Five Common Mistakes That Novice Poets Make

"Pray not for the rabbits in the meadow;
Hope instead, that the rabbits pray for you."
- Elmer Fudd Kennedy

"Consider the rabbits of the meadow, how they multiply;  
they dress not, neither do they spin:
And yet I say unto you, that even Solomon in all
his glory was not arrayed as one of these."
- Wabbit 6:28-29




"Dark and clear,
Changing,
The world is orange--
I pray for the rabbits
In the meadow."



Explication:
The orange world is one experiencing global cooling caused
by an excess of dust in the atmosphere that was injected
there by either an asteroid impact, a volcanic eruption,
or an atomic explosion. The lower atmosphere, in these events,
clears fairly quickly; what stays up is the dust in the
upper atmosphere which blocks the sun's radiation.

So we have:
Dark, clear, changing, orange, and the rabbits (being up
shit creek) are INDEED in need of prayers.

This excerpt is NOT meaningless or incoherent; the fault
here lies with the curse of all knowledgeable writers:
stupid fucking readers.

Ray

P.S. The irony that both the 'death sky' and carrots share
the same colour is almost too much to bear.

P.P.S. And yes, discussing its resonance with Easter requires
a thread all its own.

P.P.P.S. Challenge: Write a poem that includes all five.
