A Poem


There once was a blogger named “Momus”

Who wrote his posts so that few would notice

Until he met Sight

And Sandi one night

But his attempt at poetry was still bogus

This totally inexcusable attempt at poetry was inspired by Sight and Sandi, who have taken up residence in, and have completely dominated, the comments section of several of my recent posts, and who also demanded that a poetry-hater like me take a shot at writing poetry. And so I did and here it is. See?

As a point of clarification, I’m Fandango, not Momus. However, it’s much harder to rhyme anything with Fandango than it is to rhyme with Momus. And Sight suggested in one of his many comments on one of my posts that I should change my name to Momus, who, for what it’s worth, was the personification of satire and mockery in Greek mythology. Ask him why, because it beats the shit out of me!

    Oh, you clever, clever person you! I promise never to understand poems fully, but always comment plenty! Does the happy face emoji have a tongue studded piercing? (and I think that girl back in the day, would appreciate this…or fire you again)

      Yeah, there’s a stud in its tongue that I failed to notice before. Maybe it means “stick a pin in it,” as in save it for later. Or not?

    One starts somewhere doesn’t one….
    Fandango rhymes with jango (A dance mocking the well-known Tango. Often danced to Tango music, this dance is to be danced with a serious face but a jovial spirit. The point is to be absolutely ridiculous, and has even become a competition to see who, on the dance floor, can pull off the most humorous Jango.

    Unknown whether this originated as the Joke Tango, Jive Tango, or named for it’s inventor, James Tango.)

      “Tango.” Why couldn’t I think about that? All I could conjur up was “Django,” from the movie from 2012 staring Jamie Foxx as a freed slave.
