    Limp Dirt- Tall Dreams

    Ok, your humble moderator said i could post it. So blame him!

    I watch the limp, soft dirt
    of typical landscapes.
    I yawn in disappointment.
    yet, slowly
    and methodically,
    a foreplay
    of parts assembled
    there rising
    upon this mound.
    beams erect,
    a monolith
    hard and vertical
    impaling the sky
    yelling,
    "I'm here!
    Swallow me you sky!"

    blame me, I had to satisfy
    my planner's erotic jollies
    with a staff report to vanquish
    a corner yawner.
    Now I drool and dream
    a moist pleasure
    to commute past
    my vertical desire
    a thing so big
    and erect,
    so hard
    and large
    oh my!

    I liked her poem,
    will she post another?

    something erotic or wacked or sad?

    Stop me if you've heard this one...

    An engineer, an architect, and a planner were sitting in a bar debating who designed the female body. The engineer explained that without question an engineer had designed the female body. This position was supported by evidence such as quality of materials, efficiency of the product, and functionally of the parts. The architect stated that it was an architect who designed the female body citing symmetrical design, balance in proportion, and attractive appearance. The planner was not swayed in the least. The planner rose, raised a hand and explained a planner had designed the female form. Evidence? What other explanation could there be for the playground being located so near the waste disposal plant?

    Planners In The Dark?

    Here's a riddle that I developed in my previous job - working in a major U.S. metropolitan city.

    Question:
    How many planners does it take to screw in a lightbulb?


    Answer:
    None! As you all know, we work best when we're kept in the dark!
