Iím wrecked, all in tangles,
I feel like a square.
My ice cubes have melted
And I just donít care.

Iím going in circles,
Iíve tried all the angles
As from uneven barres,
Each participle dangles.

Octagons ate my words, so it seems.
Iím pent up and need to take five.
Perhaps I need to approach the right angle?
Oh, if only old Euclid were still alive.

Ö or Keats? Frost? Or lovely Ogden Nash. (grin)

Hell, I can't even say Matriculating, let alone pronounce it like yew do. ;-)

Ice doesn't melt for talented (albeit short) Vikings.

Katy the critics are always saying that to be successful an author or a poet needs to find their "voice." I know of no other poet who has done a better job at fulfilling this advice than you. Just as Jerry has said, no one can touch you at this kind of humor. You are indeed the First Lady of the double-entendre.

You have the gift of expressing serious thought through humor, Katy. Thank you for sharing this offering. Love and peace to you. Regis

When my ice cubes melt, I drive north until I find more ice; stock up; and drive home - until they melt again. I should probably get a freezer, it would save lots of gas!

To say that katy's lost the plot
Is really quite un-said-a-bull:
For me she hasn't...and will not;
The idea's quite incred-a-bull!
(Posthumous apologies to the great, late Ogden Nash)

I know the feeling, katy, but am unable to articulate it as potently as you have in this gem!

Pick up thy pen and write!
Patrick xxxxx

I'd be lost without Bob Frost;
Sadness retreats when I read Keats;
And my mind holds a meeting with my sense of hum-i-or
When reading Ogden's verses and finding myself transported to merrier from gloomier!

Hey, you got all of us, especially me, who needs Frost, Keats or even Mr. Nash...Ed

though this poem is written in a humorous vein it has a lot of serious wisdom to it and so i define it as neo-concentric humor ... it stimulates the total thought process and that inner funnybone ...

Love it, Katy.

So clever, Katy. You have such a way with humorous poetry...The Den's very own Comedic Queen, you are. Loved this Ogden Nash too!!
Take care,

ahhhh Katy you witty lady,I see the
machinations of your brain equations
have caused flip of lid for Euclid
You're too wise I surmise!heehee ;-)

Reviewed by Jerry Bolton (Reader) 5/13/2005
Aw, thank you for putting Ogden Nash in there with all the heavyweights. my kind of guy. If there wasn't a word for it, Ogden made one up. I see that you are carrying on the tradition. I don't hardly have the cajones to do that, seems a lot of us are like that these days. Nobody, and I mean nobody, can touch you with this kind of humor. Nobody.
