The World According to Pinocchio         ( a parody on The Walrus and the Carpenter)

His laugh is wet as wet can be
Humour dry as dry
His spittle sprays the crowd because
Spit’s raining from the sky
Fruit and veg fly overhead
As stage-right he did fly

The puppet and his carpenter
Wave the crowd goodbye

  1. ‘Feathers shivered the skin of the river’ is wonderful, observational imagery!

    1. Thank you, but you do understand that The Bluebird is Found Poetry, meaning the text is mined from words found on pages within the book Silence of the Lambs.

      1. Ah, thanks. No i didn’t realise that. Is that lovely phrase lifted entirely then, or did you put the individual words together?


        1. Just the words. I rarely use complete phrases because it’s too easy to follow the source material’s theme or temper. Found poetry IMO should create a whole new piece, not compliment it.
