Here it is - a slightly different take, but....

Leaf Blower

A middle-aged man nearby
Is clearing up some leaves.
He swings the blower round;
Enjoys its phallic whirl.
It reminds him of the time
When he could get the girl.

Pit Yakker! ( Or Yacker, Yakka). A person from a coal mining village, mainly associated with the North East of England. Originally a derogatory term, but we now embrace it as our own! Proud to be a Pit Yakker! (I'm not a Geordie) 😁 I'm sure that's cleared it up for ye D.K...😂

dk.,
Having submitted the poem you can still alter it by using the same method or so I think. I have never experienced any problem with altering a draft or the end product.
Happy New Year

dk.,
The answer to your query is Yes, you can edit after posting a poem. Simply look at your work and press the edit button which is close to your poem , make any alterations or corrections you need, then press update button which is lower on the same page and hey presto.
Happy New Year.

Autumn. Not sure about "desperate". I'm a sucker for anything remotely interesting that helps pass the time. Cheers ?

Thanks, dk. You are very kind. We may have to agree to disagree about climate change though.

Thank you for your graphic description of a doodle bug. I shall try to avoid them. Thanks giving baffles me. What and for whom are you thanking. We save our turkeys until Christmas. These days they cost a fortune.
Happy Thanksgiving. Don't overdo it.

dk.,
Thanks. I associate with both the high and low, whatever that means. Praise where praise is due and similarly so with criticism which needs to be constructive and not negative. Poetry and those who write it are strong individuals with well thought out ideas and the innate ability to describe what we see and our thoughts. We are both no exceptions to this. Write what you feel inspired to write, avoid the frivolous and write with pen and paper. The hand is connected to the arm which is in turn connected to the body which holds the mind. Poetry needs to flow from the mind and does not come well from stabbing away at key boards and peering into screens with bleary eyes.

I was wondering why I only saw your posts when someone comments on them. And its because I'd blocked you! ? By accident of course! But now I'm, once again, ready to receive your genius ...I'm waiting...?

Agree absolutely with Keith. Was definitely impressed with the butterfly poem, really beautiful. Am getting quite jealous! What has happened to change your contributions so drastically? I enjoywriting 'frivolous' stuff too, they are like word games. Haven't abandoned anyone! Keep up the good work.

When you put your mind to writing good poetry you produce some fine work. Try and avoid the frivolous. You are a good poet.

Nice parrot story - my father was phoned by a nice, but very conventional old spinster, who asked him for assistance. He discovered she had bought a parrot, whom she had taught to say all the usual, Hello, How are you? etc etc., but it had started to swear like a trooper, and she couldn't understand why. Neither could my father, as her visitors were all eminently respectable. He discovered, however, that she put it out at the end of the garden on sunny days. On inspection, he saw there was a golf course over the hedge, and a huge bunker!!!!!!!!!! He then suggested she put it out in the front garden!

Hi DK, hoped you'd got rid of me did you!!!? I WILL BE BACK.
Have been busy, (a euphemism for up to my neck in it), with family health problems. Nothing that can't be cured/treated, luckily, but everything seems to come all together. What with making appointments, having and organising various tests, consoling, minimising, comforting, the nitty gritty etc. etc. haven't had a moment for myself. Have two or three pieces of doggerel to put on when I have time. Had you already dug another hole for me?! Can' t wait to catch up on what I've been missing. I always enjoy your stuff. Jennifer

Thanks, I enjoyed Spain for the warmth, the cost of living and the quality of life which is far less stressful than in the UK. However, I am an Englishman and there is no place like home. I am not a European. My language, culture and the freedom we enjoy in the UK is incomparable. God Save the Queen!

to be covided = to have covid, (not grammatically correct!) You are far too easily shocked. I enjoy reading your poems, believe it or not. Keep digging, Jennifer

Hello DK! Not covided ,just too many weeks of far too hot weather, well over 30C every day. Now am coming back to life again, as it is cool at night so one can sleep. How do you know she's plotting? What clues have you found? Gave my husband, unintentionally, please believe me!!!! an overdose of something he takes, and he behaved like a lamb for a week. The family all think it was a trial run! Can't you outsmart her? What happened to the big hole you dug in the yard, found another use for it? Liked Moonlight. You've become quite serious lately, just old age?

Hello DK. Not with your last message, Where did I say that some men are better than others? Agree that all men suffer, but the ones who have been through a war or from the consequences of one, perhaps even more. Am notoriously as thick as a post, in an all male family, even the dog, the gaslighting is always on, so perhaps I've missed something? Can you explain, if you haven't been arrested for doing your wife in?!
