nonsense noise

What is this nonsense foolery
reverbing my old ears?
It radiates annoyingly,
unearthing old dark fears--
What if it forecasts gloomily,
portends the worst of years?
I fear I’ll be dragged noisily
into a world of tears.

Laurie recaps a year of word prompts to the Real Toads, including NONSENSE.

  6. I feel it too, Marian. You capture the emotion well and I enjoy the sound play with the "or," in portend and worst and also the cyclical feeling of nonsense in the beginning and closing with noisily...hmm words are fun to play with, aren't they. :)

  7. Talk about expressing a truth--well done. Fortunately our fears are usually worse than reality!

  9. ...dragged into a world of tears.. this seems to happen willy-nilly, and age is no defense!
    Some authors have the ability to make nonsense rhyme speak volumes about the human condition and I think you got that right here.

  10. Oh, I like this, Marian. Even though your nonsense pretends to portend doom and gloom, it bounces along at a jolly pace. Great fun, I think.

  12. every day gives us a chance to do it better, to do it again. Right?
    let's hope the tears are salty and cleansing if we need to weep.
