A MODERN JACK AND JILL TALE

A MODERN JACK AND JILL TALE

Jack and Jill went up the hill

To fetch a pale of water,

They both fell down

And hired lawyers from town,

And litigated ever after!

 

Before the well owner could say, “whas-sup?”

Both Jack and Jill had lawyered up,

Do you think it’s fair — is or is’n?

The poor well owner was sent to prison!

 

Then, Jack sued Jill, as another attack!

And Jill hired more lawyers and sued Jack right back!

The well was closed down when Jill sought an injunction,

Then, without water, the town could no longer function.

 

And so, you’ve heard my tale, a sad, sad tale,

Everyone sued everyone, it was litigious hell,

And in the town, there was no more laughter,

As all the lawyers litigated ever after.   😦

THE FORGOTTEN POEM

THE FORGOTTEN POEM

I had composed a great poem—a poem for the ages.

It would surely have made me one of the great sages!

But sadly, I’ve forgotten it—I don’t have a clue,

So, tragically, today, I have nothing for you!

 

Could my poem have been about green geese flying south?

Or was it, maybe, about cold sores in your mouth?

Could it have been about 1000 uses for dental floss?

Or about honest politicians—no way, I’m at a loss!

 

So, for today, I hope you’ll see fit,

To forgive my oversight for just a bit,

And tomorrow, I will try again to appease

And maybe I’ll write about those flying green geese! 😊

DAUGHTERS AND THEIR DADS

DAUGHTERS AND THEIR DADS

When she was first born,

Her daddy held her in his arms,

And from that first morn,

He’d vow to save her from all harm,

 

Daughters and their daddies

Have a special bond, you see,

A love no one taught her,

A love born naturally,

 

Although she’s now grown,

She’s still his precious pearl,

Both of them have always known

She’ll stay his little girl!

 

Today is her wedding day,

And though it may appear

He is happy and okay,

Inside, he’ll shed a tear.

 

Yes, daughters and their daddies

Have a special bond, you see,

A love no one taught her,

A love born naturally.   🙂
