SHRIEK!

SLAP!

WHACK!

BLAM!

Let’s shout some life into this verse!

Get the juices flowing!

Is there anything that rhymes with onomatopoeia?

THWAK!

SPLASH!

ZING!

The colorful comic book days of youthful exuberance

fling themselves with wildest abandon

toward the deepest darkest crannies of the mind

PHEW!

CHA-CHING!

PRRAANNGGG!

And searing light splatters itself recklessly

in dozens of dazzling directions!

PA-KOWIE!

  1. love the loud, exuberant word play of this: a great post, Ed !!!!!!

    • Thank you, John. It is a bit silly, of course; kind of the point, I reckon.

      • exactly; it’s also very visual 🙂

  2. I perhaps should have left off the line about onomatopoeia; but I was having visions of hippopotamoiea and what not.

    • Haha! Very creative! Made me think of the old Batman series!! ‘Ka-POW!’

      • LOL! Yes!

  3. WordPress needs a “love” button. I, too, felt like I was watching Batman! Sopapilla rhymes with onomatopoeia.

    • Thank you, Jeff! And… sopapilla!!! Dang. Now I am craving some, freshly fried with plenty of (local) honey!! Or maybe “stuffed” with meat and cheese!

      • Mmm! That sounds good!
