Being Submissive to Words
"Three short elegies to green plants that use the word centaur."
What is a "centaur" anyways?
Is it a horse or simply words mixed together?
I have decided to mix and match the words, as I love being submissive and different anyways,
Please note Ladies and Gentlemen; the word submissive; you can take any which way you please.
"A centaur is a combination of man and horse"
The lone twig peeks out out of the green foliage, like the lead Centaur from a pack of lonely dark horses,
The thin sliver of wood needs to rejoice, unlike those of the leaves that surround him,
Maybe one day, something will grow out of the existence of the lone twig, and the odd combination of textures and shades will produce united green beauty.
But, I really wouldn't count on it,
That twig looks pretty dead to me,
He will never ever be a man,
Nor will he be a horse,
He will forever be a twig, unlike me.
"Centaur words are the words coined by a combination of two words " (Portmanteau Words)
Bonk (bang + conk) the Blog (web + log) that being submissive to words made me do this piece about this green plant that has no Beautility. ( beauty + utility)
I doth Chortle (chuckle +snort) at its sad Televangelist (television + evangelist) state.
It was Toughicult ( tough + difficult) to come up with Faction, ( fact + fiction) to explain it's upcoming demise.
I cry in sorrow at its limited green Cremains. (cremated + remains)
"Freeballin' the Elegie Linda style"
What light peers through the window shrouded in green?
Tis the light that urged and coaxed me to leave,
Hidden in the foliage is the tunnel of darkness that housed me for years,
Until I too became a withered shroud of green leaves.
I could not stand tall, nor breathe,
Because the flowing air housed me in suffocation,
I fought, I screamed, and finally the Centaur rescued me.
Up onto his back I climbed,
To leap, to run and to rejoice,
Off into the light I went, scaling the large green leaves into the depths of the ceiling - to escape the withering of my soul.
