Welcome to Jingle Poetry @ The Gooseberry Garden, where we celebrate friendships, relationships, and people around us…

This week, we have a variety of submission that touch the topic in depth, Thanks to all of you who have graced our place, Bless your Weekend.

For Week 9 poem of the week, the winner is given to a handsome poet, who has been a fantastic writer and strong supporter, his blog name is Catnip, his pen name is Timoteo,

Read his poem in detail here:


So is it that you are afraid
I might use your comments section
like the wall
of a public restroom stall?

Hell...y'all should be so lucky.

Some of the best wit
I ever saw
appeared in that little cubicle
where minions sat
and shat
and posted their witticisms
in that minimalist style
so reminiscent of Hemingway
or Raymond Carver
for all succeeding thinkers
and stinkers
to ponder and reflect upon--
next to the phone number
of some girl
who would show you a good time.

I never called
though I was tempted.

And who could ever forget
that timeless classic:

Here I sit
all broken hearted
ran sixteen blocks
and only farted

Those anonymous writers
were carrying forward the legacy
of the prehistoric cave artists--
or less romantic perhaps
they were the forerunners of the taggers.

It was the closest thing to the internet we had--
especially when the crapper
was located inside
an international airport terminal.

So no
I'm not concerned
about offending the laity.

I prefer spontaneity.

So come one
come all
and scribble something
on my wall.

It's only words
(as the Bee Gees once said)
after all.


Poet Timoteo’s poetry is very refreshing, he often writes about topics or subjects very rare yet very interesting, and with a sense of humor, he has been submitting to Jingle Poetry Community every single week ever since he started 10 months ago, quite amazing supporter and talent to us.
