... a specific response to Larry's fine sonnet, Not Alone
in Hermes Naughty Loan
I too am so impressed to read your work;
It seems that I've neglected reading here.
So here I am and trouncing like a jerk,
I leave the path and venture without fear
of stepping on your feet or on some home
of insects, vermin, birds or who knows what
to wander off where'er my eyes may roam
and run or play or simply rest my butt.
A cautious step is something that I've not
been taught, perhaps is now too late to learn.
If I go on like this, will I be caught
and sent away to somewhere I will burn
forever for my lacking social skills
and racking up so many hidden kills?© MLeeDickensson 23 June 2017
