What’s It All About, Postie?

What you wrote “is a disgrace to the world of poems!”

The reply of a happy-camper blogger. So ……

What’s it all about, postie?

Are you just

a letter carrier



a precocious kid

scribbling away

on the skids?


Is it for

the brief thrill

that you live?

What is it all about, postie?

To find

true-blue followers

and bask

in their comments?

To earn

some fame


your funny

even make

some money?

Or better yet

briefly savor

wild honey?

Be admired

even remembered

in the annuals

of blogging history,


not dismembered!?



as a postie

with the mostie?🥴


What is it

really all about,

postie, postie?

If not really

to just live,

love, learn

and kid?

And lastly

to leave

a mark

in somebody’s



a sprinkling

of your own

personal foxy moxie?

and what

is that

loony cartoony thing

all about,


May all your poems

Rest In Peace!

Not pieces!

    Me, I want to savor wild honey.
    A socially conscious rabbit, I see…believes in planned litterhood.
