Poems of a Young Man: “Rubber Diamond Chicken” (© KPKeelan)



To live this life so out of place,

an anachronism to take the proverbial cake.

Heigh-ho! I’m the rubber chicken.

Ha-Ha! I’m the whoopee cushion!

I am the rhinestone. (I am the diamond!)

I am the ox before the cart. (I am the cart…)

I am the hitchhiker climbing aboard and rolling in the hay with the farmer’s daughter.

I am the farmer. (I am his daughter!)

I am, don’t you know, the Miner

striking diamonds and casting them away in search of Authentic Rock.

I am the unsuited suitor,

the traitor,

the spy-

and I say:

what use has the world for a rubber diamond chicken?
