The Juggler

    Poem Commentary

    I dedicate this poem to the crawling king snake, the little red rooster, a man and woman in a sauna, all ithyphalic jokes ever uttered, and my own ithyphallus.

    The Juggler

    The man stands there with four balls in his hand
    This is all so new to him, he isn't even sure if he can
    Keep these balls in the air, but that was what he planed
    I must try he says because "I am the juggling man"

    Galant hands
    "To do that which I know not"
    He stands
    For just one ball; a final thought

    These women in my mind,
    These balls in the air,
    I love them all so kind,
    And yet my heart is in despair.

    I like this. Humorous and kinda serious at the same time.



    thanks, i wasn't even trying to be humorous. It just comes naturally

    When power leads man towards arrogance, poetry reminds him of his limitations. When power narrows the area of man's concern, poetry reminds him of the richness and diversity of existence. When power corrupts, poetry cleanses.
