Day 13 — OctWriPoMo and dVerse OLN — The Two Harveys

One of my favorite movies | Vintage movies, Favorite movies, Harvey

Harvey One  Harvey the Pooka with Jimmy Stewart           

 

Harvey Weinstein and OIivia Wilde

Harvey Two  Harvey Weinstein and Olivia Wilde

 

                                                       

There are 3 selections today.  First, The Two Harveys, then a freestyle, then a haiku.  Again, these are for mature readers over the age of 18.

 

One is a rabbit
Two is a snake
One is invisible
Two is a flake

One is furry
Two is hairy
One eats carrots
Two eats Mary

One wears a tie
Two wears a robe
One likes to bow
Two likes to probe

One is a gentle soul
Two’s just scary
One is refined
Two’s vulgary

One says please
Two just takes
One says thank you
Two grabs cakes

One hops along
Two strokes his cuke
One is a pooka
Two is a puke

*****************

Robe of terry
Jabba hairy
Octopussychaser
Promises food for
clumps of hydrogen
and helium atoms
Angular chum
Led to the altar
Of the star maker

****************

Corpuscular mogul,
beastly, he needs no full moon —
she’s the one who howls.

Bjorn is today’s host for dVerse’ Open Link Night. 

First published 10/13/17 and now brought back from the archives.  I’d like to tweak it that one is imaginary and one is very real but no time right now.

      Dwight, this was written when Weinstein was either about to get arrested or had just been arrested. Thank you!

          The snakes love having their pictures taken with their victims as evidence they aren’t snakes.

    I think it comes across very strongly which character is imaginary and which real. If only it were the other way around!

    So well done, Lisa! I read much more about the second Harvey than I ever wanted to when I was working on my sexual harassment book. I agree with Ingrid, too!

  14. He was such a creepy person… I wonder how he spends his days today.

      I think of him as Jabba the Hut and love what Princess Leia did to him. In movie circles he had god-like status. I’m thinking of all of the Weinstein movies I’ve watched over the years (Tarantino, one of my favorite directors, made all of his movies through them) and then think of the seedy underbelly of the company. I’m sure the actresses had heard of his rep but that need to be a star had them risking his greasy paws to get there. I hope he’s in gen pop and suffering from MRSA.
