FRIENDS

Some are friends, for now,

But then, later,

They drop you just like

You’re a hot potato,

 

They don’t care about you,

Your problems or disease,

They live in ivory towers,

Self-absorbed, if you please,

 

Some have shallow souls

And hardened, hollow hearts,

And evil or indifference

Permeate all their parts,

 

So, when you find a true friend,

Treasure them, above gold,

Only they will stick by you,

Until you’re gray and old!

GRANDMA’S BANANA PUDDING!

GRANDMA’S BANANA PUDDING!

I love Grandma’s

Banana pudding,

With wafers and bananas,

It’s a “good-un!”

 

And chocolate pudding,

In a pinch,

And vanilla, too,

It’s a cinch,

 

But I don’t like

Tapioca,

I think it’s just

A “crappy joke-a!”   😊

LIFE’S TRUTHS!

LIFE’S TRUTHS!

I lay, deep down

In dark despair,

Life had grabbed me

And tossed me there,

 

But then, your smile

Filled me with glee,

Perhaps life wants me

To be happy!

 

But then, life is cruel,

Don’t you see,

Your smile was for one

Next to me!

 

But then, I realized,

Forsooth!

Happiness lies within,

That’s the truth!   😊

MY DOG FRED’S ITCH!

MY DOG FRED’S ITCH!

My dog, Fred,

Was really itchin,’

And scratchin’ himself

All over my kitchen,

 

Then, Fred started rubbin,’

His butt, with its mange,

Up and down the front

Of my hot oven range,

 

And the cream on his butt

For Smoky Mountain ticks,

And my hot oven range,

Really didn’t mix,

 

Fred caught on fire,

Before you can say, “cough,”

The flames burned all

Fred’s hair clean off,

 

For the rest of the day,

Fred lay in the ditch,

But one good thing,

The fire cured his itch!   😊

LOVE IS A HEALTH HAZARD!

LOVE IS A HEALTH HAZARD!

Yes, falling in love

Can bring great pleasure,

But also, it wreaks havoc

On your health and blood pressure,

 

You’re stressed when you want

A late-night snack, but

Your selfish lover ate

The very last doughnut,

 

You’re also stressed when fishing

And your health is really shook,

When your lover shouts, “Man up,

And bait your own dang hook!”

 

And your ear drums are pierced,

It’s verifiably factual,

At your lover’s high-pitched laugh,

Like a sick Pterodactyl,

 

Yes, love causes great pain,

Don’t ignore it or guffaw,

We haven’t even gotten to

Sick mothers-in-law!   😊
