JB's Querying Blues

Here’s a poem, posted over at The Bilge, by Peter Radclyffe
It really made my day…

There must be some kind of way to publish this, said JB in The Bilge
It’s finished & I must find some way to pay these winter bills
Donn* has already been thru this & this might be his fate
So let us all wish her the best
The hour is getting late
All around the WBF** lookouts kept a view
While sailors, painters came & went
& a few well you know who
Outside in the distance, a Detroit diesel growled,
2 agents were approaching, the wind began to howl

(a little take-off of Bob Dylan's All Along The Watchtower)

Thanks Peter!

  1. It's funny. Hope those agents make it into dock!

  2. Yeah, Liza, me too!
    I'm just glad that the guys at The Bilge humor me...

  3. Messin' around at The Bilge is a good way to kill time--er, more like procrastinate. Next week I'll get serious...

  4. Good luck! I hope that wind dies down a little bit. :)

  5. Thanks, Elana--and thanks for stopping by!
