Spit ghazal

Look there, on your car's hood: Spit!
So? Any dumb bug could spit.

His mouth's full of cherry pits.
He wonders if he should spit.

With Mountain Dew and Cheetos,
you can create some good spit.

Do you suppose anyone
who achieved sainthood spit?

Rabbit, beef, chicken or fish--
Don't forget: Soak a wood spit.

Organized religion sucks.
They say Jesus withstood spit.

If I just knew how to hawk,
I might fly, or I would spit.

Agnes, whatever you say,
you never understood spit.

How odd. Is spit words like speaking? Or just spit? Please explain?

Agnes said...

I'm not sure I understand the question, Paul. Spit is spit, isn't it? Oh, look. I rhymed. All but one...maybe two of spit here look to be of the bodily fluid sort. But then, I never understood spit. ::grin:: Have you written a spit poem?

Paul said...

No I haven't, I will put it on the list. Apparently you can not call yourself a full fledged poet unless you have a written about your mother. Hmm perhaps I can do both at the same time.
