Obscure Knowledge--Harry Calhoun

A hostage and an ostrich
are not the same unless you are

held against your will
with your head in the sand

a shorthand stroke abbreviation
is an ampersand

peeing on a jellyfish sting
will make the swelling go down

so I guess don’t pee on an erection
unless you have no use for it

and a spoonful of sugar
makes the medicine go down

but it takes some other chemistry

to make a woman want to do it


  1. Calhoun, that has to be your weirdest poem EVER, and that's sayin' somethin'. Still, editrices, thanks for publishing it! -- Harry

  2. We like to do weird. Plus, we have a thing for ostriches. You're welcome.
