Down Home Truth Punctures Mountain Top Bump Onna Log Deities

It took a lifetime
But Bear carried
Her burden basket,
As asked,
To the top of the
Slick glass mountain
Only to be told by the
Smirking Mountain Top
Bump Onna Log Deities,
“You’ve got the wrong
Stuff in there.”
“Us Mountain Top
Bump Onna Log Deities told
You to collect
The second scavenger list
Of goodies to bring to us first.”
“Take all this
Valuable heavy
Stuff back down,
Dig a deep hole,
And throw everything
In the hole and bury it.”
“Then bring back this
Other buncha equally heavy
Doodads of no value,
That is really the first list.
Hahaha, hohoho, hehehe”
“Then go back down
Dig up this second list
Of valuable heavy stuff
And bring that stuff
Up here again,
So that we can reject it
In the right order.
Hahaha, hohoho, hehehe.”
Did the weary Bear drop
Her burden basket?
Oh no.
Bear threw it down!!
Jumped all over the
Burden basket
And its valuable and
Heavy contents.
Then Bear threw
As heavy and sharp
As spear heads,
Some honest
Down home truths,
And a few heart-felt
Curses, as well.
The Mountain Top
Bump Onna Log Deities
Laughed so hard they
Forgot to dodge
The harsh truth
And their hot air souls
Were punctured so that
They blurbbblububububed
Off the other
Side of the mountain
Like giant farting balloons.
The Mountain Top
Bump Onna Log Deities
Were never missed.
Except the local mayor
Did notice their absence
On voting day.
Sadly, however,
Bear’s burden basket
Was smashed to nothing.
It had been a fine
And useful basket.
The End
