Stevie Joe and the Poets of Junebug Holler

As you may already know, I regard most of the local citizenry as insane. However, I still love them. The lastest proof of their insanity is the poetry craze that is now sweeping the Holler. I recently posted some thoughts about poetry on the Stevie Joe Parker's Guide to Life. Before long, Junior, hobbled by sobriety, wrote some of his own. Now, Dickie Jensen joins in. Here's the latest:

In the great beer room

There was a pickle jar

And a stuffed raccoon

And a picture of—

A fat guy shooting the moon

And there were three drunken fools sitting on stools

And two girly posters

And a pizza toaster

And a slot machine

And two drunk teens

And a Swede, a Canuck, and a room full of schmucks

And a cranky old lady who was yelling, “fuck!”

Goodnight room

Goodnight moon

Goodnight fat guy shooting the moon

Goodnight jar

And the stuffed raccoon

Goodnight fools

Goodnight stools

Goodnight posters

And goodnight toaster

Goodnight flakes

And urinal cakes

Goodnight slot machine

And goodnight teens

Goodnight Swede

And goodnight Canuck

Goodnight nobody

Goodnight schmucks

And goodnight to the old lady yelling, “fuck!”

Goodnight barf

Goodnight chair

Goodnight cougars everywhere

Stevie Joe Parker
