Just a nutty wordplay poem on the two words: poet and tree, poetry.

Candidate for the Darwin Award


Poet Up a Tree

Saw a poet up a tree.
it was me. It was me.

Doggerel chased me up that tree.
It was doggerel, it was he.

Now, when I fell from that tree,
I fell on a mighty smart head.

He looked up. He looked down.
"Must have been gravity!" He said.

"I will need a calculus to figure it out.
But that was gravity, I have no doubt."

A squirming squirrel's squirrelly mind,
with holes to dig and nuts to find.

With the gravity of your poetry in mind,
nuggets of nutty wisdom you will find.

For as sure as the nut falls from the tree,
not far does the poet and his poetry.

So, if you're a nut and you know it,
you might be crazy or you might be a poet.

A poet and his words will soon be parted,
gone like the wind or someone who farted.

So if you have a theory to grind, get up,
get busy and climb, climb your behind.

The higher your treetop, the faller your fall,
below might be a genius to catch it all.

But if you can't be a poet up a tree,
just be the best poet you can be.

After all, it's just… poetry.

Such a bright and catchy poem
you've written for me ~
when you're in the treetops,
you write good poetry!

Fun to read and imagine!

You have the quickest, sharpest mind my friend. I admire your work, Everytime I read one of your poems, I am inspired but as you know, the poems in your mind come and go so fast unless you can write them down right away the wind will blow them from that tree. Thank again, you are awesome.

Nice poem Ron. I need to climb that tree - in my mind and unwind. LOL

You had me on a limb with this beauty.

Trees and poetry sure go together, maybe not farting though! Fun digesting this one at any rate.
Reviewed by Jane Noponen Perinacci
All poets are a bit "titched", so I've heard but not due to falling out of trees. We're born that way.

Love ya!

While I read this poem I thought of Keith Richard's fall, though he is not a poet. In fact, I'm sure when he articulated the particulars of his fall, the ramble was far from poetry. But, as you say, "for sure, the nut falls from the tree."

Enough good-hearted laughs in this poem to cure writer's block.

Cute, Ron, sort of a metaphor for poets ups & downs of which we all have & sometimes have not...-e-
Reviewed by Daniel Farmer
Most everyone has a story to tell or something to say, but again most are afraid to ever try to write it down or even try to express it in writ. Like climbing a tree & fear of falling, it's challenging & takes time to do so in our busy lives. The fear of looking like a big "nut" stuck up in a tree and/or falling down keeps most safe on the ground.
A fun visual poem.
Love this one.

Tree huggers, squirrels, poets - parted words and grave befalls - Robert Service would be proud ... nice job, Ron.

A charming and witty exploration of the more serious subject of sanity...that forever question on the minds of those who read poet's work and wonder. For me, I'll take all the wordsmithing you have to offer with sanity as we know it. Kudos.

Heh.Heh . . . Loved this line best . . . "The higher your treetop, the faller your fall," although the entire poem was filled to the tree-top with catchy wordplay. Kickass poem . . .

THE LITERARY REVIEW ... Be warned, Zapinette's gems of insouciant wit tend to become infectious. This wise-child's deceptively worldly innocence takes the entire gamut ..
