Hemingway Approach

Poem By Theorem The Truth Serum

a very big number
it is the number
associated with the population
of a small little town
It is the age of an older(not old) human being
It is the length of time that some towns
have been in existence for
but for me it is the number of poems
that I have written here on this earth
I hardly doubt I will ever reach one hundred years old
but you never know anything can happen
I'm more likely to take the Ernest Hemingway approach
for my ending and my exit stage left

Comments about Hemingway Approach

I have every intention of reaching 100 years old. I always tell my family this, they don't believe me but.......I know I will. Great poem. I hope you write hundreds more poems here too. Sincerely, Mary
If you correct the error on line eight you will be excused from taking the Hemingway approach. It's not pleasant. If you act as if you will reach 100 you most likely will. Look at Bob Hope, George Burns et al. H

They bring light

He walks with more than one
shadow lingering behind him.
He looks around anxiously
with eyes that are set on

Destiny hopefully knocks on our door at the right time

I have become ecstatic and full of light

But instead you are a chief
who cooks up inedible morsels
Laser points aimed at your torso

You say that the democrats
are starting a political war.
You have finally told the truth about something.
It's been a political war ever since
