Vitamin Dreams

Poem By Herbert Nehrlich

Her dream was interrupted then
as smartly dressed Italian men
surrounded her in the soft sand.
She'd offered one of them her hand,
he let her sip from his Campari
just as the African Safari
had dropped her in the King's domain.
A growl was heard, there would be pain
but only drilling noises heard,
she could not understand a word.
He wore a rather stupid mask
and it was clear that her new task
was just to follow, 'PUSH' they shouted
and as she howed between the sprouted
petunia flowers there was wind,
as through the cockpit Satan grinned.
She urged the captain 'stay awake'
then switched the oven dial to Bake.
There was a crowd to say Farewell
and, dust to dust, she felt unwell.
Out of the ground sprang four black stallions
then she went back to her Italians.

Awoke and found the little pills,
the sun was smiling onto hills,
a boy was leading his two oxen
the pills contained much pyridoxine.

The moral is, you take B-six
your dreaming brain gets one big fix.
And if you take a hefty dose
you'll dream in poetry, not prose.

Such a rough game.
Such skills required.
And popular.

There was a little bumblebee
he went down on his bumble knee
and told the queen that he was gay

The Art Of Writing Limericks

A limerick can be rather funny
when the syllables are on the money.
But when none of it fits
it can give you the shits


I stopped right at the scene of tragedy.
She stood, head bowed, long neck, wings drooping,
and motionless until she saw my face.
Damn, it was obvious, he had been truly slaughtered,

I was not looking when you found me
you stopped just long enough to smile.
I felt your presence all around me
and hoped that you would stay awhile.

A Little Bit Of Darkness

It had gone dark in my world.
An invisible sadness, one of substance
drifted in, from a horizon so far
and so unknown to me,
