ROCKY ROADS AND LOYAL FRIENDS

ROCKY ROADS AND LOYAL FRIENDS

If my life is like a truck,

Its shocks are surely shot,

Rockin’ down this rocky road,

Bad luck is all I’ve got,

 

No job, no life, no dough,

Just sickness, death, and grief,

Happiness is my foe,

A bottle: my relief,

 

But on this rocky road beside me,

My one true, loyal friend,

My dog will not deride me,

He’ll stick by me til the end.   😊

BACKWARDS STUMP-JUMPING LOVE!

BACKWARDS STUMP-JUMPING LOVE!

I love you — you inspire it,

Beyond all measure,

Beyond any pirate’s

Buried treasure,

 

You make me bold,

You fill my heart,

When my battery’s cold,

You make it start,

 

I’d write a song, it’s true,

But sadly, I lack words,

But Darling, please know, for you,

I’d jump a stump backwards!   😊

THE KEYS TO HAPPINESS!

THE KEYS TO HAPPINESS

The keys to happiness

Include lots of love,

Including love

For God above,

 

And take care of the Earth,

Along with your pets,

Make lots of mirth,

But there’s more, yet,

 

Always say “thank you,”

Do right, when no one sees,

Dance in the rain,

And always say “please,”

 

Be ambitious, be bold,

Always work hard,

Even when told

You’ve been dealt the wrong card,

 

Eat lots of ice cream

And a little bit of kale,

Listen to your lawyer,

And stay out of jail!

 

Hug your mother,

Love your lover,

And just be kind

To one another!   😊

HOME FOR CHRISTMAS!

HOME FOR CHRISTMAS!

I don’t want to go home for Christmas,

There is no peace at home,

I’d rather visit Panama’s Isthmus,

Or drive dog sleds up at Nome,

 

It’s not I don’t love my family,

All my uncles, aunts, and their brats,

But I just want some peace this year,

That is where I’m at,

 

But I love my nephews and niece,

And enjoyed their laughter in the past,

Maybe I shouldn’t choose peace,

They’re growing up so fast,

 

And my aunt’s fruitcake “brick,”

Oh, I love her so,

But what’s her recipe trick,

It’s a big “ho ho NO!”

 

And then, there’s my dear grandma,

Such bad health in the past,

Who knows, now, if I don’t go,

This could be her last,

 

So, yes, I’ve changed my mind,

You will find me this year at home,

I choose love over peace,

Maybe, next year, I’ll choose Nome!   😊
