Windbag

Posted on

 

 

From your lips

Word balloons drift

A speech bubble blitz

Of braggadocio

Oh Pinocchio

Clouds do not part

For your presence

 

You are marshmallowed

Hollowed

A fairy tale twaddle

Floating on folly

And horse feathers

Oh Romeo

Thy swelled head

Will soften your landing

 

For De’s quadrille prompt over at dVerse.

Write a 44 word poem including the word “balloon”.

  4. This is the first positive use for a swelled head I have heard. I like these lines: “A fairy tale twaddle/Floating on folly”

  6. Mish! This is fantastic. I love the admonition in that last line, and the way this chastises with such humor.

  7. Love the title and response Mish, specially the ending ~ I would like to see the crash though, not a soft landing, ha

  8. Of course I connect this with “The Trump-et”, and I have no wish for a soft landing for him! Very well written!

  9. Ha. I sincerely hope that I’m not a windbag like that.. but we know why they always land softly.
