Mad Mad…what was I talking about again? A poem.

Today, Tuesday, October 6th, is Mad Hatter Day, so get your imbecilic nonsense on. I know I did.

Mad Mad…what was I talking about again?

I’m neither here nor there but yonder
smudging the windows of your pains.
Did you know I’ve been seen in seines,
while you stink of Salamander?

Have I seen a girl, much blonder,
than that tailored swift one just there?
Such a question is plain not fair,
I’ll be the hook of her next trill.
But she’ll not catch me standing still
for I’ll pull out my Joyn Mayair.

You might have a bit of fun figuring out some of the words and how they’re used in the story of the poem. Some happened by accident when I read back through. And with a little word change here and there, it jelled. I even ventured into the Lord of the Rings stories, but fortunately thought better.

  1. You have got me there Ron but I absolutely love it. Pains substituted panes, fishing reference as in seines, three musicical references, Tailor Swift, Joyn Mayair , the hook in her trill musical also. A very lyrical piece, even the first line reminds of a song.

    • 🙂 I think you got them all. It had nothing to do with music until i deserted the blonde brownie idea and subsitute ttailored swift. Then it went from there. I alyread had the first four lines done. So a bit weird how fishnets worked with Taylor Swift. And of course, the blonde being referred to is Alice. Thank you for ttaking the time to look through itt. Hope you do something Mad ttoday. 🙂 Or is it day? It’s 6 AM here and I’m just about to go to bed.


      • It’s mid morning here, hope you sleep well. I got the Alice blonde , I think there is a link with Swift’s and nets I am sure that some birds are caught with nets hung between trees sounds evil to me, but another’s link . Perfect for mad hatter’s day ! 💜
