Poem A Day December 11th

Vintage Poetry

This is a poem from the past. I wrote this poem in high school, on my desk in math class. The teacher really liked it and invited all the other teachers up to read it before he made me clean all the desks in class; punishment for writing on the desk.

I was inspired to write this poem after I had first seen the movie “The Fisher King”.


Central Park Moon

by Jackie Schneider in 1994ish

Late one night in Central Park

The Moon cast a light and pierced the dark

Along some old benches, among some wet grass

There laid an old man, naked bare assed

He sprung from his slumber to dance in the trees

He danced till the little guy flapped in the breeze

    I like this – the seriousness mixed with the humor.
