albino Flea
How to Make an Albino Flea Relevant

Cyperspace is dredging up snarks
by nets, hooks, whatnot & doohickeys.
For each new founded snark,
volumes about them follow suit.
Snarks become myths and legends.

How this is relevant to Ukraine
or to the Oscars or the Olympics?
Well, I’m transparent to tell you why.
First of all, I’m keeping the answer
down to a three stanza poem without revision.

The answer is, beat the drums,
that snarks come in many forms,
unknown factors dazzling folks
into the brink of completing themselves.
Albino Flea is what makes Sherlock think.

Academy Awards

Saturday, March 1st, 2014

This a poem Robert Peters wrote sixty years ago but it may be apropos for this moment:
ACADEMY AWARDS

God is our director
and nature is his troupe.

He bellowed through his
megaphone, let his hand droop,
waited for space, a stage, to form
and set each star, creature, entity
in its chalkplace, gave each
his singing, talking role, or
screams, signed on his son
as prompter for the
divine comedy, and stuntman.

When the show closes
aided by various assistant
directors: Buddha, Mahomet,
Aimee Semple MacPherson, He
will make the academy awards
reserving for himself
(stagemanager, writer, lighting
technician, and director)
gold statuettes–human forms
to grace his abode.???????????????????????????????
