zips it into this thread, yelps, covers his nose, and exclaims, eureka, I found it.  Holding his breath, he makes a swift exit, and summons the fire brigade.

An action promulgated out of desperation will inevitably end in tragedy; for as its anagram so aptly foretells:  A rope ends it. �

A smell can tell
from whence we ate.
Without the aid
of spoon or plate.
Yet one may offer
the golden flame.
But who would live
to lay the blame.

Merlin, my man, me thinks you hath been sniffing too much bad haggis, snitched from the Scotsman passed out near the edge of the roadway. T'would better have been place under his kilt, let him wake and think he had the pox or his bagpipe rotted in the sun.   :blusmoke

Hope thee are well, my virtual friend. We pass so seldom these days. But the glens will bloom soon and fresh lambs will be upon us.

Dia duit, a Dearthair.
Well met.

And you know I woudlst only say, "Feis ort" to a bloody Scot.

 Bowing humbly.
IF so, the wraiths are defeated, if only for a moment.
