the fish waits for jim murphy

no downstairs doorbell

it might've been a nice house
where is jim murphy?
maybe jim murphy drives an accord.
here he comes
there he goes
maybe jim murphy drives a chevy suburban?
not jim murphy
there's a light on in the front window
here's jim murphy
that's not jim murphy
ford windstar?
not jim murphy
nondescript pickup truck?
not jim murfee
acura, lowered, bass thumpn?
it's a bandito, but it's
not jim merfeee
it looks like it has a nice yard
but jim murphy's not in it
the porch is kinda shitty
and jim murppee is certainly not on it
(we are)
did you ring the doorbell?
did you try downstairs too
there's no downstairs jim myrf....
no downstairs doorbell
there's a cat
maybe the cat's jim mrfiy
didn't you talk to jim murphy?
i talked to someone who said
he was jim murphy
but he may not have been
maybe that's jim murray
he doesn't look like he sounded
maybe jim murphy's a drunk
let's go

yay! an oldben poem - it's been a while since i've had this most singular pleasure.

i esp. like the way murphy (who i am increasingly curious about as well) is mispelled through out the poem - it really works ;)

the elusive jim murphy...i think i shall leave it to oldben to release any details...

on the other hand, if this is what happens when i go to bed violently ill at 8:30...i maybe ought to go to bed early more makes me that happy when oldben visits the fish...
