Nonsense In The Air


On top of the never fading Rainbow, made of gold

Sits a pink Camel, playing a tiny banjo


From down below the clouds 

Giggle at such a sight

And the purple rain jumps up from the crowd 

to chime in tune with the musical delight


All the while the sun is searching for his hat

Lightning strikes the paper Ark, that’s tumbling in flight


And as a million sweets fall from the Giant’s sack

Onto the heads of the fire flies bright


The Dodo

Awakens from a very long nap


Rollerblading in circles hoping to see…


What all the fuss is about?

                • dusk arising

                  My kinda stuff. Why try to make sense of the world when nonsence is so much more entertaining? How deeply buried is the rainbow's string and where are the bloomin arrows anyway?

                  • Teddy.15

                    nonsense is more fun at the moment even for me Dusk, it's a cruel world so lets just live here for today. Thank you dear poet.

                  • Saxon Crow
