Memorial Day

I saw a field of rippling flags
With tombstones 'ranged beneath.
It gave me cause for gratitude
And sorrow too, and grief.

Bad Pickup Lines

  • "I would pick you up, but you're too heavy."
  • "I'd buy you a drink, but I can't a Ford to."
Luckily, I am married.  Otherwise, I would be a lonely, lonely man.

Household Wisdom

In thinking on the facts of life
I think it's best to have a wife.

The 50 Yard Dash

When I regard the stately tree
I think, "I'm faster, sure, than thee."

A Quick Look (as I turn a prime number)

With kidlings and bride
I'm burstin' with pride.
So seven and thirty
Is lookin' right purdy.

The Forgetten

Down in my basement there's TV
With channels on it, two or three
Or maybe more?  It's hard to tell.
Beneath the dust that on it fell
Since early winter, months ago,
When men in tights ran to and fro.

I say a prayer for shady snakes
That they too might be blessed.
And maybe stop their slithering
And give their hiss a rest.
