Happy Birthday Thomas Alan Waits! Thanx Be To The Muses, You Arrived On This Date……

My birthday poem, for one of my hero’s, Tom Waits

Happy Birthday

Thomas Alan Waits!

Thanx Be To The Muses,

You Arrived On This Date…..

No doubt, propelled

Through the ethos

And the pathos

Tenuously clinging

To the tail of a comet

A comet,

Not of fire and brimstone

But of of mirth and irony.

Tumbling off,

on a wild move

Crossing the milky way

Timbling,

Skipping and stumbling

Ala keystone cops

across

Our solar system

Crashing thru the ozone

and bouncing across

North America

To land in California.

One skip more and

he would have drowned.

One skip less,

he’d a been a Republican!
