Oh my goodness, Leo:
So she had an affair out of wedlock
and left him alone with his Barlock
while she cavorted with his brother
not the typer
but a lover
This is what happens when you cross O. Henry with Wm. Shakespeare.
Brilliant puns! Truly inspired.
Brendan, I’m so glad it gave you pleasure. I’ve heard of O.Henry but who was this Shakespeare feller? I know there’s a pub named after him…
The Right Reverend Ted is constantly revising the data on the Typewriter Database as he finds better information.
Mike, Thank you for mentioning you liked “The Dead Are Better Than Us” so much that you printed it out. That made my day! I might even write another poem!
Thank you for reconnecting Salinas Valley to John Steinbeck’s books. You have given me the drive to visit there.
May I also ask what is the typewriter picture in your frame “How to use a typewriter” ?
I loved that typewriter poem! Sounds eerily like the trajectory that I am on in my own relationship if I am not careful with splitting my time between family and the typewriters! Lol Brilliant poetry!
Hi Natasha, I’m really glad you liked it. I was just now looking at some pictures of some old amours and thinking: At least my typewriters are still talking to me. Though I’m not sure that augurs well…
