The nature of things

intuitive search
roaming in dark room's corner
where is that damn switch?!?!!!?


each of the three receives from him - a pile of moneys
each of the three must wisely spend the pile!
for only one can be selected - to be his one'n'lovely,
the rest will face denial! while winner lives
in happy ever after with 'gorgeous' at her side

the time has come and Prince decides!

the first one owes a sea of noble talents
from poetry through painting into music
musing at this artistic doll, who may become the one!
she spends the money on perfecting skills
that will ensure the House is kept to highest standards
and culture flows from room to room
she smiles, thinking of the perfect picture
just two of them in white, the bride, the groom!

except there is another, her bells posses a louder toll
she has a gift for growing money out of money
she uses the amount and multiplies it - ten-fold!
a financier, strategist, a lady of the business
ensures the House can celebrate the Christmas
with scale and opulence worthy of the Kings!
her perfect image of the wedding - them! exchanging rings!

the third is also quite a catch, intelligent beyond belief
this octa-lingual mademoiselle is gorgeous future of the fief
awards and recognition! modern world research
foreshadow for the House - ascent to status of the torch
for progress! truth of science! She spends the money
reinforcing that alliance...
their wedding day so dearly wished
by love's axiomatic formulae


the Prince is smitten speechless!
how can he choose?!!
between such radically opposing forces

tsunami! earthquake! hurricane!

each one - ferocious claim to fame!
each one can elevate the House beyond it's name!

but as with everything in life, the end will come for every game

he shuts his eyes, his mind, and all ambition
and picks 'The One' with force of intuition
his queen!
his wife!
his love!

this one!!! forget the rest!!!


- so........who was it, mate?
- the one with biggest breasts!

Please do not be offended by this work, especially the ladies, the intent here is to show exactly what is said in the title...and as to the intuition - well it's the last weapon in the armory in "ceteris paribus" situations :) Enjoy!

this is a try at a hokku and a poem combination, and I was the one who challenged poets in the blog 12/20/2010 to have a humorous piece on intuition, please see the blog and works of others on the same topic!
