The Bohemian Poet

A collection of personal poems and ideas forged through madness and creativity!

So a cold spell hit us today and I’ve got the electric blanket on 3, and my oil heater pumping. Today I wrote my second last exam for 2017 (Which was just… let’s not even go there.) and tomorrow I have my final art practical for the year which I’m actually looking forward to. I hope we get something interesting to draw because last time we got a spinach leaf and that was just sad. But otherwise, it feels good to be finalizing this year. I look back at all the hectic tests, assignments and existential meltdowns with joy, knowing that it’s all over – for now at least.

So hopefully you all have been seeing me cook up all sorts of links and posts online. I ran into a bit of a dilemma with the use of Florence + The Machine’s song, Dog Days Are Over in my previous upload of the first video. It’s all sorted out now, and I have the YouTube Channel up and running showcasing the two promotional videos I’ve made so far. Please make sure you subscribe! Thank you once again for all the likes and clicks, as well as reading all this. It really means a lot to me.

So without any further ado, here is today’s poem…

Did you hear the bird on the pylon today? She was screaming at the top of her lungs, it’s time to play. 

She said to me, “You’ve been trying for so long, and I can see it always goes wrong.”

I replied to the little bird, “I know Tweety, things have turned out quite absurd.”

She asked about what happened to my glass table. 

I told her I sold it for a horse in a stable.

 She mocked me and then asked me why. “Why would you do such a thing,  you stupid boy? You should know that glass tables aren’t toys.”

I said, “How could I keep this table that is used to write if I don’t actually write. The horse gives me the opportunity to do exactly that, bird. You should get off the pylon before you electrocute yourself.”
