A TRIP BACK HOME!

A TRIP BACK HOME!

I took my love back home

To meet my kin,

You’ll never guess

What happened then!

 

Ma was on the front porch,

As was her habit,

Canning beans and knitting,

All while skinning a rabbit,

 

Pa was out back,

Dancing a jig,

While sharing a jug

With a one-eyed pig,

 

Things went plum crazy

After that,

My love met Uncle Clem

With his coonskin hat,

 

Things were jest fine

Til Clem tipped his cap,

And my love saw the raccoon

Was still a living chap!

 

My love skedaddled,

It’s half past noon,

Tell her I love her

And to come back soon!   😊

TRUE SIGNS HE’S NOT YOUR VALENTINE!

TRUE SIGNS HE’S NOT YOUR VALENTINE!

How can you tell?

Is there a sign?

That he’s really not

Your true Valentine?

 

For instance, does he track mud

Onto your floor?

If so, then quickly, show him

Back out the door!

 

Does he watch Shakira dance

“Just for her song?”

Then, it may be a sign

He’s just “Mr. Wrong!”

 

And when you’re not watching,

Can you also tell that

He’s really trading insults

With your sweet little cat?

 

And does he react to all your plans

Like he’s diseased with Mad Cow?

Then, you know he’s not “Mr. Right,”

It’s a sign he’s “Mr. Right NOW!”   😊

I WISH

I WISH

I wish I could live

Free and loose,

In a faraway forest,

In an old red caboose,

 

I wish I could live

In a lighthouse on the beach,

I’d shine my light for ships

As far as it could reach,

 

I wish I could live

On Tahitian sand

And learn to paint

Like Paul Gauguin,

 

I wish I could live

Anywhere with you,

Let’s travel, my Love,

And dream together, too!   😊
