The Orange Man of Honor/dVerse

The Orange Man of Honor

Quick-draw at the “OK Corral”
Or…he quickly says 
Whatever comes into his head

So you say
All that he says is quackery or
A big bluff…

But what about the flaming orange hair
And what about the biggly promises
Isn’t he a man of honor

Funny, I've just been writing an orange poem. He's hijacked that colour for good!

brudberg said...

The only thing missing is the orange jumpsuit

De said...

Nice work, Annell. :)

Quick draw indeed - in a biggly and huuuuuge way!

qbit said...

But such tiny hands...

Toni Spencer said...

Fake hair, fake tan....the orange man kills all he touches. Would that he would be on the losing side of a modern day OK Corral.

Oh this is clever and quick witted Annell - well done! I'm chuckling at the scene as you've deftly imagined it .... and mourning for the poor colour "orange" ... *sigh* - it's not the colour's fault! Great word play :)

Frank Hubeny said...

Quickly say whatever comes into his head and it might make sense.

Mary said...

Very clever. Wish it weren't SO true.

Ah, the orange man, he who strikes fear into the heart of reasoning Americans, so full of himself he'd implode if pricked by a thorn, and how can someone with such a small mouth talk from both sides of it, I want to know! Subtle and spot on, my poet friend!

Truedessa said...

ha - he does have a quick tongue saying whatever comes to mind without any thought.

V J Knutson said...

Quick on the draw...maybe not so quick-witted though.

Sherry Blue Sky said...

Lol, i love Bjorn's comment!

Gina Gallyot said...

quick on the draw and quick witted - the entire poem was alike skipping over words so palyfully

Anita Lubesh said...

Very well done.

Dorianna Ric (paintswithwords) said...

'quickly says whatever comes into his head'so aptly said...poem flowed so nicely, short and to the point...love the end, "isn't he a man of honor?

Victoria said...

How many of us speak without thinking, though not on the public stage.

I'm hanging on those "biggly promises"...something good will come of this, like confirmation of an honorable justice.
