Doing a Hobbo!

Doing a Hobbo!

Doing a Hobbo,
what does it mean?
The expression implies
that your brain is not keen
enough to come up with
a quick, witty remark,
needs time to reflect
before making its mark.

Requires contemplation,
reflection, some thought,
then with a deft flick,
the ball's in your court.
A short, pithy poem,
initially funny,
it quickly transpires
is bang on the money.
That's doing a Hobbo,
it is happy, not triste,
then, just as you're chuckling,
you are caught by the twist.

  1. Awesome!! 🙂 This “doing a Hobbo” thing is a unique skill. My wonderful son told me today that Oscar (the dog) is just like me because he leaves little poems for other dogs when we go for walks. 😀 Piddle poems. That, my friend, is “doing a Worms”.

  2. we all want to be smart and quick off the mark in a witty, sparkling conversation — but sometimes the mind is not quick enough, but the other guy’s mind is: you’ve captured this problem well 🙂
