One Single Impression: Hollow



There was an old man his leg was hollow
where ever he'd go the cats would follow
he led them up the street and down the street
great thirst had by all and nothing to eat
alone now bottle gone cats left the rink
wasn't him they'd sought rather was his drink

Long time, its great to be back reading your posts on OSI.
Have always loved the way you rhyme, like I once said, you might be P. G. Wodehouse reincarnate!

Love this... you have tied in both prompts very well, leaving the pangs of sarcasm to till the hollow void.

Jim I love the tempo this piece has but coupled with the picture it has an new meaning altogether very poignant.

I love the humor in this although I also feel for the old man. Poor thing! This poem follows iambic pentameter. Very nice. I always like my visit here :)
