    cacian and Tailor! Keeping the theme

    The vanishing

    There once was a poor teacher
    He never got richer.
    His life wsnīt easy
    Cos he was a bit crazy
    And his pupils,
    oh, so lazy!

    One secret day
    he went away,
    after his luck.

    Rumor has it, that he was seen in Alexandria

    Hoping this is nonsense:

    "absolutely nothing!"

    war is inevit-
    able; population BOOM
    to assuage conceit
    and global idiocy -
    where are my iodine pills ?

    Answer with quote working!

    Saw Life is Beautiful and loved it. Benigni had a very radioactive theme at hand. Today I think that for the hard current times, the film is maybe too optimistic. Still one wishes that that story might have been real.

    About the Google link on atomic war:

    I didnīt know if to laugh or to cry. I think our post war generation had and still has the illusion of escaping of having to follow those careful instructions. Looked what could be found about the theme in Portuguese: rather obviously some translations of US material.

    Yeah, I still remember nightmares past resulting from "duck and cover" drills in 1960- and "living" in the Cold War Era Part-1; a time when neighbors built their own fallout shelters.

    In Memorial: tailor

    There once was a man named tailor
    Who had calculated the local fallout scalar
    While hoping not to be at ground zero,
    Wishing he was a superhero,
    Hoping he hadn't misplaced his inhaler.
    (He did)

    my tinfoil hat/madness: acrostic

    my tinfoil hat is worn with great pride
    and by its precepts it is my guide
    domicile partner "you're insane!" cried
    notwithstanding I lost my bride
    eclectic in my preparations I attempted, I tried
    secretly preparing a shelter in which to abide
    somehow to survive a nuke or alien invasion (hide!)

    Empathize with the poem but didnīt install nukeblast

    We say that God is Brazilian!

    Q: Where are you shelters in case of war?
    A: What do we need shelters for?
    Q: Well, to hide in case of a nuclear conflagration.
    A: A nuclear what?
    Q(paciently): Conflagration! I mean if someone throws a bomb and everything goes BOOM!
    A: (pensively):I see what you mean. There are no shelters. We donīt need them.
    Q:Why?
    A: Because such disagreeable things as BOOM donīt happen here. Only in foreign countries.
    Q: But wouldnīt it be better to prevent any damage?
    A: Oh, preventing damage is so boring. If really anything goes BOOM, mind Iīm not saying it is going to happen for it is not, we will order the urgent building of shelters two days after with a dead line till the end of the year that can of course be extended as often as necessary. But where are you?
    Q has vanished.

    PS-The text is invented, the atitude not.

    Lol.

    A necessary acrostic

    Some red on the
    horizon hereabouts.
    Endless attacks to Ukraine
    leaving little hope.
    Tried population. Trials. Tiredness
    Empty talks taking time
    Regrets without relief

    despite feelings
    love has meanings
    it is up to
    anything
    that seeks
    the one special
    dealing
    to rearrange the appealing
    it ain't easy
    till is breezy
    gone with the wind
    is leading!
    it may never try
    but when it does it sigh
    it is just that
    good
    it fly

    A Lame Limerick

    There once were men who stole grapes
    Fascinated by their spherical shapes
    The grapes were rather juicy
    And the men danced the Watusi
    Laughing as they made their escapes

    in time
    comes the rhyme
    whatever lay words
    sense may not
    stand rehearsed when
    feelings are made
    worst
    best let
    sound take
    first
    and next with a pleasure
    is a musical leisure
    and everything rearrange
    better.
