  • Three Weeks

    Bob's scar after 3 weeks.jpg
    This is how Three Weeks shows,
    Since the Crater by my Nose.
    Eye looks Like a Glove Collision,
    In a Ten Round Split Decision.


    Got a Reverse Elvis Sneer,
    I’m not Him that Fact is Clear.
    Though I truly Feel the Blues,
    Have misplaced my Blue Suede Shoes.


    Got inverted “Y Thing” going,
    Added Feature should be Showing.
    Place a Circle and In Line,
    Could be Sporting a Peace Sign.


    Although folks Stopped and Stared,
    My little Dog just never Cared.
    I carry On but If in Doubt,
    Can face the World with Left Face Out.

    looks are like poetry. very deceptive. when understood we all no its not what's on outside but what's inside that counts. bit sad reading this poem.

      I think you're healing well - and have done an admirable job of taking yet another challenge and turning it to rhyme. You rock, Bob!

          Outliving Elvis
          Carl Perkins,
          was the Original
          "Blue Suede"
          muse.
          "But you can knock me down, step in my face
          Slander my name all over the place
          And do anything that you want to do
          But uh uh honey lay off of my shoes"

            Yes - Carl Perkins wrote it but Elvis Presley owned it in my opinion.

                  Bob, this sequel to your earlier poem about the operation is brilliant. The images you've elaborated in each of the first three stanzas are so clever - the references to boxing, Elvis, and the peace sign are handled with a light ruefulness that is just right. This poem is funny, but not trivial; it expresses a spirit unbowed. And the ending where man's best friend offers solidarity is perfect. As usual, the rhyme is solid. What a treat to read!
