Forget What You Said About Elk, While Trapped In A Meat Locker...

I never saw the elk today
Stupid beasts they are
Why did it get in my way?
It went and wrecked my car

The animal dead and cooling
An awful crash, I hit my head
Now I'll have to be car-pooling
I'm glad that sumbitch is dead!

Oh shit... Don't tell me now
I've fallen in the locker
The door got shut on me somehow
Now I'm a dead mo'foker

I kicked and heaved a bit
Got me free at last
Now where the fock was I?
The time's gone by so fast

Hmmm... I can't quite remember
What was I speaking of?
Something about November?
Hunting Elk, I think it was

Style / type: 
Structured: Western
Review Request (Intensity): 
I want the raw truth, feel free to knock me on my back
Review Request (Direction): 
What did you think of my title?
How does this theme appeal to you?
How was the beginning/ending of the poem?
Last few words: 
This is the result of a computer generated title for a poem. You can choose from a few different titles. The title was "Forget what you said about Elk, while trapped in a meat locker." I took the first one that was offered, because of the challenge. It was great fun and I think I will do more of them, so if you see a bunch of weird titles and poems...

You are way too good at this! Somehow it makes perfect sense! My face hurts from laughing, and I love your crazy, hysterical language!
Thank you!
L

to hurt your face, but I hope the smile makes it better. You're welcome to laugh at my language anytime. I'll keep them coming
as long as I can get such responses. ~ Geez.

This is awesome and funny Geez! Very well done, and thanks for providing the context with your comments too. Enjoyed this!

I enjoyed doing it. I have learned that poetry doesn't have to be the same-old same-old. You don't have to write about somber thoughts, epic battles and romance to make a poem. I'm glad to bring a little zany, happiness to the poetry-world! Thanks for the read and comment. ~ Geez.

Hi Geez, what an amusing poem. Good idea to do those challenges, if you come up with poems like this one. I think I should try them.
I can't help feeling sorry for the elk. Had you been drinking, you naughty boy? No, maybe slightly distracted, but you don't let us know that!
The end rhymes are perfect and so is the spacing, but I'm nobody to be telling you this. The title is original, although too long for my liking. The theme is also out of the way, sort of. No nits and thank you for sharing this fun challenge. Best wishes, Gracy

It is always nice to heart from you. The titles are supposed to be the name of the challenge, so I didn't have much choice. I do suppose that I could shorten it some and still be OK. Thanks for stopping by and I would love to see you do some, to see what you come up with. ~ Geez.

Why this seemed so random. Clever idea - random title generation. Might try it.
