Black as the raven
who took flight
into the Black night.
Black as the Blackest
Black hole in outer space.
Black as the rook
Black is old hitler
worlds shiftiest crook.

Hi Windsmoke,
A Dark one this week, goes well with the weather we are having at the moment, it is very dark outside and it's only 4.30, it is pouring here in Brisbane.

I worried for a minute, thinking you were describing your own current mood, then I read the last two lines and breathed a sigh of relief.

Nicely done!

Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds hey Windsmoke, is the music where you get some of your inspiration for your poetry?

Windsmoke. said...

G' Day DAVE: I reckon a lot of people would have given him more than a smack after all the heartache he caused around the world :-).

G' Day PERTH: I find inspiration any where i can including music :-).

Next to RED, Black is my favourite colour (although lots tell me it's not a colour) - so wasn't sure what to expect from your title!

FAB poem - but sadly there are quite a number of names I could think of to rotate through the 'hitler' spot!

Windsmoke. said...

G' Day RED: I also could call him more nasty names to but they would be XXX-Rated :-).
