Poem: Pancakes and Gerbils

When the world is not going,

As planned,

When the hippogriffs are dancing,

With their unbridled friends,

When it’s not even past time for supper,

It can all be a canned bummer,

But the gerbils will make,

The day a little cleaner,

A little bit tastier,

A little less meaner,

Then we will find,

That pancakes fill the spot,

Rip up the onions,

Remove oil stain spots,

And take out the smell,

Of lemon-fresh madness,

Then you will know,

The happiness that is cabbages,

And smash the laptop,

On the watermelon,

And never again fear,

Late-stage capitalism.

But in the meantime,

This is true,

There’s a skeleton inside me—

And a skeleton inside of you.

Want to read something longer by me? How about a whole novel! 

“Just Another Chosen One is a blisteringly paced, action-soaked debut from author Brandon Scott, sure to appeal to those who’ve gotten tired of reading the same old stories about the child of prophecy destined to save the world.” 


Let me hear your opinion.
