Bard Swept Away by Runaway Personification


It wasn’t the singular multitudinous 
Seas incarnadine washing ashore 
On the headland of a poetic coastline, 
It was the breaking 

News of the tsunami inside him 
That took him by surprise, 
Racing as he was headlong 
Towards a receding hairline.

  3. Duncan and Ed:

    I like it that you liked this hair-raising ditty. BTW, regarding the bard in question, one has to wonder if the overworked "his hair stood on end) applies here.
