George Person: Ode to Neruda RESPONSE

Well the essence of the poet is for the poet to extract the essence of life... Capturing this essence in a condensed artistic form, and unleashing it like lightning upon his fellow men.....
Where life is but a metaphor, an extended allegory of the moment where we take license in capturing rare and fleeting events like a great artist of the canvas, where we paint the pictures of great moments, when the event is fresh and the words are ripe within our minds.....
Here's a playful ode...perhaps even a metaphor  a man like Lenin can respect and act upon...everything is in jest...so let me put this special ode to thy test...
Ode to the Commode -
Ode to the commode
Deep in transitory thought
Splashing into a pool of water, not a rose garden
When the air is thick with malodorous residue
Turning on the fan is the thing to do
For when the next passer-by comes to rest
Surely a breath of fresh air
Is certainly the best....
Poet to poet,  pun to pun, the world of words can be exciting and fun...

In response to the unlawful December 1 arrest and detention of Chinese tech giant Huawei's chief financial officer Sabrina Meng Wanzhou by Canadian authorities in Vancouver at the behest of the Trump regime, facing possible unacceptable extradition to the US, Beijing warned its high-tech personnel last month against traveling to America unless it's essential.
