Highway Waltz A Different Side of Paradise

As she flashes her strapping bosoms wide
Near Good Forest pulsates dark and wide
Delicate trappings of a vixen rest by her side
Sons and sinners of Babylon race outside …
Naked with wild stallions, Jezebel does glide
She is disguised, but says she has nothing to hide …
Near Black River is swollen with bones and pride
Seeing men are blinded by swells and tides.

Thus was borne the confusing color gray
Scorched beneath a cloud-tangled sky
Banished completely by Heaven’s eye!
‘Twas too heavy a burden to deny …

Near, God here too sits on a patch of blue
Chiseled in red woods grow pines true …
Beneath hard, stony paths brews a stew
God sent, but hell bent, gushes hullabaloo …
Utter greenery leaps from of this showcase
Myths, folklore, and legends inflate its case
Some imprudently try to alter Heaven’s face
‘Tis too much tomfoolery to trace!

We glance at a place where women mourn …
Too many souls raced to toot their horn,
Today, new roadside crosses …were born …
‘Twas a hell of a ride, this way well worn …

Today, we realized worthy died …
Literary haste released and poets cried,
Horns blew, bodies flew by her side …
And the toll cost more than pride …

It's been a while--too long a while. Welcome back!

An excellently penned, richly imaged poem; love the rhyme!

(((HUGS))) and love, Karla. :)

Some great imagery, Jim. Especially those big bosoms. (smiles)
