Weekly Scribblings #76, and our task is to use one of a few phrases using the word "blank" that Rommy has given us. While my poem is humorous, there's a bit of truth in it. There are sometimes those anonymous persons who seem to blend into a crowd and disappear....those who you don't remember on the morrow. Submitted to Poets & Storytellers United, June 30, 2021.
THE MAN WHO WASN'T THERE
There once was a fellow named Horace
Who proved that ignorance is bliss
The ladies identified Horace
By his blank stare and forgettable kiss
But Horace was a happy fellow
Though greatly uninformed was he
What you don’t know won’t hurt you
Was the basis of his philosophy.
In a crowd Horace was hardly noticed
A blank slate with his famous blank stare
In fact, when folks looked closely
He simply wasn’t there !
