too much of a good thing
gorge, and your gorge may rise
not a canyon – a narrow valley,
nearly an anagram of George.
Gorgeous George inspired Muhammad Ali
who went on to beat George Chuvalo,
a blow to the face may cause swelling
not such a good thing.
I thought I would revive this post as part of the dVerse challenge today which is to find beauty in ugliness. This poem, I think, reverses that process by moving from beauty to ugliness. Thanks to Mish at dVerse for the challenge.
