I acquired a friend quite recently

Who lives just across the room from me

Whereby my pillow I constant see

His acrobatic activity.

He lives in this house made of thick glass

He makes no noise and doesn’t harass

A more perfect mate one could not ask

Although his presence creates small task.

He requires a meal but once a day

Always remains clear out of my way

Daily the water starts to turn gray

Friday’s the day we flush dirt away.

I still have this friend at my address

I pray he moves soon so I can rest  !

 

HIS NAME IS PHELPS, A BEETA FISH

 

 

 

COMRADERY ( 2018 ) 2018/06/04

As I awake to morning’s sound

The dawn’s exploding all around

I hear bees hum and cats meow

The birds all sing while dogs bow-wow.

The noise of traffic fills the air

While beeping horns annoy and blare

The sidewalks soon begin to crowd

Street vendors hawking goods aloud.

Oh what delight each daylight brings,

A joyous heart that hums and sings,

Along with happiness and glee

Contributes to comradery !

 

 

THIS HOROSCOPE ( 2018 ) 2018/05/13

The moon must be up in the sky

I have this feeling I could cry

But there is nothing wrong with me

Not anything that I could see ?

Perhaps the stars got in my eyes

While I was busy watching skies

Or maybe Venus went astray

In retrograde and lost her way.

This horoscope will have to keep

I think it’s time to go to sleep !

 

 

OPEN ALL OUR EYES ( 2018 ) 2018/04/20

I often think this plan we’ve made

Needs lots of help, a large band-aid

Like an old game we used to play

To whisk our idle hours away.

Remember this now if you please

When you’re on “Broadway” take your ease

You do not have to go to “jail”

Just whiz on by, do not post bail.

However when you pause on GO

Make ready for the final blow

For life is one great big surprise

It’s meant to open all our eyes !

 

FRESH AIR ( 2018 ) 2018/04/15

This morning we opened the windows wide

To let fresh air swish around inside

The breezes blew all of one accord

In every space where the dust had stored.

While a little voice whispered to me

Aren’t you glad to be young and free

Well, that’s half true, I have to admit

But young’s not how I’d describe the fit !

 

 

MUCH GASSIER ( 2018 ) 2018/03/28

It’s sad to think the world we know

Is packing up, prepared to go

Where are we going I can’t say

I haven’t heard a word today

I’m hoping that it’s not to Mars

Although I’m not opposed to stars

I’d much prefer old Jupiter

Though it is so much gassier !

 

 

 

SWEET PEA TOO ( 2018 ) 2018/03/26

Long time ago, I was a little tot

There was this cartoon that I loved a lot !

Oh, Popeye once you were  a bunch of fun

I laughed at all those silly fights you won

I’d like to know about Miss Olive Oyl

Tell me is she still your favorite girl ?

Popeye, of all the foods you love the best

Does your tin-canned spinach still top the rest ?

What have you done with your old corn cob  pipe

You know the one, that pipe you never light ?

I sure am glad that you have hung around

With all  of that odd salty seaman sound

My dears for all the smiles I say thank you

To Popeye,Wimpy, Bluto, Sweet Pea too !
