TODAY IS THE FIRST DAY OF MY LIFE

A GOOD DAY IS WHEN THE FAMILY IS ALL TOGETHER

THE STATE OF STATES!

DON'T MESS WITH VETERANS

BROTHERHOOD OF VETERANS



POETRY

I WAS THINKING OF GIVING A WEATHER REPORT

LOVE AND WATCH OUT FOR THE SALT SHAKER

RUDE AND INCONSIDERATE POETS

ABUSED CHILDREN CHARITY

SOOTY GREY-Dreamweaver

REALITY IS

DANCING WITH THE BOGGEYMAN

THE OLDER YOU GET

WOULDN'T IT BE NICE

I WAS NEVER PERFECT

TAKING SIDES

SOMEWHAT MATURITY

IT'S THE FOURTH

NO TEARS FALLING FROM THIS PROUD CHIEFS EYES

SENSE OF HUMOR

ELVIS AND THE SEATTLE WORLDS FAIR

DON'T LOVE YOU ANY MORE

AINT OLDTIMERS WONDERFUL?

FOURTH OF JULY FIREWORKS

GOD'S COUNTY

RETURNING THIS TO A POETRY SITE

SILENT ARE THE SOUNDS

COULD NOT LET THIS GO BY

THINGS BOTHERING ME

ALL MEN ARE CREATED EQUAL

In my own mind I was close
Close is relative to the thinker
and in my youth a stinker!
Mom taught me the Ten Commandments
Tried to test each one
Failed each test!
Not to commit adultery
Covet thy neighbors wife?
She was old an ugly
Mom said say something nice
Now her daughter in the second grade
I thought her quite pretty
"Punky I hate you!"
That is somewhat a turn off
Scratch that one off the list
I learned about sex in the second grade
I was a boy not a girl
Girls were pure evil
Pretty girls were the worst
Some pretty ugly girls were pretty inside
Now some people never figure it out
In the mid teens I mellowed a bit
Had already lost one tooth
Girls were not worth fighting for
The pretty girl who hated me
She left holding his bloody nose
How do you figure?
Now that I am old and grey
The Commandments are easy to obey
You wait at Heavens gate
For Jesus to take away all your sins
I figure I have to wait longer than most
That's why I try to stall each day getting there
Each morning is a brand new beginning
Lucky for old timers I can forget what I did yesterday
Can't get in that much trouble anyway
But it is kinda nice I get to meet new people
"You say we been married 55 years?"
But I often ask why I am being punished
For what I did in my youth
NO NO no I love this woman
I know her name it is Dear! Yes Dear!
I mean the day I lost all my marbles to this guy
He's the loser he took my old girlfriend
I ended up with a $700 Dental bill
I won the fight he got the girl and my marbles
He looked more manly with the broken nose
She later had all my marbles and his house
See proof that girls are Evil even pretty ones
