Ask me that which I hold dear and I should answer twice:
Family first, then ice cold beer, would, I think, suffice.
Family for I love them so, they bring me no small pleasure;
Beer is much the same you know – good company in my leisure.
Now ask me what to do without and I would answer thrice:
Broccoli, Hip-Hop, rainbow trout, exact a heavy price.
The first and third both smell like crap; to eat them is a sin,
The second because it sucks to rap, like a Hoover that’s plugged in.
Then ask me what goes through my skull before I start to write
Not so much; I’m pretty dull, a dollar store night light.
Pray bags of gold for all my friends, each time I start to type
Instead I offer my Depends, the only fruit that’s ripe.
And finally ask me why I rhyme instead of usual story,
and I will say “It takes less time,” and “My, that blouse is whorey.”
You other bloggers sure do post a lot; where do you find the time?
Today I choose to save on thought. It’s easier to rhyme.
Yay! I’m glad!
Thanks…I needed a laugh!
I’m glad you liked it! Hmm…bad can be funny too…
Good stuff and certainly saves time. Or does it?
Man, it does for me. two hundred words as opposed to thirteen hundred? No contest. I’m glad you liked it, though.
“Do not reply,” I tell myself,
“You’ve better things to do.”
But, so impressed am I, dear Richard,
Only two references to poo!
Were there two? I admit that I talk a bit much about sacs and boys and ish, but it’s really all I’ve got. Just so you know, it’s only because I like you that I let others see your superior poetry, and I’m glad you have better things to do than to reply to me. How rude…
What a talent!
Haha. You’re too kind. No…Really. I’ve written a lot of poetry inside porta-potties at construction sites, though.
Silliness may occur at this sight – that was just fun 🙂
Thanks! I doubt I’ll be doing it often, though. Rhyming’s like miming; fun for a minute or two, annoying as heck after that.
I hit you again because you’re just so funny so nominated you for The One Lovely Blog Award. If interested, please visit my site at http://susartandfood.wordpress.com/2012/05/17/one-lovely-blog-award/. Have a great day!
Yay for me! Thanks!
Very nice! At least you get something out – I haven’t written in forever and am starting to feel a bit guilty about it. My excuse is that now that the sun is shining, the idea of sitting inside at my laptop seems a waste of what might be the last sunny day, and we all know that laptops don’t work well outdoors. Maybe I should take to night-time writing?
I agree that there doesn’t seem to be a lot of time of late, though there’s plenty of sunshine to go around here(105F yesterday). Night-time is good, if your other half doesn’t mind the dis!
No more ryming, and I mean it! Anyone want a peanut?
I knew I would hear from you eventually!
