You Can't Make It Up - A Magpie Tale

You Can't Make It Up

This is what happens
during the blue moon, you said
floating off stage right.
It is confusing
I must admit. Then I scratch
myself, my stray itch
brought on by the likes
of you and your departure.
You will leave a hole
that no elephant
can fill, trunk or no, I say.
The lighting is odd.

  2. I like the effects of the blue moon, the departure of which can never be replaced ~ The drink I described in my post is an asian delicacy, like bubble tea ~

  5. Is the humor intentional or just my weird thinking? I mean there is more 'oddities' going on here than just the lighting. I found your last line funny and I laughed out loud. It was so understated. I loved this, Christopher, thanks. =D

  7. Is the humor intentional? Ummm. I will have to check. Tess thought it was melancholy. I will have to check on that too. Grace thought the Blue Moon had the responsibility. Ritva liked it that I actually have to scratch from time to time. Hank thought I was pretty busy and Berowne that I was pretty good at this. Linda suspects me of intentional humor and Brian thinks the odd lighting is def the Blue Moon. I am still checking. I will get back to you all on this if I ever find out what's really going on.

The chicken crossed the road. That's poultry in motion.
