THE LONELY POET

THE LONELY POET

Poets may write with words so bright,

But inside, they’re dark and lonely,

 

Have this insight about a poet’s plight,

Know it’s not just others only,

 

Loneliness is like a jealous friend,

Which clutches heart and soul so tightly,

 

While some poets may try to pretend,

They wrestle, each day and nightly,

 

So, know it and please hug a poet!

Relieve their utter despair!

 

And really, really show it!

Show a poet you care!   🙂

MY SMOKED ALMOND TREAT!

MY SMOKED ALMOND TREAT!

On the outside,

I looked fine,

But on the inside,

I’d fret and pine,

 

I worried would

I wake each morn,

I worried nightly,

Always torn,

 

And don’t be fooled

By my sweet smile,

Inside, my worries

Stacked and piled,

 

But then…

I tried a healthy treat!

It made me smile,

This treat to eat!

 

The treat is smoked almonds!

Now, I feel great!

I run and jump,

Sky dive, ice skate!

 

Try them, try them!

You will see,

Life’s fun, no worries

At ninety-three!    😊

 

THE WORLD’S WORST VEGGIE!

THE WORLD’S WORST VEGGIE!

Which veggie is the world’s worst?

In my opinion, I pick first…

The brussel sprout!

I say let’s throw ‘em all out!

 

To me, only chef savages

Could eat these small, vile cabbages!

But on the other hand…

Brussel sprouts need not taste bland,

 

With garlic and butter,

And steamed by your “mutter!”

Plus, they have minerals, fiber, and vitamin C,

So, maybe this isn’t a good pick for me,

 

Plus, Old Granny lived so long,

So, picking these may be wrong,

But another veggie which makes me cuss…

Is vile, green asparagus!   🙂

THE “HEEBIE-JEEBIES”

(The “Heebie Jeebies” was a real song, composed and written by Boyd Atkins, which achieved fame when it was recorded by the great Louis Armstrong in 1926).

THE HEEBIE-JEEBIES!

I’d been down in the dumps

And feelin’ kinda frumpy,

I was sick with a cold,

And felt so old and grumpy,

 

But I heard a Louis Armstrong song,

A special song which made me jumpy,

The “Heebie Jeebies” was his song,

And before so very long,

 

My toes started tapping,

Then, my fingers started snapping,

Suddenly, my cold had gone away!

I sang like Doris Day meets LL Cool J!

 

Then, I hit the dance floor

With dance moves, and much, much more,

I even tried to break dance,

Like I had ants in my pants,

 

I sang and danced The Heebie Jeebies,

With lots of dance move freebies!

Now, I feel so great and cool,

Like a young, kickin’ mule!

 

Won’t you come along,

And listen to this song!

The Heebie Jeebies sheds all frowns,

And makes you dance, just like James Brown!    🙂
